It seems like everywhere you go the prices just continue to go up. A dozen eggs are almost five dollars. When did that happen? A gallon of milk is about four dollars. Don't get me started on the price of meat.

So this is the time of year that we look for ways to save money. Heck if the word free is used it will definitely grab my attention. It being summertime another important thing is to find stuff for the family to do.

Again low priced or even free activities are highly sought after. We have a great museum here in Amarillo that you may have not visited in a while. I am talking about the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame & Museum.

If it has been a while since you have checked it out you will want to put two important dates on your family calendar.

These summer Saturdays July 16th and August 27th are both days that you can visit the museum and it does not cost you a penny. According to their website, there are a bunch of activities you can enjoy from 10 am to 2 pm.

  • Storytelling
  • Crafts
  • Self-guided museum tours
  • Free activity books for the first 100 kids
  • Meet a real American Quarter Horse in the Arena
  • Special appearance by Two Bits mascot
  • Snacks and refreshments

You know your kids will love this day. Who doesn't love horses? Here is a chance for them to have fun, and learn about these great horses, all while you are saving money. This is what I call a win for the family these days.
