  • The zoo/aquarium during the week is generally always quiet. We spend hours there.

  • I almost didn't want to mention this because I don't know if grass falls under smooshy, but the gardens are a great place to relax and smell as well. oh and Giant balls! those are awesome to roll and throw back and forth.

  • Coloring, feed ducks at local park, stacking pots and pans and tupperwear dishes, marbels(larger ones he can't choke on), a midday movie(no ppl during the day, and if you want I can PM you a list of free kid movies showing at Rave Theaters nationwide this summer, like 20 free movie total)
