Although they are often filled with kids' activities, friends' birthdays, yard work, and who-knows-what-else requiring you to play chauffeur, weekends are a treasured time for just about every family I know. Regardless of what my weekends with my kids...
When I first moved to San Antonio, I heard many sayings relating to the vastness of Texas, but this one sticks with me any time I get a wild hair and plan a vacation by car: “You can drive for...
Spring Break is coming…and hopefully sunnier, warmer days too.  Moms (and dads!), this month we've included several events for tweens and teens, so be sure to check those out. Just a few more weeks until Easter Sunday, which falls on April...
Hamilton Pool Preserve is probably one of the most impressive places to visit in Texas. You’ve probably come across photos of this natural wonder if you’ve done any googling about Texas watering holes or hidden treasures. Unfortunately, Hamilton Pool...
It’s hotter than…well, it’s pretty dang hot out there. My husband says that summer sneaked up on us this year. After the rain and the surprisingly mild spring days, it seems like everyone is feeling the heat, literally. Between my three-year-old...
It looms on the horizon whenever you’re facing downtown: familiar, recognizable and welcoming. But most of us never venture to the Tower of the Americas, leaving it for the tourists and overlooking it as a fun destination that puts...
I surprised my kids with our first dog right before Christmas last year. I grew up with a dog, but I’ve never had one as an adult, so it was certainly a learning curve for me. I probably would...
We’ve arrived at Yanaguana Garden, and I quickly spot an opening in the field big enough for my crew and our picnic blanket. Years ago, I might have hemmed and hawed about the best place to sit and view...
School’s out, and summer has kicked into high gear. Almost three months of bliss, right?? Wait, do you hear that? That is the collective groan of moms everywhere realizing that they have almost three months to fill when the sing-song...
This summer, get your family outside and take a hike! We don’t get out as nearly as often as we’d like, but we’ve managed to have some fun on the trails with our 15-month-old daughter. A nice and easy-ish place...
One of my favorite memories from childhood is getting in the car, cranking up the holiday music, and driving around with my family as we oohed and ahhed over twinkling holiday lights. With the holiday season upon us, I...
I have to be honest, it's taken me a while to wrap my brain around how I was going to put this post together. So many parks, so much fun and useful information, so many pictures—how do you narrow...
Pearsall Park, located on the city's southwest side at 4700 Old Pearsall Road, is now open! It's what I would call the "Hardberger Park of the Southside." Hardberger Park is 300 acres as is Brackenridge Park, making Pearsall Park...
One of my favorite things about San Antonio is that while we’re the seventh largest city in the United States, it never feels that way. You constantly run into people you know, or people who know people you know,...
