Nice: 37 Ridiculously Awesome Things To Do In Your Backyard This Summer. Some fun things to do for families + kids. Some things aren't kid-friendly (and we wouldn't do)-- like beer pong. But most of these are fun ideas for families and kids.
So going to institute this 'Clean your room' check list for kids! Laminate and use a dry erase marker. =) No more checking and rechecking - "Is my room clean yet, Mom?" Can I PLEASE go out side NOW??" Don't call me until the checklist is complete :)
