These fun deals were found for you by specialist Kelly who is a full time mommy to 3 beautiful girls. She says, “I also have the chance to work very part time at the Clark County family YMCA as a group X instructor and personal trainer. I have always enjoyed finding fun things to do with family and it’s even better when we find fun events that are free or next to free. I love to kick box, run, hike, and save money 🙂 My amazing husband of almost 11 years and my sweet girls are everything to me. I am very blessed! I’ve always told my husband that his job is to make the money and my job is to stretch that money as far as I possibly can. We make a great team:).”
