WeLove Play

Let me start by beaming about how the thrill of living in DC proper is a long awaited joy! Establishing goals that serve your family and cutting down on our commuting time is a wonderful feeling! This past Saturday we spent the majority of our early day on the playground! Kaboom & Playworks DC Hosted a wonderful day of play for the entire family! We have experienced so much rain lately that we were eager to get out and play with Mr. Golden Sun!


We value outdoor freedom, physical activity and children’s imagination. The fact that the new trend is to decrease/ eliminate recess for children is literally deplorable. #Rally4Recess had petitions on hand as well as a day of fun and healthy food for everyone. Sidewalk chalk, classic group games, and balls of all types was a nostalgic Saturday for me as a parent. 

Of course while at play everyone works up quite the appetite and Honest juice and DC Central Kitchen was on hand to feul us with wraps and fresh fruit. The bounty of apples and pears also kept us going. 


Sometimes we go for a over scheduled weekend with more running around then is necessary and this weekend we kept it classic with a day of outdoor recess. We had a blast!

Prior to Liv I was living vegan until my second trimester of pregnancy. The past few months the removal of all dead things from our diet has been happening and baby girl is enjoying our new meat substitutes! Liv has been requesting tacos and after hunting down a meat free, soy free, gluten free option I believe we have a winner!  

 

I was so excited when I found this brand in Wegmans that I couldn’t stop rereading the package! Liv approves! Faux meat always has a lighter texture then actual animal flesh but this brand was absolutely heavier then Morningstar which I have used in the past and at the time absolutely included soy in their ingredients. So if you are looking for a healthier way to make your tacos I definitely recommend this swap out! Enjoy and let me know how this product goes over with your littles.
