Because we're studying rivers and oceans this year, I selected a park not too far from home with views of a creek and a paved path -- very nice for the toddler in the stroller. (Yes, I realize I could put him in a carrier, but he weighs 25 pounds and I have to be nimble enough to chase the three year old.)
We had a lovely walk, though my children were much more interested in taking pictures with my camera (not of the creek, mind you) or asking when we'd have our snack than just about anything else. Still, I think it was a worthwhile trip and we'll be visiting on a regular basis over the course of our school year.
