Where do you take your kids?

Is there a kids playground or activity center that you take your kids to?

We have NOTHING around here so I settle for the McDonalds playroom even though I HATE it. And my son LOVES the playground inside the mall, he can run around and climb on the foam things they have and he loves it, but the mall is an hour away.

We don't have a Gymboree or anything here, so where do you take your kids?

 We have a really cute park in our town, but there are also a lot of them in near by towns.  We have a zoo that cost a lot less if you are a resident in the town (and they have a park outside) and we go and feed the ducks at the near by pond.

We have a lot of really nice parks so we go there on the weekends, also we have really nice libraries for kids and Zoey loves to read, so we go there a lot to. I would check out your local libraries. They have children's programs as well.

yea we play in our yard everyday its nice and i only take them to the park about once a week, but we also live in a private comunitty that surronds a lake so we have 3 beachs to so during the summer we go to the beach a few times to, but is such a pain in the ass to get all the stuff just to take 2 kids out for awhile lol thats why i love our yard! :)

We take them places all the time. McDonald's play place is my favorite place because my daughter ALWAYS falls asleep on the ride home from playing so much lol. There is a park right on my street, we go almost every day. Sometimes we take her to a bigger park about 15 min (driving) away, where there are always tons of kids, and a little pond with geese. Theres also a beautiful one up in a country area nearby with a bunch of teeter totters and a huge sliding board gym type thing. She loves it there. We walk around the block and go on "bunny hunts" (there are a lot of rabbits around here for some reason). We are always outside enjoying the nice weather! Too bad I hate the cold though... we are inside almost all winter :S

My problem is that we are in Colorado, so it's great to go to parks and stuff in summer, and trust me we do that ALOT, but in winter it is wayyyyy to cold to be playing outside. :(

We only have a park close by and my DD is still too small for most of that. I wish I could help.
