How I Earned a Quick $35 Yesterday with Swagbucks

Long time readers will know I'm a huge fan of Swagbucks. It's an easy way to cover my entertainment budget, save big on holiday shopping sprees and make money trying out new products i would otherwise be skeptical of. The downside of Swagbucks is that the site gives you so many different ways to earn that it can be complicated and hard to keep track of all it's earning features. 

Well, Swagbucks runs this promotion once a month called SWAGO. It's like BINGO, except each square takes you to a different part of their site where you can earn points, called SB, doing something easy online. You get paid for filling out your board - the more spaces you fill out, the bigger your bonus! This month, the bonus for filling out your whole board is 300 SB, which you can redeem for a $3 gift card right away. But, that's just the start of your earnings with SWAGO. Because the game takes you to every nook and cranny of their site, you end up earning a ton of points along the way and learning if Swagbucks is right for you.

Silverwood Theme Park & Boulder Beach Water Park ~ Family 4 Pack Ticket 2016 Summer Giveaway!

Summer is finally here!  That means having fun, spending time outdoors, and creating family memories that will last a lifetime.  One of our family's favorite summer activities is going to Silverwood Theme Park and Boulder Beach Water Park.  

Located in beautiful North Idaho, Silverwood Theme Park is the Pacific Northwest's largest theme park, with over 70 rides, slides, shows and attractions, including four roller coasters, Boulder Beach Water Park, a steam engine train ride through the woods, live entertainment, magic shows, restaurants, and so much more

NEW this year is the Riptide Racer water slide! It is six bright, colorful water slides side-by-side so that you can race your family and friends to the bottom!  This 6 lane water slide will bring out the competition as sliders race down the 400 foot slide at speeds nearly 30 mph! We haven't tried it yet - but it looks like a blast!

The great thing about having a theme park and a water park at the same location... Silverwood Theme Park + Boulder Beach Water Park = one admission price = both parks!

We get season passes to Silverwood every year, have for the past 11 years. We only live about 15 minutes away, so it is the perfect summer time activity for our family. We go for a few hours, have a blast and then come home. 

The carousel is just inside the main gate at the entrance of the park.  From the time our kids were little (1 1/2 years old), they knew that this ride was our very last stop in the park before heading home.  It made it easy to leave the park this way - no fits!  Now at ages 15 and 12, we still ride the carousel once or twice before heading home - it's a tradition!

   Of course we love the rides and water slides, but we also love the variety of other fun activities like the magic show, train robbery on the steam engine ride, seeing the bison, and the adorable and friendly mascots; Garfield and Odie!  Even though my children weren't always fond of them (they can be quite intimidating for the little ones), Garfield and Odie are always happy to pose for photos, give hugs, hand shakes, and high 5's!
