I love my hometown of Austin, Texas. Always have. And once I had a son, I grew to love it even more.
I try to spend every weekend doing something fun with my husband Jason, our son Sam, and all of our friends and family. And it’s an easy thing to do, because there’s always something going on in this town of ours. From concerts to camping, parks to parties — you never have to look far to find a little family fun.
Lots of sites are dedicated to events and activities around town — sites like Do 512 and 365 Things To Do In Austin, Texas will tell you all about what’s going on, and I use them all the time. But it’s hard to find sites for Austin parents just looking for a little family fun that might be off the beaten path.
Writing this blog is a natural fit for me — I’ve had an adults-only humor blog for three years, as well as a professional blog dedicated to my freelance writing and editing work. But there’s nothing I love writing about more than my beautiful son and our adventures together.
I want to use this site to chronicle some of our local discoveries, and to clue you in on upcoming events if I hear of them. I hope it will become a useful tool for my friends who are parents.
It’s a terrific place to raise a family! Now get out there and have some fun!
