The Washingtonmental Monument

At the beginning of summer, as I considered the various activities I wanted to make sure we did this summer, one of them was to go up the Washington Monument.  It was something I remember doing as a kid, and a memory I wanted to make sure our kids acquired.  It used to be,...

Review: The Kid Drop Zone

One rainy morning, as I was scouring Our Kids for ideas to keep *my* kids occupied,  my eyes alit on a place called “The Kid Drop Zone“.  Lots of new indoor play areas are cropping up around town, but this one had appeal because it had a flexible start time and no set end...

Strawberry Pickin at Great Country Farms

A little ways back, we met up with friends at Great Country Farms for a little strawberry picking.  We love GCF. We participate in their CSA and love coming out to the farm for their “pick your own” fields, plus all the other great activities available.  To name just a few:  the jumping pillow,...

Wendy was so crestfallen on Thursday to learn that school was over, I had to line up a playdate fast to cheer her up again.  All spring she has been wanting to get together with her friend B from school, but I never seemed to cross paths with B’s mom to set anything up. ...

Up Up and Away!

Last Friday was a beautiful day, and we had no plans, but I couldn’t decide where I wanted to take the kids.  I finally settled on a new destination for all of us – the Goddard Space Flight Center.  Considering the weather, I probably should have picked an outdoor destination, but I wasn’t up...

We had the opportunity to go to “open play” at Monkey Business last week.  MB is another one of these “kid gyms” that has fun stuff to do and climb on, as well as classes for the pre school aged crowd.  All three kids had a great time running around and it seems to...
