    One of our favorite things to do during the Summer is to head out to our local park and have picnics together as a family.  We live near the largest park in New York City and, since it also doubles as a nature preserve, it boasts some beautiful grounds that are perfect for enjoying the great outdoors.  Not only is this a great opportunity to spend time together, but it is also very affordable since we only have to take some snacks and drinks with us to enjoy while we are out.

    As many of you know, our family enjoys planning activities together like the Frito-Lay and Skylanders® home gaming party that we hosted last month.  Not only did we have a lot of fun as a family and enjoyed some great snacks, but we also voted for our favorite next Skylanders® Game character.  Now Frito-Lay is giving fans the opportunity to bring Skylanders® characters to life with an amazing augmented reality experience through the free mobile app Blippar.

    We are so excited to have this chance to possibly win the following great prizes that we could enjoy together just like we enjoy our picnics at the park:

  • An exclusive, limited-edition translucent version of the Skylanders® character Fire Bone Hot Dog.
  • A Skylanders® Game Truck Party that will roll out to the house of one lucky fan!

    Our boys would enjoy hours of fun outdoors playing with Fire Bone Hot Dog.  Also, if we won the Skylanders® Game Truck Party we could get together with the rest of our family and our friends, and have a huge gathering!  It’s so easy to enter that any family can do it.

    Now through September 5th, one lucky fan will be chosen every 15 minutes to win 1 Fire Bone Hot Dog figure.  Additionally, you can enter for the chance to win the Game Truck Party through the Blippar app until August 15!
