Last week was Magnolia’s spring break and we enjoyed every single ounce of it! While we used the week to knock big to dos off the list, like going to the doctor and dentist, we also had our fair share of fun! Last Thursday we took advantage of the gorgeous weather and headed downtown for the day.
After dropping Kinnick off at daycare we hopped on the MARC train and headed into the city. It was so fun taking the train downtown with Magnolia and walking around Union Station. Our first stop was the zoo, so we hopped on the metro and spent a few hours walking around the zoo before the crowds arrived.
We ended our trip to the zoo with a ride on the carousel, which was really fun! I love these moments with my family!
After the zoo we headed to Dupont Circle and enjoyed lunch at Pizza Paradiso. We enjoyed bruschetta to start and then shared a pizza. It was delicious!
After lunch we walked around the city and made our way towards the mall. We stopped by City Center and grabbed dessert at Milk Bar. We were less than impressed with Milk Bar, which was a bummer, but Magnolia loved visiting City Center and seeing the kites.
Once down on the mall we walked around and enjoyed the sunshine. It’s always so fun seeing the Capital and Washington Monument.
6 hours later we made our way back to Union Station and hopped back on the train to head home.
Magnolia has so much fun and was absolutely exhausted by the time we headed home. It was such a fun day in the city and quite the workout! It was a blast!
