Capturing the Moments

The theme for this week’s You Capture series is “A Moment“. Spring has started to spring around here and I haven’t captured as many moments as I’d like because I’ve been living in an allergy-induced fog.  Today, however, I dragged myself outside and watched my oldest and youngest have some bouncy fun.  It was...

Swimming Pools: Cheap Fun with Kids!

Saturday March 13, 2010

We’re working hard to trim our budget, so we aren’t as footloose and fancy free as we used to be when it came to spending money on  fun kid activities. We recently discovered Arlington county pools have “free swim” for kids on Saturdays.  Meaning, you arrive between 1 and 3pm, pay for the adult(s)...

Shapes

This week’s You Capture theme is “Shapes“.  Here’s a few examples from around the house this week: We made pretzels yesterday, following Sweet Pea’s recipe. Moments ago, I wondered what could be keeping Adam so suspiciously quiet.  Apparently, he likes rectangles.  And greenbacks. Lastly, a look at some circles that can always...

WFMW:  Decreasing Toy Noise

We have one of those fridge farm magnetic sets.  When the kid puts the two pieces of the animal into the set and it sings a little song.   Or if they just push a button it plays a little ditty.  Cute, but annoying.  Especially when the toddler likes to press the button over and...

Snowmageddon 2010

Well the blizzard has arrived, delivered on it’s promise, and hasn’t left yet.  The media is freaking out about it, but we are enjoying the novelty, for now.  (Ask me how I feel to be snowed in on Monday). Yesterday, school was canceled pre-emptively, so Wendy was invited to a friend’s house...

Of Sledding and Snow Shakes

Sunday was a beautiful morning, with perfect conditions for sledding. Sunny, not too windy, and not so much snow that we couldn’t drive our minivan to the nearest bestest hill in our neighborhood. It took some effort to get all of the children into their snow gear and out the door, but finally, we...

Here we snow again

Another snowfall has hit our area, so we are hunkered down in front of the fire. Some of us are playing “Trouble”… some of us are causing it … and some of us are blogging about it 🙂 We’ve been working on some Valentine’s decorations, so I thought I would try and be arty...

Ringing in the New Year with a Fizz, Stomp and a Bang

Our New Years was completely boring.  We did not take our usual trip to the little cabin in the big woods and we did not make any plans at home. Mike bought some sparkling cider for the kids and we let them have some in celebration, around 9pm. Then he and...

More snowy fun

We are dug out and getting around, but it is still pretty snowy around here.  On day two of the big storm (Sunday), there was nary a plow in sight.  Lucky for us, one of our neighbors motored by in his bobcat and helped to dig us out. He made a huge...

Snow Much Fun

Unless you live under a rock, you probably heard the East Coast got a whopper of a snow storm.  Our area got up to 24″;  I estimate our house got closer to 15-17″ but it sure felt like more.   This is how we spent our snowy day. By 11am, we had 8″...
