How To Plan A Kid Birthday Party In The Houston Area In 20 Easy Steps


My son’s birthday party was today and I am too pooped to upload pictures.  Here is my homemade  milk chocolate cake from last Friday night. 

 It was a great party.  You know cake, moonwalk with a slide (Big Ups to Lonestar Moonwalks and Party Supply), sherbert party punch(did not go over well), pinatas (one of the best things about the party), pizza, goody bags, party website..the usual stuff.

This week I will give you the tips you need to save money and throw a party that looks like tons of trouble but is not really that darn much.  During this economic slowdown in the country parents are looking to save money on a birthday party but they are not willing to just not have a party.  People will always scrap together two cents to either pay for a kids birthday party or pay for a wedding (of course in Texas I will include the Quinceañera party for young ladies too) no matter how broke they are or what bill needs to be paid.

By the way,  Lonestar Moonwalks and Party Supply is offering a 10% discount to parents in the Houston area who mention they saw this post on the web.  More about my pleasant experience with this company later.

Coming on Monday, April 20th.


Free Kids Summer Fun ….Kleb Woods Nature Preserve, Hiking, Kids Picnic Area, Farm

Kleb Woods Nature Preserve


Nature Center and Heritage Park, Tomball, Texas.  281-357-5324.   It is a park, nature trail, event place, farm visit, forest hike, bird sighting and butterfly station all rolled into one. 

My family and I were taking a scenic tour of Mueschke Road today and stumbled upon this nature/park preserve located in NW Harris County near the historic community of Rose Hill on FM 2929.

 If you know anything about  NW Houston, you know that the hills start to roll and trees reach for the skies blocking some of that Houston, Texas humidity.   The nature trail was wonderful.  It was just me and my family walking through the peaceful woods.

We were the only people in the park besides the Harris County Precint 3 Police and Parks Patrol.

I will leave you with the pictures for now and give you more review later.

 The facility is open from 7 am until dusk daily.
