I have been wanting to visit the Giant Anteater at the Zoo since he was a baby on his mother's back. I missed those first months of his life, but at least I got to see him (Pablo) in person and not just through the National Zoo's e-newsletter updates. This awkward but adorable creature is a joy to see up close!

This botanical garden in Wheaton, Maryland is only a short drive away and, like many sights in D.C., these gardens are free and are lovely for a mid-summer amble.

so they were coming for me!
Hollywood East Cafe
While out in Wheaton, I went for dim sum with a friend. Though Hollywood East was not on my original list, I am adding it because this place is definitely worth the drive. The shrimp and chive dumplings were amazing, as were the baked custard dumplings for dessert. Double yum.
