Fun Things for Kids to do in DC | Huntley Meadows Park



FIELD TRIP! With working overtime as the theme of our summer, I was so excited to finally have a opportunity to take a day off to attend my son's summer camp field trip to Huntley Meadows Park.

Huntley Meadows Park

This 1500 acre reserve of wildlife and beauty is located just 10 miles south of Washington, DC in Fairfax County's Hybla Valley.


The 1/2 mile boardwalk through the wetlands is a perfect trail for young minds to observe and appreciate this brilliant landscape.  


The majestic park is home to beavers, frogs, and dragonflies as well as over 200 different species of birds. 



Wetlands are a huge wonder for young minds, as they purify polluted waters and help to control the destructive power of floods and storms.


Much a part of its historical significance is that the wetland is naturally shaped by the drifts of the Potomac River.


With a solar eclipse and a hurricane, this summer alone showcased the spectrum of how natural wonders can cause both fascination and devastation. It's never too early to start learning about the importance of preserving and protecting our natural resources and Huntley Meadows Park is a great place to start. Happy Labor Day!

Secrets of a Glossy Lip


Victoria's Secret Lip Gloss

My grandmother used to always say, "Paint a little bit of gloss on those lips---even if you're just running to the corner store!" Lol! I definitely try to follow this wisdom. I keep a tube of gloss in the inner pocket of every handbag. My favorite is Victoria's Secret Satin Gloss Strawberry Fizz and it's on sale now 2 for $18! 


Fun fact: water is the best lip moisturizer and flavored gloss stimulates our salivary glands :-)

$79 Back to School Special



It should come as no surprise that good oral health is connected to better school performance. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) lists dental decay as the most prevalent chronic disease among school age children. It can lead to severe pain, early tooth loss and even affects early child development. Toothaches prevent children from playing with peers and tooth loss contributes to poor nutrition, speech and self-esteem. According to the Children's Dental Health Project, children with poor oral health are nearly three times more likely to miss school. 


Don't let your child fall behind his peers. Visit your dentist regularly and practice good oral hygiene at home by brushing, flossing, and rinsing after meals and before bedtime. Contact us today about our $79 Back to School Special, which includes exam, x-ray, cleaning, and fluoride!
