hi friends! we got back from our short d.c. trip and had the most fabulous time. seriously, it is definitely the highlight of our mini travels for 2017.. let’s be honest. we basically hopped on the plane, got to baltimore pretty tired after a full week prior and sort of winged it. got some great suggestions to jump start my planning from friends.. and it was go go go for the 2.5 days we were there. here is a photo journal of our trip with some tips & reflections at the end! definitely looking forward to our next visit to d.c. and the rest of our mini jaunts lined up (hawaii, portland, santa barbara) over the next few months. happy traveling friends!

(there are closer airports so definitely check your options, but BWI worked for us in terms of timing, costs, and our plans) .. we were going to take the MARC into d.c. but ended up meeting up with my cousin who lives in baltimore for dinner first so we took the metro from the restaurant into d.c.

hi friends! we had a lovely easter weekend over here. friday, we spent the afternoon hanging out with friends at a local park.. the mamas put together a small egg hunt (thanks girls for organizing!) and little e had the most fabulous time! it was her first time participating and she got the concept quite quick! 😉 i found our large plastic eggs from target and filled them with organic gummies for the littles. another good idea was that some of the mamas filled them with stickers and tatoo art! i’ll need to brainstorm a bit for next year because little e went a little bonkers for the gummies… and we don’t really need to start a gummie craze over here in this house… a mama with an addiction to gummies is probably enough… let’s spare the toddler. haha.
