Our chapter planned several fun and informative activities during International Babywearing Week. One thing we planned was an auction to benefit the chapter. This was a great success and raised $400 for our local chapter!

|A group of members wearing their little ones at the farm|
|L and her little one look out over the elephants|
|M wears baby on her back while observing the elephants, and big kid S photobombs in the background.|
|Even 5yr olds get tired. M let me borrow her wrap when my 5yr old announced she was worn out|
|Half our group meets up to see the big cats!|
|Another chunk of the group plays with the bears|
On Sunday we had an event with Takoma Attachment Parenting that gave us a chance to do a little outreach while the bigger kids did crafts!
|AM demonstrates using an SSC to a group of parents|
|The toddlers, preschoolers, and big kids enjoyed making crafts|
Our friends at Honest Soul Yoga in Alexandria hosted us for "Rogue Monday." This has become a DC-MD-VA tradition where we host an event outside of the exact dates of IBW, but on the federal holiday to give working families a chance to participate. This year we did a fitness and yoga walk. This was a lot of fun!
|The group warms up in the studio before the walk|
|Making our way out and working on some yoga poses|
|The group spread out down the path on the walk|
|Then we gathered together for some more yoga|
|This was a tough one, arm dips on the edge of the playground|
|A little relaxation break|
|Cool down back at the studio|

and a group of educators including Angelique, Jessica, and Ann Marie from our chapter.
