Nestle Family’s Best Summer Ever Wrap Up {Giveaway}

Did I blink?  Is Summer really over?  Last week, my girls started back to school which officially wraps up the Summer fun for my family.  We are already knee deep in homework, after school activities and daily routines.  Looking back, we had a tremendous Summer!  We took two incredible vacations and spent lots of quality time together as a family.

Last month, Nestle Family alongside seven bloggers (including myself) challenged you to have to Best.Summer.Ever!  Did you rise to the occasion?  We came up with some great activities for you to share with your family and friends to ensure that you created memories to cherish for a lifetime.  Hopefully you found them helpful and have been entering the giveaways to add to the fun!  If not, you have one more week to join the party! While Summer is over for my family, I know some of you are not quite back to the grind.  Why not enjoy making Summertime Smores, taking a weekend Staycation or birdwatching in your own neighborhood?

The ninth (and final) week of the Nestle Family Best Summer Ever Challenge brings some fantastic prizes inlcuding a 30-day supply of OVALTINE®, 12 pack of NESTLE®JUICY JUICE®, Reading collection from RIF, Amazon Kindle, and an Amazon Gift certificate (ARV $350).  The contest ends August 29, 2011 at 11:59 pm PST.

And the best news?  You can win right here on Experimental Mommy, too!

    Well we weren’t able to go anywhere this summer. I have been working 48-56 hrs each week so we have stayed home and the weeks have run together. We did get to celebrate a friend’s wedding with them and that was special for us.

  7. I was home on maternity leave most of the summer, so it was GREAT.

  8. We didn’t go far this year, but we had a gas camping in the backyard, cooking out over a campfire pit we made and fishing at our parks pond!
    Great giveaway, thanks!
