It's not everyday a boy turns eleven!

On this day my baby did just that. He decided we should go to Target for his bday. And while this is not exactly a DC Daily shot.. it is a shot of the daily life of a DC kid. There are sadly, not many toy stores in our neighborhood. SOOO... in celebration of our son's eleventh birthday, we rented a Zip Car, drove on over to Target in Alexandria and he picked out a bday bionicle . It was everthing he wanted his birthday to be! We drove around a bit, then headed home to build said bionicle, while I made a special birthday cake. He had planned on dinner of veggy burgers and fries at Johnny Rockets, but our neighborhood joint was dirty and we decided not to bother. Instead we filled up (and boy, I mean filled up) at Chipotle near Dupont Circle. Then we headed home for that cake... did I mention how full I am?? Luckily I do have that cake pocket! **

On a side note, if you are ever in DC, or any of the other cities that make car sharing available... we highly recommend Zip Car. You can rent a car by the hour, day, or days. Cars are convenienly placed throughout the city and rental price includes gas, insurance and the car. It is very convenient.

**Information about cake pockets can be found in this book!

Happy Birthday to the young man Jenny, and the Zip Car idea looks real good, ideal for the larger towns and cities, a great way of reducing vehicle use and reducing carbon emissions.

Nothing like going to Target, I grew up on Target because I am from Minnesota where they are based. I Lived in D.C. for 2 years and worked there for 7. It is nice to see some great pictures from all around. Keep up the nice work.
