Grab the Kids and Go Make Some Summer Memories

Summer is almost here. The kids have less than 1 week left and then the 5am morning alarm clocks get turned off. I just realized that this is the final summer I will have with my eldest. Next summer we will be getting ready to send him off to college. Years ago I ran a marketing campaign that we only have 18 summers with our kids so we should make the most of it. Now I am having to live that reality myself.

I have two very busy teenage boys who have already filled our summer calendar up with camps, activities and a vacation with extended family. I would like to say we can slow down during the summer months but my calendar says otherwise. But we still try to have dinner together every night. Every Tuesday night we head to a local restaurant for $5 burgers and fries. That is a better deal than some fast food chains. It is just so nice to slow down and spend time with each other. We all have to put our phones in a stack in the middle of the table. Whoever reaches for their phone first has to pay for dessert. Try this game the next time you are out to dinner with teenagers. Trust me they love their allowance money more than checking their latest text.  

There are so many great museums and activities in and around the metro DC area that cost little or no money. I encourage you to pick a few and enjoy with your family. As a family we like to try new activities together. From an early age we have included our kids in the planning of summer activities. We ask each family member to write down 3 summer activities they would like to enjoy together. Then we put them on our calendars and make them a priority. The activity must be local or a day trip and everyone must participate. So yes Mom has had to go fishing and my boys have gone to a cooking class. We have had lots of fun and made so many memories.

Here is a small list of some of our favorites over the years:

  • Visit the Smithsonian
  • Mini Golf
  • Make Homemade Ice Cream
  • Cooking Lesson
  • Photography Scavenger Hunt
  • Nationals Baseball Game
  • Drive In Movie
  • Hike in Shenandoah National Park
  • Paddle Boarding
  • Water Mine Water Park
  • National Zoo
  • Fishing
  • Shakespeare in the Park
  • Navy Band Concert
  • Old Town Alexandria Walking Tour
  • Make and Fly a Kite
  • Nighttime ride to view DC Monuments
  • Paint a picture
  • Pizza at the Pool

Try to make the most out of the time spent with your kids this summer.  Relax and don’t over schedule. Let them sleep in till noon. Serve them ice cream sundaes for dinner. Throw water balloons when they jump off that final school bus ride. Build a fort in the family room. Pitch a tent in the back yard and sleep under the stars. Whatever you decide to do as a family make sure to take lots of pictures because childhood summers go by way too fast.

I absolutely adore this organization of the Summer Reading events for summer 2016 from Prince William Public Libraries.

I'll share these each week, as well, but as many of you know THESE EVENTS WILL FILL UP QUICKLY!! If there is something you absolutely want to take your children to, I suggest giving yourself a calendar reminder for the day that tickets become available.  Also, if you can, be open to the idea of going to another branch.  Maybe Chinn is full, but Nokesville is offering the same event on a different date- you probably have a better shot of getting tickets at a smaller library.

For events with online registration available, visit HERE. 

And now, on to the good stuff!

Summer Memberships at Freedom

We love Freedom Aquatic and Fitness Center on the Manassas Campus of George Mason University. My husband works out daily, and I love the track and Zumba classes for days I can't run outside.  My oldest does swim team there, and we've had a lot of fun playing adult volleyball for date nights.  I know that for some people a school year membership doesn't make sense- but over the summer it totally can! The indoor pool is great (whether you're sun-challenged like me or whether you don't want to weather the weather #homophones), and the fitness classes are super fun! 

If a summer plan makes the most sense for you, Freedom offers two options.  You can customize a family plan, or you can take advantage of a student/teacher discount.  Details on both programs are below! 

See you at Zumba!

Is your daughter a boss? Has she organized her Barbies into a corporate hierarchy? Does she win cookie sales every year? Do her lemonade stands rival someone on Shark Tank? If so, you should definitely check out Camp SheEO!
With four camps in Prince William County (Manassas and Woodbridge NOVA Campuses) and additional locations all over the region, Camp SheEO exists to empower the CEO inside every girl and to encourage girls to take steps toward business and community leadership.
Each week of camp, trained Success Coaches will help girls at Camp SheEO enrich their ideas about what it means to be a business owner and leader.  They will also host a guest speaker from the local business community.  There are two levels of the camp, First Steps and Next Steps, both of which run for one week from 9am-4pm and are $290. 

Both First Steps and Next Steps are intimate enrichment experiences, which means that space is LIMITED.  If you know that this would be a perfect opportunity for your daughter to explore her passion and interests, then sign up today! Owner DeShawn Robinson-Chew explains the program like this- “We really want to introduce and encourage entrepreneurship in girls and show how they can have a leadership role in their community.  We are hyper-focused on business, entrepreneurship and financial literacy.  This is the only program doing this” 

Camp Dates in Prince William County Are:
Week of 7/18/16 First Steps
Woodbridge NOVA CC

Week of 7/25/16 Next Steps
Woodbridge NOVA CC

Week of 7/11 First Steps
Northern VA CC Manassas

Week of 7/25 Next Steps

Summer Reading 2016

Published: 05/25/2016
Prince William Libraries has revamped Summer Reading again.  You may remember last year's program included various options for points that you logged online, but that system is totally gone, and this year there's a passport program.

The 2016 Summer Reading theme is "Stay Local, Read Global" and includes programs for children through adults.  There is a paper reading log available per parent requests to have something to turn into the schools, but it is not a program requirement. Starting June 1 you'll be able to sign up online for the program.

Younger children will receive a paper passport, but you will still need to register them online. You will have to pick up the passport in the library you register with.  Every week, parents will be able to set a goal for their children, and then once a week the child can come in and tell the volunteers at the library how they met their goal and get a stamp.  Any child who collects five stamps on their passport will be able to choose a book to take home to keep.  There are no weekly coupons for everyone, but there will be chances to complete weekly challenges to possibly win a coupon or prize.  You might want to ask your child's teacher for input on realistic goals for how to divide up summer reading for your child.
Older children will also be able to come in for weekly check-in entries.  At the end of the summer, those entries will win a special prize valued at $100 or more.  There will be two prizes per branch awarded. Students can receive extra entries by writing book reviews for use on the library website and Good Reads.
Adults can enter to win a $15 Target gift card per branch per week.

Summer Bowling Options

The popular website "Kids Bowl Free" offers free games of bowling all summer long for your registered children.  There aren't any bowling centers near us that participate, but if you know the kids are going to be spending some time at Grammy's house or with the cousins, you can check to see if the bowling center near them is participating.

The AMF Summer Games program isn't completely free, but for just $4.95, kids ages 15 and under can bowl three games per day all summer long.  Add an adult summer games pass for $14.95 and you can bowl with your kids, too.  

For either program, make sure that you sign up online before summer begins and passes run out.

4th of July Fireworks 2015

Permalink to 4th%20of%20July%20Fireworks%202015
Published: 07/02/2015
I wasn't going to post one of these because so many other local bloggers did big pan-DMV ones, but so many of you have asked, so here goes:

Waiting on a Date:
Tim's Rivershore's "Not on the 4th" Fireworks show had to be rescheduled due to weather, so watch their facebook page for a new date and time!

Sure Bets: 
**The City of Manassas Park will host their 4th of July Celebration from 7-10pm at Signal Hill Park.  There will be food trucks, fun, and, of course, fireworks.

**The City of Manassas will host its "Celebrate America" event with one of the largest fireworks displays in NOVA! You're looking to be around the Train Depot/Harris Pavilion, or check out the large field by Grace UMC if you want to stay out of the crowd but still see the show! Rides for kids start at 3, food vendors at 4, fireworks at 9:15 on the Museum lawn. They also host several contests which you can sign up for online

**In Woodbridge, the Potomac Nationals will host their annual 4th of July Game followed by fireworks.  We love attending the game, and enjoy the Americana of it all :) If you want to just watch the fireworks, you can park and sit outside the stadium or try to park in the County Crossing Center- but I heard that last year police were clearing the area (I'm not sure if that's correct, it's just what I was getting messaged- we went to the game).  Start time on the fireworks is 15 minutes after the game ends, which depends on how the game went.

**I know a lot of you have told me in the past you enjoy going out to Great Meadow for the fireworks display.  It's $35 a car at Wegmans in advance or $40 a car at the gate, so make sure you take your friends' minivan and not your Geo Metro! Kids events start at 4pm and this year they are closing a road to allow traffic to exit for a smoother finish to your night.

You can attempt, but I don't know much about: 
In Dumfries, Montclair does fireworks at Dolphin Beach, but you have to be an MPOA member, so if you live close enough that you can happen to see, you're in luck, but otherwise that's all I know.

Quantico does fireworks, if you have a friend on base or a military ID.  I would assume you can go to Quantico Town and watch, too, but I have never tried that, so if anyone knows the routine, let me know :) Here's the flyer for the 4th of July Fireworks, which, if I am doing my math correctly are at 9:15pm, but again, the actual event is ONLY for Marine families- although I know people do watch the fireworks in Quantico.

Did I miss your favorite? Do you have details on one of the ones I only know about in passing? Head over to our facebook and let me know!

2015 Potomac Nationals Home Games

Published: 05/14/2015
I tried to match up the promos I thought you guys would be interested in with the Potomac Nationals Home Games.  There's a few promotions every night, but some of them (i.e. Beer Tasting Night) aren't kid-centric so I skipped those :) Fireworks nights are hilighted in yellow, and the ever-popular $1 Monday is in aqua.  As always, BUY YOUR FOURTH OF JULY TICKETS EARLY!! That sucker sells out every year! 

I would WAY prefer to go to a P-Nats game than a Nats game.  I know that's sacrelige to some of you, but I hate parking in DC, I hate the enormous stadium where you are so far removed from the action, and I hate baseball.  There, I said it.  

And yes, I know, hate is a strong word. 

If I'm going to watch baseball, I'd rather be close in, not packed in (although on 4th of July it's cozy) and not pay some sketchy guy $50 when he's probably going to scratch up my car to park it.
