I got up at 5:30 to run around the monuments (thank you for the route recs!)
BREAKFAST was free (or uhh, included) at our hotel. I would place it solidly in the ‘okay’ range but kids loved the free access to whipped cream and chocolate syrup.
ZOO! After everyone had eaten / showered we headed to the zoo! It was cool weather (50s to start!) and somewhat crowded but not terrible.
Our favorite part was probably the small mammal house!
We had lunch with Lani of Real Life Style fame!!! She was dressed much better than I was, obviously. We ate at Duke’s Counter and it was delicious esp because it was after 2 and we had been walking all day. Annabel and I split a burger + kale salad and there were lots of pickled things.
And then my phone ran out of batteries! Oops. Therefore, I have no pix of:
- My parents coming to meet us!
- Kids hanging out / using up all remaining energy at a playground
- Delicious dinner at Elfegene DC, an Ethiopian restaurant recommended by one of you (it used to be Zenebach apparently which has been around for quite some time). 2/3 kids and all adults loved the cuisine and using the injera as an eating vehicle. G gave it a try and then ate chicken nuggets which they had on their menu for exactly this purpose.
We walked ~7 miles as a family according to my phone — pretty impressive for G especially!
About to run again and hoping my phone lasts the day today!!!
