Brookside Gardens

We made the trek up to Wheaton, MD last week to visit the butterfly exhibit at Brookside Gardens. We had a great time, although it was HOT. The butterflies are in a green house conservatory, which seems to magnify the heat. However, it wasn’t as miserable as I remember it being the previous year...

This waterpark is out in Manassas (Manassas Park to be exact), but it is pretty good for the under 7 crowd. I went with some friends last Tuesday and we had a great time. Unfortunately, I failed to bring my camera, but a friend did get a cute group shot: That would be 10...

We went out to Great Country Farms this past Friday to do a little strawberry picking. The weather was overcast, but it was actually great. Only later in the day did it heat up to the sweltering temps we’ve been dealing with all weekend. The strawberries fresh out of the field were unbelievably delish....

Fun at the Sprayground

We are fortunate to live in a county with so many fun playgrounds. I love Hayes park because it has a cool water feature, but also nice climbing structures, a sandbox, swings, and a fair bit of shade. We had a great time there last week:

A few posts back, I showed Mike sleeping on the job. To keep things balanced, here’s another glimpse into Mike’s weekend duties. He loves to bike and the kids love to tag along for the ride.

Happy Belated Valentine’s Day!

We didn’t do much for the day – mostly just stayed in and played. I made cupcakes in the morning and the kids had fun helping me frost and decorate them in the afternoon. We made cards for daddy, but that was about it. Daddy also treated us right.� He gave me a new...
