Christmas at the National Zoo- Washington, D.C.

We took advantage of the unseasonably warm weather and decided to enjoy an evening stroll through the holiday light show at the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. An annual tradition in the Washington area, the zoo opens its doors free of charge from 5pm-9pm during the holiday season, to provide family friendly holiday cheer.

I have a soft spot for elephants. These three, who were posing by the entrance made me smile.

This guy was illuminated in 3-D.

There were animals and sea creatures alight around every bend.

Ohm enjoyed the lights. He even attempted to sing along with the Christmas carols.

His favorite part was the old fashioned carousel. I think we rode a giant sloth?

The Small Mammal Hall and the Reptile Hall were open for viewing. I enjoyed the curious faces of the tamarins. We also got to see an armadillo roll into a ball. So what does this have to do with the birds in lights in this picture? Nothing. Just wanted to share.

Happy Holidays!
