The DC trip was great! Uptown rehearsal was theraputic and I think we should sound pretty good on Saturday. (Come up to the Bethesda Theater to check us out if you're in the neighborhoo
Yesterday we got up really early and headed up north to the National Zoological Park (more official name). We got there about 7:30 and Randall was waiting. He took us over to the Panda House to meet Enika, the NZP PR person, and the panda keeper Nichole (sp?). She let Charlotte hold a little tuft of panda hair and we got set up in our safe and still VERY close-to-th
Tai Shan was born the same day as CJ but at 175lbs (did I get that right) and with really big teeth and claws, I don't think they would be able to share clothes.
After a little while, I think it was when the food ran out, Tai Shan decided he was done with us and headed back into his enclosure. It was pretty amazing to be hanging out so close to such a rare (and famous) animal.
Then we got cold and went to Starbucks until the animal houses opened up. Nothing like a Hazlenut Latte to shake off the chill.
There weren't many people there (being a cool, weekday morning) so we didn't have any problem getting into and around exhibits.
We headed out at around 11:00 feeling that we had had a pretty remarkable experience.
Wings Of Hope folks came by with a couple of horses for Charlotte to ride. She got on Wings (the little horse) by herself fir
Last night we had food delivered from Ruby Tuesdays. Thanks to Kim Chestnut and the Richmond Moms for coordinatin
To close out the evening, Rachel chose the movie for the evening and out came "Matilda." CJ watched the whole thing and seemed to like it. We decided, Matilda is CJ especially in that she LOVES books.
Off to find The Wind In The Willows!
