A day early

We celebrated Davin's 1st birthday as a family a day early because Mommy is going to Maine tomorrow and we'll celebrate at daycare on Davin's actual birthday.  We all got to go downtown and play at the building museum.






My favorite part (and I think Davin's too) was a picnic lunch at a fountain in the sculpture garden!!  We LOVE playing in the water, especially on such a gorgeous day!


 I'm practicing my modeling poses.


Then, at my request (for Davin of course), we went to the animal museum (Natural History Museum).  Davin liked the giraffe.

 He liked this "doggie" too.  He wouldn't believe me that it was a porcupine... he just kept saying 'doggie'.  He's a little slow. 

And then after both of us took naps on the way home, Mommy snuck out of the car to buy us birthday cupcakes.  


Davin kept trying to grab the candle rather than blowing it out.  I had to help him... see comment above.


He sure was fast at making a mess though!!


He decided Daddy should eat it instead of him.


I ate my pink cupcake without making a mess.


After everyone else had one, he finally decided to try the cupcake.  I think he liked it.


Finally, before bed and then end of a long and super fun birthday, Davin played with his presents that had arrived on time - like this fire truck.  It super cute cuz he tries to make car and siren noises when he plays with his toys!  What a big boy!

Evening walks

Every night we go for a walk before bedtime.  One of my favorite places to go is to the kitty house.  There are 9 kitties - only 3 are nice though.  

We also like to look and pet the flowers.  Lamb's ear is SOOOO SOOOOOFT!


And today I got a good roll down the hill in someone's front yard.


We often bump into friends to play with as well... then it can turn into a LONG walk. I love long walks!!

Official toddler

video
Davin started taking his first steps a couple of days after he turned 11 months old - I of course was doing that by 10 months old.  Now he's really starting to toddle everywhere.  Soon we'll be able to play chase!

Bethesda Imaginarium

I love DC.  There are always tons of family friendly events and place to go, usually for free!  Today we went to Imaginarium Bethesda.
I got my face painted with a unicorn.  I made a musical instrument and a clay cupcake (vanilla & chocolate).  We shook our booties to live music and then made our own 'music'.



The fun was finished off with some yummy tapas at one of our favorite local restuarants - Jaleo.  Yum yum.

Cool down

It was HOT this past week - breaking records.  We've spent nearly every day at the pool and/or in the sprinkler to cool down. Davin loves playing water nearly as much as I do.
