When we were preparing to leave Maryland for New York I worried that we wouldn’t have enough things to do with the kids. Living on a huge Navy base offered so many family oriented things to do that I was certain it couldn’t be matched elsewhere. So far, I have been impressed with our little community. Some weekends we have TOO MANY things to do and actually have to say no to some activities.
Here’s one that we are glad we didn’t miss: Making gingerbread houses at the local library. The kids had so much fun and I was so happy I didn’t have to buy all the supplies (candy!) or do any clean up besides tossing away our used napkins and plastic silverware.
Although the kids know that the gingerbread houses are just for decoration, I can’t help but notice that the homes seem to be missing a few pieces of rooftop candy. I wonder how long they will last before the little nibblers decide to let them be!
