We are troopers ….but the current temperatures are just brutal! I thought we would making a few events around the city this weekend ,but I just can’t risk our lives like that …hee hee SERIOUSLY!
To keep my little one busy during our Ultimate Camp In we will obviously be building a fort ( so neccessary), maybe mommy can control the remote a bit and introduce her to some of my fave movies as a kid.
Pinterest is definitely a major inspiration with countless activities to keep your child busy.
*Using just painters tape & recycled paper you can create a indoor web allowing your child to “trap” things (recycled paper balls). This is a wonderful opportunity to read a book or introduce other learning tools about Spiders.
*Snow painting indoors: Get a large shallow container, fill it with snow , allow your little artist to express themselves with their favorite colors and tools
*Make your own bean bag toss with a cardboard box
*Mani/Pedi ….. You and your mini can even enjoy a simple at home face mask. Most recipes include just a few ingredients from your kitchen.
Ahhhh I Love these faces!
A reap of our weekend….
There are tons of sports games going on and last week we enjoyed a basketball game at Georgetown University! That night was freezing out but Liv had a blast cheering the ladies on! Girl Power indeed!
Next up the Baltimore Aquarium had a “Pay What You Want Day” which we obviously had to attend! The savings were well worth the crowded visit! After enjoying the aquarium we tried a new restaurant right next door called “Family Meal” located at 621 East Pratt Street. Literally this place was like a visit with your cool accommodating friends that don’t have kids, but open up their home to your family as if they do lol. The restaurant is really nice perfect for family or a cute date! Our favorite was the pot pie fritters we enjoyed ,definitely worth shouting about! Everyone who works there is kind and knowledgeable which is obviously coming from the top of there leadership. If your into (which I am) a good drink or locally grown items they have you covered! The cherry on the top that led us there was that they offered a “pay what you want” meal option on the menu coinciding with the aquarium event.
We hung out with the coolest sister/ aunt ever.
Liv was a real party animal and got the face paint to show for it!
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!
