Where to Play on the Weekdays: May 9-13

Jammin' at the Arboretum

Jammin’ at the Arboretum



Monday - Spend some time outdoors at the National Arboretum. Go for nature walks through the woods, visit the Washington Youth Garden, romp in open green spaces and at the old Capitol columns…so many ways to enjoy one of the loveliest places in the city. Hours are 8am – 5pm, and admission is free.

Tuesday - Make your way up to Baltimore to visit the Maryland Science Center to explore a variety of neat hands-on exhibits, play in the Kids Room, build in the new Science & Main area, and so much more. Hours are 10am – 5pm. Admission is $20.95/adults, $16.95/ages 3+, free for 2 and under. (I suggest checking out their membership options — if your family of 4 goes just twice in a year, it’s worth it. Plus, there’s reciprocity with other museums around the country.)

Wednesday - Join a brand new series for parents and little ones at Cathedral Commons. The mixed-use development on Wisconsin Avenue is launching Mornings with Mommy & Daddies, Too!, a free interactive program for children of all ages on the second Wednesday of each month. At this first session with a “Music in Motion” theme, experience songs, dances, finger-plays, stories, instrument play, creative movement, puppetry, and more from 10-11am. Then from 11am – 12pm, create puppet crafts and enjoy sweet treats after the show. Meet at Newark Street and Wisconsin Avenue (in front of Giant Food). Admission is free.

Thursday - Let little ones jump the morning away during Toddler Time at SkyZone. The trampoline park has locations in Columbia, Gaithersburg, and Manassas, and they all offer the special sessions for ages 5 and under from 9:30-11am on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Admission is $5.

Friday - Join the National Portrait Gallery for some creative fun at an Open Studio Friday session. All ages are welcome to explore a different art medium each week with all kinds of neat projects. Drop in anytime from 1-6pm. Go earlier or stay after to explore the museum’s collections, too! Museum hours are 11:30am – 7pm. Admission is free.

PYOP: Pick Your Own Produce at These Local Farms (2016)

strawberries_sash

The pick-your-own produce season starts with strawberries in the spring, then continues with more delicious fruits and veggies in the summer and fall. Heading out to the farm to do some picking is among my favorite seasonal activities with the kids. It’s a nice break from the urban bustle and a great chance to show them that food doesn’t magically appear on a plate or shelf at Trader Joe’s. Even better, the enjoyment continues with a basketful of fresh produce at home. The time is ripe for planning your own PYOP outing. Here are some great places around the area to reap some of the best treats of spring, summer, and fall. Happy Picking!

Schlagel Farms
Less than 20 miles from DC in Waldorf, MD, Schlagel Farms is one of the more popular pick-your-own strawberry places in the area, their season always beginning before other area farms, and because that’s the only PYO they offer. The fields are now open and should be yielding berries until early June. While there, you can also purchase bedded plants grown in their greenhouse, romp on the playground, and treat the kids (and yourself) to ice cream. Schlagel’s is open for picking from 8am – 7pm seven days a week. Follow them on Facebook to stay updated on their pickings.

Westmoreland Berry Farm
The farm in Virginia’s historic Northern Neck also opened their strawberry fields this weekend and welcome visitors to PYO daily. Come June, the rest of the berries (black, blue, rasp, and cherries) will become ready for picking, and peaches, nectarines, and plums won’t be far behind (see their approximate schedule here). Along with PYO, there are goats to visit and play areas for kids. Picking hours are 10am – 4pm, and the farm is open 9am – 5pm.

Great Country Farms
At the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the Shenandoah Valley, Great Country offers much more than just pick-your-own opportunities. The farm is well known for its big seasonal festivals and fun farm-themed attractions. A hayride takes you out to the picking fields, and kids might spy an emu or goat on the way. Visitors also have access to the barnyard, mazes, a cow train, and jumping pillow. Their u-pick strawberry fields usually open mid-late May, and you can get updates on them via Facebook and Twitter. Asparagus is available at the same time, and more berries, plums, tomatoes, okra, green beans, and hot peppers will follow in late spring and summer. The weekends of May 28-29 and June 4-5 are the annual Strawberry Jubilee with live music, pie eating contests, tart tosses, tasty food, and more. Babies 9-12 months can compete in the diaper derby, a crawl to the finish line, to compete for great prizes. Admission is $8/child $10/adult on weekdays, and $10/child $12/adult on festival weekends. Open daily 9am- 6pm.

Wegmeyer Farms
With three locations in Northern Virginia, Wegmeyer offers varying strawberry picking experiences as the settings differ at each. PYO at a historic homestead in Hamilton, then set up lunch at a picnic table (BYO) and let the kids play on a John Deere tractor slide and playground. At Oatlands, the patch and era-themed attire at the historic mansion will whisk you back to the 1800’s, and while visiting the patch is free, you can purchase tour passes for the garden and/or mansion. And at Gilbert’s Corner, enjoy strawberry picking in its most natural state; the no-fuss location is perfect for a simple outing. PYO will begin on May 9 and should last into June. Check the website for updates, hours, and directions. Bonus: They are offering a 25% discount to KFDC readers on weekdays — just mention KidFriendly DC at the register!

Mackintosh Fruit Farm
The family-owned farm in the Shenandoah Valley will open their farm to the public in late May (check the website or call for an update) with access to their strawberry fields, then blueberries, peaches, brambles, apples, and paw paw. Plan on lunch while you’re there — along with fruits and veggies, the farm also offers a variety of menu items prepared fresh every day from their own produce. Walk it all off afterward along a trail that winds through the fields and woods of the farm and let the kids play it off on the playground. This year’s hours have yet to be confirmed, but last year they were open Wednesday through Sunday from 8am – 6pm, plus Memorial Day, Labor Day, and Columbus Day.

Homestead Farm
Strawberry season in the popular pick-your-own fields opens in late May (exact date still TBD). More berries, peaches, apples, and pumpkins come later. Along with PYO, there are animals to visit — goats, pigs, and chickens are some of the farm’s residents. And Homestead also scores high on scenery — the lovely pastoral setting in Montgomery County makes you feel like you’re way more than 20 miles from the city. When open, the farm operates seven days a week, and PYO hours are 9am – 5pm. You can sign up to receive weekly updates by email to stay up to date on their crops.

Larriland Farm
About an hour’s drive from DC in Howard County, Larriland Farms always gets great reviews for both it’s produce and beauty. The pick-your-own season opens in late May, and they’ll have the full spectrum of berries following soon after, just about every variety of peaches, and loads of veggies available from June – October, too. (See the list and view schedules on the website.) Larriland employs Integrated Pest Management, meaning pesticides are a last resort, to keep pests below an acceptable level with minimum harmful impact on the environment. Summer hours are Tuesdays 9am – 8pm, Wednesday to Friday 9am – 6pm, Saturday & Sunday 9am – 5pm.

Butler’s Orchard
The farm might be best known for it’s Halloween and Easter extravaganzas, but they have a bounty of great crops, too. Strawberry fields will be open to visitors everyday, expecting to start in late May. Following soon after are more berries and sugar snap and English peas. Potatoes, apples, and pumpkins come later. Picnic there and let the kids play on the slides and playground. In past strawberry seasons their hours have been 8:30am – 6pm during the week, and 8:30am – 5pm on weekends. Stay updated on their status by following on Facebook and Twitter.

Hollin Farms
Across the river in Fauquier County, VA, Hollin Farms will kick off its strawberry picking season in late May (they anticipate around May 21), and it should last several weeks after that. Hours are 9am – 4pm Wednesday through Sunday, and they recommend calling ahead to confirm that picking fields are open. But, wait, the PYO doesn’t stop with strawberries! Other spring crops that you’re welcome to gather include lettuce, peas, arugula, bok choy, radishes, Swiss chard. Come summer, peaches, plums, blackberries, red raspberries, sour cherries, and summer veggies are available. Fall brings apples, home-grown Pumpkin Patch, fall vegetables, potatoes, and dig-your-own peanuts. And a special P.S. to meat lovers: they pride themselves on their grass-fed beef.

Green Truck Farm/Hartland Farm
Recommended by a KFDC reader last year, Green Truck and Hartland Farms are located out I-66 less than an hour from DC (Green Truck is situated at the entrance to Hartland). According to the Green Truck Facebook page, strawberries will be ready for picking mid-May, and they are predicting a monster of a season that will peak around Memorial Day weekend. The rest of their PYO offerings run the berry gamut, along with tomatoes, winter squash, and pumpkins. And at Hartland, you can get berries, then peaches, apples, and pumpkins later in the year.

Do you have a favorite PYOP farm that you don’t see here? Feel free to share in the comments, if so!

Experience 18th-Century Living History at Claude Moore Colonial Farm

cmcf_enter

It’s one thing to learn about the past through books, at a museum, or a visit to a historic site. It’s something else entirely to engage with history in an immersive way that makes you feel as if you’ve been transported back in time. This is just the kind of experience Claude Moore Colonial Farm offers its visitors. The living history locale in McLean, VA, portrays family life on a small, low-income farm just prior to the Revolutionary War with an authenticity that goes well beyond artifacts to view and sites to explore.

cmcf_buttermaking

The park recreates life on a tobacco farm in the year 1771. Not only is Claude Moore set up to look as a farm would have in the 18th century, a family portrays life on the farm and goes about what would have been daily activities back then. Even more (yes, there more!), visitors are not just welcome, but encouraged to participate in those activities and get a real feel for what life was like nearly 250 years ago.

All of this is open for the public to enjoy from April through December — visitors are welcome on a walk-in basis Wednesdays to Sundays. Claude Moore Colonial Farm also offers special programs and events for enhanced and more insightful farm experiences.

cmcf_interpretors

Junior Interpretor Program
Kids ages 10 to 17 can truly find out what working on a colonial farm is like through this unique program. If accepted, Junior Interpreters portray, in costume, the colonial farm family’s children, working at least one day per month. While the program is fun, it also requires work — planting, weeding, tending to and harvesting crops in the fields and kitchen garden, performing maintenance tasks on the 18th century site, cleaning animal pens, assist with cooking, and much more — in all weather conditions. Read more about the program and application process here.

cmcf_marketfair

18th Century Colonial Market Fairs
Three weekends a year, the Farm hosts Market Fairs that draw both locals and visitors from across the country. Showcasing 18th-century life in a festive way, the events feature demos by tradesmen and artisans, a variety of musical and dramatic performances, arts & crafts for kids and adults, and savory food (often cooked on spits), and more. It’s like Ren Fest on a smaller scale, in a different era and place. Fun and educational for all, the Market Fairs are easily a family bucket list item.

cmcf_blacksmith

Farm Membership
Once you visit Claude Moore Colonial Farm, there’s very good chance you’ll go back, making membership worth it. Rates are very reasonable ($40/family per year), and benefits include a season pass giving you unlimited admission, entry to all three Market Fairs and other special events, discounts on workshops and gift shop items, and use of the Farm’s library. Ready to sign up? Fill out then mail in the application form or call 703.442-7557 for more information.

Lebanese Taverna: A Local Favorite for Family Dining

lt_owen

Like many families, we have our go-to restaurants for a meal out together. And by go-to I mean places with menus that appeal to all of us, are welcoming to the kids, and generally make us feel that our dining experience was worth it.

lt_fattoush

Lebanese Taverna is a go-to for us. Everyone in our family loves eating there — which is pretty amazing given Sasha’s very picky eating habits. The delicious Mediterranean flavors and nice variety of dishes practically guarantee a good meal every time we go. I usually try something different every visit, and have never been disappointed. A Kids Menu offers smaller portions of several Lebanese classics, plus there are many small plates (Mezza) and sandwiches on the main menu that work for children, too.

lt_kids

lt_sash

Owen and Sasha went that route at a recent dinner there; she ordered the Camel Wings (chicken wings with a flavorful spice) while Owen opted for the shawarma (he likes it so much, he gets the regular size). And we usually start with hummus for the table because it’s so good — this, on top of the bread and seasoned oil they bring to each table.

lt_hummus

lt_boullabaisse

That same visit I tried their boullabaisse for the first time, Levi the salmon, and we both really enjoyed our entrees. I’ve also had the chicken shawarma, falafel, fatteh, lamb sandwich, and a few of the salads on other occasions. (I did mention it’s a go-to, right?) And not only is it a great place to go to with the family, it’s also a nice spot with just grown-ups. We’ve even been to a friend’s birthday celebration party at the Woodley Park location, which was lovely with a great selection of food in a private room.

lt_torey

lt_fettah

The ambiance at Lebanese Taverna needs to be noted, too. The restaurants are nice and spacious, with hand-painted tiles decorating many tabletops and big, patterned pillows lining benches. That, and friendly, inviting service make the atmosphere relaxing and comfortable.

lt_interior

And while Lebanese Taverna is one to keep in mind for any time, a perfect occasion to go with the whole family is this Sunday when you can enjoy the Mother’s Day Unlimited Mezza Special. It’s a great opportunity to sample many great dishes and, of course, celebrate the special day. Cost is $37/adult, $15/ages 6-12.

lt_chefplatter

Hungry? Go reserve your table now!

Lebanese Taverna is a family owned and operated chain of restaurants in the Northern Virginia, DC, and Maryland area. The first restaurant was opened in 1979. Today, there are 6 restaurants, 4 cafes, and a market that focus of providing authentic Lebanese cuisine and bringing a bit of the culture too. They have been voted Best Mediterranean Reader’s Choice by Bethesda Magazine and consecutively listed in the 50 Best Restaurants by Northern Virginia Magazine.
