Bring Back the Family Picnic this Memorial Day Weekend

Katy Families can enjoy the beautiful outdoors with cool family time

This Memorial Day Weekend don’t stress about finding the right Houston area event for you and your family. You can stay right here in Katy and have lots of family fun time and for little cost. Unfortunately, since I’m seven months pregnant I’m avoiding the outdoors like the swine flu but this great weather is the perfect time for families to get out. Get your kids away from the video game systems and computers and outside!

Pack a picnic basket. Get the family involved in making sandwiches that they will like, chips and cookies, etc. Take an old blanket and pick a local park or school playground for your picnic location. Plan ahead some fun activities. Take a football to throw, a kite to fly or a board game. But don’t forget the sunblock!!

Looking for some new ideas to brighten up your picnic basket cuisine? Look online for recipes. The Food Network is always a great place to start, http://www.foodnetwork.com/. Another one of my quick recipe finding sites is Williams-Sonoma, http://www.williams-sonoma.com/. Just click to recipes and you will be amazed at what you can find.

If the weather gets to warm for you don’t forget to get in the pool! Either your own or go find a community pool for some splashing fun. If you want to go out don’t forget to visit http://www.lacenterra.com/ to see what is happening on their event calendar. Today and tomorrow nights you can find live music at the Baker Street Pub. Be creative and look around our town Katy. There is always something fun to do.

If you do go with the picnic idea take pictures to immortalize your family outing and enjoy the time together. With summer camps and activities summer time quickly can become just another hectic season where families do not get to spend as much time together as they should. Take this opportunity and enjoy the time together. What is your family doing this holiday weekend? Share it with us in a comment!
