An Annual Eggspectation

Another Easter nears, and another egg dyeing event with the Kohrs – a first after a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic (though there was plenty of egg-fueled fun outside last year). We upped the game with a volcano eggs, only adding to what is surely a few minutes of messy chaos!

Christmas Chaos

Once again, Christmas was the right amount of fun, magic and chaos!

A Happy Christmas Eve

This Christmas Eve had a little less Zoom and a little more family, but it was still relatively low-key given omicron. You wouldn’t know it by all the noise that four boys can make it one house though!

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!

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.

A Decade of Santa

It was our 10th trip to visit Santa at the Pentagon City Mall, and we truly enjoyed a relaxed visit – sharing hopes and wishes while catching up over the past year. The boys behaved, so Santa surely kept them on the “nice” list for now!

Thanksgiving 2021

We doubled our size since Thanksgiving 2020, hosting for the first time since 2018. It was a great meal, bookended with other Thanksgiving celebrations at school and with friends!

Holiday in Lights

We may very well plan to make Meadowlark Botanical Gardens’ Walk of Lights a holiday tradition after a second great visit! It was just cool enough to feel like winter, but not too busy so we could take in all the displays and tick all the boxes off in the scavenger hunt!
