When the kids were smaller, they are all young adults/teens now, we use to go out and play at the parks and shop for seasonal things and do more as a family. Now that they are bigger they seem to of course want to spend more time with friends and doing school activities etc.
But I still try to get them to go with me to the Texas State Fair now that we live closer to it where we can go and also other things like the Plano Balloon Festival etc. There are activities and things like that to go do around here now.
Last year we all went to the TX State Fair, we all had a good time. They hadn't been before and seemed to like it. We saw all kinds of cool things there and they rode some pretty cool rides in which of course I took videos of them :)
My youngest who is going to be 16 next month, rode a roller coaster for the first time. He finally asked if he could ride it and he enjoyed it! Then we all rode the Ferris Wheel and I took pics and videos from it as well. This year I want to do it all over again, but, I want to see the car shows and other things too that we missed last year.
I went to the Plano Balloon Festival which is also another great fun activity to do this Autumn/Fall. Great weather for it. The wind was a little high so not too many balloons could take off but, it was still fun :) That's going to be a tradition, I haven't gone in years so that was fun to go there and see how things have changed etc.
And then next weekend is when not only the Fair opens but, also the Octoberfest is going to be close to us as well :) I haven't ever been to it so I want to check it out and see what they have to offer and do.
