The Better Part of Valor

My plan for this weekend was to go to The Mall to the Smithsonian Kite Festival.  The folks we were going to go with couldn't make it, however, and then I realized that not only was today the Kite Festival (and thus the first day of the National Cherry Blossom Festival), but also the National Marathon and the first game at the new Nationals stadium.

So we went house-shopping instead.

I used to be really into the big downtown DC crowd scenes, but not with a kid and not with the lack of energy I have as an overworked middle-aged mom.  Instead we drove around suburbia, with the kid happily pointing out all manner of vehicles (and mailboxes.  He has a thing about mailboxes).  He loved it.  He's just a fiend for seeing new stuff and watching from a car, and he loves that he knows stuff now.

This didn't get us any farther in our potty-training goals, however.
