So I blogged about doing the DCR Park Passport program a few days ago. My kids are on a mission to get the stamps in all the Boston Region to earn their free t-shirt. I have to say - it's pretty cool so far. Although we have spent some gas and time getting to some places - it's been a real motivator to get out there and check some new places out.
We currently have knocked out 5 places and have 10 more to go. I think we can do it this summer.
If you decide to embark on this pretty cool adventure - just be sure to pack a backpack with snacks and water. My kids are really into the "hiking" and "exploring" part - which is nice and stuff, but honestly, I'm not really a crunchy, "let's go on a hike" type of person. I guess I'm becoming one of them - but I refuse - REFUSE to start packing granola. That's just too crunchy for me.
