Frugal Friday 148

Happy Frugal Friday!

Here is how we saved money/spent money wisely/made extra money:

- Mark worked two shifts at his part time job.

- My friend Nicole and her son Henry came to visit. Henry is 2.5 months younger than Owen so we were able to send home some hand-me-downs with them.

- We had a bbq pork dinner after Annabeth's dance recital to celebrate her dance achievements as well as Father's Day. We were able to eat the leftovers Sunday for dinner and Monday for lunch.

- My parents were in town and treated us to Friday dinner and Sunday lunch out. Mark's parents' treated Mark to a Father's Day dinner out on Sunday. Thank you all! You sure know how to make us feel special!

- We took a quick (it was hot!!) trip to the park for a Father's Day picnic with my parents. We enjoyed surprising Annabeth with the new swings at our park. They are very fun and allow a parent to swing with their child. Owen had his first time on a swing and loved it!!

Owen enjoyed his first time on a swing!
I think Mark enjoyed it too!

- I finished two photo books, Owen's 1st Birthday Book and Annabeth's 3rd Dance Season Book. I also had two FREE photo books set to expire on Shutterfy. I was able to order both books for just the cost of shipping. I saved $60!!

- This week has been extremely hot here - especially for June! We have been playing outside early in the morning and then enjoying the afternoon inside. As a result, Annabeth and I have both completed 15 hours of summer reading and thus the Summer Reading Program at our library! We each have entered to win some neat prizes and each earned a FREE book as well!

- On Thursday, we visited friends who are raising ducks. Jeanette gave us a great lesson about ducks and we enjoyed watching the ducks splash in their little pool. Summer science class!

We have enjoyed a slower week than the past six or so. This next week is swimming lessons and then the arrival of Auntie Jenn and the kids. We are certainly looking forward to both of those events!

Happy Savings to All!
