This year seems to be going by so quickly. June, like most months, was a bit crazy around here. According to my camera roll, one of the first things we did in June was go to the beach. We drove about an hour away to Matapeake Beach to teach Kidd to swim.
It’s the closest dog friendly beach to DC and it’s actually pretty nice. It’s right over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge – across the bay from Sandy Pointe. It’s also free, unlike Sandy Pointe. Although Sandy Pointe has actual bathrooms, not port-a-potties. But they don’t allow dogs during the summer. So that was a no go for us.
Turns out Kidd knew how to swim all along. We adopted him about two years ago (he was 3 & 1/2) and he’s never swam in front of us before. When we first got him, he jumped to me in my Uncle’s pool, but he was weighed down by his harness. I launched into full on mommy freakout mode and I think I scared him. He hasn’t attempted to swim since. Although, in all fairness, we’ve only taken him to dog parks with small lakes and ponds. He hasn’t had the opportunity to swim with us since that day. You can see my little pumpkin killing it at the swimming game in the video below.
What else did we do this month? We’ve gone out to brunch a few times, but I didn’t take pictures. We also went out at night a few times. Here are the only two pictures I’ve got from our nights out. Sometimes I’m a really awful blogger.
We’ve gone to see a few movies in the park – La Bamba and Spaceballs. La Bamba was for Ivan, Spaceballs was for me. Although I honestly enjoy both movies.
I also managed to score tickets to a Q&A / Screening of All the Presidents Men with Bob Woodward. That was pretty epic. That’s one of the things I really love about living in DC. There are so many cool opportunities that you just don’t get anywhere else.
I also met a few friends to see Wonder Woman when it first came out. Has anyone seen it? I was very impressed with it.
Later in the month, we went on a double date to a Lady Antebellum concert. I just love outdoor concerts. It was pretty hot that night and I accidentally got rather tipsy. Oh well. I wasn’t driving. No harm, no foul.
The final highlight was attending a party at the Mexican Embassy. That was on the 30th, so the last day of the month.
Last night we attended an event at the Mexican Cultural Instutiude (& Embassy). We were treated to Mexican beer, tequilla, food, art & musical performances. It was such a fantastic night. The building hosts all sorts of events and is open to the public during the week. If you're never nearby, pop on in… It's absolutely gorgeous! #washingtondc #dclife #mexico #dc #architecture #embassy #datenight #culture
One last note – I also completed Fitness Blender’s 4 Week FBburn program. Anyone else use Fitness Blender? I’ll be doing a full review of the program soon. I just started on their 8 week FBfit program, which should take me right up the wedding.
That’s it for June. What was your favorite part of the month?
