Celebrating Alani’s Birthday at Cabin John’s Regional Park

Being so close to Halloween, Najwa’s friend Alani had a halloween costume-themed birthday celebration at Cabin John Regional Park in Bethesda.

The celebration started out with a train ride through the park. The little choo-choo train chugged along, passing by cartoon and Halloween characters for a type of treasure hunt, the kids marking off each item off a list of items they’ll see.

Next came the playground area.

Afterwards, the kids all went to California Pizza Kitchen. The lady and I sat separate from them (so no photos), but a good day.
