The weather has been absolutely amazing the past few days, sunny and in the high 70s/low 80s with little humidity. Very unlike Washington, DC in August.
So, to make the most of it, we’ve spent much of our time outside at area parks. On Thursday alone we went to three different playgrounds! Yesterday we met a friend and his toddler at Burke Lake Park, which we hadn’t visited since the fall.
Before we headed out the door, Audrey helped Kenji make sandwiches for our picnic lunch. (She’s way more interested in making sandwiches than actually eating them.)
Once we arrived at the park, we headed straight for the miniature train.
It was quite busy, so we had to wait for the next go-round. But that landed us right at the front of the line — and the front of the train!
After the train ride, we headed over to the carousel. Audrey went straight for the little flying elephant (?).
A break for lunch (really, a snack — mostly popcorn and fruit for Audrey), and then she was busy climbing and sliding at the playground.
As we left the park, I realized we never even went close to the lake this time!
