Happy Weekend to you all. Isn't it wonderful when Friday finally rolls around?

So, there's lots of exciting stuff on tap to do this weekend.

Firstly, if you like sharks, check out the National Aquarium DC, which is doing its Shark Weekend. Saturday & Sunday, from 10 am to 4 pm, they'll have family friendly activities involving sharks. They'll have a shark feeding, scavenger hunt and shark-tooth touching (not while the tooth is still in the shark's mouth, though). The DC Aquarium is at 1401 Constitution Ave., and Shark Weekend activities are included in the price of admission. For more information, go to

Next up, the Greenbelt Library branch is having a free show discussing Amelia Earhart, the famous pilot who disappeared on a trip. The show is for all ages, so long as they can sit still and listen, and starts at 2 pm.

Also, this weekend, if your kids like cooking, they can attend a Wegmans Kids in the Kitchen class, at the Woodmore Town Centre location. The theme Saturday is Southwest Fiesta. According to Wegmans, "It’s fiesta time, so come party with some of the yummiest veggies ever! In this class you’ll prepare 2 veggie-licious dishes: Pineapple, Jicama & Cucumber Salad (what’s a jicama? You’ll find out!) and Veggie Queso Nachos." The class is for kids 4 and up and costs $5 per child for those with a Wegmans card. For more information, go to There are two classes, one at 10 am and one at 2 pm.

Well that's about it for me. We're aquarium members, so we'll probably check out the Shark stuff this weekend. I hope you all have a great one.  More fun things can be found on our calendar.
