School's out for summer and it just doesn't get much better than life at the lake! #SorryImNotSorry

Growing up I lived for summer from warm summer nights, bonfires, beach days, to movie nights.

Fast forward 10-20 years and now I'm making summer memories with the sweetest little girl in the world! Back in the day it was all about finishing a roll of film and getting it developed ASAP and now I can snap a photo and share it within seconds.

Having a  phone with a affordable plan and great camera is key to creating and capturing summer memories. Plus, it doesn't hurt if it comes with a perk or two. Hello, VUDU!

Yup, you guessed it I'm talking about the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS Plan again. Why because it's awesome! The plan features Unlimited Talk, Text, & Data which includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE data PLUS a free movie on VUDU ($7 value) every month per line for $49.88.

The hubby recently needed a new phone so I picked up the LG K7 [$89.88] the last time I was at Walmart. Features include Android Lollipop 5.1 operating system, 5.0" FWVGA color display and 5MP camera with flash.

The difference to note between my Samsung Galaxy Core Prime and LG K7 is the LG K7 phone only works with the Nano Starter Kit. Keep that in mind when you're shopping. Everything else regarding the plan is the same! My out of pocket was really low compared to other prepaid carriers - only $19.88 [rollback from $25] to get the hubby started.

Once your phone is set up start capturing those memories!


Explore the Great Outdoors
Living in Tahoe the adventures are endless! We actually have a endless trail system just doorsteps from our house and take advantage of them daily! Right now the wildflowers are in full bloom making the perfect backdrop to snap some photos!

Snap all the Funny Faces
If you have kids then this pretty much sums it up.  These are key for the annual photo album!

Head to the Beach, Park, etc.
Basically get out there and have some fun! It's summer don't stay inside get outside and soak in all the vitamin D you can! Summer is funnier with friends so give them a call and snap some photos while you're at it.

Watch Summer Classics
After a full day of fun once home, pop some popcorn, kick back and watch a classic movie . BTW -VUDU helps create the perfect date night in!

Five movies I can't wait to watch on VUDU include, but are not limited to:

1. Troop Beverly Hills
2. The Great Outdoors
3. Capitan Ron
4. A League of Their Own
5. American Pie

P.S. You can stream your free VUDU movie on a TV, Smart TV, ROKU(R), Chromecast(R), or VUDU Spark(TM)!

How are you creating summer memories?

Oh, just in case you want to pick up a new phone the next time you're at Walmart check out the electronics section!


  1. Captain Ron! Love that movie. I think I'm going to have to track it down this summer and watch!!!!

  2. This was great. I always have my IPhone at the ready. I am also looking forward to League of their own. Should be really interesting to compare to the original!

  3. Your little one is adorable! Walmart Family Mobile sounds like a great deal.

  4. Those photos are adorable! I totally agree that you want to try and capture some of those funny faces! My little one is extremely expressive so I love snapping funny photos... future photos to embarrass her with... absolutely!
