Cool Stuff You Can't Buy

We live in the Philly Suburbs and of course are fans of the local professional teams - Eagles, Phillies, Sixers, Flyers, Soul, etc. The come from behind win the Phillies had over the Mets last night was cool stuff you can not buy. Phils were down 7-0 and then came back to win in the 13th inning. The highlight film on this was outstanding (for a Phillies fan). Should be a great Fall to watch some baseball with some more great games.

Kite Flying ... Fun Activity at the Beach

We recently returned from our family vacation at the beach. One of the activities we tried out this year, and which I have not done for many, many years, was kite flying. It was really a lot of fun and the kids really enjoyed it too. We experimented with a variety of kites, varing in style and price. We brought one of the more expensive kites home and hope to have an opportunity to fly in a local park when the wind cooperates. I'd like to look into product availability a little more and if possible offer at If you haven't tried this, or it's been a while like it was for me, you should definitely try it out.

Father Son Golf

Golf between fathers and sons can be a lot of fun (it can be fun between mothers, daughters, and other family members as well).

We have a great 9 hole golf course near us that offers clinics and camps for kids and has a driving range for practice. Also, the course is very friendly to new golfers who don't have to feel overly anxious about their first few rounds on a golf course.

The game of golf is a life long sport to be enjoyed. This course promotes this sport and encourages new players of any age to get involved, learn the game, and improve their skills.

The featured putter set would be a great gift idea for Dad to allow him and the family to practice their putting at home.

Summer Progresses

Well I looked at my watch to check, we have indeed arrived in August. And like any other summer (and any other time of year for that matter), the days seem to pass quicker and quicker. The kids are now past the halfway mark for the new school year to start, but there is still plenty of time left to enjoy the weather and all that summer has to offer. There's still vacations to take, barbecues to be had, visits to the beach and pools to be made, camping trips, and so much more! So be sure to take some time off to enjoy some of these days left in Summer 2008 with the families and friends in your lives - enjoy!!
