Best of local kid stuff

See Dick. See Jane. See Jane see Dick. See Dick and Jane embark on a charming romantic courtship, the ultimate result of which is a houseful of miniature Dicks and Janes--all running around hollering for something to do! See Dick and Jane pull their hair out, along with Samantha and Bill, Frank and Bert (who are raising Bert's kids from his first marriage to Emily, who visits on weekends when she's not in the Alaskan wilds doing her graduate work), and Josephine and Samantha (who adopted one child and conceived the other through a generous donation from Bill, who was only too happy to help). See everyone run out to their minivans. Run, everybody, run! Take those kids bumper-bowling or lake-swimming or frog-hunting or museum-hopping. Take them puddle-skipping or star-gazing or duck-feeding or whatever. Just take them. See Dick smile. See Jane smile. See all the happy children smile. See the following kid-pleasing activities.
