50 Ideas for Summer Outings with your Kids

50 Summer Outings with Kids

When we moved to Dallas almost two years ago, I was overwhelmed with the endless possibilities for outings.  There is seriously ALWAYS something new to go do. Thankfully, someone sent me a list of ideas they had for the Dallas area.  It helped me so much to have an organized list of activities, so here is a list for you. This is not just specific to Dallas.
