We spent the whole day at the DC Zoo, but #1 for Miss Dani was seeing the Pandas!
So the orangutans can climb across these ropes over the heads of the visitors! It was really fun to watch. I am kind of obsessed with them and this was so entertaining.
For dinner we headed down to grab some food at the grocery store near the navy yard. Then back to Caitlin’s to swim at night.
We started our day with the Hameloth’s at the Washington Monument.
This is a view from the WWII memorial.
Just like the last time we were here, there were very old men being brought by their families or other organizations to see this tribute to their sacrifice.
Korean War Memorial
At last we worked our way over the Vietnam Memorial. It’s hard to express how emotional this was to see Nadia standing on Mike’s shoulders to take a rubbing of her grandpa’s name. It was a very different experience for Mike to come here now that we have children.
The wall was too hot for Nadia’s hands so Logan got on Steve’s shoulder to finish the rubbing.
Dani was such a trooper, but so tired after our very long day together. Steve was happy to hold her while she slept and we waited for the bus.
We had a wonderful time with the Hameloth’s, but the time went way to quickly!
