On the High Seas

While we’ve covered our pirate themed adventures before, we have yet to capture time as pirates closer to home. It was our second trip on the Potomac, and even better as O was able to experience all the fun. Here are some of the highlights!

Staycation on the Water

Like last year, we enjoyed a quick trip to National Harbor for a change of scenery, some time in the pool and the infamous “silent disco” party. This year was much rainier than last, but that didn’t dampen our spirits as there was plenty to do indoors.

All Star Day

With the MLB All Star Game in town, we had to soak up some of the action. Since many of the free activities were outside in 90+-degree heat, we sucked it up and bought tickets to FanFest for some air-conditioned fun. And, it did not disappoint! There were balloon animals, face painting, skills practices and…

Like any good Father’s Day with small children, Brian got most of the day off to relax. He enjoyed a massage and got to try his hand at making chocolate truffles – which the rest of his family gladly sampled after his return home. Mix in some BBQ for good measure, and it was a…

A Wild Party

We were one with the animals for a birthday party at Roer’s Zoofari. We explored via bus and on foot and got to feed animals big and small. Here are some of the highlights!

Star Wars + Baseball!

When a Star Wars night coincides with baseball, this family needs to make a trip of it! It was worth the 45-minute ride to see the Bowie Baysox (an Orioles affiliate) take on the Portland Sea Dogs (a Red Sox affiliate), as right when we walked in, we were overtaken with tons of Star Wars…
