    Summer: Bike on the wonderful RiverLake Greenway with my kid in the Burley. Attempt to cross Hiawatha and the Light Rail without getting hit by a car, stop at A Baker’s Wife for a few donuts. Play at the park at the nearby Lake Hiawatha Park, and the wading pool. Bike up to the Minnehaha Parkway and over to Minnehaha Falls park for lunch at Sea Salt. Back on the parkway to the River Rd and home for nap! After nap head over to Hidden Falls park for a nice hike to the falls, and throwing rocks into the river before heading back home for dinner.

    Winter: Breakfast at home, sledding at the hill by the creek and 32nd Ave (or so), hot chocolate with friends, nap, and then takeout from Brasa for dinner

    Leave town. Watch the ships go under the lift bridge in Duluth, go backpacking on the Northshore, or canoeing in the Boundary Waters.
