A Chilly Egg Hunt

It has been nearly a decade, but we were back at Leesburg Animal Park, not for fall fun but rather spring adventures with some animal encounters and an egg hunt. It was a super chilly day, but we braved the cold for the glory of little plastic toys and some first encounters with a pony!

Spider-Man, Spider-Man!

We had such a great experience with our own movie theater last year, that we decided to do it again with some Spider-Man! Seeing it with cousins made it all the more fun, and the action-packed movie was amazing on the big screen.

More Winter Staycation Fun

We stayed close to home President’s Day Weekend, hopeful that next year we’ll return to Great Wolf Lodge again!

Family Fun Weekend

We broke up the typical weekend with extended family fun – and got to experience some activities we haven’t done in forever, including Disney on Ice and bowling!

A Winter Staycation

We pivoted to stay close to home for MLK Jr. Weekend and lived it up near Eastern Market! We had the best foods from the area, explored the market and relaxed like any other chill weekend at home.

An Enchanted Evening

It had been a few months since we visited Nationals Park and boy did it look different! Nats Park was nearly unrecognizable as it transformed for Enchant, a holiday-themed evening festival with lights, ice skating and – of course – plenty of opportunities to spend money!

Tapping into Art

We hit the Vincent Van Gogh immersive art experience over the holidays and learned a lot about the famous Dutch artist. While there weren’t any original works of art on display, we got to enjoy all the shapes and colors in larger-than-life displays and a virtual reality journey. Eight thumbs up!

Firepits, S’mores Cake and Mulled Wine

Winery visits have become a new pandemic outdoor activity when the temperature drops, and Bluemont doesn’t disappoint! We enjoyed the fire pit, though with all the sun, it wasn’t as cold as we thought. And the views were top notch.

Embracing Winter Fun

We were looking for some wintry holiday fun to make up for no Zoolights this year, and we found it in Georgetown! We braved the ice rink to go skating, and emerged better skaters after a session at Washington Harbour.
