It takes a little advanced planning, but in the summer I love to take the girls to the Discovery Room at our library. There are two rooms in the library filled with toys that parents can reserve for an hour at a time, and let their kids play. I like going in the summer because of the insane heat that comes to live in the DC area. But the rooms fill up fast so I have to reserve them weeks in advance, hence the advanced planning.
Yesterday we were in my favorite of the two rooms. This one is smaller, but it has great big windows that I can look out at the neighborhood while the girls play.
Isn't this the cutest little grocery stand?
