SAVE MY SANITY! This weekend I have my kids and THREE EXTRA CHILDREN! Ages 1 to 10 years old. It is COLD POURING RAIN OUTSIDE. **sobs** They have way too much pent up energy to stay here much longer. Where can I take them so they can burn off energy and stop driving me INSANE!?!?!?!”

  • The one year old weighs 30 pounds. He is way too big to be carried and way too active for bowling! He would run down the lanes. Besides, the other kids hate bowling! And the baby would NEVER sit for a movie.

  • Is there an Arcade nearby? You can hold the one-year-old. Go to the Mall of America and play on the rides. Indoor waterpark nearby? Go see Ratatouille or Underdog at the movies. Go Bowling! Have them put bumpers on the lanes. McDonald's with indoor playland?
