We live a few blocks from the Pacific National Exhibition grounds, which are home to Playland. Playland is an amusement park that's open from Easter until Hallowe'en. I guess I should consider us lucky that Marc made it to six years old before he figured out that he should be able to ask for a trip to Playland whenever he wants. We negotiated once a month as a compromise. The season's pass for a kid Marc's age isn't that expensive, but there's no season's pass for the guardian. That's where it's going to get expensive.
