My project was to find free local activities for my husband and me, to do together over the next few months. I added the ones for this month that we wanted to do to our wall calendar. The ones that I found for other months I added to our facebook calendar so that I can go back later and decide what we would like to do.
To the calendar for April I added two library activities Stories from the Holocaust and a Dish and Dine. The Stories from the Holocaust should be an interesting event and our 19 yrs. son will be going with us. The Dish and Dine cookbook theme for the month is Not Your Mothers Casserole. You make a recipe from the book to share with other library patrons. I found a few Earth Day events, because I believe it’s important to take care of the earth God made for us. Time spent in God’s creation reveals the face of God. We will probably take our grandchildren with us to one of them since it’s geared toward children. I found a night hike series every other week in our local parks. The one event that I found that cost was free admission but you pay for restaurant vendor food sample, called Taste of Marysville. I went to the Beverly Lewis book signing yesterday with my daughter Nastasja. That makes 7 activities for the month for free or minimal cost. There are a few more but I don’t want to overload us with activities or choices.
We aren’t very strict about doing activities like this. We tend to decide if we want to go or not before the event and don’t stress if we decide we’d rather stay home or do something else. We haven’t attended many local events since the fall and wanted to do something together besides our normal go out to dinner date nights. We have family dinner every other Sunday. This month we celebrate our oldest daughter Brittany's 27th birthday. We will have a full month of family and local activities to entertain us.
