    Tips for flying with a 2 year old and her car seat

    Traveling with my youngest has been really “easy” until she started walking. That was the time when air traveling became my nightmare. On our trip to California I was finger crossing that she would sleep through the flight, and it was that way, the thing is she was a couple of days away of turning two and she was still flying in “lap” so I was exhausted of having her in my lap for 3 hours. I can’t complain she woke up when we were landing. On our way back, she didn’t slept and we even had bought her a seat. Let’s just say we were that family with a…

    Glamping at Flying Flags Resort at Buellton California

    Glamping (glamorous camping) has become one of my favorite things to do since our first glamping experience at Antigua Guatemala last summer. We went to Los Angeles for 4 days, and I wanted so badly to squeeze in our itinerary a mini road trip and drive through the amazing views of highway one. It happened to be Cristian’s birthday, so we celebrated his birthday Glamping at Flying Flags Resort at Buellton California (three and half hours away from Los Angeles). Glamping at Flying Flags Resort When we arrived we were welcome with warm chocolate chip cookies ( yes, my 2 year old daughter already felt in heaven). They offer unique accommodations…

    Pacific coast highway road trip with kids

    For the first time I had this feeling that I didn’t wanted to came back from vacations. At the end of every vacation I always have this need to come back to reality, but not this time, I don’t know if it was because it was a short vacation or because how I felt in love with California.  I started planning this trip knowing that my plan could be totally sabotaged by Mia (she is a couple of weeks from the terrific twos ). In effect my plan got sabotaged several times and we made unplanned things that turned out to be amazing. Anyway I wanted to have a plan…

    Toddler Tuesday at Discovery Green + Good Dog

    I really like Houston parks but it’s hard for me to stay long periods of time outdoors during summer. Usually during summer we have either indoors or splash pads play dates, like story time at The Houston Museum of Modern art.  I was looking for something fun to do because the weather forecast for this week was perfect to do something outdoors without melting and getting sweaty after 5 minutes like a regular Houston summer day.  I saw a Facebook post were Big Kids Small City announced that they were hosting a story time at discovery green; By the way You need to follow Big Kids Small City if you…

    Glamping in Antigua Guatemala

    Every summer we visit our family in Guatemala, my parents wanted to spend some quality time with us this time so we went glamping to Antigua Guatemala. We headed to Antigua and had lunch at an amazing restaurant “Los tres tiempos”, it’s located at “La calle del Arco”,  the  decor and food is an inspiration of Guatemala culture, I had a “chuchito souffle” it was delicious.  After lunch we went to the local market and then we checked in at Casa Santo Domingo. If you ever go to Antigua, Casa Santo Domingo is a must visit place, it’s s a luxury one of a kind hotel with a museum, spa,…

    A weekend in Austin with a toddler

    We just came back from Austin and in conclusion we want to move to Austin some day LoL. We felt in love with Austin, we had been there before but we didn’t had the time to explore the city.  We started our trip with a stop at an RC track because the main purpose of the trip was a RC race Cris had that weekend. So we stopped and it was soooo hot! There was no place with AC at the track and you know Texas in the summer, not good without a pool if you are outdoors, Mia didn’t see to mind that much, she was playing with her…

    Museum of Fine Arts Houston Playdate + Tiny’s Milk & Cookies

    Summer time in Houston immediately calls for indoor locations to play and entertain kids and adults. Since I moved to Houston everyone has recommend me to visit the Museum of Fine Arts, I really never felt a big interest in going until I saw they were having the temporary exhibition Pixel Forest and Worry Will Vanish by Pipilotti Rist, I knew it would be really delightful for Mia and me, a time of stimulation and relaxation at the same time. We went on a Tuesday at 10:45am to the play date they host every Tuesday, it was a unique experience of story time, each month they focus on a different work of art.  They…
