First stop... Pandas!

I was overjoyed when finding out that Mei Xiang, one of the pandas at the National Zoo, was pregnant this summer!  Right before we moved, she gave birth to a baby boy, now named Bei Bei.  Since finding out we were coming to DC, I was excited for the pandas.  I could watch them for hours.

Our first adventure after getting settled into DC was to the National Zoo!  Although we can't get in to see the baby panda yet, I look forward to the day we can and I will be there waiting in line for sure!

These little kids started to annoy the silver back gorilla until he started banging on the cage on the opposite wall of the glass.

Moving in, DC style

We've now almost lived in DC for a month!  Our apartment is slowly coming together and we are starting to discover some good spots in the area.  It's a new experience for the both of us... being able to walk to the grocery store, restaurants, metro, and having unlimited access from the metro.  We can go days without driving.

Our apartment here is a little bit larger than our home in North Carolina so I feel like we have so much more space in the closet and kitchen!  I can actually take some things out of boxes and put them out to enjoy.

Enjoying this built-in desk!


Our view

My top 3 things about our place:
1.  Walk-in closet
2.  Balcony I can sit on with the pups without being eaten by bugs
3.  Large windows that let sun in all hours of the day
