My poor boys - because I started a new job just before the beginning of summer and it has consumed an enormous amount of my time, we really didn't have a "normal" summer. I haven't taken them swimming once yet (although we are going to Hurricane Harbor this weekend in 107 degree heat). We didn't go on vacation (but we have one scheduled this fall). We just didn't do the things we have typically done every summer for as long as they can remember.
Coleman Family AdventureFest that is coming to the Irving Convention Center the weekend of August 21 - 23, I knew it was something I wanted to do with my boys. Taking place both inside and outside the convention center, the adventure-themed activities and celebrity visits by Herschel Walker, Philippe Cousteau and more will fascinate my boys. They can try archery, building and launching rockets, play fishing games, test robotics, experience a virtual zip line, climb a rock wall and more.
Coleman is sponsoring the event, and it actually made me more interested in the event because we use their products regularly, especially when we go camping. I trust that this event will be done well simply because I know Coleman is behind it.
