Water Fun

One of my favorite things to do during the summer is get wet with the kiddos. Since our income doesn't allot for expensive purchases like water park tickets, we have to find ways to get wet at home and still have fun doing it.

In this newsletter, I have put together lots of great ideas and tips to create your own "wet and wild" water games. These not only will be loads of fun, but will also be easy on the pocketbook as well!

One of our favorite things to do is to drive to our local lake, which is about 30 minutes away and picnic and swim for the day. Besides the gas money to drive there, we are out no money. Fun for the kids--inexpensive for me!

If you have some fun water ideas, be sure and drop me a line and let me hear them. I love to share that kind of stuff on the blog!

1 quart water
Lime wedges
In a large pitcher, stir together the lime juice, honey and water. Pour into tall, ice-filled glasses and garnish with lime wedges. Serves 5.
