One thing that I do not like much about where we live is that there is really nowhere to go* - although my parents are great at thinking of odd little outings for the kids, like when they took The Boy away for a while on Monday to help a Mennonite man finish building a buggy.

(* well, there ARE, but they're all very nature-y.)

Building a buggy sounds wonderful--my L. would have loved that, I think. When we lived in upstate NY there were so many outdoor things we could do in summer because it was never humid and never buggy. Here I find I really have to wrack my brains to figure our cool and acceptable wys to keep the children entertained.
