Fun ideas for the warm weather
By Heather Maile
April 24, 2008 | With this semester finally winding
to an end we will all have a little bit more spare time.
So get off that couch and enjoy the upcoming warm weather.
Here are some ideas for cheap entertainment:
- Get some friends together and have a potluck barbeque.
Everyone provides their own meat and brings something
else along to share with everyone. Itís a good idea
to keep in mind that whoever is planning it needs to
make sure that there will be plates and utensils for
the food, also drinks. So if someone doesnít know what
to bring you could assign those things out. Youíre sure
to have plenty of food and laughter.
- Take advantage of all of our beautiful public parks.
A local favorite is the Lundstrom Park at around 1300
North and 1500 East in Logan . There is plenty of room
to play any team sport such as: football, baseball,
soccer, ultimate Frisbee, steal the flag, beach volleyball,
and many more. Also, parks are a great place to set
up smaller games such as: croquet, ladder golf and horse
shoes. Pack up a picnic and donít forget the kites to
spend a fun filled day in the fresh air!
- Read a book outside, try to find somewhere with
peace a quiet (possibly up the Logan Canyon) where you
can just get absorbed into your book and enjoy the serenity
of nature. Another relaxing spot is in a comfortable
chair or hammock out in a the warm sun. This is also
a great time to reflect on your own thoughts, you may
want to have a journal handy.
- Exercise. Go for a jog on the beautiful river walk
trail in South Logan. Take a nice bike ride through
Sardine or Logan Canyon. Go hiking or rock climbing.
The possibilities are endless just be sure to be prepared
Hopefully, we can all enjoy the beautiful Logan weather
that is just around the corner.
