    I can also make the 10th at the park - my LO will be six months!

    I hope you bees end up getting back together in September! My LO is so close in age and we'll be in town for a wedding.

    Saturday the 10th it is. I'll be the 8 months pregnant lady yelling things like "DO NOT JUMP OFF THE TOP OF THAT STRUCTURE" at a two and a half year old boy.

    @Lozza: woohoo! Now, what time?

    Time-wise, the earlier the better for me- LO goes down for a nap between 12:30 and 1, so something like 10 AM would be ideal. Is that too early for others?

    10am is great for us, I can either drop her down for an early nap or keep her up until 10. Heck, we'll be walking over there, she can take a short cat nap in the stroller on the mile walk over.

    Grr... We have a birthday party on the morning of the 10th :(. I hate that I'll miss again! @mediagirl: Want to come back for a fall meetup?

    We are out, I think. B has swim lessons from 9:30 - 10 a.m., and it's an hour drive to MoCo. I'll try to make the next one. Afternoons are better for us.. our mornings are packed on the weekends.

    We can do 10am! Or really any time that day is fine since LO is still in between one and two naps.

    I think I can make 10am work on the 10th. It's about a 40 minute drive from Alexandria, so I may be a little late. Will it be easy to locate everyone once I arrive at the park? I guess I should just look for the gathering of moms and little ones? A picnic and a chance to meet other local moms sounds great :)I'll be 24 weeks into my first pregnancy by then.

    @Lozza: You better believe I'll be taking my little one to the Building Museum once he's old enough I'd happily meet up there!

    @mediagirl: You will have to come back!!!

    I'm not going to make it. Due to an ill family member, M and I are driving up to Ohio the weekend after this and I think two long drives in two weekends would be a very bad idea.

    i'm sorry i have to pull out as well--LO got pink eye and an ear infection, so probably not best to bring him around all the other babies and parents. have a great time!

    Something came up for me this weekend - so I'm going to have to pass this time around. I do hope I can meet some of the local bees before I have our first little one in November!

    We have a playgroup this weekend, so we're out too unfortunately.

    Are we going to do a fall meetup? Maybe we can do something in DC? Like the National Zoo. It won't be crazy hot.

    Hmm, shall we skip August and just try to plan something for September instead?

    I'm cool with DC, though I think at some point it would be nice to do something in MD since I think past meetups have generally been in VA. And I want to meet our Baltimore Bees

    @mediagirl: You will have to come back! We're only about 4.5 hours away!

    @littlek: those babies are so cute!
    @Katrocap: Yeah, I'm in Harford County. I work in the city though and used to live downtown (Mt. Vernon, Fells Point). Do you like Hamden? I haven't been there in awhile, but used to like to visit the shops there. We should have a Baltimore meetup sometime.
    @Lozza: I can try to make a meetup in Sept - DC is kinda far for me, but I'll see what I can do. I do love the zoo.
