Summer vacation is officially here. The kids are always so excited about summer vacation, then two weeks in they are bored! So what is a parent supposed to do when the kids are bored? If you have older children, crafts and games don’t always work. The kids want to get out and go places! Getting out and going places can get expensive. So what is a parent supposed to do? Here are some tips on places your kids can go without costing you an arm and a leg.
Places to go With Kids This Summer
Bowling is a great option for kids of all ages. Bowling will help them beat the summer heat and keep them entertained for long periods at a time. Some bowling alleys offer summer discounts during certain times of the day. Call your local bowling alley and see if this is something they are offering.
Public Swimming Pool
If you are have a public swimming pool in your area this is a great option for kids. Normally, a public swimming pool does not cost much and can provide hours of entertainment. Some public swimming pools offering a discount on certain days or hours. You might also considering getting a family pass for the summer. Getting a family or season pass could provide you with a huge discount over paying per day.
If you have teens you could drop them off for a matinée movie while you get some much-needed mom time! There is usually always something playing at the theaters that will interest a teen. Going to a matinée show can sometimes give you a discount of up to 50% off the normal rate.
Check with your local YMCA or Rec center to see if they are offering any summer camps that might interest your child. Be aware that this option is not always the most affordable. Ask about discounts or scholarships before enrolling your child. Also be sure to ask if lunch or snacks are provided.
Going to an amusement park or local fair is always fun for kids. The price of admission, parking, food, games and souvenirs can add up quickly. Check with your local Chamber of Commerce, Costco or fast food restaurant about discount tickets. Another option is to check the back of soda cans, sometimes you will find discounts on them. Sometimes it is worth looking into a season pass.
If these places to go with kids this summer bore your kids, just ask them what they want to do. Chances are they have ideas and have been thinking them up for several weeks now.

My sister and I rented a garden plot this year so we could share the bounty. Well, she hasn’t had time to take care of the weeds and they have taken over the plot. I have to admit when I got there I was a little overwhelmed but 3 hours later and we had some progress.
We need more plants. Can you suggest your favorites?
You’ve heard of amethyst, but have you heard of green amethyst? What about pink topaz or smokey quartz? While stones like these may not be the most familiar picks, they shouldn’t be missed! Semiprecious gemstones that aren’t quite household names can provide a wide range of eye-catching and sophisticated looks to unique gemstone rings at relatively low prices. Here are five money-saving gemstones that are a little of the beaten path, but more than worth taking a look at.
The brightest gemstone of this bunch, pink topaz is next to impossible to ignore. With a vibrant pink sparkle, this stone is simultaneously ladylike and sophisticated, and it has a fun-loving personality that allows it to give a wide range of rings a fresh pop of personality. The bright hue of this gem seems to capture the essence of girlhood dreams and render it completely grown up, while leaving its sense of wonder intact.
The name of this understated gemstone is a fitting description of its soft glittering hue. Like curls of smoke rising from an autumn campfire, the grayish brown glimmer of this stone is subdued yet captivating, and is possess a sense of class that’s hard to deny. This versatile stone is incredibly sophisticated and its one-of-a-kind hue complements warm and cool colors alike.
At first glance, white topaz may be mistaken for a diamond; however, while this gem is an excellent stand-in for the classic colorless stone, it’s not just a diamond alternative! This stone has a unique beauty all its own that makes it a perfect pick for anyone looking for a timeless look with a subtle twist. With an appearance that ranges from transparent to translucent, this subtle stone is incredibly versatile and always elegant.
This cool glittering gem gives a completely different look to the timelessly regal amethyst. Its soft green sparkle is both soothing and refreshing, making it a lovely stone for pairing with summer styles. With a gentle allure, this gem slowly draws the eye and holds it with its mesmerizing hue.
London blue topaz
London blue topaz is the darkest variety of blue topaz, and its dramatic hue makes it one that you won’t soon forget. The rich indigo sparkle this stone is reminiscent of that of a sapphire, but its price tag is significantly lower. The deeply-saturated, never steely tone of this stone makes it an eye-catching and sophisticated accent.
Although these gems aren’t quite as easy to find as stones such as aquamarine or garnet, these finds are worth searching out. Apples of Gold Jewelry is a great place to look; this online jewelry retailer carries rings, pendants and earrings featuring these and several other unique and money-saving gemstones, giving you many colorful and affordable options. And, since they make their jewelry available to customers at prices that are significantly lower than retail, these unique gemstone pieces can be extra wallet-friendly. Try an out-of-the-ordinary gemstone for beauty that you don’t see every day at an extraordinary price.
Are you a Pinterest addict? Then you are going to love this new app from Fancy. It works pretty much the same way Pinterest does, except on Fancy you are actually able to make purchases of the things you love. Teh reason I like Fancy so much is because it doesn’t look like a store, it looks like Pinterest, you are able to share with your friends anything you like. Check it out and then let me know what you think of it.
Can I start of with how much I love this phone! I mean, I am so in love with this phone so much that I ended up keeping it for myself instead of giving it to my husband for his FAther’s Day gift. It does everything I need it to do. It takes great pictures, it is reliable, it is bigger than my HTC Evo and lighter to. The LG Spirit 4G is simply amazing. I truly am so happy with this new phone. If you are looking for a new phone for your dad or husband, this phone is it. He will simply love it. You might even see him jump up and down or cry!
I was offered the opportunity to review a phone from Metro PCS, a no contract company that has coverage in more states than Cricket. Metro PCS is At & T coverage but no contract. It is the same service you would get if you went directly through AT&T minus the contract that they stick you with. They offer the same types of phones you can get anywhere else. Here is a map of their coverage, all of the purple (and there is a lot of it) is their coverage area! Metro PCS also allows you to bring your phone to their service as long as it is a phone under their service agreement. I did not see my HTC Evo on the list but I noticed there are a lot of phones that are eligible.
Now back to the LG Spirit 4G Cell Phone
The LG Spirit 4G has the full Andriod market so you don’t have to worry about certain application not being available. The camera takes very good photos, much brighter and clearer than my old phone. The camera also has a cheese shutter function, time catch slot and a high resolution camcorder. I have to say I am extremely impressed with the camera quality, compared to my daughter’s iPhone , the picture quality is very very close if not identical. Since I am a blogger, I use my phone’s camera daily when I am reviewing products or finding deals in stores, so having a phone with good picture quality is extremely important to me.
Also, as a blogger, I need to be able to get onto Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest whenever I find a deal that I need to share. Typically, I do not post blog postings directly from my phone unless it is something I need to jump on right that second, but having access to social media sites is imperative. The LG Spirit 4G held up very well for me. Facebook was slow to load a couple times but other than that the phone worked well for my social media needs.
The only thing that did not work and I am still not sure how to make work, is the GPS site maps. The phone was sent to me with a number outside my area, so I am hoping once I transfer my phone number to my new account that the area maps will work and I can use the GPS function. For now though, it us a pain because I rely on it so much and not having it is a big hassle for me.
For a phone of this size and what it can do I think the price is very good. It retails for $269.99 but is currently on sale for $219.
