Sometimes finding things to do with your family is half the battle. We have resorted to online visitor guides, local magazines, and even newspaper calendars. Being that we just are not familiar with the activities that about us in our new home, we have to really be on the look out for things to do. A few weeks ago, DH found one right up our alley - The Big MOE, otherwise known as the Massachusetts Outdoor Expo. It was a rainy day, but that did not curb our excitement. When we got home from church, we changed our clothes, donned some rain gear and headed out. We were treated to views of birds of prey
DS had an opportunity to throw an axe (gee, I wonder what is going in my backyard next)
DD got to test ride a mountain bike
The men built a bird house
And DH got plenty of ideas for boy scout lashing projects
So the next time you are looking for a fun family afternoon, pull out you newspaper and check the calendar of events. There is usually something interesting going on in your backyard almost every day.
