Another birthday year has rolled around...when do I actually start feeling like an adult?!
The weekend started early since Friday was a professional development day, so no school. We arranged a playdate for the morning and then in the afternoon went to the Open Studio at the National Portrait Gallery, with a stop at Shake Shack. Friday night we went to Kohls and PF Chang's for the first time. Life in the burbs!
Saturday was overcast and drizzly, but we still made it to the Blessing of the Animals at the Franciscan Monastery. Surprisingly there was a large media presence, including NPR and the local NBC affiliate, which posted a nice article afterwards.
The lizard was a big hit.
We decided to attend the opening of the new Lego store at the big mall.
On my actual birthday, I just slept and IT WAS AWESOME. Then we visited the drum circle in Malcolm X Park followed by dinner at a Filipino restaurant. And that it is how I started the next year in this mortal coil.
