Weekend Cool

Sunday we started our day with Disney on Ice! Honestly, I felt like this performance was just ok…. ” 100 Years of Magic” wasn’t that magical to me. Mulan and Lion King were definitely highlights. However, my issues were where the hell was Princess Tiana? and Why is there always violence ie. the stabbing of the Beast.

After, we headed to The National Portrait Gallery which is probably my favorite museum in DC. They are currently running an ” American Cool ” exhibit highlighting influential tastemakers, artist, athletes, rebels, and charismatic souls. From the 1940s until present those we have chosen to lead the cool brigade in this country were all represented

Unfortunately with the crowd I wasn’t able to get any good shots.
The complimentary warm tea and hot coco for kiddies was a yummy treat.
Taking Liv to museums is such a joy to teach her and highlight aspects of art that are relatable to her. Hearing her interpretation of things she sees is just wonderful.

Have I mentioned that I’m tired of wearing a coat and that this winter wonderland we are in is starting to get pretty outrageous?! Well the Botanical Gardens gave us a mini escape from the elements and it gave us a indoor / outdoor vibe that we all appreciated!

This past weekend my Princess & I attend the DC Screening of Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2! The movie was very cute however, one of thee most exciting parts of the film is that the major corporation mention repeatedly was named…. *wait for it….* Liv Corp 🙂
So on that point alone I must say this one is Liv and Mommy approved! Go check it out when it hits theaters this weekend!

We Love… Citrus Lane

Who doesn’t love the joy of some good mail. Liv and I literally squeal and anticipate our little gifts in the mail. Recently liv received her first Citrus Lane package! 

Citrus Lane is an exciting way for parents to try out amazing new products. Based on your profile data entered you will be sent items appropriate for your child’s sex and age group! I am always interested in fun, yummy or natural goods so between conversation and research those are my typical ways of discovering new things. With this unique service they bring the best things right to your mailbox. Each month is a new surprise and we can’t wait for our next package.

Please Touch Museum

I (parents lets be honest) had my heart set on The Please Touch Museum for some time and I’m so pleased that Liv and I got to visit this summer! Literally this is thee most interactive and exciting children’s I am aware of thus far. This museum is just a short road trip away from DC located in Philadelphia. Perfect little day trip with your toddler. A few of the elements include
Water play with wonderful smocks available to protect from the inevitable splashes, Alice in wonderland play zone, musical parade, grocery store, mail truck, doctors office (all of which have tons of little toy sized pieces to enhance the experience) the doctors office has exam tables.

Words can’t do this place justice! It’s magical! Set in a very a humongous building that would otherwise house something much more serious… this children’s museum is a joy. The carousel inside is a must ride and of course we loaded up in the gift shop because no trip is complete without a little gift.
