There is a nature trail through the woods near the game park on the north side of town. It has a board walk through the prairie and little signs that talk about different types of trees in the woods.
One day a mom took a crabby, teething baby, a little girl and a tiger on a walk through the woods so the Dad could have 30 minutes of peace and quiet while he prepared dinner. The girl and the tiger loved the walk, but the teething baby just cried. And cried. And cried.
When the mom reached the end of the trail and began to head home for supper, the girl and the tiger cried and cried and cried. When the mom got them, sweating and huffing, strapped into the car, she plugged her ears, took a deep breath and cried and cried and cried. Then she drove home.
**I would recommend this outing when you and your kids are in a good mood.
