Inexpensive Summer Field Trip For Kids!

Haha, this was so much fun today! I'm not sure if all Scheels are like this around the country, but in Reno, NV. If you're looking for something fun and inexpensive to do with your kids, as well as educational, why not check out your local Scheels store.

This place was amazing! It is a large two story, shopping sports center with a life size ferris wheel in the middle of the ground floor for the kids to ride for a dollar! After the ferris wheel we visited the HUGE aquarium. You can actually walk under it while the fish swim above and around you!

Afterwards, we headed upstairs to where we met a few of our USA Presidents past. Thomas Jefferson and Abe Lincoln are live robotic animation and make history come to life with their realistic movements and speech. There are many other presidents that share politically relative speeches that they were known for during their time in the White House, including President Reagans "Berlin Wall" speech.

There is also a bunch of wild, stuffed animals throughout the store posed in their natural habitat.

We had such a great time wondering around! All this cost us only $1.00 (for the ferris wheel) and we have a lifetime of summer memories from this special trip.

What are you doing this summer on a budget?

  3. The Arizona Wildcats men’s basketball team are getting ready for their upcoming Armed Forces Classic game against Michigan State that will be taking placed in Honolulu. Nike Kobe 6 is helping them get battle ready by sending the team a special Kobe 11 for them to Chris Paul Shoes play in. Arizona recently shared their “We Remember” uniforms, which end up being a perfect match with Kyrie 2 the Nike Kobe 11. Just like the uniform, the shoe comes in a digi camo engineered mesh Adidas Basketball Shoes upper. Hits of Red take care of the branding which appears on the tongue, panels and heel.

    Last week Nike Curry 2.5 was advertising a “mystery” sneaker that would be releasing via their SNKRS app on a random time Cavalier Steam Shop on Christmas Day. That sneaker ended up being the “Samurai” colorway of the all-new Nike Kyrie 3.This Warriors Team Store Kyrie 3 is the same pair that Kyrie gifted to a handful of family and friends, such as Victor Cruz. The Nike Kyrie 3 Samurai features a Dark Obsidian upper with bold red splattering on the ankle that resembles blood. The shoe sold out in a few minutes on Nike SNKRS and Curry Shoes retailed for $120. Kyrie also wore it for the second half of the Cavs’ game against the Warriors where he drained the game-winning shot with three seconds remaining.
    I mean, it only made sense right? The James Harden Shoes
