Having received a copy of the book, I’ve been able to read through and find a few things we’ve done already this summer and have booked a few more on our calendar. Some things I had been familiar with but most of them were a completely new idea.
I think this would make a great resource in your home library especially if you often have family coming into town or are traveling to Georgia. Being able to entertain your whole family affordably, makes being a great host a lot easier.
