John’s comment: I love the mix of “city” things, such as the Zoo, Children’s Museum, Goodman Pool and so on, being right in the same area as numerous parks, rivers and lakes, and just more “nature” stuffs in general. It keeps our options so open depending on weather, season, mood. etc.

Thanks again to all of you for reading and commenting, and thanks to all the local businesses that donated items for our giveaways: Atlas Improv Company, Bloom Bake Shop, Capitol Kids, Daisy Cafe & Cupcakery, Happy Bambino, Liliana’s Restaurant, Madison Children’s Museum, Nicki’s Diapers, Overture Center for the Arts.
