Field Trip to the National Zoo

Noah recently went on his third preschool field trip. This time, the Polar Bears and Penguins classes went to the Smithsonian’s National Zoo. I got to tag along as a chaperone—very fun!

Noah’s favorite animal at the zoo was definitely the giant panda. In fact, we visited the panda house three times!

We saw lots of other big animals too, including elephants, zebras and bison.

The kids also saw a variety of birds, including ostriches, flamingos, kori bustards and ducks.

Tracking down all those animals was tiring! Here’s a photo of Noah and his buddies Max and Carter relaxing on a bench after their busy morning.

We stopped by the gift shop before we left. Noah got a panda stuffed animal that he named Sooki. Cool name, huh?

And of course, we can’t forget to mention the awesome ride on the school bus—the kids loved it!

This was Noah’s second trip to the National Zoo. Noah’s first zoo adventure was for his second birthday. We still haven’t seen all the animals and exhibits—there are a lot more critters to see—so we definitely plan to visit again soon. Stay tuned!
