On Tuesday before we left to go catch our plane, we wanted to run up to the National Zoo. The Cheeta cubs were recently born, so it was really cute seeing them out there running around. It was so humid because of the recent rain, we didn't want to spend a whole lot of time there, so we headed back to our hotel to pack and get ready to leave.

Our flight home was very long! We arrived at the aiport a couple of hours before we were scheduled to leave. When we got there, we found out our flight was an hour delayed, which meant that we would be missing our connecting flight back to Salt Lake. So they were able to transfer us to another airline where we would fly to Denver and then connect to Salt Lake. But because we switched our flight, we all had to get strip searched, which was a little interesting! Because of weather though, we sat on the plane for 2 hours waiting to depart. Luckly, we were able to watch TV and movies. We finally got into Denver, but we had missed our connecting flight because of the delay, so we were able to get on another flight that was leaving to Salt Lake. Again, we found ourself sitting on the plane waiting to depart. They said that the plane was 300lbs too heavy, and they were working on lighting the load. An hour later we were finally able to go. It was a long day!
