Our museum day thanks to blue star museum initiative

Well I found about this great program for military to get in free to museums across the US there are over 900 museums in the 50 states and the district of Columbia that are participating the blue star initiative.

What is Blue Star Museums?

Blue Star Museums is a program that offers free admission to museums for all active duty military personnel and their families from Memorial Day, May 31, through Labor Day, September 6, 2010

To find a list of participating museums go here.

Who is eligible? The free admission program is available to any bearer of a Geneva Convention common access card (CAC), a DD Form 1173 ID card, or a DD Form 1173-1 ID card, which includes active duty military (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard), National Guard and Reserve members and up to five immediate family members.

Here is the full list of FAQ's

We have only taken advantage of this once but i plan to see every museum in or around my area. we took the kids to the Children's museum of Tacoma . they had a blast it was all hands on i couldn't tear them away from it. it was a great learning experience for them and us.

Weekly Wins Wednesday (a day late)

As most of you know one of my hobby's is entering sweepstakes, instant wins, twitter contests etc... I enjoy doing it because i am able to win things we would never be able to afford. for an example both my kids birthdays were paid for with wins. I found out about sweepstakes back in December last year through a great site sweeties sweeps http://sweetiessweeps.com/ She has great how to guides and her site lists new sweepstakes and instant wins everyday.

So i thought I would start a weekly posting every Wednesday to list the things we have all won throughout the week. I wasn't able to enter any contest for the month I was gone to Oregon. this is the first week i have been back to sweeping and my wins have made up for the whole month it seems I am very excited and almost shocked about the things I have won.

This week I have won : A hammock from, a Coleman road trip grill from, a flip cam, $5 Quiznos card, $10 Starbucks, a necklace from Charlotte Russe, a caress whipped souffle prize pack. A Little Tikes sprinkler ball, t-shirt and 5 Sobe coupons.

Now if you are interested in learning how to win stuff don't forget to check out sweeties site and if you have won anything in the past week please share i would love to hear about it.
