I can't take all of the credit for finding this group; a friend of mine told me about it. :) I've found two groups in the area and I've attended a handful of events for each one. It's a good way to meet other moms and kids in the area. We live on the edge of Alexandria so most of these events require me to drive at least 15 minutes, yet it usually takes longer because there is always traffic. :) This has helped me in learning the area though. These meet-ups have been good because it gets the kiddos out and playing with other kids. I'm enjoying meeting other moms, yet this always takes a little longer. ;)
We've have discovered some great parks, libraries and of course museums. We also checked out our first frozen yogurt place, Sweet Frog.
This is the poster they gave! I picked one up with intention of getting it framed and hung in the kids' playroom. :)
They gave the kids crowns, which Ava seemed more interested in than the legos towards the end of playtime. :)
