Dear Washington Parents,

If school is almost finished for the year, you are probably working hard to find fun, memory-making activities for your kids’ summer.

We are here to help.

Take a look at a new list that highlights the top family-friendly events of the week. This week’s gems include the chance for kids to channel their inner Lance Armstrong, attempt to pedal a mini clown bike and have a royal-themed picture taken in a carriage that once transported the actress-turned-princess Grace Kelly.

Today we launched a weekly With the Kids e-mail newsletter (sign up here!). In addition to our top event picks for the week, it has parenting-themed stories from other areas of the Post including Tracy Grant’s Momspeak column and excerpts from Janice D’Arcy’s On Parenting blog.

So be sure to mark your calendar, lather on sunscreen, get out there and make some memories.
