Don't let a little drizzle keep you inside
As a family with three very active boys, we spend our summer at parks and playgrounds burning off all that fantastic kid energy. Although colder weather usually means more time indoors, I learned early on in my parenting career that there’s no need to stay inside on a wet day. Whether we’re hiking on a trail with good tree cover, puddle jumping or watching a storm roll in on a beach, it’s always exhilarating to be outside. Here are some of our favorite rainy-day parks to play in, as well as the closest hot-chocolate destinations.
