We live in a rural area so there isn't that much to do. We do have a wonderful nature center nearby. They have a classroom inside full of all kinds of stuff for kids. Snakes, tree frogs, birds, there's a puppet show there also. We also spend alot of time at the library. And sometimes on Friday we go to Chuck E Cheese. One of my goals for next year is to have more field trips.

Living right outside of DC and on an end of the Metro line we have tons of stuff to do. Smithsonian museums, whatever's in DC at the time, etc. plus within a few miles of where we live we have Mount Vernon, Woodlawn Plantation, whatever the name is of George Mason's place, etc. Oddly enough with all that right here the closest planetarium is about 10 miles away. Go figure. Mostly we stay home. Lugging around the big kids plus the toddler and my 32 weeks pregnant self isn't all that fun lol

Butter - When my Dh and I first got married we lived near DC . He was in the Navy and stationed at Andrew's Air Force Base. Wow, I wish we had half of the museums and things here that y'all have there. How wonderful that you have access to so much.

We did too!! I so regret it now, but I had a chance to go see DC once, but I didn't go because I was pregnant and had BAD morning sickness. I was afraid I'd hurl on the metro! Now, of course we don't live anywhere near it!

Honestly I take what we have available majorly for granted. I've lived near it all all my life so it doesn't seem like such a big deal. I grew up a mile down the road, on the same road (Dr. Samuel Mudd Rd lol) from the Dr. Mudd house for example and have only been there twice.

I'm also a museum snob now. The Smithsonians and the National Zoo are free so when a place expects us to pay to get in I feel cheated somehow. I know most museums around the country cost, but I've been really spoiled.

I live in an area with access to do a few things too. Nothing like DC of course. We took the kids to Busch Gardens on Tuesday b/c the weather was so nice. They enjoyed seeing all of the animals. There are quite a few things at our fingertips. We spend a lot of time with family right now since my 2 are so young and aren't quite interested (or have the attention span) to do some of the other museum type things around us. My kids play outside 90% of the time and when it's raining they do arts n crafts or watch movies. Our next place we want to take the kids is to the FL Aquarium. I really think they'll enjoy that.
