On Tuesdays I have both boys with me for the full day. I normally work for a couple of hours in the morning and then I make an effort to take the rest of the day off. What I've found is that the best Tuesdays are the days that we get out of the house, which means that I get away from my computer and other responsibilities and have some time to just spend with the boys.
I've had River Farm on my list of places to visit for a few months now, and we finally made it out this week to explore, wander and rest. It's located just off of George Washington Parkway in Alexandria, and it's really much more than a farm. It has several beautiful gardens, as well as a large meadow that overlooks the Potomac River. It's also home to the American Horticultural Society headquarters. It is so peaceful and close to our home that it just might become a more regular Tuesday destination.
