Growing up, my parents and grandparents would take us to various museums and exhibits wherever we were. My grandmother referred to this as “getting cultured” – a phrase that I have grown to love, and now willing choose to do with my own family. With the reopening of the East Gallery in DC, we decided to take a break from our usual weekend trips out west and headed in the opposite direction.
Sometimes I wage a debate in my head about whether the infant stage is easier or if the toddler stage is easier. I have come to the conclusion that it really depends on what it is, the time it will take, the time of day, and let’s be real the day itself (i.e. – sometimes H will allow us to sit through a meal, and other days she won’t even when all other factors are the same.) Today’s adventure came after a BIG breakfast, before nap time, and a bag equipped with snacks. Thankfully, H LOVED being out and about getting “cultured”.
On our way home, we stopped at Astro Donuts and Fried Chicken in Falls Church. The shop is small, but the artisanal donuts are awesome. More importantly however is their fried chicken sandwich. This sandwich can be custom made with a variety of breads, sauces, and extra toppings. We always get the fried chicken sandwich on the donut bun with Siracha Mayo. AWESOME. (Just don’t think about the calories.)
