Life seems to get crazier and busier as children grow. Doesn’t it? But I do have to say it is easier to find things to do with your children as they get older and there are more activities in this area for older kids. I still envy my friends that live in areas with Gymborees (the play kind, not the clothing store) or who have party houses that soley cater children’s themed parties. Regardless, the Mahoning Valley has been busy with activities and I’ve been lucky enough to take my 3 year old daughter to some.
