Beach Day Trip and Hometown visit

I never knew what an amazing beach we had until we had kids. Growing up, when we visited the coast we came to go crabbing in the shallow areas under bridges, fishing off a very long pier or to visit the market for fresh fish and crabs. I don’t ever remember playing in the sand…

Fourth of July Weekend 2021

Road trips with kids are not for the weary. Our second trip in our newly acquired recreational vehicle (RV) has been very memorable to say the least. We planned on traveling northwest to the beautiful hill country where the Guadalupe River winds through small towns and is shaded by giant cypress trees. What is normally…

My favorite things for Camping

Our family goes camping year round. During the summer months we camp in areas that are more north. Last year we camped the Grand Canyon with an eight year old, six year old and a five month old baby. We added a few more travel necessities to our list that are a must have for…

Lake Houston Wilderness Park Tent Camping

When I think of camping, my goal is to get out of the city away from the hustle and bustle. Imagine my surprise when we found an amazing camping spot only 30 minutes from our home in The Woodlands. Lake Houston Wilderness Park is the only overnight camping park in the Houston Parks and Recreation…
