The weather has warmed up and I am committed to getting the girls outside today. The only problem with outside play right now is the mud. With piles of snow melting, there is nothing but mud all around. So, I've decided it is time for a trip to Clemyjontri Park. Clemyjontri is an amazing park, run by Fairfax County, in McLean, Virginia. It has a carousel (which won't be open until warmer weather) along with four distinct play areas, each with different themes. There are playhouses; pretend airplanes, firetrucks, school buses; musical instruments; and largest play structure I have ever seen. When my mother-in-law saw Clemyjontri Park, she couldn't believe there was not an entry fee. Like so many attractions for kids in our area, it is free. For our purposes today, the best thing about Clemyjontri is that it has a rubberized play surface, i.e., no mud (though as you can see from the pictures below taken in previous years, one of our favorite areas is in the dirt and will undoubtedly be muddy).
