The weather is unbelievably gorgeous this weekend, so we decided to spend Monday morning at the zoo with our friends Marnie and Gary. Although it was busy, there weren’t nearly as many people as we thought there would be; perhaps everyone decided to go to the Folklife Festival instead, which we did yesterday afternoon.
Here are some photos from the day. We wore Ellie out – she fell asleep in the short car ride home.

Ellie on the Carousel (she really enjoyed it)
After the Carousel, Part 1 (she was not happy she had to get off)
After the Carousel, Part 2 (some running in the field next to the carousel cheered her right up)
And here’s a photo of Ellie last night at Folklife. We sat on the grass with our neighbors Heidi, Bert, and Logan, along with their friend Cheryl, and listened to Brazilian drummers. Ellie dug it, frequently getting up to dance (stomp her feet). The french fries were pretty good, too:
