Summer Trip – Seaworld San Antonio ( Momimhar posted on July 3rd, 2015 )

Hello everyone!  Hello, month of July.  🙂  Me and family got very busy the last week.  We went to Seaworld San Antonio and Schlitterbahn New Braunfels.  It’s been five years since the last time my husband and I had a trip to San Antonio.  That was before baby.  This time, we have K with us.  We wanted her to see the Shamu Show and Clyde and Seymore, the sea lions.  With her fascination with sea creatures, our darling daughter had a wonderful time at Seaworld.  Her favorite attractions at Seaworld were the Shamu Show, Clyde and Seymore – Sea Lion High, and the Journey To Atlantis Ride.  We got soaking wet at the Shamu Show because we were sitting in the splash zone, really close to the tank.  That was really fun.

After the Shamu Show, we walked towards the Flamingo spot.  Here K met a new friend and they fed the flamingos and the ducks together.  My daughter is a social butterfly.

When she finished feeding the Flamingos, my hubby let me and K ride the Shamu rollercoaster for kids.  Boy, she wanted to ride that again and again.  But we got very hungry so we had a late lunch.  Full from lunch, we walked to the next attractin – Clyde and Seymore Sea Lion High.  It was a comedy show.  We had so much fun laughing and of course, got splashed again.

Last but not the least attraction we experienced was the Journey To Atlantis.  At first, K didn’t want to go try to ride.  She just wanted to get wet in the huge splash of water as the carriage went down.  That was so much fun, too.

Saving Money On Taking Your Kids To A Nature Park ( Momimhar posted on February 8th, 2013 )

Finding something different to do with children can be difficult, especially if yours are different ages. A day out at a nature park or reserve could be just perfect. All kids are interested in nature, and most of them also like to be out and about. It needn’t be an expensive outing either.

Great Days out That Cost Less

Choosing a visit to a nature park is the perfect way to amuse bored kids and to let them run off all that excess energy. Many parks will even let you take the dog if you have one so the whole family can enjoy time out together. Costs can mount up when there are a few of you, but choosing to use a discount voucher allows you to enjoy a great outing at a fraction of the normal cost. Definitely worth looking into, there are several great offers available which help to keep costs down for young families.

Why Choose A Nature Park?

A nature park is the ideal choice for children of all ages. There’s such a lot to see and do and they normally have many interactive features or hands on experiences which everyone can join in with. It lets you teach your little ones something about the environment and the world we live in too. Perfect for enquiring young minds. All the space and fresh air is good for everyone, and they can run about to their hearts content in a safe area. Many nature parks and reserves have excellent environmentally aware playgrounds too, and often include swings, slides and other child friendly rides made from materials to be found in the park.

How To Find A Nature Park Near You

Most states have nature parks and reserves, large and small, which are easy to get to and which highlight aspects of your local region. Look online, or in your school or library for ideas, and keep an eye open for parks which have a discount voucher scheme so that you can keep the expense to a minimum.

Keep a Record

A nature park day out is a really special and exciting option when you have children. Try to plan ahead so that your kids are excited and look forward to the big day. Perhaps keep a scrapbook or album to which they can add photos and notes or pictures about what they hope to see before they go. When you return, you can let them add to it. A great way to keep them interested for a long time.

Summer Vacations in Orlando Are Great For Families ( Momimhar posted on June 8th, 2012 )

By Alexandra Jacobs

For a summer vacation, nothing beats Orlando and Walt Disney World for families. Summer is a great time to visit Orlando, with warm, sunny weather. It is catered to families, and offers a variety of activities that parents and kids alike can enjoy. Wait until later in the summer to get Hamptons Rentals, or travelling to the Cape, and spend the beginning of your summer in Orlando.

Disney World

One of the reasons families from around the world flock to Orlando is to visit Walt Disney World Resort. Walt Disney World consists of four different theme parks – Epcot, Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom Park, and Hollywood Studios. The resort also offers two water parks, Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon.

offers shows, interactive experiences, and a chance to experience cultures from around the world right in Orlando. For a fantasy experience in one of the seven lands of enchantment, families can have the time of their lives at Magic Kingdom. Animal Kingdom Park gives families the opportunity to watch and interact with real, live animals, in addition to experiencing live
shows and unique attractions. Meanwhile, Hollywood Studios offers all the glitz and glamour of Hollywood in a family-friendly setting. For the maximum amount of fun and enjoyment, families should allow at least one full day to experience each of Walt Disney World’s four theme parks.

Walt Disney World Resort has a variety of accommodations to choose from right on the resort grounds. The resort offers a number of great deals on hotels throughout the year. Families should check the Disney World website periodically for the most up-to-date prices. Just outside of Disney World are hundreds of other hotels, so it’s easy to find somewhere else to stay
if staying inside the resort isn’t the preferred option. Five nights and four days is about the minimum amount of time needed to fully enjoy Disney World.


While it may be its most visited attraction, there’s more to Orlando than just Disney World. Families planning on spending a week in Orlando may consider spending five of their nights at the resort, and the remaining two discovering all there is to see and do in and around Orlando. If the adults aren’t tired of theme parks yet, Orlando has LEGOLAND Florida, Universal Orlando, and Sea World Orlando.

For more adult activities, Orlando has plenty of dining and nightlife. The city offers a variety of cuisine from all over the globe, perfect for all budgets and palates. Parents looking for a night out without the kids may want to consider Victoria & Albert’s or Chatham’s Place for a romantic evening in Orlando. For a dinner that the kids will love, families should try Yellow Dog Cafe, Padrino’s Cuban Bistro, Sweet Tomatoes, and TooJay’s Deli, all of which are great for adults and kids.
