Spending time with family is just as important now as it has always been. Given our current economy it's become even more important to be mindful of your budget. I enjoy introducing my kids to new things. Did you know that our local Houston musems offer free days. The free days are typically offered on Thursdays, with the times differing depending on the museum. Even the zoo has a free day.
