    Great ideas! Our favorite summer (spring – fall) activity is camping out, either in our backyard, a friend’s backyard, or somewhere else. It is a wonderful way to “get away” from the busyness of life, even for just one evening.

    Also – some bowling alleys are offering Kids Bowl Free days. I think the site is http://www.kidsbowlfree.com.
    Leaving some love! Great great site!

    Thank you for the suggestions on how we can still have some good summer fun without “breaking the bank”. My husband has been gone now for 2 years–the grandkids meant the world to him. So I appreciate these ideas I can use to keep them close and still entertain them.

    Going to a farm for a “pick your own” day is another fun and inexpensive way to entertain the whole family. Peaches, strawberries, and blueberries are coming into season starting this month!

    I love #2. I explore the local regional park trails w/my girlfriends to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy some peaceful nature time. And on a hot day, some of those trails have huge trees making the paths shaded and cool. An occasional stream to dip our hands in & cool off is an added bonus! Don’t forget to bring water.

    These are fantastic ideas! They are great ways to keep a family close, under budget and having fun all summer! I may not have kids, but I think I might get my boyfriend to do some of these activities with me. Thanks for the ideas!!

    I love the homemade slip & slide!

    We spent a 1/2 hour outside last night catching fireflies….one of the fun things about summer!
