Day at the Zoo

We went out with the mommy's group for a fun day at the Reston Zoo. It was my daughters first time at the Zoo and she had me laughing.

Well we can say she is not scared of the animals like her brother is. She feed them all and even tried to pet the buffalo when it came up to us on the tractor ride. 19 months and not fears.

Water Taxi family fun

We took the kids on a Water Taxi from Virginia to Maryland on the Potomac River to visit National Harbor. They had a blast. Thanks to a friend of our's Go Kid Yourself that told us about this.

We had a blast, took the water taxi, got to see different boats, airplanes flying over to land at Reagan Airport, couple helicopters, play in the sand at the National Harbor, and then we stopped for cupcakes(kids loved that).

If you are in the area of DC this is a fun thing to do with the kids.

My favorite part......J took the shovel and said mom look I am brushing his teeth. The things a 3 yr old says.

Bucket and a rope

Make your own pully using a bucket and rope. Great to get kids moving and using their eye/hand coordination, along with fine motor skills .

Got one of his buckets, rope and the parachute bunny and we went up to hill in our front yard. He had a blast. Jake filled the bucket up with blocks and rocks and little toys and would pull it up and down on the top of the hill.

Rope and bucket

Up the bucket goes

Look I got it mom
