Base activities

I am always so amazed at how many base activities there are to do. I find it difficult when people tell me they have nothing to do and don't like a particular base. I know every base is different BUT I typically can find several things a month to do with base activities.

This is a great way to meet new people and just get out of the house. My mom is visiting and so far we went to an Asian   Pacific Festival and had some free food from all over and watched a fashion show. Tomorrow our outdoor rec is holding an open house with free lunch plus activities, and it is spouses group get together then Friday is family Lua night.  Plenty for us to do and that is just in 2 weeks. That doesn't include any of the younger children activities they have with playgroup and the library or the youth center activities.

I know that if people don't go to the activities then they will stop having them so I try and support them for their benefit and mine.  It is great to take the kids to the family night and just let them hang out and then we play bingo for prizes. We have one a free inflatable rental twice now and always use them for the 4th of July.

So- I encourage you to check out whats the latest happenings on base. Our base has a website that lists all the activities available.  Of course I seem more involved in them since hubby isn't here. It helps me to feel closer to him when we are around other military members.

On another note.  I received a few more blog awards.

So true! I know the base here has canceled a few events due to nobody signing up and coming. Sad, but true. Thanks for sharing!

Awww thank you so much for the award!! I feel so special! =)

I always wondered about base activities (since I don't live on base yet and we might not as an end result) but I'll definitely have to check those out because the few times I've been on base we have participated in a couple of things. Hope you're doing well and having a good Monday!

I totally agree with you! We don't have base housing here so we don't live on base but there are so many things/activities to do on base, you just have to get out there. I have learned that those people who are constantly complaining that there's nothing to do in fact are those who do not want to do anything.

"I COMPLETELY agree with you. I don't want to fell obligated to follow every blog but I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings. That is why I do not do follow Fridays and such. I did do a military blog hop and enjoyed it."

Yeah I do not do follow fridays either. I do do blog hops occasionally because it's a great way to find new blogs, and be found, I just don't pressure people to follow me, nor do I feel pressured to follow them. Thanks for the comment! Have a wonderful day!
