Last summer I made a passport full of activities to do with the kids. It was a great way to stay busy and keep track of all of the things we wanted to do over the summer. This summer I’m taking it up a notch: we will be visiting 100 parks in 2019.
I started keeping track of parks in the middle of April. Since then we have visited 45 different playgrounds. I have enjoyed exploring areas of town we usually don’t visit. I often get stuck in a rut and we do the same thing over and over, but being in different areas of town has led to fun discoveries (granted, most of the discoveries are lunch places).
Ideally we will finish our quest by the middle of October. I’ll write up a recap when we reach 100 parks, but until then, if you are looking for a playground in the Des Moines area or as a good stop between Des Moines and St. Louis let me know. I’m happy to share my opinion (clearly, as I am a blogger).
