Family Fun, Cheap and Easy
One of the nice perks of living in University City is, as the name suggests, being near a big university in a big city. Tangibly, it makes the dilemma, "What should we do on a weekend evening" a pretty easy one to solve: walk down the street, let the kids putter through the Penn campus, dine outside at a reasonably priced restaurant, and retrace our steps home. No car needed, less than 25 bucks expended, fresh air and exercise obtained.
If only the company wasn't so crabby: Amy and I were both pretty tired, Jada was her typical sassy self, and Aaron seemed ever on the verge of yet another spectacular tantrum. Given all that, I guess it's all the more to be glad for a family outing option that's that cheap and easy.
