Uncle Uber's Sammich Shop




Deep Ellum, TX

Take a trip to Deep Ellum for some good eats at Uncle Uber's.


I have wanted to eat at the Pecan Lodge in Deep Ellum ever since we moved to Dallas. When we finally made the trip to Deep Ellum we saw that the the line to get into the restaurant was out the door and quickly changed our minds. We took a stroll down a different street and found Uncle Uber's Sammich Shop. Best decision ever.


The sandwiches are amazing. The Cuban pressed sandwich was a must try and my kids demolished the sandwich. We also tried the Crispy Chicken sandwich and the chicken was so tasty. Eating here was great, the staff are so nice and accommodating to us with children.





 They helped with bringing the food to the table and etc. The space is a good size to find seating and park a stroller and not feel in peoples way. We just loved that convenience. Also I hear the burgers are a must try, so that means another trip back to Uncle Uber's for sure. 




 Also take the stroll around Deep Ellum and look around for some amazing talent we have in Dallas. You will be amazed at the different street art the graces the walls of buildings. This is a great place to take pictures as well as gain some inspiration. I love street art and admire the talent.

Minbie Instinctive baby feeding technique


 
 I have yet to try anything that has been promoted in Australia until I found out about the Minbie feeding system. Writing for my blog has encouraged me to go out in the cities across the DFW metroplex finding family friendly events. We have recently added a new baby to our family and we needed a way to feed her when we are out on the go. I have been fortunate to be able to nurse my daughter, but there are times that she will need to take a bottle. I came across the Minbie feeding system and was really impressed with the new feeding technology behind this product. Not only does it resemble a nipple it is soft to the touch and was an easy latch for my daughter.



 
 My daughter took to this bottle fairly slow, but after a few tries she was able to latch on and enjoyed her meal on the go. We like this brand I hope that you will give it a try. This product like I mentioned is from Australia and new to the market so be aware of shipping and transit times. Down below I have included a link to the Minbie website and the shipping cost for US residents. 





Minbie's significant breakthroughs:

-Minbie nurtures a newborn's ability to breastfeed by allowing newborns to bottle-feed with the instinctive feeding technique that they are born with.


-Minbie supports a newborn's digestion by helping to release natural digestive enzymes. This supports a baby's sleep too.


-Minbie matches breast and bottle feeding techniques.

We passionately believe that you should be able to breastfeed and bottle-feed your baby.

To help you, we have created Minbie which is a teat designed to support your newborn's instinctive breastfeeding technique. This means that when newborns feed from Minbie they practice the instinctive latch and feeding-action for nurturing breastfeeding. This is a significant breakthrough in matching breast and bottle-feeding techniques and preventing feeding-confusion*.

For newborns who can not be breastfed, we created Minbie to allow them to bottle-feed with the instinctive breastfeeding technique that they are born with because why shouldn't they be able to feed intuitively with the technique that is developmentally right for them and that helps release digestive enzymes for proper digestion of the milk.



How is Minbie different than other teats?

Our research has found that generic and orthodontic bottle-teats can quickly teach newborns a different latch and feeding-action to the newborn's natural instinctive breastfeeding technique. This may be sufficient for bottle feeding, but it can cause feeding confusion and problems such as a 'weak latch' and 'lazy feeding' when the baby is breastfeeding.

If your newborn has become used to other bottle-teats, he or she may have difficulty feeding from a Minbie teat. This may be an indication that your baby's instinctive feeding technique has been damaged.
Every feed counts ...

Use Minbie as the first and only bottle teat for your baby to help maintain and strengthen your baby's instinctive breastfeeding technique, the way nature intended. 


- I was asked to review this product, but opinions expressed are all mine. 

*shipping to the US only charging $7.95AUD ($6.20USD)

Alliance Air Show



What? You haven't made it to the Ft. Worth Alliance Air Show yet?


The Ft. Worth Alliance Air Show is where you need to be this weekend. This event has been a family tradition for us and we are thrilled to be going again this year. 

Many amazing and historic planes and helicopters will be displayed on the runway along with various other activities and exhibits. The kids will surely be excited to stand beside the jets, planes and helicopters on display.

This year's featured performers will be the Blue Angels but the day will be filled with many other exciting aerial demonstrations that should not be missed either.

Fair food will be available for purchase. I am sure it will be hard not to eat the corn dogs, funnel cakes and of course the frozen lemonade. This event has it all and the weather this year will be prefect. Can't wait.

Some tips:

General Admission is free for the airshow but a parking pass is required for each vehicle. Purchase your parking ticket online in advance for a discounted price.

I recommend bringing a stroller/wagon for the kids to ensure that their little feet don't get tired and of course a place for them to sit. 

Bring folding chairs for the adults as well. This will ensure that everyone is comfortable. Paid seating options are also available.

Ear plugs can be purchased (or bring your own) if you are sensitive to the loud noise because the jets are very loud when they are passing low overhead, and I am not exaggerating, very loud.

My family has made this a tradition and I know that your family will enjoy it the same and have the best time ever this weekend. Please, summer don't go away just yet.
