1.Walk one of the many breathtaking trails at Chambers Creek. The bridge to the beach was closed after a recent train derailment, and I don’t know if it’s reopened, but there are miles of fun trails to explore if it hasn’t. It just reopened yesterday!
2.Do you have a can of soda pop and a box of cake mix? Did you know you can make fancy, yummy coca cola cupcakes (or any number of variations) with just those things? O.K…you need a couple of eggs. Don’t believe me? Check out Susannah’s Kitchen. My friend Jeanne also recommends white cake mix and Sprite. At least I think it was Jeanne. Your kids will think this is magic.
3.Hit open swim at Norpoint this afternoon (non members are 5.00) or a pool near you.
5.Head to Cabelas and ogle the giant, stuffed animals and feed the fish.
6.Want something a little more adventurous? How about the Sunrise Beach trails in Gig Harbor? Scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the description and directions, or try another trail in the Pierce County system.
7.Day trip! Head to Paradise and play in the snow (read all the scoop and check the snow report first).
8.Round everyone up for a trip to the Pt.Defiance zoo and watch the lagoon feed at 11:00.
9.Take the gang roller skating and show them some old school moves.
10.Wasn’t there some deal you bought a while back? Zoo or aquarium tickets? A kids’ museum membership? Passes to a bouncy house or go kart place? What are you waiting for? Go use it!
11.Do one thing you’ve been avoiding and feeling guilty about for weeks. Or not.
12.Relax and enjoy your family!
13.and one more bonus idea…..Head back to Sounds Fun Mom this evening and plan your week together! If you haven’t already, you might want to find out if your big kids have school tomorrow (it’s a teacher inservice day for many).
