    Friday Fun Day: Redbox Movies

    On April 13th I listed some Redbox movies, so now I’m going to make a new list in case you want to have a movie night! Also, check out my previous list and get some more ideas. I actually read this entire book series years ago when they first came out and they were great. I’ve only seen the first movie and it was pretty good, though as almost always happens, the book was better. I still need to see these two movies and when I do I’ll give you my rating. But Rotten Tomatoes gave The Scorch Trials a 46% and 54% of users said they liked it; and…

    Friday Fun Day: Family Activities

    When I was growing up I remember times when I had a lot of fun with my family. So, if you’re looking for something to do with your kids this weekend, check out this list! They aren’t all free, but sometimes you can splurge a little! Miniature Golf In almost every city (in America at least) there is a miniature golf course. I loved doing miniature golf, and many of these places also have arcade games, racing, wall-climbing, etc. You could really spend the entire day at one of these places and have an amazing time! There’s usually something for everyone and you can head out when the kids get…

    Friday Fun Day: Netflix Movies

    If you are looking for something to watch on Friday movie night, why not check out some of these films currently on Netflix? I’ve seen each one that I’m recommending so I’ll put my own short review as well! This is a seriously awesome Disney film and the first one I can remember that has a “princess” without any prince. There is no love interest, just Moana on an adventure to discover herself and why she is here. It has great songs that you’ll end up singing all day and it’s really a lot of fun. I give it a 9/10. This movie is based on a true story and…

    Friday Fun Day: Idea Time

    Here are some great ideas if you are trying to find something fun to do that isn’t super-expensive on a Friday or over the weekend! Tour Your Town We often take the cities we live in for granted, especially if we’ve lived there for several years. So, why not look at your town in a new way? Check it out as a tourist would! My favorite thing to do is head over to tripadvisor.com, type in the name of my city, and look at the top things to do (or see). Then find ones that are either free or cheap, add them to a list and head out this weekend…

    Friday Fun Day: Redbox Movies

    Redbox is basically today’s Blockbuster. You can either go to the box and pick out your movie or download it online (though it’s more expensive) and it has all the latest releases! So, if you want something fun to do this Friday night, why not check out these family-friendly movies? Remember: Family-friendly doesn’t mean the movies are for children, rather they aren’t full of as much swearing or sex as I would consider “adult” movies to be. They are rated PG-13 or lower. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle This is the sequel to the original Jumanji movie with an all-new cast of characters. I haven’t seen it yet, though I…

    Friday Fun Day: Book List

    On Friday’s I like to write stuff that’s just fun and family-friendly. Keep in mind that family-friendly doesn’t mean it’s for kids. But it’s clean and stuff that I like to recommend. Now, I already have a Christian book list if you’re interested in that. I will periodically update it and add new books as I read them. But this list is for fiction books if you are craving something to read on a Friday night! So, here are some great books that I really enjoyed and that you might like as well!\ Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen While the writing in this book may be a little hard…
