*summer bucket list - maybe a little ambitious?
*disrupting Filipina women
I attended a reception at the Philippine Embassy to meet some of the ladies from DISRUPT Filipina Women's book launch. Supporting my Pinay sisters!
*Aspiring Mormon Women
And then supporting my Mo sisters by going to the AMW's first DC event.
*music together with Miss Amy
Baby Z loved Miss Amy and I think we'll go back.
*Rock Creek Park nature center and horse center on a rainy day
*fun at church
*black berry picking at the community garden
*cardboard airport on a Sunday afternoon
*SCOTUS photo kerfuffle
I think the CBS affiliate in Salt Lake did it best though it was hard to turn down an interview request from NPR.
*culture day at the daycare
*mini-golf failure at Haines Point (due to flooding) and the Smithsonian Folklife Festival featuring Peru
*C & Y's annual ice cream soda float party
Lovely to see everyone and we sheltered under a tree from the rain.
*"the beach" at the National Building Museum
*fireworks next to the Washington Channel
We stayed local this time and it was worth it - a short walk, no crowds, and a beautiful view.
*Harlem Gospel Choir at the Howard Theater - a great way to spend a Sunday
*halfway through Ramadrama
I have to say I'm quite impressed with all the things you do with Baby Z. I've plenty of friends with kids, and they don't do nearly half the stuff you do with him. I love that y'all are so into giving him experiences rather than just an iPad to distract him like my friends do with their kids. It reminds me a lot of how I grew up, and I think a lot of kids today are missing out on that kind of interactiveness with their parents.
I get that all the time! Partly it's because there's so much fun stuff to do in DC, and partly because I didn't have these opportunities as a kid myself (i.e. an hour to drive to the zoo). The funny thing is that Z actually gets a lot of unstructured time. We try to limit activities to the morning on Saturdays, and we rarely do anything on Sundays (since church = 3 hours of playgroup). When he comes home from daycare he can do whatever he likes at home.
