Today's adventure took us to the "airplane park." It's official name is Gravelly Point and it's right next to Regan National Airport. It used to be an old land fill before they made it into a pretty fun open grassy area. It's tradition to come to this park (for my church) every spring break. I haven't been since Butterfly was the boys' age.
So we packed a lunch, found all the summer hats and the sun screen, and off we went! Lala and Vinny came along too which was so much fun. We really enjoyed being with them and having an enormous grassy area to run around in.
The first thing that Butterfly and Vinny did when they got to the park was take off their shoes and socks. Then the boys wanted their shoes and socks off. Okay. They spent the day running in the grass barefooted and having a great time.
The boys were pretty scared of the planes at first. I mean, this park is right next to the run way and the planes get pretty close.
We went down to the waterfront and threw mulch into the river. I took a picture of the cherry blossoms. Looks like that's as close as I'm going to get this year. Sad.
What a fun day at the airplane park!
