    Christmas Events around Washington, DC

    Thanks! I was thinking about an hour, which is a good amount of time for us. We were thinking to get there around 5pm -- does that seem wise? Any parking tips? There are some pointers on the event's website.

    Christmas Events around Washington, DC

    I think we're going to do Miracle on 34th Street in Hampden, Baltimore on Saturday as long as the weather is OK. (It's supposed to be much milder but possibly rainy!) My 4-year-old loves houses with holiday lights. We've never been so would appreciate tips from anyone who has!
  3. I'm looking forward to trying Qwirkle when my daughter's a little older. I just learned about it recently, but maybe you already know about it.
  4. I'm also glad that my daughter is too young to know about L.O.L. Surprise! But I'm sure there will be something equally inane when she's older.
  5. The Tysons store has a doll hair salon: Watch as our expert stylists give dolls a new look! Choose doll hairdos, ear piercing, pampering services and more.
  6. I'm very grateful that my 4-year-old hasn't discovered American Girl dolls yet (though we did receive marketing mail from them when she was less than a year old)! (I assume that since my daughter is a couple of years younger than your younger daughter they're interested in different things. Mine's pretty into Paw Patrol and My Little Pony.)

    Connecticut and Rhode Island

    I've eaten this (though not in awhile). Anyone else? @Bob Wells?
  8. There's a very similar thread, Eating on I-95 between DC and Jacksonville, FL. Perhaps the two should be merged?

    Podcasts - What Are Your Favorites?

    The third season of Serial is pretty good. It's about the criminal justice system in one courthouse in Cleveland. I love criminal law (if not for that whole litigation thing I might be a criminal lawyer), so I find it especially interesting.

    The Blues Brothers

    My husband loves both "Animal House" and "The Blues Brothers." He's probably seen each movie a thousand times, starting from a young age. I saw both for the first time in my late 30s or early 40s. I really didn't understand the appeal of "Animal House," but I thought "The Blues Brothers" was pretty good. The Cab Calloway scene is awesome.

    What Are Your Kids Eating Tonight?

    Spaghetti with meat sauce and Parmesan cheese. Mounds and mounds of Parmesan cheese.

    What Are Your Kids Eating Tonight?

    Four-year-old, after proclaiming that she didn't want it and she'd just skip dinner, ate leftover Chicken Curry with C´╗┐oconut Milk with rice along with a few strawberries.

    Clams casino, mussels in white wine, spaghetti and meatballs. Tons of bread.

    We're semi-regulars at the Silver Spring Goldberg's as well. I've noticed they have bialys, but I've never eaten one. I'm far from a bialy expert -- I think I've eaten one or two in my life and the last time was a long time ago. Now I want to try one again! As for parking, there's a county lot diagonally behind Goldberg's (per Google Maps it's the Columbia Boulevard (Lot 12)). It's a 2-3 minute walk to Goldberg's and handy if, like me, you're too much of a wimpy parker to deal with Goldberg's lot (which is indeed a shit show!).
