Make Summer Fun with a Pogo Pass!

Hey parents in the DFW area (and others)!!  Are you looking for a cheap, budget friendly way to keep your kids from whining about how bored they are all summer?  I know I am!  I have 7 kids ranging from 1 to almost 13 so it’s kind of hard to please everyone.  I discovered the most AWESOME thing called the Pogo Pass.  It gives you admission into a whole bunch of venues that will be sure to please everyone. 

From Hawaiian Falls to the Video Game Museum, here in the DFW Metroplex there are so many fun family activities.  We usually end up getting one family membership to one place because they are pretty pricey but it never really seems worth it when we only go a few times a year.  Of course, it’s worth it financially, but my kids get tired of going to the same place over and over.  With the Pogo Pass, you get 1-12 entries into a whole bunch of places to you can go do something new each time.

“A Tale of Two Daddies”, by the same author, is also a quick read, this time about a girl who answers questions about her dads, Daddy and Poppa, as she plays with another kidlet at the playground. […]

It’s been a while…

Oh, hi!  It’s been quite a while since I have been on here.  Last year was a doozy.  There was some extreme ups at the beginning of the year and then everything kind of fell apart for a while.  Lots of extreme downs.  Loss, abuse, depression, stress, sadness, confusion. 

2016 was not always kind to me. […]
