Week of / October 20-26, 2014 / Ft.Worth

     This is the event that my family has been waiting for all year long and I can't wait to share it with you. Its not the State Fair. Get ready for the coolest, fastest, family-friendly adventure!

Ft. Worth

1.  Grab your ear plugs, wagons, camp chairs and binoculars and head over to the Alliance Air Show at the Alliance Airport in Ft. Worth. This is an event that you should mark on your calendar for next year and the year after because every family member will enjoy the show. The highlight of this year's show will be the United State Air Force Thunderbirds. In addition, there will be many other performers in the air and static displays on the runway to enjoy. Be prepared to walk because the static displays (featuring military and private aircraft) will be spread along the airport. There will be something for everyone to enjoy.

*Admission is FREE, but parking will be $30 dollars. Buy tickets in advanced online for a $5 dollar discount. 
*I recommend bringing ear plugs for the little's. 

Ft. Worth

1.  This weekend is all about being outdoors in FT. Worth. So take the family and go down to West 7th street in downtown Ft. Worth. This is a thriving neighborhood with great family entertainment. The Kids will enjoy going to the Movie Tavern to check out some flicks like The Book of Life or Alexander and the terrible. For some good eats, Thirteen Pies has great artisan pizza, or if you are feeling adventurous grab a bite at Terra Mediterranean.

Week of / October 13-19, 2014 / Dallas - Irving

            Festival!  Festival! Festival !

 Get ready to be apart of the DFW metro-plex community. With two festivals that will cater to both the meat and the vegetarian eaters! Both festivals are all day events. So, have fun and lets eat.


1. Ride the DART to the Las Colinas Urban Center Station. This location is near Lake Carolyn where the Chipotle's Cultivate Festival will take over the park. This event will have live music, food demonstrations and a FUN kids zone. The festival has only been in select major cities across the US, so it will be great to have the festival here in Irving. 


1. Calling all my vegans and vegetarians!! Whoop Whoop, it's your time to shine this weekend. The Texas Veggie Fair will be at the Reverchon Park in Dallas. The festival will have live food demonstrations, live music and of course a kid zone. Don't forget the many food vendors for you to sample many food options. Get out this weekend and be apart of the ever growing vegan/vegetarian community.

Week of / October 6-12, 2014 / Dallas and Carrollton

    Learning and being around new cultures has always been a great activity to do as a family.
This weekend's itinerary will have your family venture out to eat and embrace the Latin culture.


1. Did you know that Target has an ongoing second Saturday event!! It is held at the Latino Cultural Center in Dallas and this will be a great opportunity for the family to be apart of another cultural experience and see what they can learn. This weekend, the center will have a Halloween themed day complete with crafts, games, and a play. Take this time to be apart of something  different. 

2. After a fun day at the Latino Cultural Center the family will be hungry for a great meal. Head over to  il Cane Rosso for some authentic Neapolitan pizza. I recommended going to the Deep Ellum location, since it only is 3 minutes away from the Cultural Center. 


1. I only have 2 words to say. Guava pastry. The Cuban International Bakery serves up the best Cuban sandwiches in Dallas, and of course the delicious guava pastry is killer. You ask, "What is guava?" and I will say run to this bakery and you will wonder why you haven't discovered this delicious fruit yet.

* This is a small bakery on the inside, so the space will be cozy.

-Have fun
