We are halfway through Spring Break in the #DC  area, and these outing ideas with kids work even on overcast, chilly days. 
I had the extreme pleasure of being the lead guest last week on Let's Talk Live, our nation's capital's news show focused on entertainment, style, fitness and health. They had me on to talk about – what else? – activities to share with your kids! Check out the segment, and below the video player ...

+Michele McGraw I was supposed to go on the show before NoVA schools were out, but then I was bumped for breaking news. (The features life: never have to race to the station in the dark of morning, always bumped for the big stuff.) Hope you guys had a wonderful week off and you are enjoying being back on the school routine.

I hardly ever post recipes, but this one was necessary after a winter of barista visits! http://aparentinamerica.com/2015/03/21/swimsuit-season-chai-tea-latte/ #sweetswaps

Looking for a grade 3-8 classroom to participate in a virtual field trip Google Hangout with The Nature Conservancy. 

It is happening on Wednesday April 8. Would LOVE to feature and host your class! 

This virtual field trip will focus on two wildly different American ecosystems, both dependent on the same precious resource: Water. 

On this virtual field trip, we’ll first travel to the lush, rain-soaked splendor of the Olympic Peninsula and explore the urban watershed of Seattle. The abundant rainfall here provides plenty of water, but keeping it clean and safe can be a challenge. Next, we’ll head to Arizona’s dry, desert landscape and take a tour down the Verde River, one source of water that nourishes this parched land. Here, people and other living things must adapt to a limited water supply, yet sudden and violent storms can dump seven inches of rain in a single night!

Have you ever had a manicurist come to your home? First timer who is now obsessed. The price is the same as going to the salon when using the DC area's new biz BeautyinaBeat.com. This is not sponsored but OMG so convenient I feel like sharing with all the busy women I know! http://aparentinsilverspring.com/2015/05/dc-in-home-beauty-service-beauty-in-a-beat.html #BIABatmydoor  
My blogging neighbor Tammy of JeepMomma.com and I had an utter blast reviewing the newly-launched Beauty in a Beat (BIAB) service at my house. BIA is Washington, D.C.'s new convenient and instant on-demand beauty services app (free on iTunes and Google Play) that brings highly trained hair ...

+Elizabeth Thorp Nope! He applies numbing cream, does not hurt. Did not have the numbing cream on my neck and it felt like little rubber bands, no biggie. I took the Metro home after!

My kids were some of the first kids to try out the new Terrapin Explorers course for kids age 5-9. They were dazzled by the experience. Both of my kids are a little tentative when it comes to heights and risks, but the gentle, confident, plentiful staff members are with the children every step of the way. Knowing they had constant support made all the difference to Charlie and Eve, and gave them the confidence to walk tightropes, cross swinging bridges, crawl through suspended tunnels and even zip line. The course has two levels, accessed by the decks of a wooden tree house home base. There are 22 elements for the kids to conquer. There is a great viewing area for parents. My kids also had a great time on the outdoor climbing wall. Children are completely and safely supported through harnesses, helmets and many safety procedures. I think it would be a fun kids' birthday party.
