Run Wild: Saturday, July 26


If you're trying to find something for your young 'uns to do this summer, here are two activities that will keep them out of your steadily graying hair--for a while, at least.

The fourth annual Run Wild at Zoo Boise is a healthy way for ages 2-12 to expend some energy. This fun run lets kids cruise around the zoo in either a quarter-mile or 1-mile race. Registration includes breakfast for the runners, giveaways and an afterparty.

If your 5- to 12-year-olds are still bouncing off the walls, enjoy a little me time: send them to Wings Center for the Mid-Summer Sleepover, where jumping around is encouraged. Kids can climb the rock walls, swim in the pool and play gym games until it's time for pizza and a movie and then they're off to bed. They'll have so much fun, they won't even realize you sent them to the sleepover as much for yourself as for them.
