It is official. LG, Mama, and Dada are moving to Ashburn, Virginia. We have enjoyed our time in Arlington (7 years) but we have outgrown our home so we are moving to the suburbs.
This blog is going to stay put but will not be updated. I will leave it as a resource for Arlington parents. If you happen to live in or around Ashburn, VA, I have good news! I will be starting a Get Out of the House (Ashburn, VA) blog soon. LG and Mama will have lots of new places to explore and new classes to take!
If you have another blog or website that provides helpful information to Arlington county parents, please feel free to leave the link in the comments section.
Thank you for reading about our adventures. We hope that we have helped you find some fun ways to Get Out of the House!

Looking for a lunch out with the kids today? I got the following email from California Tortilla announcing today's (June 10th) special promotion:
"They are also taking donations of $1 for the Make A Wish foundation and are handing out $1 off coupons for future visits. Not a bad deal. is Kids Eat Free Day at ! That's right--we'll give you a FREE kid's meal for each adult entrée that you purchase (go ahead--get thousands), plus we'll give each kid a fabulous new California Tortilla-centric kid's pack. Tell me that's not exciting."
We typically frequent the one located in Courthouse, but I've been to several and have never been disappointed.

LG and I are not familiar with this instructor but we do endorse yoga of all sorts and family yoga sounds like a lot of fun!

Swimming classes are probably already full but there is still time to sign up for other fun classes for you and your tot this summer (most classes will start in July or August).
