Family Activities In Detroit

Lori Bremerkamp is a metro Detroit-based wordsmith, MSU alum and beer snob. When she’s not covering things in and around the D, you can find her trying to wrangle her two kids or her addiction to caffeine — usually at the same time.

Everyone tells me to enjoy my kids while they’re young. Some days that’s easier than others. But I know they’re right.

With my oldest daughter starting kindergarten in the fall, I’m realizing that I don’t have much time before she and her two-year-old sister will be making plans of their own. Or they’ll just be plain embarrassed to be seen with me.

So, in an effort to make the most of the time I have, I’ve put together a Parental Bucket List. Things in and around The D that I — and parents like me — can do with the kids before they graduate from high school.

They’re adventures that don’t take a lot of time or money — and that’s the point. It’s all about creating memories.

In the City

Around the City

I have 13 years to work on these before my oldest graduates. Doable, right?
