how beautiful are those lanterns and lights at the new city center in DC?! we were driving by on our way to someplace else last week while visiting the district and those pink lanterns caught my eye out of no where and i was all, “we gotta pull over and go check that out!” we got lucky with a parking spot around the corner and BAM! there we were. sometimes i get sad that all these great places have popped up since we moved away. like, where were all those incredible playgrounds that are currently in the district when we lived on capitol hill? we were driving by a couple and i couldn’t even believe it. i remember driving all the way out to arlington once to find eleanor a swing when she was a baby. there weren’t very many swings around the parks or playgrounds when we were on the hill. exciting how much has changed in the last few years!
we tried out fruitive for smoothies which is also new since we moved away. and josh took these photos from outside the place while we drank them! he was holding conrad while he walked outside and snapped them and conrad was laughing so hard at us. haha! he’s all, you guys look silly.
but then he wouldn’t give josh his smoothie back and we all were laughing pretty hard at how cute it was!
what are these two going to be like in the years to come as they get older and the gap in their age doesn’t feel so big?! i just hope they are always kind to each other. they really love each other right now, so the odds are good, right?
not sure if those lanterns up are up for a limited time or forever, but i love them. i want to get a few in a corner of the nursery. how beautiful would that be!
