or at least very cheap!
Below you will find a list of area restaurants where kids either eat free or for very cheap!
While the majority of the listings are places where kids eat free some of the restaurants charge a small amount – so they are not actually “free” but a very good deal nonetheless.
You will also find that some of the restaurants where kids eat free have certain restrictions. I can’t stress enough to please call the restaurant location you plan on attending to get your free kids meal before you pack ...

She proceeded to tell me " I do need it, that way I can buy lots of icecream" I had to chuckle. I explained to her the reason for raising money and giving it to a worthy cause, she loved the idea. She then decided she wanted to donate the money ...

Valuable information for Protecting Your Famiiy’s Skin This Summer
The FDA will be introducing new guidelines for sunscreen products this fall… not in time for summer of course, but thankfully, the non-profit organization Environmental Working Group has done exhaustive research for us in the mean time.
