dinner outside

With the beautiful spring weather, my teenage son asked if we could eat outside tonight. What a great way to spend a family dinner. Good food, good company, and good weather! It feels good to have the sun shining down, not too hot, not too cold. Seems like kids never outgrow the simplicity of a picnic!

burgers and blues

Discovery Green in Houston has lots of family activities. Many are free. On Wed. March 17 you can come out to the Green and listen to live blues music. While there you can enjoy burgers and other items purchased from the Lake House Restaurant. This week's music will be put on by the Milton Hopkins Band on the Anheuser-Busch Stage. The fun starts at noon. Weekly concerts go through April 12.

buying a television

Our television has been out for some time. When looking at them we decided we could not afford one at the time. However, with us being gone for a while, we were able to save the grocery money that would normally have been spent. So I am now thinking that a good family night activity would be for us to go pick out a new tv. We like to watch tv nearly every day, though our tastes in what to watch varies! My husband and son especially like to watch and lately, with a couple of teens hanging around, we spend many evenings watching television together. It seems that since it has become a common family event, it would be a good idea to pick out a new tv together.
