the one where we forgot her shoes
I consider ourselves organized parents…which is why I couldn’t believe it when we forgot to bring Anna’s shoes this weekend when we went into DC. We were half way there when hubs asked, “We got everything right? Her shoes?” And I slapped the top of my forehead and went “Oh!” We didn’t want to waste time and turn back so we just made the best out of the situation. Luckily, our little walker didn’t mind being held almost the entire time.
We let her walk barefoot in front of the Capitol before heading inside to the U.S. Botanic Garden. I am sure Anna would have LOVED walking inside the garden because the plants and flowers were at her eye-level. Oh well, there is always next time. I think she still had fun pointing and screaming “flower” and “wawa” whenever she saw them, though.
It is a tradition of ours to get pho on the way back from DC and this Saturday was no exception. I like going there because Anna eats so well. She can slurp on those noodles all day long. And I don’t have to worry about lunch when we come back home. We just put her straight down for a nap and I get to nap too! It may be hot, but I enjoy our weekend trips.
