Time to Soak Up Every Bit of Summer!
August 5, 2015
Even though there’s still an entire month of summer relaxation to be had, we fully understand that parents are revving up for the whirlwind of chaos they’re about to experience, as they start to get the kids ready for the 2015 – 2016 school year.
However, there’s no need to panic! There’s still plenty of time for parents of ROSS’ affordable apartments near Washington, DC, to create lasting summertime memories.
Here are ROSS’ Top Four makings for the perfect summer day with the family!
- Make a delicious breakfast – Start the day off on the right foot with a hearty and nourishing breakfast spread, filled with all of your favorite items. With the room you’ll find in the kitchen of your ROSS’ affordable apartment, making eggs, bacon AND chocolate chip pancakes will actually be an enjoyable experience. (IMPORTANT REMINDER: Don’t forget the syrup!)
- Become a member of the Zoo Crew – The Smithsonian National Zoo has created an interactive family guide that only elevates the level of fun during your trip to the zoo, called Zoo Crew Training Manual. The manual comes in both English and Spanish, and is used to help grownups and children alike “learn what it takes to care for all the different animals here, many of which are endangered.” (ANOTHER IMPORTANT REMINDER: Be sure to download the printable PDF and bring it along on your memorable zoo adventure!)
- Take a trip to the Mall – We aren’t referring to your local shopping mall, rather the National Mall: a magical place filled with thousands of things to discover! To please everyone’s unique interests we suggest the following: walk to all of the monuments; head into the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum to engage in one of their 10 family-friendly events; stop in and take an up-close look at the Hope Diamond, currently on display at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. (YET ANOTHER I.R.: Make sure to take a selfie with Abraham Lincoln while you’re at the Mall!)
- Prepare a mini-sundae bar at your house – There’s nothing that ends a day with the family more perfectly than a big bowl of ice cream that each member prepares just the way they like it. It’s a sweet treat that everyone will enjoy! (AND THE MOST IMPORTANT REMINDER OF ALL: Don’t forget the cherry on top!)
Discover a place that will give you not just a summertime of enjoyable memories, but a lifetime – by taking a tour of ROSS’ affordable apartments for rent.
