Ah‭, ‬Summer‮…‬‭ ‬you look forward to it every year‭. ‬It is time to enjoy our beautiful state‭, ‬go on vacation‭, ‬welcome family to visit‭,‬‭ ‬and spend time outside‭!‬

But about a month into this summer thing your children start saying phrases you dread like‭, ‬“there is nothing to do‭,‬”‭ ‬“I’m bored‭,‬”‭ ‬and‭ ‬“we’ve already done that‭.‬”‭ ‬Well‭, ‬I am going to try to help you with a few places and things to do around our area that will hopefully give you some relief‭ ‬from those dreaded phrases‭.‬
