Since Washington DC celebrated the Centennial celebration of the gift of the cherry blossom trees, they had LOTS of things with sakura blossoms on them - which thrilled me! Unfortunately the zoo visit itself was quite short lived, it was HOTTER than hot, and I swear every school from around the globe (maybe not THAT many but close!) was there on school field trips - we did manage to see some animals, zebras and the pandas, but mostly just walked around, ate lunch then headed across the street for some frozen yogurt before making the trek back to the Metro station and "home".

|Loved all of the hydrangeas all over|
|I spotted this cute bear statue outside the Marriott|
Sakura was trying to give him a hug!
