About Me

Mom, Writer, Photographer

Hi! I’m Addie and I love to have fun! I have written for local websites for the past 6 years and decided to start my own thing, so here I am. Welcome! I’m always out and about with my family, finding cool stuff to do, and then sharing it here with you.

I’m so grateful to be able to share my experiences with you, and love to play even a small part in helping you find fun things to do with your family.

Hope to see you out there having fun!

It’s officially park weather season! Here are a few of our favorites around town:
❤️ Walnut Creek Metro Park
💚 Katherine Fleischer in Wells Branch
💙 Creative Playscape in Georgetown
💚 Waterloo
🧡 Alliance Children’s Garden in Butler Park
🤎 Pease Park
💜 Play For All Abilities in Round Rock
💛 Balcones District Park
💚 Joanne Land Playground in Round Rock

@roundrockpumpkinfestival is now open in Round Rock!
At Old Settlers Park, right across from Dell Diamond
$5-10, 3 & under and seniors are free
Train rides, bounce house, corn pit, goats, lawn games

To be honest, the price is kind of high for what you get. However, it’s worth it if you live close by and don’t want to drive an hour for a pumpkin patch/festival experience.

@indianspringsranch pumpkin patch opens today! The thing that makes this patch unique is all the cool animals you get to see (and even feed)!
