Fun at Fairfax Corner

Sunday August 23, 2009

We finally made it out to Fairfax Corner a couple of Wednesdays ago to check out their “Little Tots Summer Fun Series“.    FC is a relatively new development in Fairfax County that has lots of shops, a big fancy movie theater and some great restaurants.  It has a plaza out in front of the theater that has a water fountain feature that kids can splash in.  Also, on every other Wednesday throughout the summer, they have free kids entertainment, starting at 10:30.

When we went, the entertainment was a group called “Mad Scientists.”


This international group is (according to their website) “the world’s leading science enrichment provider … [and] provides a unique assortment of hands-on programs, live presentations, theatrical productions and innovative products.”  In other words, they have really cool, fun science-based shows.

And I have to say, my 5  and 4 year olds were captivated, as was most of the audience.

Adam wasn’t old enough to sit still for the show, so he and I checked out the fountains.   They were much more to his liking.

After the show, the fountains got crazy crowded.  We played for a few minutes, then headed over to Pot Belly for lunch with friends.

It was a fun outing, and I definitely plan to take the kids back, tho maybe not on a Wednesday, just to avoid the crowds.  If you do want to check out the shows, the last one of the summer is this week – you can check out the schedule online.

Here’s the rest of the pics from our outing:
