With summer just a few weeks away, families are going to want to forgo the indoors in favor of spending time outside. While your family may have a few vacations planned, there really is nothing better than spending time relaxing in your own backyard and creating lasting memories with your children.

Luckily, Walmart has everything parents need to create an oasis right in their very own outdoor space. From swings to firepits (and even stylish storage solutions), here are eight ways busy parents can create the backyard of their dreams!

You gotta catch 'em all! The highly anticipated live action film, Pokémon Detective Pikachu hits theaters on May 10th, and fans are already eager to get their hands on movie merchandise. But what keeps kids and parents so passionate about the famous Japanese characters? "The ever-expanding Pokémon franchise has been a beacon for kids and kids at heart since the original video games launched more than 20 years ago," says J.C. Smith, Senior Director of Consumer Marketing of The Pokémon Company International. "Since its introduction, the beloved animation series, the ever-popular Pokémon Trading Card Game, Pokémon GO and a wide variety of video games and apps have offered fans a variety of ways to engage with our iconic collection of Pokémon like Pikachu. With its family-friendly messages of sportsmanship, friendship and community, Pokémon is a brand that parents know and trust."
It is this reason that longtime gaming fans and new Pokémon lovers are buzzing about the soon-to-be-released feature film. "Pokémon is on the same level as Super Mario Bros. and Pac-Man," adds James Zahn, Toy Expert and Senior Editor of The Pop Insider. "It's never gone away, and it's constantly being reinvented to stay fresh and relevant. When Detective Pikachu was announced, there was a collective eyebrow raised at the prospect of Ryan Reynolds playing a version of the iconic yellow creature. When that first trailer hit, audiences could see exactly why he's perfect for the part. It's so absurd that it's genius. This will be a great chance for parents and kids to connect at the movies." And for those die-hard fans, we've rounded up the latest Pokémon launches and hot-sellers that will soon be flying off store shelves. We guarantee that super-sleuth Pikachu fans won't have to search hard to find these fun pieces!

Both warm mist and cool mist humidifiers can provide allergy relief, it's up to personal preference which you choose to use.

A bestselling, groundbreaking author investigates successful long term marriages, interviewing wives and their uncensored strategi...es for staying married.America's high divorce rate is well known. But little attention has been paid to the flip side: couples who creatively (sometimes clandestinely) manage to build marriages that are lasting longer than we ever thought possible. What's the secret? To find out, bestselling journalist Iris Krasnow interviewed more than 200 wives whose marriages have survived for 15 to 70 years. They are a diverse cast, yet they share one common and significant trait: They have made bold, sometimes secretive and shocking choices on how to keep their marital vows, "till death do us part," as Krasnow says, "without killing someone first."In raw, candid, titillating stories, Krasnow's cast of wise women give voice to the truth about marriage and the importance of maintaining a strong sense of self apart from the relationship. Some spend summers separately from their partners. Some make time for wine with the girls. One septuagenarian has a recurring date with an old flame from high school. In every case, the marriage operates on many tracks, giving both spouses license to pursue the question "Who am I apart from my marriage?" Krasnow's goal is to give women permission to create their own marriages at any age. Marital bliss is possible, she says, if each partner is blissful apart from the other.A fascinating window on the many faces of modern relationships, The Secret Lives of Wives brims with inspiring and daring examples of women who have it both ways: a committed marriage and personal adventures in uncharted territory. For anyone who wants to stay married and stay sane, this is the book to read! read more

The Many Lives of Sarah Hausman is a tale of high hope and dreams gone sour, of love found and love lost.

She accepts the challenges set before her and is reborn as Judith Ann. Shes returning to earth with a mission. Judith Ann must rescue the soul of her former husband, Marcus Agrippa, whom she deeply loved in an earlier life in Ancient Rome. The rewards Sarah gains or loses in her next life on earth will be what she takes with her into eternity.Many books have been written on the subject of reincarnation, but few as fiction. Janet Denses search for the truth behind the mysteries of life began when an acquaintance gave her a book called The Search for Bridie Murphy.This fueled a life-long quest to study the subject of reincarnation, beginning with the work of Edgar Cayce. However she soon parted company with Cayce and the prevailing notion that a soul must live an endless series of lives in order to reach a level of perfection sufficient to enter heaven. This view precludes a belief in the saving grace of Christ. The many Lives of Sarah Hausman merges Christian doctrine with a belief in reincarnation.Who among us has not wondered why some are born into lives of good health and luxury, while others begin and end their lives in poverty and adversity? This enigma is explored through the life of seventeen-year-old Sarah Hausman.

They have a brief love affair, which leaves her unwed and pregnant when Ralph leaves to join the Army.Sarah follows him to California only to discover he is engaged to someone else. A series of dreams reveal to Sarah that she and Ralph have shared at least four previous lives beginning in Ancient Egypt, then 300 years later in Rome, again as a Scottish maid in the Middle Ages, and finally when they were Mandan Indians in the early 1800s. After the loss of her baby, Sarah heads to Los Angeles, where she is hired by Mack Sennett of Keystone Studios. A short-lived marriage ends in tragedy when her husband is gunned down by mobsters. The story ends with Sarah standing before the Angelic court as she is given instructions for her new life. read more
