The last two weekends, we've taken Elizabeth out of the house to see what Maryland and DC have to offer.

At the Maritime Museum, she found a little house, with a little chair and some books. Thankfully, the three bears were out while she ransacked their home.

The river otters were a big hit, and they liked her, too.

Posing with some wooden sailors. No peg legs, fortunately.

On the way to the zoo, I looked back and saw she had found her sunglasses.

The cheetas were awesome...pacing along a fence that harbored a teasing zebra. Here she is with her daddy.

Lately, she has taken interest in making animal sounds, particularly those of tigers, so when she got to see them today, she squealed. And then roared. And believe it or not, the tiger faced us, crouched, and roared back at us (and it sounded like a roaring meow). She loved it.

We left the zoo after only a few hours because the 47 degrees and the powerful wind wore us down quickly. I can't wait to get back there in the spring. By then, she'll know more of the animals. She also might not "baaa" at the alpacas next time. Can you blame her? They've sort of have wool like a sheep. If it weren't for her, I might not have noticed.
