Happy Weekend!

Happy Friday everyone! This was our first full week of summer vacation, and my little family had a pretty good week! Sophie is attending a local summer camp where the campers go on a different outdoor adventure every single day, and she’s loving it so far! In the first week alone they went hiking around a local nature trail, splashed around in two different splash pads, and visited the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens (where National Park Service Rangers gave them all “Junior Park Ranger” pins). Also, I had the chance to tag along with my husband to a preview of the new Game of Thrones pop-up bar run by the folks behind the Columbia Room, Eat the Rich, and Mockingbird Hill. If you’re in the DC area, the GOT-inspired décor and cocktails are both worth the wait! I highly recommend the Dothraquiri and Lady Mormont. You can catch a little sneak peek of the décor here! But in the meantime…
