Snapshots of Our July (Arlington, VA)

Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes made of ticky tacky,
Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes all the same.

There’s a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one,
And they’re all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same.
— Malvina Reynolds

We left for vacation mid-July, so these are some photos I took in the beginning of the month. During the heat wave one of my best friends came to visit with her two kids and we visited the zoo (yay for misters)  and Flight Trampoline Park.

Later in the week, I took my kids to the Building Museum's pool exhibit. And then, as always, plenty of lazy days on the couch. I thought Parker, Trout, and Freya would want to spend more time at the real pool, but nobody seemed very interested. So goes summer . . .
