Hyatt Regency Lost Pines New Years Eve Event
Earlier this week, I told y'all all about the fun you could have as a family out at the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines.  A Jamboree, Wagon Rides, S'Mores, and fireworks are just a small hint of the fun you could have.

Create Your Own Fun!
As there is not much to do that is family friendly on New Year's Eve here in Austin, why not create your own fun?  Pick a fun restaurant as a family and go check out those lights you were unable to get to during the Christmas week.  Many listed here are still on through January 1!

Commitment Day
This multi-city event is about starting a movement to commit to a healthier lifestyle.  Everyone is invited to participate in this downtown 5K (kids included- free) starting at 10 am on New Year's Day.  It's a pretty cool event happening nationwide and a great way to kick off 2014!
