I've added a new link on my site for a fun contest/ program called the 50 days of summer. Take a look at it and you can win a $50 gift certificate to Wonder Brains! Here's the link to the post: http://www.wonderbrains.com/weblog/2008/06/wonderbrains-summer-giveaway.html#more-255
It is a perfect compliment to my July focus - "Have fun with the kids" It's also just a great resource for things to do with your kids that are low cost or free.
Last night we went to our local farm and picked strawberries - it was the last day of the season, so we only got six containers (about a lb. each). It was fun - my DS came out with a red face and hands! We gave two containers to my mom, I froze one container, and I'm planning on making some homemade strawberry ice cream for dessert tonight! The rest we'll just eat - it's amazing how much better fresh, just picked strawberries are than the ones from the grocery shipped from California! The cost was about the same as regular (not organic) strawberries on sale!
I've been thinking about new things to post and thought I might start a series on frugal family travel - we travel a lot, and if I didn't know how to do it cheaply, we couldn't go - any thoughts or comments on whether this would be interesting would be appreciated.
