Things To Do With Your Family
Pumpkin Painting Saturdays
What: Bring the family for Pumpkin Painting, every Saturday, 10/10 thru 10/31! This year, we are signing families up for private 1/2 hour time slots to paint pumpkins, in order to clean between groups. For $2/pumpkin, you can grab your choice of mini pumpkin and let your creativity run free! Each pumpkin will come with a paintbrush that you get to keep, in order to keep the process sanitary. Fun for kids of all ages!

Food & Exercise Ideas
3 Ingredient Roast
- 1 3-4 lb boneless beef chuck roast
- 1 pkg Lipton onion soup mix
- 1 20 oz bottle Dr. Pepper (you only need half of this bottle for the recipe)
- Place roast in the bottom of a crockpot. Sprinkle onion soup mix over the top. Pour in half of the bottle of Dr. Pepper over the top. Place lid back on and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
- When roast is done, remove and allow to rest for a few minutes.
- If you want to make gravy, use a mesh strainer over a pot and strain the liquid from the crockpot into the strainer, reserving the liquid only.
- Measure half cup of flour with 2 cups of cold water and combine in the same pot as the roast drippings. Whisk over medium-high heat until gravy is thick, about 10 minutes.
- Serve the gravy over the roast and if you like mashed potatoes.
