Valentine's Day is coming up this weekend.  Cupid's holiday is no longer just for lover's, it's for everyone, adult and child alike.  This year make Valentine's Day a spectacular treat for the whole family by exploring your city.

Lafayette offers many fun and unique experiences for families to enjoy.  Vermillionville has Gerard Delafose - And the Zydeco Gators at  1pm with music and dancing you can't go wrong.  Lafayette Natural History Museum and Planetarium is open from 1pm to 6pm on Sunday and offers showtimes at 1:30, 2:45, and 4.  A great place to expand your child's interest in all things scientific.  Have lunch at Incredible Pizza then spend the afternoon playing indoor mini golf, bowling, bumper cars, and games.  Perfect for all ages.  Catch a movie at one of the Grand Theaters where Alvin and the Chipmunks, the Tooth Fairy, and Percy Jackson are all playing this weekend.

Spending the day at home with you children can be just as enjoyable as going out.  Bake a batch of cookies and allow your kids to frost and decorate them.  Make homemade Valentines for friends and family out of construction paper, glitter, paint, stickers, or anything else in your art and craft cabinet. Strawberries dipped in chocolate offer a tasty, healthy treat.  Simply melt semi-sweet or white chocolate chips, dip the strawberries, then place on parchment paper to harden.  Decorate with red and pink streamers and flowers to add a festive touch.

Regardless of whether you stay in or go out, it's easy to make Valentine's Day special for everyone in the family.
