Fourth of July Fireworks in Herndon and Reston plus Animals at Kidwell Farm What is close to Herndon and to Reston? Try Lake Fairfax in Reston. Lie on the slope above the lake and watch the lights reflecting in the water. Eat. We took our then 2 year old daughter  to Lake Fairfax fireworks for the first time 20 years ago. She screamed the whole time once they started.    We ended up in the car for the remainder, trying to comfort her.                 5 years later her younger sister made the scene  at about the same age. With  much trepidation we waited for the first BANG. This child laughed for 15 minutes and then fell asleep. That pretty much has defined their personality differences for the last 15 years.     (Go to the fireworks early and visit this cow. She is lonely as you can see...

Are you looking for a home at a bargain price that could benefit from some loving care?   You might want to cast your eyes on the homes which are available as foreclosed or short sales in Herndon Virginia ... I've put together a link to a list of homes which are offered by their owners for less than their current mortgages or have already been foreclosed by Lenders on the resale market on a 1st come,1st served basis.  You need a Realtor to show them and help you through the process ... And Yes, they've already factored in the Realtor cost so you can get the sort of help you'll need to land one of these bargains.  Visit www.reston-area.com/forsale.htm and  look to the links at mid-page for Foreclosed and Short Sale Homes.

The inventory of Condos for sale in Herndon was 114 homes active on the market as of 1 July 2010.  Condos sales have really picked up in the Hernon area. They seem to fly off the market and average less than a month's worth of inventory so far this year.  If you've been hanging back, this might be the moment to re-start your shopping.  Visit Available Herndon Homes at http://www.reston-condos.com/forsale.htm  to view currently available condos in Herndon Virginia.

Homes for sale in Bradley Farm and Bradley Acres Janet: Do I live in Bradley Acres or Bradley Farm. Steve: Well Janet, the sign at the entrance to your community says Bradley Farm. You have a Bradley Farm Home Owners Association and a Bradley Farm Swim team. However, the LEGAL name on your real estate tax record says Bradley Acres and when real estate agents put your home on the internet MLS, you enter as Bradley Acres....soooo you actually live in both. By either name it is a great place to live. Sam: I may want to sell my house in Bradley Farm in the months ahead. It is an awesome community, but it looks like I will be relocating to Huntsville AL soon.  I was wondering if you could post a monthly report that will show homes that have sold here the last 18 months?

Sugarland Heights: Midway between the towns of Sterling and Reston, at the northern edge of Herndon, in Fairfax County, Virginia, lies Sugarland Heights.  It is an older neighborhood built in 1960s featuring mostly rambler-style homes on quarter-acre lots.  While modest in size, the houses here are well kept by their owners, and the area is attractive.  Herndon is convenient to the Dulles International Airport and George Mason University.  Several hospitals are close.  The town itself offers restaurants and shopping. Sugarland Heights is bonded roughly on the north by Wiehle Avenue, the east by Route 7100 (Fairfax Parkway), the south by Elden Street, and the west by Herndon Parkway.

My daughter walked across the stage at the George Mason Patriot Center today and accepted her high school diploma from Herndon High School. The grads were made up of students from both Herndon and Reston, Virginia. It was a special moment for our family and all of the other families who had a graduate cross the stage. We spent the weekend going from party to party celebrating these young people and the completion of this phase of their lives. An astounding number of these graduates will go on to College, so this is not about celebrating the 'glory days' of their youth. It is truly about gathering these kids, and their families, who have been so interwoven in each others lives for  4 years  and enjoying each others company. I was thinking about why, at least in this community, the high ...

Reupholstery and Drapery Work Room near Reston and Herndon  Reupholstery and window treatments in Reston and Herndon     John: I need to get a sofa recovered and my draperies were installed in 1989. Do you know any good place near Reston and Herndon that can do reupholstery and custom window treatments? Steve: John, you should check out  The Upholstery Shop in downtown Herndon.

Don't fail your children. Be responsible. Make sure they can swim really cool looking. Tom: I have never been to a swim team practice and neither has my boy Marvin. What can I expect when he starts swimming with the Chantilly Highlands Dolphins? Steve the Answerman: First thing Tom, always have Marvin in his suit when he leaves the house whether you are going to a meet or practice. This will save you a lot of trouble. Nothing is more irritating than getting to an away meet and finding no suit in the swim bag. We once went to meet at Penn State, arriving at 9:00 PM; discovered no suit(we took our daughter's guarantee that there was a suit in the bag. "What could we possibly be thinking to even ask her such a question. What did we think she was? A slacker idiot?") for a 7:00 AM warm up. ...
