What a great, great, great way to get the kids outside and spend quality time together.Ã?Â Personally I don’t think nearly enough kids spend time in the great outdoors these days. Frankly, I don’t think staying inside playing games 24/7 is doing them any favors.Ã?Â I LOVE events like this that encourage family fun while exposing kids to the fun and wonders of the great outdoors.
