Let’s face it, as parents we tend to do activities that revolve around the kids. Yes, there are the few occasions when someone offers to babysit or you decide to get a babysitter for the night. All other times, going out means going out with the kids. I don’t believe in catering to kids and asking “where do you want to go?!”… because questions like that are attached to answers like “McDonalds!” or “Chuck-E-Cheese”, and if you have the nerve to ask a five year old that question, you probably deserve that answer.
Don’t get me wrong, I like taking the kids out for a good time. However, regardless of where we are going, I like to know that there will also be something enjoyable for us parents. If that enjoyable means good food, that’s all I need!
So the first on my list of things to do with kids that are still enjoyable for parents:
