On Friday we joined our friends Lisa and Andy at the Smithsonian National Zoo for its annual Boo at the Zoo. This was our first time ever going and it was a great time! Despite the crowds (they let Sunday night people in on Friday because of the impending hurricane Sandy), the kids behaved so well and loved every minute of it.
|We picked up famous 2 Amy's pizza to go and ate at the zoo with our friends. Andy said only SEC fans would tailgate at the zoo-ha! This was a GREAT idea, though, and we were able to get a yummy dinner and walk right into the zoo.|

|Ha! Harper freaked out at a woman dressed as a gorilla. Here she is a little timid still.|
|Sweet Kate was so good in the wagon.|

Harper was wired the whole way home and Kate passed out immediately. This was a really fun event and I just love all of the wonderful things the girls get to do in this area at this time in their lives.
