June 16, 2015 - The boy and I managed just a single trip to McDonald's in the past month, and each scored a NERF squirt gun. The "girl version" looks like a pink bow, but shoots water instead of plastic or foam projectiles.

There are lots of big movies coming out soon, which means many movie tie-in promotions on cereal boxes. On your next trip to get groceries, take a few extra moments to check it out - there are offers for free movie tickets as well as freebies packed into some of the boxes.

January 16, 2015 - The boy made a single trip to McDonald's last month. He scored a Spy Gear toy and then asked that we get him a set from eBay. When I agreed, he also requested a set of Penguins toys, because he had been paying attention to the commercials. It turns out that the Penguins are really nice toys - they are a periscope, binoculars, a wind-up toy, a water squirter, one that shoots a projectile, and one that launches a fish with a hidden message inside.

December 19, 2014 - It's been a crazy month, so we made no fast food visits at all this past month. Looking back over the past year, the clear choice for our household's favorite fast food premium was The LEGO Movie cup collection from McDonald's. We ended up with a whole set and a few extras, and the cups have really gotten a lot of use.
