GRANDPARENTS DAY TODAY
Today is National Grandparents Day, which along with Second Cousin Twice Removed Day, will be widely ignored—sigh. But, those lucky enough to have grandparents should send greetings. A text will do or better yet a phone call. It doesn’t take much to brighten the day of a senior, especially if it is a rembrance from family.
Because so many happy memories between grand kids and parents happen in playgrounds. Here’s a look at a great kid friendly zone. Fans of Thomas the Tank Engine will love navigating Singapore’s Tiong Bahru Park Adventure Playground, where a tilted train looks like it’s headed off the rails. After steering the runaway locomotive to safety, kids can explore a mini maze and take an old-school merry-go-round.
OK, so Singapore is a bit of a stretch—here are fun playgrounds from around the world to share with the kids: http://www.travelandleisure.com/slideshows/worlds-coolest-playgrounds/7
