    Great ideas, Joel. We'll be doing two or three of these, I'm sure. Happy almost Father's Day!

    Thank you so much Joel. I printed out all of the activities and plan on gathering the materials and putting together little activity packages for my husband this Father's Day. I will be out of town for the weekend, so I plan on hiding them around the house so he and kids can go on a treasure hunt to find them. Thanks again, we really love your work.

    Nice roundup....zipwire looks cool...we all have a lot of fun on the big one in the park so I'm sure twanging lego men off the end of a little one would go down a treat!
