in Checking In

Busy day ahead

There’s a lot going on around town this weekend, particularly today. We’re heading over soon to Mordecai Historic Park for its first annual “Blast from the Past” day. Re-enactors in period garb will be wandering around the park, leading tours. There’ll be music, kids activities, free tours of the house, and the most popular attraction – free trolley rides around town! As a boardmember at Mordecai, it will be my chance to see what the public thinks of our work.

Today is also the first day of Artsplosure, the city’s annual arts festival. We’ll wander around the downtown streets, checking out all of the art, music, and festivities. It should be a great time, and as long as the weather stays dry it should be an ideal day to see everything.

This afternoon the kids are heading over to their very first sleepover, leaving Kelly and I with our first 24 hours alone in a long while. We plan to head back to Artsplosure to hear Buckwheat Zydeco play at 8 PM. After that we may wander around downtown and take in some of the nightlife. It should be a fun-filled day!
