Right after Dave left, Denise (au pair #3) came to visit us for a few days. Ah, Denise! It was so nice to see her. We went to the zoo, a yoga class, got our nails done and a few lunches. What would I do without the kind, caring people who take care of Edda? I would stress out a lot more. I enjoy being a stand-in mom to these girls. Denise is starting the process of getting a motorcycle licence. I told Denise sternly to not get a motorcycle. It’s the motherly thing to do. I think she might have listened. Maybe not, I can only try.
A few photos from the zoo. Memorial Day at the National Zoo. It was hot. The parking lot was full and cars were being directed away – but with Edda we managed a spot right near the front entrance.
Running through the cooling sprinklers.
Hello prairie dog!
Jeremy and Edda watching the sea lion (?) otter (?) walrus (?) manatee (?). I dunno. Oh! And we did see the baby panda. He was a small bundle of fur high up in a tree.
