There's the Grinch. There's Rudolph. And there's The Polar Express. Like other beloved holiday movie classics that are adapted from children's books, watching this 2004 film starring Tom Hanks (based off of the Caldecott-winning story by Chris Van Allsburg) has become a holiday family tradition.
Imagine your kids’ surprise when you tell them this Friday night, "Go get your swimsuits on! We're going to the pool!" They might think you're crazy, but chances are they'll also think you're awesome.
With the crazy cold temperatures that have been freezing up the Metro over the last few weeks, it is more than tempting to daydream back to July of this year and try to remember what it was like to lay around at the pool.
