Things to Do - Grateful List (August 2014) & Cherish This Day

cherish (1 of 1)

August seems so long ago. I don't usually list the things for which I'm most grateful - our health, our life, our family (wow, that came out cheesy) - but I never forget how important they are.

HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!! Don't forget to check out this week's amazing on Cherish This Day.

* I know it's cheesy but I can't stop singing Meghan Trainor's All About That Bass
* Listening to the XX's Coexist & Bleachers
* Reading Alice Munro's The Progress of Love (esp. Miles City Montana)
* Watching Boyhood
* Watching Maleficent at the Cinema Drafthouse on a rainy day
* Watching Stage Coach (yes, old John Wayne movie) and 180 Degrees South for family movie nights
* Watching the Up Series on Netflix
* Attending the Band of Horses concert/ballet at Wolf Trap (thank you, Colleen for awesome tickets!!)

* Slow cooker red beans and rice (via Cooking Light)

* The National Building Museum's big maze (which is now gone)
* Winterthur, DE
* Walking 7.21 miles on a rainy day at Great Wolf Lodge
* Attending a great (i.e. extra innings) Nationals' Game as a family (though F read a book the whole time and P asked about quarterbacks)
* Hiking at Potomac Overlook Park (we saw the overlook!)
* Trapeze class in Yards Park
* Ziplining with P and F at Harper's Ferry Adventure Park (though check-in was a mess)

* T arting like crazy
* Happy hour at Dori's before the Arlington County Fair
* New library books (for everyone) on a lazy day
* A lazy weekend without any tv (we needed this)


F - going to the county fair, a great family, a nice house to live in and food to eat, going to the zoo, back to school shopping

P - the Building Museum's maze, ice cream at the fair, going to the playground, making popsicles, going on dog walks, eating junk food at the baseball game, taco night, watching Project Runway, my new backpack, my new bow and arrow, going to the adventure park (but not the lines to get in)

T - a nice house to live in and food to eat, my new gun [from the fair], ice cream, my magic wand [from Great Wolf Lodge], MagiQuest, making popsicles, going to the baseball game, that the girls let me in their room if I study with them
