Doing a search for local free activities is a wonderful way to have fun without the stress or excuse of no funding. I say excuse for it is far too easy to just give into to 'not being able to afford' entertainment. We had a nice time.
first off we packed up all the jackets and the hats. Snacks, drinks and the camera. We stopped and got some 'C' batteries and with some old battery operated lights on the dash's we were set.
Our neighborhood has one of the very best lighted streets complete with a back yard set up in a nativity/911 theme. It is a quite walk there, but fun around the rest of the caldesac (sp). Lots of lights.
We did stop and get the kids a $1 McD. We had drinks from home.
Oh we had so much fun. Kids were a bit over the top for the back seat :)
We next went to a local mall where Mrs Clause read a story and the ceiling was 'snowing foam'. Well it was then obvious that our two are no longer little. Oh mercy on those two. They were so humored at how the little kids were too cute. We soon left there after using the facilities. I accidentally fell down a couple of steps onto my knees. Goodness I am a klutz.
It was our turn on the buggy, we got off at 8:53 p.m. second to the last group. It was so cool. Some how there was a $5 bill in my billfold. I have no idea where it came from. So cool we had a tip to give. We all walled around and really enjoyed each other. It was really fun.
We then drove for ever to try to find a light show without ever finding it. We all had so many laughs.
We have a list for tomorrow...

Look into your local area events and search for free opportunities. Have some fun.
