this past sunday i headed to the national zoo with my friend to check out the baby tiger cubs. i am not sure exactly why i love the zoo so much... but i do! whatever the reason i find myself there fairly often and i am really lucky to have a friend that likes the zoo (mainly the tigers!) as much as i do. i couldn't believe that i still had not seen the cubs so when my friend told me he was going i knew i couldn't pass it up! the cubs only come out for a few hours every morning so we made sure to get there early so that we were ready and waiting for them. it was so neat to see the cubs interact with one another - they are such beautiful and graceful creatures. i am already plotting my next trip to see them because i am pretty sure i could have stayed there all day long!
