50 Outdoor Activities Your Children Will Love

Need some activities for these perfect spring days before the heat overtakes us.

Kyle in Durham

Kyle spent 4 days in Durham last week W/O us!  But he was busy researching, presenting a paper, watching Duke basketball (with some avid Dukies), catching up with a couple friends, and meeting a lot of great people at the ISAE conference.  Mom and Dad were able to hear him present his paper (and take a couple photos).

The receipt shows todays venture.  I "bought" two Right Guard deodorants.  They each cost $3.99 originally but the store is having a Buy One get One Free promotion= (-$3.99), then I ha…
