weekend links

Welcome back to weekend links! This is my chance to share fun and informative links and kid-friendly fun that I have encounter in my weekly interweb travels. As summer begins to draw to a close and many of us either have kids back in school or are preparing for the upcoming first day, here’s some ideas of getting “out there” into nature and squeezing out the last drops of summer:

The National Park Service is celebrating its birthday by offering free admission to any national park on Sunday, August 25, 2013.


Free admission covers entrance fees, commercial tour fees, and transportation entrance fees. The perfect excuse to enjoy free entrance to nearly 400 parks across the country on Sunday. Find a participating park in your state and check for additional discounts from participating park vendors and neighboring businesses.
