Best Ballpark for Kids: Frisco RoughRiders

Take the entire family out to the ballgame! Here are a few of our favorite Frisco RoughRiders kids activities to delight the youngest fans.June 29, 2017

We recently moved to the burbs from an urban Dallas dwelling and I have to admit that life “up north” has been pretty amazing. Every restaurant, shop, park, and family friendly attraction is within a few miles and guess what, there’s ample parking!

One of our favorite perks about suburbia is living near Dr. Pepper Ballpark in Frisco. We are a baseball-loving family but more importantly, we are true Texas Rangers fans. We enjoy “catching” a Frisco RoughRiders minor league baseball game as a family whenever we can.

Reading About Dad is Rad!

Dad is a pretty cool guy, isn't he? Dads are rad and so are childrens books about dads. Here's a roundup of our favorites, just in time for Father's Day!June 15, 2017

Dad is a pretty cool guy, isn’t he? If you could witness how my 3 year old dashes to the door when her father gets home from work every night, you’d smile from ear to ear. We’re big book people over here and we just so happen to think that children’s books about dads are awesome. When I was growing up, there weren’t a lot of books about fathers but times have changed for the better! My daughter loves to read about daddies. Her current favorite is the “My Daddy and I’ by P.K. Hamilton. She giggles about the activities that the children in the book do with their father. With Father’s Day coming up, we thought it’d be fitting to share some of our favorite dad centered books with you.

Drool Worthy Chicken Skewers!

Teriyaki Chicken SkewersJune 6, 2017

It’s skewer season and this Asian version is totally drool worthy. It has marinated white meat chicken, fresh pineapple, bell peppers, red onion and my favorite egg rolls placed on skewers and topped with the sweetest teriyaki glaze your mouth has ever tasted. Total winner! It was a dream to photograph with all of those vibrant colors and my family loved it.
