We Love …Fall Fun

After our late night at the Zoo I did not have the energy for our day at Mt.Vernon per my plan ,but luckily The Sports & Learning Complex had a fall event going on.
Crafts, snacks, bouncy house, train rides and crafts welcomed us.
Unfortunately, a few of the promoted activities were not there like the petting zoo and live performers…..booo

Boo at the Zoo

Our Halloween fun started Friday at 5pm!
The weather was so shockingly cold (I’m in denial that summer is over and coats are now needed)
So I had to use a alternate costume for Liv! Since she was bundled for the elements she strapped her wings over her coat and was a “Fairy”! The DC Zoo is hands down one of our fave places to visit and we do so routinely. So with the addition of some Halloween fun we were really excited for Boo at the Zoo! While we may have revised our costumes, plenty of families came out in full costume! Some of the most impressive and entertaining were the child Ipad as well as the elaborate family costumes like the Wizard of Oz! The unique costumes added to the excitement of the event!

The DC Zoo showcased animal encounters, educational booths, haunted petting zoo which is always fun and loads of treats!

The carousel ride with her aunt was definitely a highlight for Liv!
We had a blast and plan to incorporate this event into our fall traditions! This event was ticketed ,so be sure to plan ahead as this event is very popular.

Trick or Treat!

We Love Artisphere

We have been so busy lately that I’ve been putting off the Silver Clouds Exhibit at the Artisphere. I’m really happy that we made it!

Humongous body pillow style shiny silver “Clouds” flew around the room as my precious princess pushed and pulled them all about! Twirling her Saturday away!
Another cool site was the live chalk art and comic strip coloring area.
Liv was feeling so artistic the entire display area had to have been all of her work!

Good Times!
How did you spend your weekend?

Pumpkin Patch 2013

My little family really enjoys the holidays!
Sharing all the fun family traditions with your little makes everything even more special!
Most pumpkin patches are not open during the week to families which is pretty inconvenient … So discovering Queen Anne Farm so close to home and convientely open weekday hours was a blessing!

We love farms in general, the fresh food , novelty items, live stock and overall experience *sigh* these truly are the best moments.
Farm time is one of the rare times my family gets to disconnect from technology and just engulf ourselves in nature. We make an effort to appreciate these times as often as we can. Liv loaded into the little red wagon they had available and gazed at the chickens and other farm animals present, squealing and imitating their sounds. The bulk of our time was spent finding the best pumpkins of course. And yes pumpkinS because baby girl needed a big pumpkin and a tiny one as well. I swear she touched every pumpkin on the field 🙂
When she was satisfied with her selections. She also picked a sunflower to take home! We stopped in the little shop area for the neccessities yummy cider and pumpkin decorating kits!
