Sharing recipes, crafts and frugal living, the challenges and triumphs of parenting a neurotypical child and a child on the Autism Spectrum.

The CocktailMom name remains, however with a new focus on healthy and authentic living.


Mount Vernon

One of Logan and Zane's favorite places is Mt.Vernon. It's a little on the pricey side to get in ($15) but after one day of fun we decided to put that money towards a membership($25 for the year per adult, both kids are still free). And so well worth it. The boys love walking around through the museum, going into the hands-on-room, playing with the huge dollhouse. The last time we were there they played so well together with the wooden soldiers, setting up battles and asking questions about where George Washington put his sleeping bag. With their Easter money, the boys headed to the gift shop where they were able to buy their own wooden soldiers. I think we will be seeing a lot of battles in the months to come. But it's also a great way to learn about geography as we map out the actual locations where George Washington's soldiers fought. Unschooling Summer here we come!
If you are in the area...make a day trip and check it out. A great place to take the kids and let them run around!

What a great idea! We'll have to visit museums, and such during the summer. I have big plans for the summer here. We live in California so it's not too bad of a drive to get to cool places.
