How’s this for a little feel-good magic?

Caine’s Arcade

Is that not the coolest thing ever?  My boys are wowed … and inspired! I’m sending them out to the backyard with some boxes and duct tape tomorrow. And I hope hundreds of thousands of other parents are too.

I guess we’ll have to add that cardboard arcade in east L.A. to our list of Must-Visit places with the kids.  Along with Breadan’s current obsession, Laura Ingalls Wilder’s home and museum in Mansfield, Missouri. (What can I say? He’s well-rounded.)
