Here’s how to have a great day without spending a dime…

Build your own water park

OK, so somebody spent dimes somewhere for each  of these fun things.   The slip ‘n slide belongs to our neighbors, but it makes a great waterpark set up on the hill behind our house.  The Care Bear house was purchased at Target, on  clearance for $3.68 three year ago – before Emily was born, so that hardly counts as spending money.  This was the last of the three that  I bought – it’s been taking up room in the basement, so it was time to get it out and set it up!  And the dessert on the front step was the result of the ice cream truck driving through the sub-division just as we were all fininshing dinner.  The parents forked over $3 a  piece for the cool treats and the girls and their neighbor friends ran to our house to enjoy them together.  That ice cream truck driver is no dummy!
