DC outdoors is so good!
It’s so amazing to live in a area that provides such a diverse entertainment scene. From the free museums , to swanky little restaurants to the ah- mazing outdoors DC does not lack “things to do”. Fletcher’s Cove is such a wonderful experience in Georgetown.
Fishing, canoeing and the beautiful opportunity to connect with what matters can all be experienced in this beautiful space.
C&O Canal has quite an interesting history so you just may learn something by taking a visit to this space.
Where does your family go to enjoy the outdoors?
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!
Rituals. Malcolm X Park. 2-9pm
Of all the pics and videos I captured nothing can fully convey the supreme goodness that happens during the Drum Circle in Malcolm X Park every warm Sunday from 2-9. God is present. Love is thriving. People are united. If not visible anywhere else in this world the pure goodness of human life is present at this time. Be sure not to deprive yourself of these moments.
The National Building Museum tucked between the National Mall and Gallery Place is a fun place for kids to get their energy out! Liv loves all the open space to run, the Building Zone full of dress up and toys to “construct” as well as a favorite being the humongous blue blocks that she could spend all day imagining and reimagining what to build.
If there already wasn’t plenty of fun at The National Building Museum…. Get your flops and towels ready because July 4 – September 7 they are bringing the Beach inside!!! How exciting!
Cooking with your children is so wonderful! Allowing children to get hands on experience with their food is so valuable. With all the colors, quantities as well as textures and terminologies your child can take great lessons away with each recipie! Never underestimate the value of real life experience at any age. Bake it Fun provided me a baking sheet in exchange for my honest review and I was thrilled to try out the product.
I am so accustomed to traditional metal pans that pile high in my kitchen the intrigue for this baking mat that rolled up easily was high. Our cooking process was much of the same. Normally I just kinda toss the metal pans in the half way open oven , but with the nature of this mat I did have to actually open the oven and place the mat on the shelf. However, the cleaning was sooooo easy! No Brillo and elbow grease needed! And being able to bend and store the mat makes it all so dreamy! As a busy mom I need all my tools to be as simple and stress free as possible. I will continue to reach for my “Bake it Fun” baking mat first before any of my old metal ones in the future.
