Back to the sprayground

16 Jul

Since Miss H has completely stopped napping these days, we try to fill the weekends with as much activity as possible so she sleeps for a solid 12 hours over night. The activity wears us all out!

The sprayground is perfect for burning off a lot of energy. Today, she made friends with everyone there and the whole group moved to the playground equipment because the water was pretty chilly.

They were making ‘mulch ice cream,’ and selling it to anyone who passed by. Miss H was nice enough to let you try it first. Yummy, dirt and wood chips.

And, buckets make great hats.

The Rest of the Long Weekend

4 Jul

Happy 4th of July!

I feel like we have had a mini-staycation the last few days. We went to Baltimore, spent time at the pool and the sprayground, watched the planes land at Gravelly Point, saw Transformers 3, did some shopping in the middle of what would have been a work day, went to Annapolis, sat at the pool some more, made several trips to the park and stopped by Dairy Queen. No fireworks for this house this year. Next year we will add fireworks.

Miss H loved the sprayground last year and we kept forgetting to take her this year. I think she loved it even more this year. Now, every time we leave the house she wants to go to the ‘spray water park.’

Miss H was thrilled by the ‘BIG planes’ as they landed at National Airport. We thought the noise would bother her but she just cheered for them and wanted more to come.

We even got a tourist to take our picture. Excuse the sweat.

Besides the sprayground, I think the next highlight for Miss H was the boat ride we took around Annapolis. She loved waving to the people on other boats and I think she spent the majority of the cruise looking over the side. I have the pictures to prove it.

And, then the waving while looking over the side.

It was a great day to be out on the water!

We are completely worn out from all the activity. Hope everyone had a great weekend and a great 4th!
