If you guys are like me, I see days off and think to myself I need to plan events. My son has so much energy that I need to harvest it!! Staying cooped up is not an option, he belongs outdoors! The weather is predicted to be..well…Texas weather. All seasons in one week. Here is a list of a few of our favorite things to do, inside and outside.
Kid & Mommy approved!!
San Marcos Wooden Playground
This is a HUGE playground, and very nicely shaded as well. It’s perfect because you don’t feel like you have to chase them all the way up to the top. Plenty of areas for them to run around. Perfect for picnics as well. Definitely a good option for Thursday or Friday, as those have the best scenarios for beautiful days. It’s in San Marcos, so worth the small drive.
In Rolling Oaks Mall there is a kids play place, Inflatable Wonderland. It’s surprisingly a really neat place. It has an area for older kids, toddlers, a food court and a huge theater area. I am very particular about cleanliness and have seen some horrendous places….but this one is nice. Always seems to be rearranged, which to me, makes me feel confident that there is nothing hiding around any corners! My little guy has loved this place for quite some time. In fact, this is where he walked for the first time! They have the coolest moon bounces. Makes me wish they had one for adults!
Lets face it, going out to eat with kids is virtually impossible. Trying to take bites of food, that is now cold, while your child is screaming and grabbing for the salt shaker, all while trying to tell the waitress that you need more napkins…many more napkins, is not the idea of fun. We have sworn off going out to eat so many times, yet we keep trying. One of our favorite places to take our son is Grimaldi’s. You wouldn’t think this place was kid-friendly, but i’ll tell you what did it for us. They brought out some dough for him to play with! On it’s own little pizza saucer. It was the neatest thing! He had a blast and while the food does take awhile to come out, that dough occupied him the entire time. What kid doesn’t love pizza! Great time to get creative with toppings and see what they like. Discovered my son likes Ricotta. He’s loves his cheese..:)
Enjoy your spring break!!
