  • 2018-19 Guide for Back to School Houston

    2018-19 Guide for Back to School Houston

    School Days, School Days Back to school time can be some of the most exciting and stressful times of the year. From the kid side you get to see friends again, maybe start at a new and unknown place, new clothes and binders – oh, my! From the parent side, it is the “return of the routine.”  Running with your kids (and breaking up bickering) all summer is great but so is the reliability of bedtime and knowing how to schedule each day. On the other side of that, now you have to prep to make sure backpacks are ready and lunches are made and kidsRead More →Read More »

  • Explore Big Bambù at MFAH!

    Explore Big Bambù at MFAH!

    Immersive Art The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH) invited us out to check out their immersive summer exhibit, Big Bambù! And, we were so excited to be able to walk into the reeds and surround ourselves with art! The exhibit is Mike & Doug Starn’s first indoor installation after numerous installations worldwide. The first thing you might notice about the work, once you take in its size, is the huge crest threatening to engulf the second-floor visitors wishing for a more intimate view.  It is a true dynamic between using the confines of an indoor space with materials and shapes that are so clearly natural.Read More →Read More »

  • Top 8 Things to do with Kids at MFAH

    Top 8 Things to do with Kids at MFAH

    Art for All The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH) is a world-class experience nestled in the oaks of our bustling and ever-improving museum district. Museums, particularly art museums have a certain aura. An air that sets them apart as a bit quiet, contemplative, and, perhaps, a bit intimidating.  Art can be intimidating.  The trick is to immerse yourself.  To know that it is just for you.  An artist may have borne a work and created something from nothing but it is you who decides how it will rest on your soul. Art is a gift to the soul. Art must be shared with children.Read More →Read More »

    Feelin’ Luckey at Baybrook Mall!

    Are You Feelin’ Luckey?! Last week Baybrook Mall became the third Houston area location to install a Luckey Climber.  They invited us out to check out its new digs and it is awesome! Not only did the mall install the Luckey Climber but they kid-scaped an entire play area just for little ones who may be in need of a shopping break. The day was beautiful but hot (but it is summer in Houston, so…).  The mall staff put on a great opening with some fun swag bags, a DJ, face painting, and a balloon artist.  When we arrived the line was already quite longRead More →Read More »

  • Summer Schooling Decisions & Hotel Transylvania

    Summer Schooling Decisions & Hotel Transylvania

    School is Out and the Kids are Free(ish)! The kids are excited. It’s hot and the routine has loosened, a bit.  But, as a parent, if you are like me, school is never very far from mind. While we are out and about I still have to try to formulate the perfect educational blend for my kids who just want to eat popsicles, swim, and play Xbox (pretty much on rotation). Frankly, parents do not get the summer off from school. We have to worry about retained information.  Should I pick up these bridging workbooks? We have to make sure the kids are getting their readingRead More →Read More »

    Houston July Garden Care

    July garden time! Who else is excited to get out there?! No?  It’s hot you say. Yeah. This is the time of year to pull weeds early in the morning or after a nice rain shower. It is hot and you need to be careful. If you managed to keep up with your weeding, hopefully it’s not too bad. I’m not gonna lie, we still have way more weeds than I care to admit. At this point if I get them before they flower and go to seed I call it a win! Aside from weekly mowing everything else should be pretty low maintenance orRead More →Read More »

    July 4th in Houston Where to see Parades, Fireworks, & More!

    It’s Independence Day! July 4th in Houston, how will you celebrate? If you are in the city you know discharging fireworks is illegal so you will need to find a great venue to spread out a picnic blanket and enjoy the holiday responsibly. If you are out side of the city check current burn bans and then practice common sense and safety.  If you want to save a little money and not have to worry about standing in lines at side of the road shacks then check out some options around town. Even if you are a die hard July 4th fireworks fanatic, there areRead More →Read More »
  • How Much Will Fortnite Cost You this Summer?

    How Much Will Fortnite Cost You this Summer?

    Why Can Kids Can Stare at a Screen for a Fortnite? Fortnite is the “It” girl of the gaming world this summer.  Even if your kids are not playing it there is no doubt they know about it…and probably want to be playing it. The game is explosively popular because it is available on most platforms (except Android, but that is in the works). And, they can actually play across platforms. No longer does it matter if everyone has an Xbox or PlayStation. Oh, yeah, and you can play for free! The fiscal side of raising kids can be death by a thousand cuts.  Everything costsRead More →Read More »

  • Greatest Recycling Project Ever! Houston’s Beer Can House!

    Greatest Recycling Project Ever! Houston’s Beer Can House!

    Vision or Happenstance?  Who knows but the Beer Can House is Houston Art Just south of Houston’s trendy Heights area, a smidgen west of the runners in Memorial Park, and a bit north of the old money is a quirky part of town home to some of Houston’s best off-the-beaten path art, the Beer Can House. Back in the late seventies the world’s best wife’s husband, John Milkovisch retired and began spending his free time crafting the Beer Can House.  He was a man who hated waste and didn’t want to bother with yard work.  So, one project at a time morphed a small traditionalRead More →Read More »
