This summer Miguel and William are attending Camp Mommy. I’ve always enjoyed planning fun activities for us, and after looking at the price of camps x2 I decided it would be more fun (and less expensive) to be the sole person responsible for the boys’ entertainment. I “splurged” on our usual summer swim membership at The Verandah Club, and honestly it was the best money I could have spent because we are there almost every afternoon.

We started summer off with a bang! We travelled with Miguel’s entire family to Miami for a Carnival cruise over Memorial Day weekend, came home to Dallas and Sweetie came to visit for five days, and then Miguel and I took the boys to Aruba for a week. Aruba was a huge hit and is my favorite island by far to visit. Pictures of our Aruba trip will be coming!

I’ve compiled (it’s a work in progress) a list of places I want to visit with the boys this summer….Our Bucket List!

Boy Scout museum---Done!

Ham’s Orchard

Dallas Zoo

Fort Worth Zoo

Fort Worth Children’s Museum

McKinney Avenue Trolley

Frisco’s SciTech Museum

Pump It Up

Miniature Golf


Forth Worth's Currency Facility Tour

Fort Worth Stockyards

So far, this summer, the boys went on their first cruise, travelled to Aruba, spent countless hours at the pool, watched Madagascar 3, visited the Boy Scout museum, baked monster cookies, re-discovered the joys of playdoh, and had a few play dates with friends.

We joined Miguel’s entire family for a short cruise over Memorial Day weekend. It was a chance for everyone to visit and meet a couple of the younger cousins who have made their debut since our last family reunion in May 2007. The cruise was fun, but I think it will be a long while before Miguel and I cruise again with the boys.
