    Hi Fanatics-

    We're going to be visiting Des Moines and Ames from out of state for the week between Xmas and New Year's. Any ideas for things to do with an 18mo while we're in town? Days will be pretty long if we're just hanging out at my Mom's house all day for a week.

    Thanks!

    Eric

    Tell him to get a job. He's 18 for crying out loud!

    Butterfly House at Reiman Gardens in Ames. Your mom would like that too.

    Food service hides the trays. Otherwise you could take him "sledding."

    Does he like to drink? If so I recommend Liars Club, 101 lounge, Mickeys or Uncle Bucks. Solid drinks and a lot of tail to choose from. He should love it.

    No thanks necessary.

    Wildlife spotting in the country. If you have a gun shoot some Coyotes while you're at it.

    If you go to the top floor of the towers and look east, you might be able to see Iowa City imploding. That's always fun.

    Tough age to do adult stuff. My youngest is now 4 and my wife and I are just getting back to the stage where we can get a sitter and feel comfortable going out for a long night on the town. That's okay though. The kids are a lot fun when they're little and those days will pass fast enough.

    Put him to bed, and play slap and tickle with his mom. No wait that's how you get him a little sibling to play with.
