Check out our fall activity list and let me know if you have other things you would add to it. Keep in mind these are EASY places to take kids where they have freedom to run around, and there is usually some place for me to sit down. Both crucial at this point in the game.
I want to answer some of your most frequently asked questions as best I can, from both what I have learned from other entrepreneurs and my own experience in owning a business.
