    Love your list! I saw something in a parenting magazine somewhere and thought you’d love it. They had a list of things they wanted to do locally instead of taking an expensive vacation somewhere.

    So every week they’d pack the kids in the car and go on a “mystery trip.” Sometimes it was just to go get ice cream. Other times it was a big amusement park or one of the big local attractions. Sometimes it was meeting friends at the park. It didn’t matter. It was a mystery and that was half the excitement. We’ve started doing this with Owen (so far 2x to get ice cream–you see where our priorities lie, once to the Natural History Museum, and 1 to a store to get something he wanted. WE have some more exciting ones planned for the summer.) It’s a blast! Thought I’d pass it on.
