Labor Day Round-Up

Happy Labor Day, Houston moms!

Fun fact :: Did you know that this holiday was first established to celebrate workers all throughout the United States?  Well…we can’t quite think of ANYONE who works harder than us moms – so by goodness, let’s CELEBRATE!  Here are TONS of ideas and resources to help you enjoy this day!  Ready?  Here we go…

  • With just a few weeks left of summer, it is the PERFECT opportunity to check off those last few things on our out of control summer bucket list…or take a cue from Bre and hit up one or two of the splash pads throughout Houston!
  • The long weekend also makes for a great opportunity to take a staycation or explore different parts of Houston that you might not typically visit.  Like a day trip to Beaumont with suggestions courtesy of Andrea or a walk all around The Heights like Bre!
  • Feel like just staying in and making this weekend low key?  We don’t blame you!  And my 20 creative indoor play activities will keep your kiddos busy for HOURS while you and the hubs sit back and relax.  Or you could use this time to do something nice for others with Jenn’s fun printable heat wave activity too!
  • Don’t forget that ice cold adult beverage to wash down all those yummy eats!  My suggestions?  Andrea’s top shelf margarita or my perfect white wine sangria!  Speaking of which, is it 5 o’clock yet???  Cause mama is ready for a drink after this long, crazy week!
  • Can’t forget about the kiddos!  Bring them in the kitchen with you to whip up Jessica and Sarah’s homemade popsicle recipes or Jana’s summer smoothie recipes!  They are both guaranteed crowd pleasers for kids and parents alike – plus, they are packed with fruits and veggies too!
  • Traveling west this long weekend?  Remember I’ve got a great guide to traveling San Antonio!  Or if you are headed somewhere else, be sure check and see if we have a sister site {just like HMB – but in a different city} there too!!

Phew!  Told you we got you covered.  We are off to make new memories with our little ones and soak up some sun now.  See ya tomorrow, mamas!!!

Kelly is the founder of Houston Moms Blog and has lived in this beautiful city nearly all of her life. She has a degree in education from Texas State University and was honored to teach special education for eight years to some of the cutest little kiddos you could ever meet. While teaching, Kelly met Cody – a tall drink of water and country boy to the core – and together, they fell in love, got married, and decided to start a family. In March 2011, they welcomed Hayes into the world, a silly but smart little boy with a story you have to read to believe. And in April 2013, their family was complete with the addition of Hadley, a super gregarious and oh-so-cute baby girl. Now, Kelly devotes her days to caring for her own little ones…and would not trade this new job of hers for the world! In her not-so-spare time, Kelly loves meeting up with her girlfriends for margaritas, failing miserably at Pinterest projects, and exploring this big old city with her two favorite little side-kicks in tow.
