San Antonio Zoo

Zoos are definitely busy in the summer. I haven’t found one day out of the week to go when they aren’t busy. We visited the San Antonio Zoo on a Thursday. We arrived at 11:00 and the first parking lot was full so we had to park in a second lot. The walk was quite [...]

The KidFish Experience

Saturday morning I woke up the boys early so we could be at Lake Pflugerville by nine. I wanted to be there when it first started because I didn’t know what to expect. When we arrived it wasn’t too crowded. We turned in our registration form and then proceeded to get poles and bait. KidFish [...]

SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration

We went to Sea World in San Antonio on Friday and had a blast.  I’m already in the Christmas spirit and going to Sea World enforced it more.  We first went to see the dolphins and fortunately it was feeding time.  We paid $5 for four fish.  It was worth it.  When feeding the dolphins [...]

No Room For Pets

Anyone who has children and pets I give my full support to them. I honestly can’t do it. My boys really want a dog, but I know I can’t handle another task. It took me a whole hour to clean out a betta fish bowl and that was more than enough for me. Sad, right? [...]
