...Without Breaking the Bank
Summertime evokes a lot of images – relaxing in the backyard, enjoying an impromptu picnic or barbecue, maybe heading to the beach or camping – and most of those images involve family and loved ones.
For kids, the summer months are met with great anticipation and excitement – after all, two or three months without school is, for most kids, a major reason for celebration.
While many families plan one or two special events during the weeks of summer vacation, there is no denying even a modest vacation or a day spent at an amusement park or boardwalk can be costly. For plenty of hardworking moms and dads, summer vacations and even one-day outings may stretch their budgets well beyond the breaking point.
