Are We There Yet? (April 2011)
When my kids were very young, they had big dreams.
My son wanted to be a baseball player. Or a basketball player, depending on the season.
My daughter was an interesting mix. Her choices ranged from ballerina-princess to machine-maker.
We’ve got an egg-stra big weekend of activities, with more Easter egg hunts than you can possibly attend. Plus Thomas the Tank Engine, “Toy Story” and (free!) Illini spring football. So get hoppin’!
Let’s start with the egg hunts:
— Eggstravaganza! 11 a.m. Saturday, West Side Park, Champaign. Free.
Whew! Prepare for the busiest weekend in months as C-U celebrates the Boneyard Arts Festival, Brain Awareness Day at the children’s museum and Moms Weekend on campus. Music, art, theater and science to boot!
Boneyard Arts Festival: Friday through Sunday, downtown Champaign, downtown Urbana and venues throughout the county. Most events free.
