About Me & My Family

I am a mom of 3 wonderful little boys (one with special needs), a beautiful baby girl, and am married to the man of my dreams. I am very interested in incorporating learning into activities that we do, so a trip to the beach turns into a school field trip. Recently, we moved back to California after a brief move to Texas and feel blessed to be able to be involved in all facets of Christian Camping. Because my husband and I serve in full time ministry, we're lucky to be able to spend a lot of time around each other and our family, having exciting adventures and just living life, day by day. :)
Our Family's Travel Personality
adventurous, curious, structured, relaxed, independent, energetic, spontaneous, easy_going, scheduled, artsy
We Just Got Back From
Japan, Lake Tahoe, Camp! (Not on the same trip though) :)
Our Favorite Vacation Spot
Anywhere new where discoveries can be made! We're pretty frugal, so budget traveling is definitely the way we go. However, occationally, we do love to splurge too! :)
A Place We'd Love To Visit
Austrailia to scuba dive the barrier reef, a zero-gravity flight to experience weightlessness, ziplining and exploring a rainforest, exploring the vast glaciers in Alaska, just to name a few!
Favorite Vacation Memory
It's completely simple, but watching our 6 year old get selected to be a Jedi Knight at Disneyland. It's his "lifelong" dream and still today when someone asks him what he's going to be someday, he proudly answers, "A Star Wars Guy!"
Worst Travel Moment With My Kids:
Right after checking into our hotel, my 4 year old threw up in the middle of the floor on the carpet, all over his jammies, his lovey, and on his little brother. Thankfully, the hotel we were staying in had a laundromat that was open late, so a few hours later, and after some carpet scrubbing, everything was cleaned up and like new.

Your children's imaginations will "blast off" with fun facts and an understanding of space in one of the top space centers! Kids will love the hands on interactive exhibits as well as the large Playscape. Make sure to try some Astronaut Ice Cream before you leave!

Houston's Zoological Gardens has been recently revamped and is neat, manicured, and fun. Kiddos will enjoy the petting area, the elephants, and the play area too, to name a few. Take your lunch and have a picnic on the grass!

Keep cool in the HOT Texas sun by visiting the Aeros Hockey team in Houston! Chilly, the team's mascot, walks around the arena and keeps kids engaged and cheering for Houston's favorite Hockey team.

Comment:
If you want to get up close and personal with dinosaurs, visit the Houston Museum of Natural Science! They have docents available to answer questions and give tours too.
