In the almost 18 months since I’ve started this stay-at-home-mom gig, I’ve dragged Liam to play dates in all sorts of places, which often times he seems to merely tolerate. But today, oh, today. Liam was in H-E-A-V-E-N. Check it out:
Cera, Jeanie, Liam and I ventured to Gravelly Point Park, just spitting distance from Reagan National Airport, to watch all sorts of planes land. We saw some of these big commercial jets, smaller planes seating maybe a dozen or so, and even a plane with two propellers! The kids were a little scared at first, but as noon arrived and the planes were landing almost every minute, they grew accustomed to them. Soon enough, in between bites of veggie sticks, Liam would nonchalantly say, “Bye bye airplane,” as it passed us by. And as if this wasn’t enough, we also had a grand view of the boats floating along the Potomac (several of those Duck Tours passed us by), and in the distance we could see both freight trains and the metro crossing the bridge. Planes, trains, boats, oh my! If Liam could speak better, he’d say, “Best play date ever, mom!”
Finding the park was a little tricky (thank god for GPS), but it was so worth it. Needless to say we’ll be heading back again soon. I’m kicking myself for not bringing the video camera. For now, this video I found on YouTube will give you a better sense of it.
