I am going to be completely honest here. Last summer for me was a WASHOUT! I went to the pool every morning with my children, but too many of my afternoons were spent writing a certain book while they played at home. This summer, I am committed to breaking the monotony and made a list of 100 Things to Do this Summer with Kids in Northern Virginia.
The list is very non-specific. For example, "ride a train" could mean the Metro, Burke Lake Train, or even the mall train at Tyson's Corner. I'm not sure if we're going to get to everything on this list, but I am challenging myself to complete at least 90. I hope you enjoy! Please share, pin, and print it out the PDF.
Our friends at the fabulous Washington FAMILY Magazine gave us a two night stay at the Gaylord National Harbor to give away to one lucky reader. The stay must occur before June 15, 2013 and includes accommodations, one morning of breakfast, champagne, and parking.
Encore Stage & Studio invites you to fall in love again with Sleeping Beauty, an amusing and playful presentation of the well-known fairytale. When Princess Briar Rose is born, the King and Queen throw a celebration to welcome their new daughter. The whole kingdom is invited, save for one truly wicked witch. In revenge, Evilina sends the young Princess an unforgettable birthday gift—a sleeping spell which can only be broken by true love’s kiss.
Check out this delightful "theatre for kids, by kids." We have been to several of their shows and always find them fun, professional, and entertaining. Performance details are below:
