Nobody likes to hear those words you hear this time of year.  "Oh, school starting soon...Summer almost over".  Shhhhhh, put a sock in it.  While some people are shopping for back to school clothes and supplies, this guy is glad that most of it is out of the way so we can actually enjoy the Summer.  Some guaranteed fun for kids continues to be Peter Paul Recreation Park in Rome.  Reasonably priced and you don't have to drive for hours to get there.  P.S.  Bring a towel!
