Places to Go - Theodore Roosevelt Island (Washington DC)


A few weeks ago, on a rather chilly Monday morning, T and I headed over to Theodore Roosevelt Island for some much needed outdoor time. T. Roosevelt Island has always been one of my favorite places in the city - the loop walk is approximately 1.3 miles long, making it doable with young children (and stroller-tolerant, if not exactly stroller-friendly). Plus, I like how the trail changes from wooded terrain to a beautiful boardwalk through marsh, with plenty of spots to feed ducks along the way. And in the middle of it all, a gigantic statue to marvel at.

If you're looking for somewhere to go this holiday weekend, I highly suggest a visit to Theodore Roosevelt Island. Whatever you choose to do, have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!


*Extracurricular overload - I really enjoyed this short piece on the joys and anxieties of too many activities.

*Amazing pictures of an 100 year old artist who provided safe hiding for Jewish teenagers during WWII.

*Daily Candy Kids' 14 Ways to Set a Festive Family Table - I really want the felted acorn kit.

*Alice Munro strikes again, she amazes me. And Grace Coddington just released Grace: A Memoir, which is at the top of my Xmas wishlist (well, under an ipad).

*ABC Family has their 25 Days of Christmas Schedule available for download online. So make room on your DVR.
