{Ended} Giveaway: Adventures Around Cincinnati Book {4 Winners}

Life gets busy.  It just does no matter how hard we try there are never enough hours in a day.  But family fun and adventures are just as important as all of the things on a “To Do” list.  I know that my kids are growing up way too fast and I bet you would say the same about yours.  So do you make family time a priority? I need reminders to put my laptop down, let the laundry and dishes sit so I can spend time with my kids.  That is certainly easier when we are not at home!

Laura Hoevener and Terri Weeks, authors of Adventures Around Cincinnati, have spent lots of time researching (with their kids of course) adventures full of fun and even education.  They recommend setting aside time for outings with your kids.  Days when nothing else can be scheduled.  I bet they would tell me that my laptop and iPhone should be off limits those days!

I have lived here in the Cincy area most of my life.  I have fond memories of many Cincinnati attractions (such as Union Terminal, Fountain Square, Sawyer Point and many more.) I am amazed when I find things to do in the area that I didn't know about.  Thanks to Laura & Terri I can't wait plan new adventures with my kids!

They have provided copies of their book for me to giveaway to 4 of you.  I'm sure you will find things to do in Cincinnati that you are not aware of as well as some that you my have forgotten.  Use it to plan adventures with your kids!

    I try to make sure I have something for us to do every free weekend we have without school or scout functions. We are a military family and love to explore the local area where we are stationed, but we have to take advantage of the time quickly before the next move.

    I would LOVE to win a copy of this book! I have 5 small children and we are always looking for fun things to do in this area!! We try to do one fun family activity a month – at least. In the summers, we like to venture out even more! It’s not always easy to find something new and exciting. And although we adore the zoo and have a great time at Union Terminal, I KNOW there are many more things out there that we could do that would be educational as well as fun!

    We have family night every Friday. We do everything we can together as a family :)

    My husband and I make it a priority to do fun things as a family every weekend, usually Saturday. Sometimes it’s 1 on 1 or all together. Making memories of fun things no matter how big or small is what my babies will remember when they are all grown up. I know they will say in the future, “Do you remember when Mom dragged us to the Christmas blah blah every year”! ;-)

    We try to do something at least once a week as a family, even if its just going to the park.

    I try to keep my ear/eye open to fun family adventures for the kids. If I hear something and we don’t have a commitment, we just go for it. I try to plan around it ahead of time but on rare occasion the dirty dishes or whateve just have to wait.
