Summer is in full swing and we hope you are exploring nature, playing at parks, and enjoying camps. BUT… We’d love to see you too! We are craving time with fellow moms and a fun motivation to go somewhere new. Plus, our sweet kiddos have some energy to get out!
We’re excited to announce our Summer 2021 Park Hop Playdates! Mark your calendars and come! This is VERY informal and simply a playdate, so please don’t stress at all. Just show up! We will all be wearing name tags (and will have one for you too!). We’d truly love the opportunity to meet you. We will even have some goodies for the first few moms who show up. And each mom will get a DC Area Moms pen! Be sure to bring water, sunscreen, a hat, comfy shoes, water gear if you come to a place with a splash feature, and bug spray if needed. Be there or be square!
We hope you have gotten your vaccine, but if anyone is not vaccinated, please wear a mask per the CDC recommendations. We’re still in a pandemic and we are in this together. If you haven’t gotten your vaccine yet, please get your vaccine asap to help everyone!

Will you come to all of the Park Hop Playdates? We’d love to see you there! These are Parks are all mom and kid approved, plus, if you haven’t been to them, it’s worth your time! AND you get to meet new mom friends. It’s a Park Hop Playdates win-win!
Also, if your kiddo is in camp or daycare, you are still welcome to come sans kiddos! Even if it’s just for a bit to say “hi” — we’d love to see you! We know these times won’t work well for everyone, but we hope at least one Park Hop Playdate works for you!
