Autauga Creek Canoe Trail Clean Up 7/31/11

The Autauga Creek Canoe Trail is a four-mile canoe trail starting behind Stanley Jensen Stadium in Prattville. It has been neglected for some time. Until a group of citizens decided to do something about it. This clean up effort has been and continues to be driven by citizen participation.  Citizens will break into 6 groups, each taking a section of the Autauga Creek, and 2 groups each taking a section on the banks, for a massive clean up effort on July 31st. 

There will be two clean up sessions that day; one at 8 am, and the second at 1 pm.  Meet at the American Legion on Doster Road.

Clean up workers will need to wear old shoes and be prepared to get wet and muddy.  For those volunteers who prefer, there is also plenty of work that needs to be done in two areas on the banks. 

Items to bring, if you have them, include:  chain saws, canoe/kayak/john boats, rope, gloves, weed eater, and branch cutter/pruning sheers.

If you're interested in getting involved or need more information, please contact Iris Korthauer at or 361-9302.

For more info join the Autauga Creek Canoe Trail Group on Facebook or check out the event page here.

Reminder: Lowe's Build and Grow Clinic 7/23/11

This Saturday is another great FREE Build and Grow Clinic at Lowes. If your children are going to attend, you need to register early to reserve a kit and a space, because this one looks like it might be pretty popular.

Partcipants also receive a free apron, goggles, project patch and certificate.

It starts at 10 am, but we have found that it's best to get to the clinic about 10-15 minutes early, because if you don't a lot of people that didn't register show up and the kits get taken or they run out of seating and have to wait (not fun with an impatient 2 year old in tow.)

The next one looks fun, too:
I think I will go ahead and register for that one!

FREE Family Movie Under The Stars- Tangled 7/22/11

Lakeview Baptist Church is once again hosting a FREE Family Movie Night Under The Stars. Friday, 7/22/11 starting at 6 pm.

Bring your kids, friends and a lawn chair or blankets to enjoy a FREE family-friendly movie outside on the big screen! This month's showing is Tangled!

Free pizza dinner starts at 6 pm!

During the movie enjoy FREE freshly-popped popcorn!

Tip from me: Don't forget to wear mosquito repellant! (We are in Alabama!)

See you there!

International Fun Day 7/22/11 Morgan Memorial Library

From 10 am to 2 pm, Friday 7/22/11 the Montgomery City County Public Libraries will join together for International Fun Day downtown at the Morgan Memorial Library to celebrate the end of the summer reading program.

Even if you didn't participate in the summer reading program, you are welcome to come join the FREE fun! There will be games, food, entertainment and more fun! Each library will be representing different countries with actvities relating to that country.  

I was told that depending on the weather, there may be inflatables outside for the kids to play in. They are planning on having some activities and demonstrations outside and some inside- in the auditorium.

Tip from me: Be aware that there is limited parking in the library lot. There is a parking lot across the street that looked to have lots of open spaces the other day, when we were down there, so that may be an option if the library's lot is full.

While you are there you might want to check out the Friends of The Library Bookstore. They had a lot of adult fiction on sale 3 for a quarter, in addition to the sale books that are always 3 for a quarter including the kid's discount books.

Earth Fare: Kids Eat Free Tonight + Free Dog Bone + $5 off $20

River Region Grocery: Best Prices This Week 7/20/11

I am trying something new this week. Instead of typing out a different list for each of the local grocery stores, I am making one list that has all the best local grocery store prices. Use this to compare to the Publix and Winn Dixie ads and see where to go to buy the cheapest groceries in the River Region.

I like this better because I can quickly compare the items that I most need and see who has the lowest prices. Let me know in the comments what you think.

I might start adding in the best prices at Publix and Winn Dixie for comparison.

Bread Store Bargains!

I love our bread store. Mainly because it's an Arnold's Bakery Store and Arnold makes some really good (healthy) bread. I haven't been in the bread store in a while and was pleasantly surprised to find these smoking hot bargains today when we stopped in.

Hamburger and Hot Dogs buns 4 for $1! (Hello, freeze them for Labor Day cookouts!) They had lots of these, which is probably why they were so cheap. If you want them, I wouldn't wait too long to go get them, though.

Bimbo (Say it "Beembo") wheat and white bread-4 loaves for $1.98!

I don't generally buy this brand but I can't pass up the price. We had sandwiches on it today and it's pretty good. Usually I can find the Arnold's wheat buns there for $0.99 a package, too. But didn't see any today.

One thing to remember about the bread store (okay, two.)

#1: It's random what you might find. I prefer a certain kind of bread but I am flexible so when I go and don't find the certain kind, I can get what ever happens to be there. You may or may not find any of these brands there. I can usually find some variety of Thomas english muffins there, too.

#2: The prices are cheaper, the more you buy. The buns that I found today were 4 for $1 but if you buy just one, they will cost $0.50 each. Most of the bread in the store is priced that way, so pay attention.

One more thing: They don't take credit cards. Checks or cash only.

Arnold's Bakery Store is located just off the Bypass near Wares Ferry Rd. It's in a little shopping center and it's easy to miss, so let me know if you need better directions.

River Region FREE or Cheap Weekend Activities 7/15-7/17/2011

Every night this week has been VBS at our church. It has been a lot of fun, but being out later every night has finally caught up with us. I am so very sleepy today. The weather isn't helping, either. Tonight is the last night. I think I might sleep late in the morning. Do you think the kids will? If you said "Yes," then you don't know my kids.

I am crossing my fingers for good weather Saturday night, because I would really like to take the kids to the Performance on the Green. We have never been and I think it would be fun to take a picnic dinner.
