Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
This morning we woke up and made a big breakfast: whole wheat pancakes (with chocolate chips for the adults), homemade whipped cream and sliced strawberries. Yum. Seriously. Yum.
Then after Leo's nap we headed to we walked over to the Bio Pond where Leo spent over an hour poking things with sticks. No ducklings today, but he loved watching the fish and turtles.
He had a blast with Larissa and Maddie and they made sure to tire him out (he did fall asleep as soon as I put him down).
At the end of the day we walked home via Baltimore Ave and stopped by several local restaurants to take advantage of $1 deals at the Baltimore Ave Dollar Stroll. We enjoyed samosas, mango lassis, chicken wings, ice-cream, and a bunch of other fun foods.
I love that we had an awesome day without leaving the neighborhood or spending more than a few bucks. Now Leo is soundly sleeping and I'm about ready to turn in myself. We've got a few more big days ahead of us!
