As we are making our way through October there are a lot of things going on. What a difference a year makes. I mean after a year of nothing we now, more than ever, need to make sure we keep a calendar of events. If we don't we might miss out on something we really wanted to go to.
Looking at the calendar we have just under a month left of summer. In the summer we have so many fun outdoor activities to take advantage of. It is easier to stay fit because we are moving around a lot more.
The wait is about to be over. The pool at Thompson park is about to be open again. This has been one heck of a ride. It really has. Back in 2018 the news came out that due to safety concerns the pool at Thompson Park was closing.
My daughter was in town over the weekend. Since it was Father's Day we got to talking about our Mother's Day versus Father's Day plans every year. That moved us on to Wonderland since we always knew we would spend Mother's Day at Wonderland Park.
We have had a rough past year or so. In life things have been maybe not the easiest. As we are now getting back to a bit of a normal life. We are getting to go out and do fun stuff again and that makes us happy.
Every year the Amarillo Zoo sets aside a day to clean-up the creek and shoreline around the Thompson Park lakes. This is a big endeavor and they need all the help they can get. The more help, the quicker the clean-up goes. If you are looking for a volunteer project to help make one of our city parks more beautiful, then mark your calendars for Clean-Up Day.
