The summer has been going by fast and before we know it, the kids will be headed back to school again. Between trips to Oregon State University, Mary’s Peak, and Longview to visit the in-laws, I’ve been busy with home improving projects. I recently finished building a play court for the kids and now I’m starting on a big deck project. We also plan on going on a few more trips — like to Hood River for a ride on the dino train, cooling off at the beach on the Oregon coast, and a fun day at the Enchanted Forest near Salem. Before I return to my busy summer, I have five Frito-Lay announcements to make: (1) free Blippar mobile app, (2) Fire Bone Hot Dog giveaway, (3) Skylanders® Game Truck Party, (4) Skylanders® coupons, and (5) a giveaway on my dad blog.

The new Skylanders® Trap TeamTM game will be released in North America on October 5th.
