Special Event: Taste of Arlington

Sunday, May 17, noon-5pm
Tickets are $25 per pack of 8 (gets you 8 tastes)
Ballston, VA (by the Ballston Common Mall - click on image above to be directed to the site)

Come on out to Ballston and have a lovely lunch on Sunday. A great event for kids to try new things and see lots of people. The National Science Foundation is involved this year and apparently there is going to be some hands on activities for the children. Many area restaurants are participating.

I will warn those of you with food allergies (or have family members with food allergies) that this is a tricky event to navigate. You will not be able to special order foods at most places and cross contamination is pretty inevitable.

Class: Ballet Petite in McLean

We attended the open house at Ballet Petite in McLean this morning. Talk about fairy princess wonderland! LG had a great time dancing, pretending, and dressing up. The class was a little fast paced for LG - I think she would have preferred to play with each element for a bit longer- but we did our best to keep up. After class LG enjoyed a wonderful little tea party with Goldfish crackers and lemonade.

Trial classes are continuing daily for the rest of this week for only $5.00 per class and you can attend as many as you like. The mini-spring session (reminds me of May-mester in college) will run for the last two weeks in May and the first two weeks of June. A four week session costs $80.00. There will also be two 4 week camp sessions held this summer. Right now times are pretty flexible. They have teachers in place and will create classes based on demand.

Ballet Petite is opening in McLean, VA and to celebrate they are having $5.00 trial classes this week and next. Classes are offered for children as young as 18 months (mommy and me). Pre-registration is not necessary just stop in for the class that works best for you and try it out (see the schedule).

The summer session starts at the end of June and runs until August. I do not have information about pricing, but I will update this post once I do.

LG and I are going to check out a class next week. Tutus and fairy wings here we come!
