<p>Hi! I'm from Knoxville, but have lived in Seattle for 10 years, during which time I've produced three kids. We're going to be in Knoxville to visit elderly relatives for about nine days later this month. I haven't been home during the winter since the kids were born, and I'm interested to hear suggestions on indoor (or worth-braving-the-cold outdoor) fun from the Mothering mamas in the area. Where do you take them these days? The kids are just-turned-8, almost-5, and just-turned-2.</p>

<p>Also, is there any Knoxville grocery store you know of that sells Larabars? Best diaper-bag snack/candy substitute ever. <img alt="yummy.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/yummy.gif"></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thanks!</p>

<p>EarthFare sells Larabars. There's a location in Bearden and at Turkey Creek in Farragut.</p>
<p>My 3 yr old is pretty obsessed with those inflatables, so he loves the Bounce House or Bounce USA or Pump it Up. I like that he burns off some of his energy. He is a high energy kid!</p>

<p>If you're out on the west side, there's a great kid's gym called Tataru's off Lovell Road, on the north side of 40.  They have big pits full of foam squares to swing into, and all kinds of gymnastics equipment - we just discovered it a few weeks ago.  They have open play nearly every day, I think, from 9-1 or so, for just $5/hr.  My almost-5 and 10-month-old both love it.</p>

<p>Tataru's rocks, we had DD's birthday party there, with kids spanning the ages of yours!</p>

<p>Also, ice skating at the ice chalet.  They even have "skate aids" which are like walkers for the little ones.  Honestly I'm always so busy, I rarely have time to think about what else we should do.  The Knoxville zoo is nice and participates in the reciprocal zoo entry program, so if you're a member at your zoo and they participate, you get in free or half price depending.  they also have an indoor area that's lots of fun. </p>

<p>Earth Fare has all your natural food needs, and I think Kroger also carries Larabars, pretty sure I've seen them there.</p>
