I stumbled upon a fun little "Pay it Forward" contest going on this week, hosted by Swistle. Well, I LOVE contests, as you know, so I'm jumping on board with this one. Here's how it works. I offer up some fabulous prize, and about Friday, the 4th of July (after the parade and before the barbeque and firworks) I pick a random winner from the throngs of you that are going to leave comments on this post. When I send out the fabulous prize, that person then gets to host their own contest on their blog (or, if they don't have a blog, they can just take cookies to a neighbor or send something nice to a friend, as long as we're all trying to pay it forward). So, it's like spreading the love, and making new friends, right?
What's the prize? Well, I don't exactly know yet. It will most likely be a book from my extensive pile of books I want to read but haven't gotten around to yet, or maybe one from the pile of already read ones. Maybe a CD? Maybe some treats? I just don't know yet. Maybe a new car? Probably not. In fact, most definitely not. Until I can win my own new car, I won't be giving any cars away, and even if I did, who would want my 1990 Dodge Caravan with 146K miles on it? Really? You would? Oh.
How do you enter? Just leave a comment here. I'd actually like to know your favorite summer activity to do with your kids, ok? It could be a little thing you do with your kids, or maybe a favorite vacation you've taken with your kids. If you don't have kids, it could just be your favorite thing about summer, ok? I don't want to make this hard and complicated, just a fun summer question.
