It's been our tradition that the girls get an overly sweet donut for their birthday breakfast. We'll, here we are in the DC area and I haven't found a donut shop or grocery store anywhere near our hotel. So, while we were out for our evening walk after we ate dinner we stopped in to several bakeries and none of the had donuts. Our last stop was Starbucks, I knew I wouldn't find a donut there, but we did find Abby's favorite dessert in the entire world - M&M Rainbow cookie - and this one is about as big as her head!!!! So, here she is with her Birthday Breakfast!!!
Right now the girls are lounging in the comfy king-sized bed watching some cartoons. Once we get showered and dressed we'll walk down to the playground, I'll surprise them by letting them get some ice-cream at Maggie Moo's.
We were going to go to the Rain Forest Cafe for dinner tonight, but they're not in Tyson's Corner anymore :( so I found another place that's sure to make the kids happy. It's Bugaboo Creek Steak House- it's a Canadian Rockies themed restaurant complete with talking Mountie, trees, Moose head and other animals. It's supposed to be really kid-friendly so hopefully it's good!
It's funny, on Abby's first birthday we were traveling up to the Adirondack mountains in New York. Her second and third birthdays were low key. Last year she had a big polka-dot birthday with lots and lots of friends over. Here we are on her fifth birthday on vacation in Maryland. She's been excited because it's been a "hotel birthday" were we've had a breakfast buffet every morning, played all day, eaten out every night, then swimming and staying up late.
