We conquered another Santa visit, and like last year, O was not the biggest fan. We had a long wait as the staff didn’t show up until 50 minutes AFTER the booth opened and had technical difficulties. But the boys were a trooper and got to bond a bit more with Santa than in years…
Some weekends are more packed than others. With fall in full swing, we were ambitious one weekend to fit in a local fair, a campfire about “bats and blood suckers” and Disney on Ice. Here are the highlights!
After a successful trip last year, we tried for a repeat trip to the State Fair of Virginia. We lucked out with great weather once again for a food-and-fun-fest with our fellow VA residents.
We love our fall festivals, and probably none more so than Cox Farms. Since we know how popular this place can be, we enjoyed a fairly manageable crowd during its opening weekend. With cousins in tow, the boys managed to hit every attraction – some multiple times – to make for a fast-paced almost-fall day!
On a fateful rainy day, the Pohorylo cousins set out to explore the Udavar-Hazy center to take in all the planes and space vehicles they could handle. It was a big museum, but we managed to hit every corner, including the obligatory gift shop stop on the way out!
Another great year was had at the Arlington County Fair. It was only slightly cooler, but a lot more active, with four fully engaged boys on the rides, eating treats and getting all the free swag they could carry!
We had to welcome the Pohorylos to the DC area in style, and that meant sweating it out in the August heat at Nationals Park. It was multiple hours of fun and chaos, and we wouldn’t have wanted to enjoy it any other way!
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!
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.
