As a parent how many times do you hear your children say, "I'm bored."

When you and I were kids the answer we heard the most was, "Go play in the street" or go fly a kite!"  Not that easy to do anymore, at least for one of those.

Here in Sioux Falls when those words jump out of those little mouths you only have to reach for the Sioux Falls Parks and Recreation Activities Guide.

From toddlers to seniors, this year's summer guide is packed with hundreds of answers to "I'm bored!"

The one that caught my eye was the Youth Triathlon.  First of all, kids have so much energy this would be ideal.  Now, I know it doesn't happen all summer long, but they can be training up the Friday, August 5 events.

There are five different age levels of competition from 6 to 18.  Events include swimming, biking and running and distances are determined by their age.

No time to waste.
