Hitting the spray park with your kids, rocking the Dockers and Blackberry holster, tearing up during Toy Story 3 and tending the hydrangeas are totally gangsta.
Was your first thought, “Where’s a ‘splishy-splashy’ I can hit with the kids today?” You’re a mom or dad after my own heart.
Here are the places I checked out a while back in “A Hot Time to Get Soaked” in the Post. A ** indicates places we have re-hit this year and I still give two thumbs up.
Good Hope Sprayground in Silver Spring **
South Germantown Splash Playground
Friendship (aka “Turtle”) Park in NW DC **
Riggs-LaSalle Sprayground in NE DC
Hayes Park Sprayground in Arlington
Lyon Village Sprayground in Arlington
Fairfax Corner Water Fountain Feature
And the Downtown Silver Spring fountain, of course.**
Here are our favorite local public pools:
MLK, Jr. Outdoor Pool & Lazy River in Silver Spring
Germantown Indoor Swim Center – nirvana on high heat index days
Poolesville Public Pool (yup, it’s a hike, but on the drive here little ones can take their morning nap)
And you KNOW I’d love to take the time to post the deets and link to a ton of more fun stuff going off in the area this weekend, but I got shiz to do. I gotta put a cap in those dust bunnies and shopvac the Goldfish from the Odyssey. Then I be rolling to the G to pick up Capri Suns, hot dogs (nitrate-free, natch) and extra Goodnites for my homies. Because being a mom is pretty sick too.
