When I asked Dean what he wanted to do for his first Father’s Day he said he just wanted to keep it low key. So we decided to take a trip to the National Zoo in DC on Saturday. I recently took Elliott to the Baltimore Zoo and wasn’t very impressed so I didn’t have high expectations for the National Zoo. One of the problems with being spoiled by the Columbus Zoo, I guess. But I was pleasantly surprised! The National Zoo was clean, easy to get to by Metro, laid out well with lots of nice exhibits, and best of all, free!
