passport to adventure


Show kids how rewarding it can be to spend time in the outdoors by signing them up for REI’s Passport to Adventure.

Print out an adventure journal to document hikes, bike rides, and other fun outdoor activities.

You can then submit the journal for a special prize – binoculars that turn into other cool tools including a compass, signal mirror, magnifying glass and more!

great wolf lodge giveaway


Surviving The Stores is giving away a fantastic one-night stay at the Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, TX. We’ve talked about visiting sometime before the end of the year, so I would be thrilled to win!

The winner will be chosen at 9:00 pm CST on Tuesday, June 9th. If you live in the DFW area, what are you waiting for? Go enter!!

wfmw – search for free attractions


This week’s Works-For-Me Wednesday has a fun “Mom, I’m Bored” theme.

I found a really great site for finding all of the FREE activities in your area. You can search the database for museums, parks, concerts, parades, festivals and zoo. Take a look and see what’s happening in your neck of the woods.

Oh, and if you have a Bass Pro Shop nearby, check out their free Family Summer Camp.

Run on over to We Are That Family for tons of great summer boredom-busters!

Our recent move put us about 5 minutes from a Bass Pro Shop, so I was excited to receive a flyer in the mail today for their Family Summer Camp.
