I am lucky, my two oldest help me! My oldest daughter is 14 and my oldest son is 12! We live in a pretty small, rural town here in Iowa and we don't have a lot to do around here! In the summer we go to the beach or boating at the lake that is about 5 miles or so away from town! We are members to the local golf course which has a pool! All my kids love the water! We do go spend a couple weeks out of the summer at our (my parent's own it) families lake house which is located an hour away! It is our little mini stay-cation in the summer, it is located far enough away from the town we live but doesn't require us to spend a ton of money to go there!
Other then what I said above, we do go to the zoo in Des Moines or the Science Center! Our town has an annual festival once a year in the summer which is always a big deal and the kids really look forward to that! There is always a lot to do!
The winter time isn't as much fun! We do some sledding but we usually do a lot of movie nights or the game contests (who can win the most or who can beat who) which can get pretty interesting since my oldest is pretty competitive sometimes!
How about you, what do you do for fun?
