MUSCATINE, Iowa — Bailey Othmer, 5, helps her younger sister Brynn, 2, swing across the monkey bars on a warm August afternoon along the Muscatine riverfront. The two, along with their father, Tim, were playing outside because Tim said there wasn't much to do inside and "its better than them watching TV." After the park, Bailey and Brynn planned to cool down at the Mississippi Mist fountain.
