Cute Kid Pix July 2018

More photos that didn't make their own blog post...

We started going back to the library after our Florida vacation. We went to a pajama time. The older kids did not want to join in, which was appropriate since all the children there were under five. Our youngest loved it. Later in the week, I took him to Picture Book Parade where we made a craft. The word of the week was "Imagine" and we made a very imaginative craft--an ice-cream cone puppet!

Opening the glue, always tricky

Mint chocolate chip is a new favorite flavor

We went to my old stomping ground, Silver Spring, for the Saturday morning famers' market. We had fun walking around, looking at displays, and admiring street performers.

We bought a snack at the Greek bakery stand. We had a honey cake called Ravani and a walnut honey cake called Karidopita. The guys at the booth liked our kids and gave us an almond cookie as a bonus!

Super yummy snacks!

We meant to buy pita breads from them later, but our route back to the car did not bring us by their stand. We had our snack at the splash fountain, which wasn't on at 10 in the morning.

We saw a mobile outdoor office space that looked cool.

The most "open" cubicle farm ever!

Even more cool was a juggler we stopped to admire along the way.

Savage Mill hosted a "Where's Waldo?" scavenger hunt through most of July. We found him in several stores and went to the big party at the end of the month. The used book store hosted the party, which featured a trivia contest, the grand prize drawing (we won one of the secondary prizes), and a visit from Waldo himself!

Mom had a business trip which meant we had to drop her off at the airport. Near the airport is a playground which is just across the street from the end of a runway. The kids got to play on the equipment and occasionally see a plane taking off overhead.
