Halloween in D.C.

Did you know that kids trick-or-treat in Washington, D.C., just like we do here?

Yeah, we weren't certain, but when Margaret and her traveling companion, Hannah, knocked on doors, strangers gave them candy ... just like they do every where else in the country. Awesome.

Mar and Hannah spend their Halloween in costume at the Zoo, on canal barge tour, trick-or-treating at the lovely boutiques in Georgetown (that was really fun) and doing some traditional trick-or-treating in our hotel's neighborhood — which was probably the most awesome neighborhood ever. All the houses were decorated and everybody was out enjoying the gorgeous fall weather.

Definitely a great place to celebrate Halloween.

In the elephant house of the National Zoo.

If you look very carefully, there's a giant panda at the back of that exhibit.

On the C&O Canal barge tour.

Despite Margaret's look of utter boredom, this was really an interesting and relaxing tour on a mule-drawn barge.

How fun!Love the pics in costume at the zoo, very surreal and what I would imagine is every kid's dream- Halloween costumes AND wild animals. Next time, can I go too and we can put costumes on and go to the National Gallery. Brilliant!

See you tonight,
