Things to do with the kids this summer

Hi guys.
I promised some links for summer fun with the kiddos.

The first and the one I am most excited about is 2 games bowling daily now thru August 31st.  I am all for good old fashioned fun!  Children under 15 are free.  You can add up to 4 people over 15 for only $25.  Shoe rentals are not included. is the sight.  It asks for the email of the person who referred you, so please list mine,

Next is the reading programs.  I love incentives for reading.  Free books and various prizes abound.

Check out the Barnes and Noble program here.  If you have creative kids, I see they have a "create your own book" activity too.  I might have to check that out for my little guy.  It looks like there might be a charge involved for the creating your own book portion but you end up with a hard back or soft back book when it's completed.

And Borders

And Scholastic is completely online

And the Book it program thru Pizza Hut

It looks like Regal is charging $1 for each of their showings instead of free like in the past but it's still a pretty great deal.

Lowes and Home Depot both have weekend kids build projects.  They are fun and free.

Free swim lessons thru portland parks and rec.  A few years back Portland Parks had free times for each of their outdoor pools.  We were able to swim just about every day of the week.  The pools are crowded but still enjoyable.

Do you have summer fun that I haven't included?  If so, please add a comment so we can all benefit.
