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 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,...
For many of us, a road trip to a national park is a beloved ritual shared across generations—an all-American family vacation to places filled with natural beauty, world-changing history, and great childhood memories. Our national parks have always offered...
We’re staying put for Spring Break this year, but we’re not throwing a pity party. With the weather turning to spring earlier than usual, we’ve decided to get out, see more in our own city, and check out things...
I started geocaching with my kids a couple years ago during a brief go at homeschooling. We’ve continued tracking down caches since then, and it’s the perfect way to add an extra dose of excitement to our regular outings...
If you have been downtown recently, perhaps to catch a show at the Magik Theatre, you may have noticed that Hemisfair is in the process of being redeveloped. The park, which had seemed sort of hollowed out ever since...
