A few more pictures from this week. Alex is getting tall enough to reach the keyboard on the desk. We also went out to eat this week and Alex discovered the fine art of dipping his french fries in ketchup.

September 2nd. Met Aunt Shana for lunch in Woodley Park, then we went to the National Zoo. Alex saw cheetahs, a scimitar-horned oryx, a maned wolf, a red panda, the Giant Pandas (one was eating bamboo, one was sleeping on his back), elephants, a hippo, a capybara (which are the largest of all rodents), apes, a Komodo dragon, and a orangutan. Alex really enjoyed going through the water misters the Zoo has.

Saturday Sept 1st. A really nice day, we went for a walk, then to the Cahoon's for a cookout and some crabs. Alex liked the glow stick bracelets Rose had for the children.
