If your brood is anything like mine, the first thing the kids do when they walk in the door after school is grab the iPad or the Kindle. Spring is here, kids!  The Treasure Valley has plenty of things to do outside, and we're leavin' the house.  Here are just a few ideas.

Some screen-busters that will get the kids off the iPad and outside into the spring weather, include these from TripAdvisor.

Zoo Boise

The Greenbelt

Bogus Basin

Boise Hot Air Company for a balloon ride

Boise Bicycle Tours

Idaho Mountain Touring for a bike rental

Let's hope that the rain moves out and the sun sticks around so we can get outside and fully embrace these things, and make the most of spring.  And if all of this fails, there's always Beauty and the Beast!
