Righting a Wrong

After the hair razing disaster last week, we finally got to “Miss Annie’s” to try and do something to clean up Wendy’s shorn locks. It’s hard to hide bangs cut to the scalp, but she did the best she could with what she had to work with.  While it doesn’t look perfect, it is...

Review:  Hidden Oaks Nature Center

Last week, I met up with my sister-in-law for an outing at the Hidden Oaks Nature Center in Annandale.   The location was a good meeting point for us and I was curious about the special outdoor play area there.  It was called the “Nature Playce”, designed by an Eagle Scout.  After reading a glowing...

Kid Drop Zone 2

Last week, Wendy was in “big kid” camp all week, which meant it was just me and the boys each day.  On Wednesday, I decided to take them back out to the Kid Drop Zone. We went once before in June (I chronicled our experience here) and had a great time.  I wasn’t sure...

Theatre Camp

We have entered the “camp” portion of our summer.  We had a wonderful week of VBS, followed by a fun week of “theatre” camp.  I signed Wendy & Sam up for this on a whim, not knowing much about it, but I had heard positive things from my local mom’s group.   The Educational Theatre...

This year, we headed south to spend our July 4th with Grandma & Grandpa.  It’s been way too long since we got down there, and the kids were dying to spend some time with them in the country.  That, coupled with the long holiday weekend and the fact that it coincides with both of...

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...

Free Fun in Falls Church

Concierge Christmas Trees

Last Saturday, we embarked on our annual tradition of selecting our Christmas tree. In years past, this tradition has involved driving to a cut-your-own tree farm, wandering around the woods in the brisk cold air, while I systematically rule out every tree in sight.  After tromping around for a while,  I come to realize...
