While it’s true that times are tough all over, there’s no reason to put off outdoor activities with your family.  They grow up so fast.  My oldest son is turning 13 pretty soon he won’t want to hang out with old dad anymore.  While also trying to keep costs down, I’ve learned to become creative about finding fun things to do with the kids.

It’s true!  Some of the best things in life are free like Mayor Daley’s Kids & Kites Festival:  FREE paper kites will be provided.   If you’re kids love running around and playing like mine do, I suggest you check out this event.  Other fun activities include face painting, crafts, balloon artists, and more.

Date:  Saturday, May 7, 2011

Time:  10am – 4pm

Location:  Montrose Harbor, Chicago, IL (Northeast of Wrigley Field)

For more information, visit www.chicagokidsandkites.us or call 312.744.3316.

When you Google for directions, be sure to use Montrose Harbor, Chicago, IL

In keeping with our company slogan, AIMING FOR YOUR PEACE OF MIND, I just wanted to pass this on to you as a FREE, fun and stress-free activity for you and your family.

What does this have to do with real estate?  Nothing, but who cares.  Our kids are more important.

If you really want to read something real estate related, I recommend the Sun-times article in last Thursday’s paper, about low housing prices and the lowest mortgage rates in 50 years in this Chicago Sun-times article which you can click here to read.
