It's been a crazy, hectic week for me. With my daughter's school year ending next week, there have been field trips, rehearsals, concerts, girl scout meetings, and numerous project this week. The best thing was going to the National Zoo in DC with my daughter's class. I was most excited to see the new panda cub, but as you can see in the picture, she was hiding in a tree the whole time we were near her enclosure. At least I got to see the otters, my other favorites.

What about you guys? What's your favorite thing to see at the zoo? Or the best part of your week?

If you don't want to talk about this, feel free to talk about anything!

And Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all have great weekends!
