Kids equal expenses… after daycare you think it will get better. It seems though they keep finding ways to spend your money. Sometimes it can be overwhelming and account draining. So it is always nice to know that there are still ways to get out of the house and have some fun family time for free. I found a few places to tell you about… enjoy!
