Happy New Year! Bye bye 2017

A new year, and my resolution to post more content. It's been a busy year for me career wise and family wise and this site has been neglected.  Hopefully I can post more interesting MoCo related content for your viewing pleasure. These are some topics I plan to hit. If you have anything else I can research or post about, please let me know!

  • Neighborhood summaries: Crown, Kentlands, Fallsgrove, King Farm
  • MCPS: budget hot topics, magnet programs, immersion schools
  • Cultural: Chinese Schools, CCACC, etc.
  • Popular MD vaca spots: Ocean City, Annapolis, Baltimore
  • Hot eats: new restaurants, new entertainment centers

As Temperatures Fall, No Halt to Evictions Across Most of the Country

As Temperatures Fall, No Halt To Evictions Across Most of the Country

NPR just published the above story about landlord rights to evict. It paints a good picture of the trickle effect starting from the defaulted tenant, to the defaulted landlord.

Summer's Farm - 2017

I've been MIA, I know. But wanted to share our recent trip to Summer's Farm in Frederick. We've been blessed with such warm weather lately.  It's hard to imagine that Fall is upon us!

Their Fall Festival is in full swing: Corn maze, pumpkin patch, fireworks, bouncy area, BABY GOATS, slides, apple cannons, festival food, campsites for rent (when you want to do night time smores), and lots more.

Take a look at this. The farm has a pumpkin cannon that they shoot. While we were there, they happen to do a candy launch. Pretty cool!

What's Happening in Rockville - Dec 2016 - Cookies with Sana 12/17/16 2-4pm

How is it December already?  Check out City of Rockville's 'What's Happening in Rockville'

I'm most interested in Cookies with Santa at the Thomas Farm Community Center.  $4 per person at the door for holiday crafting, cookie decorating and writing letters to Santa.

Also a holiday favorite is the annual City of Gaithersburg Winter Lights Festival. Located at Seneca Creek State Park, little kids will love all the lights as you drive through the Winter Wonderland.  They charge by the car so load up those SUVs and minivans!

Summers Farm - Maryland Pumpkin picking

Instead of going to our usual Butler's Orchard for pumpkin picking, we decided to go further out to Frederick to Summers Farm...which was a hit!  Best part was we went on a Friday which meant no lines and hot hot weather!  Can't beat this 80 degree weather...

Tons of cute cut outs for pictures

My youngest loved the little goats. did you get up there?!

Pumpkin picking

This is when she said "HEAVY"

Never knew a big pile of corn was so fun.
