Daily Adventures June 13-17, 2011

It's summer in the Twin Cities!  If you're like me, that means that you've got lots of extra time to spend with your little buddies.  But these endless summer days can seem a little daunting when you're on Daddy or Mommy Duty 24/7 with nothing to do.

Never fear!  What Do I Do Now? is here!  I strive to have at least one "adventure" every day during the summer.  It breaks up the monotony, and keeps my boys from resorting to unauthorized erosion experiments with the hose in the back yard. 

So here's the scoop:  I'm going to list my planned Daily Adventures for the week here.  You could do exactly what we're doing when we do it.  We might even end up having our own flash mob if we work on our dance moves a bit.  But, more likely, you can check back here when you're not sure what to do and your children are using the phone cable as a zip line.

Now, without further ado, here is the What Do I Do Now? list of Daily Adventures for the week of June 13:

Monday, June 13  There's a free Kids Camp going on all week at Sibley Park (40th Street E. and 19th Ave. S.) hosted by Ebenezer Lutheran Brethren Church.  It runs from 9 to 11:30 am every day this week.  Kids Camp Website

Tuesday, June 14  I think Tuesday is going to be bowling day for us this summer.  Kids can bowl for free all summer at Flaherty's Arden Bowl if you register at KidsBowlFree.com.  Up to four adults can bowl all summer too for a one-time fee of $24.95.  Each person pays $2.50 every time for shoe rental, however.  Don't forget to print the coupons that will be sent to your email!

Wednesday, June 15  There are all sorts of free things happening in downtown St. Paul today.  There is a tour of the buildings surrounding Rice Park at 10 am, a bluegrass concert given by Blue Wolf in the Landmark Center from noon to 1 pm, and the Nature Valley Bike Festival with another concert by Joey Ryan and the Inks begins at 4:30 pm.  If you want to take the tour, call 651-292-3276 to reserve a spot.  Landmark Center Events.

Thursday, June 16  Centennial Lakes Park hosts the Brodini Magic Comedy Show today at noon as well as a farmer's market every Thursday from 3-7 pm.

Friday, June 17  Midwest Mountaineering has a Bouldering Cave that kids and adults can climb in for free any time there aren't classes being held.  No ropes are necessary because it's more of a cave (it's in the basement) and it's got a cushy floor.  All you need to do is fill out a waiver that is valid for one year.  Then put on your wristband and climb!

 Have fun and see you next week!
