Flagstop Cafe in Boerne Texas

When we first moved to San Antonio it was like we were on a permanent vacation. There were so many amazing places to eat and we wanted to try them all. Since we lived in San Antonio, which in my opinion is the heart of the best Mexican food around, often times we'd eat at little Mexican food establishments and devour breakfast tacos and beans, eggs, and tortillas. One morning for breakfast, we decided to venture outside of San Antonio into Boerne, Texas. As we drove, we saw an Exxon gas station that had a cafe inside. In my opinion, these are normally the best places that serve breakfast so we decided to stop and check out the Flagstop Cafe in Boerne Texas, which my 9-year-old has renamed The Boerne Cafe. One thing that I love about … [Read more...]

Our Trip to Kiddie Park

Before school ended, I stocked up on some kid friendly Groupons so that I could keep my kids busy during the summer while also saving money on local activities. One Groupon I purchased was for Kiddie Park located in San Antonio, Texas. My girls had previously been to Kiddie Park 1 or 2 times, but my youngest daughter and my granddaughter were too little to remember. I'd love to share our trip to Kiddie Park along with some helpful tips if you decide to take your little ones. Kiddie Park is the oldest children's museum in the country. It was established in 1925 and was renovated in 2009.

Wrap Up Your Summer with Main Events Summer FUNpass

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Main Event, all opinions are my own.  Right before school started, I wanted to give my girls one last fun filled day before they headed back to the grind.

Aquatica at SeaWorld in San Antonio

I was provided complimentary tickets to Aquatica SeaWorld in San Antonio to share my family's experience. I have, for the most part, avoided water parks because my girls can't swim well and I have always thought that water parks were too big for my girls. When SeaWorld provided me with complimentary tickets to their Aquatica water park I was skeptical but I was willing to give it a try and when I told my girls that we were invited to Aquatica at SeaWorld in San Antonio they were excited. The first thing I noticed when my family walked into Aquatica were the bright and fun colors. The ambiance of colors made it so much fun. The next thing I noticed was the wide variety of water fun! There were big fast slides and slides that were nice … [Read more...]
