Playtime (child's play for grownups)

Your schedule in a rut? Here’s a question for you…

When was the last time you PLAYED on a playground? Ran across a field of grass just for the fun of it – not because it would raise your heart rate? Played on the swings? Climbed the monkey bars? Didn’t care if your sneakers got dirty?
