apiss I’m continuing my Shout-Outs today to tell you about a FANTASTIC RESOURCE for parents in the DC Metro Area.  It’s A Parent In Silver Spring.

If you haven’t gone to this blog, do so (after you finish reading this).

This site gives you TONS of stuff to do in the DC Area.

It’s written by a fellow DC Metro Mom Contributor.

I frankly don’t know when this woman sleeps,

but she does, because she is super sweet and always looks great when I see her :)




Go to Hershey!

  We just got back from Hershey Park and what a great time it was!

If you’ve never gone- Go!

The drive is EASY from the DC area: just get on 270 and drive straight, I mean it.  270 becomes 40, and 40 becomes 15, you then make 1 exit and that’s it, until you see signs for Hershey Park.  It takes 2 hours, with no traffic, 2 hours and 15 minutes with traffic… it’s SO EASY!

They’ve expanded their waterpark, it now contains a big wave pool, with cabanas, and a lazy river ride.

We were there for 2 days and didn’t even take our bathing suits, if you want to do the waterpark stuff- devote a whole day to it.

AND YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT ELSE IS NEW?!  There are touchless hand sanitizers at the entrance to every kiddie ride:  you just put your hands under the box and it sprays your hands with hand sanitizer… BEST IDEA EVER !!!!!

And the bathrooms- because Moms care about this: 

All the bathrooms have touchless soap dispensers, touchless water faucets, and touchless paper towel machines !!!!!!!  YEY !!!!  No germs, or almost no germs!

If you can go on a weekday- DO IT!  We went on Thursday and there were no lines for rides; by Friday, there were lines, but still do-able.  I wouldn’t even attempt to go on a Saturday, it must be So crowded.

Next year we’re going on a Monday and Tuesday.

Click here for Hershey Park coupons and packages available!

During the month of June, for example, go to any DC area CVS, Dairy Queen, or Quiznos and pick up $12 off coupons for regular admission!

YEY- go to Hershey- the sweetest place on earth !!!
