Groupon challenged me to the BEST SUMMER EVER and I think we've been successful so far. We have played mini-golf with alligators, visited lions, tigers and bears, oh my!, bought enough paint supplies from a local art studio to last all summer, went bowling as a family (that was fun!), and that's just to name a few.
We also visited our local Play It Again Sports and picked up some tennis racquets with hopes of having a little fun summer tennis matches with the family.
Play It Again Sports is absolutely awesome. We were able to get a Groupon for $30 and picked up some really nice things in their store. This summer our family has made a commitment to exercise together at least 30 minutes a day. It is nice to have a few different options, and play it again sports came to the rescue in this case. We spent a good while browsing their goods and were surprised how new and close to new everything looked. They had everything from roller-skates to basketballs, football to skateboards, weight sets to well, you get the idea. They don't just stock old, unwanted goods either. Our local play it again sports had great quality, nice looking equipment at an unbeatable price.
As I scanned around I found their weights section. I had been wanting to start a little weight training to tone and build muscle and I couldn't believe how affordable the weights were compared to elsewhere. With our Groupon, they really were cheap. I quickly put the pair I needed into my pile and kept browsing the store. As we scanned the wall to wall equipment, we found the perfect thing! Tennis! None of us had ever actually played, but what a fun thing to learn and a great way to exercise. My entire family picked out racquets that looked practically brand new and some tennis balls and our the door we went. We drove straight to our local parks tennis courts and got to playing. Tennis is a lot harder than I thought, but it we are getting exercise even if it's just from chasing balls. This is the best summer ever!
