Daylight Savings Timg Begins
One big event that will affect everyone is Daylight Savings Time on March 9th. Don’t forget to set your clock forward one hour before you go to bed on Saturday night, so you will wake up ready for a new day on Sunday with more sunshine (weather permitting)!

Explore and Enjoy Your Community

Tomball TX Depot

Have you been out and about in your community and acted like a visitor? Taken a stroll down Main Street, Any City, Any State, USA lately? If not, you really must give it a try.

I am a native Houstonian, but now reside in Tomball. Although we have been here for a little over a year and a half, we always find something new to do. Our community offers lots of festivals and community events that really make this city have that wonderful hometown feel. Check out the Tomball, TX website for local fun!

Our Main Street is made up of cute little shops that have antiques to handcrafted boots to high priced jewelry. On any given day you could get lost in the fun of taking a stroll and window shopping or going into a shop to browse. You could stop by the local barber and get a quick haircut. Find a cupcake shop and have a sweet treat. Swing by a dinner to grab a bite to eat. It seems no matter which place I wander into I am always surprised to find something new.

We often visit the historic Tomball Depot Plaza. It is a central location for the community. Many of the festivals take place at the Depot. Just today, we enjoyed the trail riders coming in to the Depot to rest in Tomball before heading on to their final destination – the Houston Live Stock Show and Rodeo Parade. It offers a large green space for the kids to run and play, a gazebo, the depot museum, a rail car to investigate, and a splash pad for those hot Texas days.

If you don’t like to stroll and get lost, try driving around your area. We have gone for drives and stumbled upon some fantastic parks that our kids enjoy. We make visits to the M.L.K. Jr. Park, Jerry Matheson Park, and Juergens Park on a regular basis. They are all well maintained and offer shade along with great playgrounds and picnic areas for the kids. When you have kids, you know you always need restrooms at the park. Lucky for us, every park we have been to has well maintained restrooms.

We have also happened upon some road signs that point out our local museums. It is our mission in 2014 to get there. We are still exploring our town and finding new things to do everyday. If you have not explored your community like a visitor, I highly recommend it!

The good thing is that our kids are young and will grow up in a city that has the hometown feel! Just one of the reasons I love Tomball.
