Art Fest Gets an A; Bluebonnet Season

Today, we went to the Bayou City Art Festival and had a great time. There were so many artists from across the U.S. and they really had so much for us to look at. My almost year-old daughter liked walking around Memorial Park and seeing all the people. For $8, this is a great annual activity for the whole family. For kids 2 and up, there are fun activities including painting your lucky rock, making masks and even dipping your hand into wax to make a replica of your own hand! (Kids must be at least 6 years old to do the wax project.) And the park & ride system ran smoothly and was no extra charge. Now we're looking forward to the art festival next fall in downtown.

It's bluebonnet season in Houston. Don't miss your chance to take photos of your little ones in the blue fields around us. These will make great Easter greetings to family & friends. Not sure where to go? There are several spots in Memorial Park showing bluebonnets. Alternatively, try the feeder of Loop 610 North & TC Jester by the Boy Scouts of America building. If you're interested in taking a drive, the bluebonnets are in full bloom off Highway 290 and Highway 6 in Hempstead. While you're there, head to the Blue Bell Creamery in Brenham for a refreshing snack!

Until the next nap time...
