Coca-Cola's 125 Years of Summer Fun Initiative {Review & Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, robynl!}

Even though it feels like just last week that I was complaining that it seemed like it was never going to get warm, here it is August already and summer is quickly feeling like it is passing by. Time flies when you're out enjoying the sunshine!

For even more enjoyment and to celebrate their 125th anniversary, Coca-Cola has created a great program available through My Coke Rewards that is designed to help busy moms create fun for the whole family. There are a variety of rewards, with everything from snacks to games to products - and who doesn't like those?

There is even a great interactive treasure map that will help lead you to uncover creative summer activities, tips, recipes, how to donate to your child's school, and much more. And all that is required of you? Just be sure to be a My Coke Rewards member and be ready for summer fun!

Here in the Midwest we've been having our own summer of fun and Coca-Cola made it even easier with a nice collection of items to help enjoy our time outdoors.

From the beach tote that is great for carrying towels, sunscreen, beach toys, and more to the cooler bag that is just the right size for keeping our lunch and drinks cold, we've been ready to head to the beach, lake, splash pad or even just in our own backyard for summer fun with Coke.

When we're not throwing around the Coca-Cola Frisbee, there has been plenty of laughter on the water slide...

...and when we're not tossing around the Coca-Cola Beach Ball, we're diving into the swimming pool time and time again. You just can't beat the fun of summer!

There's still plenty of days left to get out and enjoy the remainder of summer - and now is the time! Head over to My Coke Rewards for tips and ideas on how to create a lifetime of memories for you and your family... and why not pick up a great prize or two from them as well?

And, thanks to the generosity of Coca-Cola, one person will be even more prepared to get outdoors and have some fun, because...

One lucky person will win a Coca-Cola Beach Kit Prize Pack*!

*Prize pack contains: 24 Can Cooler Bag, Coca-Cola Visor, RPET Can Cooler, 24" Beach Ball, Flyer, 32-oz Sports Bottle, Coca-Cola Koozies

To enter to win: Tell me your family's favorite summer activity OR what you love most about going to the beach!

I think family get togethers picnics/cookout's are the best! We live by a state park so there's always lot's of fun things to do in the summer.
I love to watch the kids play together and I love watching the grown-ups play together as well :)
Everything about family being together is a Good Thing!
