For the first time in my life I've seen a river almost completely iced over. It's eerie and beautiful at the same time. I find the cold bracing but the winds unbearable. AND I actually went on a Moms Night Out! The company was much better than the food for sure.

We've attended at least one National Symphony Orchestra "In Your Neighborhood" concert every year. In 2018 a friend and I attended the opening night concert at the Hamilton. I've had meals there several times (the menu is varied enough that I refer to it as an upscale Cheesecake Factory) but had never been to the downstairs concert area before. The two string quartets played the modern classical, including covers of "Kiss from a Rose" and "Take On Me." (Surprisingly sublime when performed with four basses.)



The hostess of the family concert dressed up as a one-person percussion section.


The virtual skateboard at the National Museum of the American Indian's imagiNations activity center was a balancing challenge.


Z was thrilled with his Moroccan soccer team warm-up suit.


Z helped install casters on the coffee table so he could have more room to play.


At school the health theme meant pretending to be an optometrist.


We tried drawing a panda, with mixed success.
