The Yards Park // Favorite Things

Lunch at the Navy Yards with dad...
We met my husband for lunch today. The neighborhood near his office is experiencing a renaissance of sorts. In 3 years it is going to be fantastic. But it’s pretty great right now.  It might not surprise you that staring into this fountain, with it’s sign encouraging play, turned into this…
No worries, I thought. I have a towel in my trunk and a change of clothes for the little one. Only I didn’t have a towel, but I DID have a random fat quarter in my trunk.  The FQ did a pretty good job of toweling this crazy kid off. I foresee us spending a lot of time in the coming months “visiting dad.” :)
Note: It was only 71 today. I did not expect him to actually get all the way in…

    That is too funny! The picture in my head of you drying your kiddo off with a fat quarter is just priceless 😉 See, fabric can be handy! Totally remembering this story to tell my husband later :)

    Lol, he was just embracing the sign’s instructions. Hope it wasn’t a HTF Fat Qarter ;o)

    That first pictures is adorable! My oldest will swim anywhere, anytime, any weather too, since he was teeny tiny!
