Two days left to see the free Dinosaur George exhibit

You’ve got just two days left to visit an amazing, free exhibit sponsored by KLRN and North Star Mall: Dinosaur George’s Museum in the Classroom.

Thanks to San Antonio mom bloggers Geekette Bits and A Thrifty Diva, I learned that LEGO KidsFest is coming to Austin at the end of this month (be sure to visit their sites and subscribe – they’re giving away tickets to the event!).

Howdy, partners. There’s a new “Cowboy Museum” in town.

My kids love the Witte Museum. But they don’t call it that. The name they give it depends upon the most recent special exhibit they’ve seen there. For a time it was the “Dinosaur Museum.” After that they referred to the Witte as the “Bug Museum,” and then the “Fish Museum,” and, most recently, the “Pirate […]

We considered several different locations when planning our Winter trip. Great Wolf Lodge appealed to us primarily because we didn’t have to fly to get there and it’s completely family-friendly, which is […]
