I know what you’re thinking. You and your kids need to get out. There’s no school today, or it’s yet another early dismissal day, or oh, boy, it’s going to be a loooong summer.
Maybe you have little ones. You haven’t had contact with the outside world for days, the toddler is bouncing off the walls, the baby has finally stopped crying, and you need adult conversation (and possibly coffee).
Maybe you’re at work all day and/or your kids are in school, and miracle of miracles, you have nothing on your to do list this weekend. Where are the best places for family fun?
Maybe you’re new in town. You don’t know anyone yet, and everyone’s a little lonely. You’ve found the grocery store and the doctor’s office, but where do you go to find fun?
Are you wondering if it’s worth the drive/time/money to get everybody fed/cleaned up/out of the house?
Or maybe you’ve been neglecting your hobbies for the past few years. Everyone has been saying that you need to take some “me” time. At last, the day has arrived, it’s “Me” day! Now…what are you going to do?
If any of the above describes you, then you’ve come to the right place!
In the past 10 years, I’ve lived in three states. Each time we moved, I loved finding the places that only the locals knew about: the ice cream shop that makes its own whipped cream, the park with the playground equipment that even adults are amazed at, the quirkiest neighborhood to take your out of town college friends shopping.
But every time I learned the “best of” each place, we would move, and I’d have to start over. Then we had kids. Three kids, in 4 1⁄2 years, born in two different states. And then we moved again.
Finding the fun is a little trickier with kids. That’s why I’m here: to help you find the fun, both with and without kids. I’ll be exploring my new corner of the world in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. We’ll check out local places, talk about exploring your own corner of the world (and beyond), and maybe actually get that “me” time.
