How do the months fly by so quickly? Over the past year, I have been keeping the discounts on my site updates through messages from readers like you & official emails from companies.
Here's a little update on my end. My first grandchild was born this past year. He's an adorable little guy, and much of my time has been spent on adjusting to this new and welcomed chapter in life.
We've just survived a brutal winter out here--the worst in years. Our home suffered some room and ceiling damage from the ice dams. Now that the weather is finally warming up, we have started with the process of repairs. Not very fun.
The long winter has left us with a bit of "cabin fever." We're soaking in the spring and summer sun by going outdoors often--all before winter draws its curtains again for another few months.
If you're like us and itching to go outdoors, remember to consider this wonderful program offered by the National Park Service:
$10.00 - Lifetime Pass

Each pass covers entrance fees at national parks and national wildlife refuges as well as standard amenity fees at national forests and grasslands, and at lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management and Bureau of Reclamation.
