I don't keep a running tab, besides that with the boat and putting gas in it every weekend I am pretty sure I don't want to know LOL!

My girls are grown, however when they were younger, every saturday we went to breakfast, then shopping, usually a movie and then lunch.  I did this for about 10 years.  I'd say, average, each week I'd spend 300-400.  They worked hard in school, sports, and at home doing chores.  I didn't mind rewarding them.

Depends on the week...but somewhere between 30-40 per kid...we do a lot of inexpensive activities like movies in the park.

It depends, usually about 10-20 dollars. They are only little and don't really want to do much other than play, go to the park, beach etc. we went to the movies at the weekend which was 7.50 each but that's a one off.

Not a lot. I have 4 kids so it gets pricey if we go out to do things. Most weeks we just hang at home and swim, play games, and sing and have a dance party (our fave). Those are all free.

Nothing really. We don't have really anything here for entertainment and with our schedules (mine and bf) its hard to do stuff. But we went to see madagascar the other weekend and he is is signed up for 2 week day camp at the pool and we will be going to go see ice age and we have a fun family trip at the end of august. We spend time together that's all that matters

This, but my kids are 2 and 4.5. They're happy running around and playing in the dirt.

We do have a membership to the aquarium.
