Last month I introduced Liv to The Gabby Douglass Story , and she has since watched it a record breaking amount of times. Literally backtoback and totally engaged… To the point the story as well as the lines can easily be recalled. I’m happy I found such a awesome story on Netflix of a amazingly hardworking and strong young girl! Gabby’s work ethic in the gym as well as her mothers sacrifice for her children are heartwarming and motivating. (There are some pretty good songs in the movie as well!) Now when Liv goes to gymnastics she is even more enthusiastic about pushing herself to get closer to the achievements of her role model Gabriel Douglass.
Below are a few places we went last week.
This weekend was perfect to visit the Zoo!
It was warm enough for me to just wear my denim jacket and momma was thrilled! With this crazy cold weather we had not been since Zoolights and we are usually at the Zoo weekly! The carousel and train are always necessary on our visits.
Chuck E Cheese …. We have such a system at this place. Coupon for the token motherload, Pizza and juice box for her, beer for mommy, of course we bring our official Chuck E Cheese tote for all of our tickets and while we are currently saving for a BIG prize Princess Liv always gets cotton candy to go.
Sports and Learning Center open gymnastics is perfect for drop in fun during the daytime. Little ones and parents ( adults be prepared to wear flexible clothing) get a great workout. The trampoline, massive foam pit, balancing beams, walls to climb, monkey bars and tons of mats to perfect those flips. After we always enjoy a snack that I pack or purchase something from the cafe.
Bowie Branch Library! We love books and this new library is so welcoming to do just that. The small readers area is so bright and spacious filled with little toys mounted along the walls. The large faux tree in the kids area is so great to read under and stimulate little imaginations. I was really pleased. This library is perfect for a little reading play date. This location also offers the option to check out iPads! How 2014!
