  • If the weather is nice, we spend a lot of time at the park. On rainy days, we usually watch movies or play wii.

  • We find alot of things to do free in town. Like last weekend we had a butterfly festival and there were street vendors, slides, bounce houses, face painting, popcorn, drinks and all of it was 100% free. We also have drive ins, where the towns shut down main streets and let ppl drive in their classic or cars they have all supped up. We have free movies in the summer twice a week, and do restaurant where dinners free for kids.
    At home we swim, we have a trampoline, we garden, we read, watch dvds, cook, bake, and of course walk the dogs.

  • I used to put em in a cage and squirt em with a water bottle - that was fun.

    Nah, not really.... we played chess, othello and played poker a lot - and loved to "wrassle" (yeah, it's a word - just not a proper one). I played with them, rode bikes with them, played ball, (we used to play Marching Band - even the neighbors would join in on that one - LOL) I had boys so using the hoe to cut roads in the dirt and play with cars and dump trucks and what-not was a big time filler in the summer time. We would get scrap wood and build stuff, take their toy trucks to the park and race em down the amphitheater hill - cracked up a bunch of Tonka dump trucks doing that. LOL I raised boys - there was never a dull moment. I think I was still climbing trees and hanging up side down from ropes when I was 30 year sold just playing with them.
    Let them make up the game and the rules and you can play all day.
