I wanted to share a great way for your family to spend time together this summer with little to no cost. Being a military family money can be tight but we always seem to make do with what we have. In 2010 when my husband deployed on deployment number 4 I took a leap and went back to school. Knowing that it was going to be difficult juggling a family, work, and school I did it anyway. About 6 months into school it became clear that it was much harder than I anticipated. I talked it over with my husband and because he is so supportive and pushes me to better myself we agreed that I would quit my job. Quitting my job meant things would be tight so a family vacation was definitely out of the question when he came home on his two week leave, or so I thought. Blue Star Museums became a saving grace for my family last year and it will again this year as I am still in school. My family found a way to spend time together, have an
educational summer, and spend little to no money doing it. My family couldn’t afford a beach vacation in big fancy hotels but we could afford day trips to Blue Star Museums and we never even had to leave our home state.
My family would pick a Blue Star Museum and plan a day trip to the museum and a local park for a picnic lunch. These one day trip were cheap since most of the time the only cost involved was gas and it gave my family some much needed family time, and a family vacation. Thebest part was I got to go on more than one vacation last year as we did this multiple times throughout the summer. Thank You Blue Star Museums!!!!
