Lions and tigers and Max-oh my!

Max went to the National Zoo in Washington DC on Saturday.  Our first stop was the "Great Cats" exhibit, where Max correctly identified lions and tigers as cats.  At the "Elephant Outpost", Max admired an elephant snacking on grass, but preferred "The Science of Poop" exhibit, where he got to touch [replica] elephant excrement.  He also loved the "Bird House" where he got up-close and personal with a stork (or crane) that he may have recognized as the creature who dropped him off at our house 17 months ago.  He squealed with such excitement as the birds swam by that I did a double-take to make sure Sadie wasn't in the water.  Max enjoyed the zoo, but in true toddler form, he eventually morphed into a bit of an animal himself and went home for a cat nap.
