"Mommy, I want to go to Chuck E Cheese, Can we please go to Chuck E Cheese?" This is something I have been hearing in my house lately. I love to take my kids fun places. I do not like to spend money just for them to have fun though. I know children just want to spend time with their parents and feel loved and appreciated yet anytime I step foot outside our house it feels like all the fun for kids activities comes with a price tag. My kids are just about tired of the playground down the street and it has been really too hot to spend too much time there anyway. The last couple days we have been blessed to find some fun things that were free =)
There was a free train ride running of the 4th of July.
Then the kids posed inside lady liberty.
There is also a really nice park here in Springfield called the Jordan Valley Park.
It has running water and water fountains, the kids had so much fun!
Then we found a really nice Library about 10 minutes from our house. It has a train you can go inside and lots of hands on things for the kids to play with.
Of course Chris came with me to all these places! After all fun things with 4 small kids by yourself can go from fun to frantic in about 30 seconds flat!
