No Tears!

Bob’s first official Easter Bunny photo and no tears from him or big sister.
In fact.. I think she thinks people were there to take pictures with her.

The Golden Egg

One of our family’s favorite holidays is Easter.  We got the kids together for some old fashion Easter photos. We’ll see how they do when they meet Mr. Easter Bunny!  Adora is 3… and no longer scared of Santa so this gives me hope.

Egg hunt and marshamallow harvest

Great Country Farms did it again! Another beautiful weekend for an old fashion egg hunt and peeps marshmallow harvest! Adora had a great time looking for eggs. Bob got to meet the Easter Bunny for the first time. We roasted marshmallows and hitched a ride on the cow train. This is such a fun family tradition! The farm is now open daily 10am-5pm in April. If you missed the egg hunt.. the Strawberry Jubilee in May is always really fun and worth the drive.

Leukemia Ball Raises $3 Million

WHOA! What a monster night of giving. It was incredible to see the best of our community at work. Supporters of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society showed up Saturday night ready to give. They exceeded our expectations helping raise more than $3 million dollars to fund the fight against blood cancer.
A touching part of the night.. when Redskins Hall of Famer Bobby Mitchell was honored and revealed he just lost his best friend to the disease. I think there were tears in just about everybody’s eyes. We also met the sweet patient ambassadors Logan, Tyler and Brianna. These children remind us there is hope for a cure.. not someday but today.
Special shout out to my co-emcees Comcast SportsNet’s Julie Donaldson, FOX5′s Sarah Simmons and ABC7′s Eileen Whelan. It was an honor to share the stage with such grounded and generous women in our biz. It was pretty cool to see some of our peacock family in the house too– thanks Dianna and Vance!
Comedian Ryan Hamilton was very funny… and what can I say about Huey Lewis and the News. It was obvious with the standing room– the heart of rock’n'roll had arrived at the Washington Convention Center that night. If you came out to support or have ever made a donation to LLS… thank you.

Sweet taste of Spring

Families get a sweet taste of Spring while helping others! Dozens of parents and their kids gathered at Wildfire Restaurant  at Tysons Galleria for a Spring Cookie Making and Decorating Class benefiting a good cause.  Adora helped me with the hosting duties. The interactive playdate was led by Executive Chef Eddie Ishaq who showed the kids how to make cookies. The children then took on the fun duty of decorating. Congratulations to our top decorators Elsa, Elizabeth and Zachariah! A portion of the proceeds went to Food for Others the largest distributor of free food serving people in Northern Virginia!

Operation Convert (to twitter)

So I had a really great time visiting with resident of Riderwood in Silver Spring this week. I was invited to come and speak about how social media is changing and shaping news. I talked about how we use these new tools to help tell stories and add new dimensions. I also tried to drive home how it’s important it is for our viewers to get on board. Now more than ever you have a voice in what we cover and how we cover it. Journalism is no longer a one way street. A man named Bob asked me why we never report on all this growing petitions online that seem newsworthy. It was the perfect question because in the last week someone tweeted me a link to a white house petition.. I sent it to producers and we ended up using it on-air during our show. I also told them how cool their grandkids would think it was if they saw gramps on twitter :) Overall it was a lovely experience and I’ve since learned their computer lab is going to host a twitter “how to” class to show residents how to tweet! I LOVE THIS STUFF!

 

Jewels of Asia

It was a night that sparkled! The Asian American Chamber of Commerce held it’s annual business awards and this year the theme was “Jewels of Asia”. It was a wonderful way to honor Asian American business leaders who have made contributions to our community. A big group of local leaders attended including Fairfax County Sheriff Stacey Kincaid and Fairfax County Supervisor Sharon Bulova. I was honored to emcee an event that really makes me proud. Shout out to Grace Han Wolf and Jenet Ahn for putting together another successful show! Photos by Joey Darley.

 

ARMY Mom Strong

Anyone who’s had a baby knows just how tough it can be to get back in shape. Imagine having to have to take a physical fitness test and meet a weight requirement 6 months after delivery! It’s the reality for the brave women in our military. The good news.. there’s a unique program that is helping pregnant soldiers stay fit physically and emotionally. Tune in for my story from Fort Meade Maryland this evening. It airs on News4 at 4 after Ellen!

Cybercivility Task Force Deadline

Parents.. today is the deadline to apply to be on Montgomery County Public Schools new cyber civility task force. Superintendent Joshua Starr created the campaign after getting threatening tweets from parents and students for his recent snow day decisions.
Starr hopes the campaign will open up talks between about civility on social media sites like twitter. In December Starr wrote a letter to parents saying many of the tweets directed towards him and his family were offensive and disturbing. School staff even reported them to the school systems security team.
As for interest in this new effort.. we checked and it looks like 150 people have signed up so far. If you’re interested apply on the MCPS Website. You have until 5PM today.
@317PMQ weighed in this mornings saying it’s important to to talk about what you post online with your kids saying “it starts at home, talk to your children & parents need passwords.”
