No matter the weather my little humans like to stay busy! Baby boy is walking now so a climate controlled adventure space where the kids can climb and laugh as loud as their hearts desire is perfect when it's messy outside!
We played at Skillzone until the
kids (read: Mommy) got tired!
Where are you guys playing this summer?
When we get a date night we jump at this unicorn moment!!!
Living in the city makes the night so much more enjoyable! Quick Uber rights to our destination and endless options for fun!
We started date night at Toki Underground which is so hidden by the H st vibes that if your tastebuds are not leading the way you could easily miss the door to this tasty hideout. Before feasting on ramen we enjoyed the fried chicken steamed buns which are SO flavorful! I mean it’s fried chicken, with bread and sweet little pickles…. everything your hungry desires crave!
After dinner we spent the rest of our night experiencing the XYZT exhibit at ARTECHOUSE! I love art so much! We love art so much! If you enjoy being apart of art then you must experience this! XYZT brings out the childlike inquisitive nature in us all. It felt like a reset and a inspiration to have this experience in my memory bank. And of course experiencing art with someone you love only amplifies the potency of the experience!
Now that mommy and daddy have had this experience we are all set to return with the kids!
This blog started because this precious little soul chose me to mother her… flash to present day I have been chosen yet again to nurture my son along this journey as well. Being their mom is the greatest joy of my life and I have never been more committed to anyone. The love of my humans fuel my entire existence.
This past Sunday my crew set aside time and energy for Momma! We keep a very full schedule but Sunday we slowed all the way down and did my favorite thing…. eating at the beach…
They made Momma feel special this day and always I LOVE them
Last night Step Afrika “stepped” off the beginning of their tour throughout the wards! If you have yet to see this talented group this FREE tour around the city is the perfect opportunity to get familiar with their talent! And for those of you who have attended a Step Afrika performance prior I’m sure you’ve already made arrangements.
The energy at TheArc in Ward 8 last night was positively elevated, as people of all ages Sold Out the venue eagerly filling the theatre anticipating a good time. We enjoy theatre as a family, we enjoy movement and our connection to uplifting African American moments runs deep.
The show had a bit of education regarding the origins of stepping, tons of crowd participation, as well as live music just to highlight a few elements. SN: I was personally thrilled to see one of my Fellow Elon Alum shining so brightly throughout the performance. *Go Dionne Go!*
Here is the link to reserve your tickets for the tour and more info/ show offerings from Step Afrika
Princess Liv took sometime to read her brochure while experiencing an interactive exhibit at TheArc.
I’m so proud of you! Screaming so loud for you!
Cue: “This girl is on fire”
Words don’t exist to express the pride and joy Liv brings into our lives! She is strong and focused and with every new space in her life she owns it with such a confidence that fuels me to push beyond my own boundaries!
Olympic Figure Skater soon come!
Words can’t express the delight in watching your child blossom. Watching your child choose activities that suit them and the joy they have while learning and engaging in their interest areas. Any opportunity for my child to manifest her greatness we are there. Liv has been attending Artful Afternoons at the Smithsonian and she loves it!
Each session highlights the work of a preselected artist. The children create at multiple stations throughout the school, using a variety of materials that are relevant to the work of the artist while inspiring the young artist to manifest on their own. To replenish their strength the children conclude with a group snack time. So cute! So fun!
