One of the weekends we decided to play tourists and check out the monuments in DC. If you ever travel to the capital, you absolutely must do this :). My cousin came up with the great idea of putting everyone in their Redskins' shirts and take lots of fun shots with the monument while representing our team. Football season is a month away, but of course that is a great idea.
We started with the White House
We've also been living and loving water this Summer. We bought passes to a local splash park a mere 6 minutes away from home so I make it a point to take the boys as much as I can. Luckily for me my cousin also loves water play and hanging out with the boys.
Her parents have an awesome pool in their backyard so pool party it was. It was a beautiful sunny day and the boys loved every minute of it.
Check out the boys in the pool
This past weekend we celebrated Tman and Jbird turning 5 and 3 with an awesome birthday party (that deserve a post of its own). After the party, we checked out a nearby drive-in theater. You guys, that was quite an experience. We wanted to take the boys to a movie with us and hubby had never been to one. It was such an awesome experience and a great way to watch a movie with all the kids in tow. I didn't take any pictures of that adventure but it was definitely worth the trip
On Sunday we went back to the splash park, trying to make the most of that membership. My mom came with us since we had 4 kids between my cousin and I. The splash park is always a guaranteed fun time.
Our crew at the splash park, my nephew Ian is hilarious
Because my nephew Ian asked to match with the boys the last time we were hanging out, I got him his own Redskins shirt. He was ecstatic. When I asked he how he liked matching with his cousins, his response was "I don't like it, I love it" with the biggest grin. It's the little things in life
