Grapevine Lake. Ezra and Dominique first time camping. This was one of the Best days for camping. The view was perfect the weather was ideal, it was a night that maybe will not be duplicated. I am so grateful for this time to spend with family and enjoy company.

Decks at the Park

Decks at the Park. What a fun event at the Klyde Warren Park. This park truly knows how to cater to the Dallas Community. The highlight of the night is the House music that local DJ's put on for free. This is something that I hope that the park puts on through the fall.

Northpark Mall

Northpark Mall in Dallas. This mall has been a great place to see sculptures, art and etc. I really enjoy the display windows and the creativity the stores put into it. Of course we could not leave the mall without stopping by the Lego's store. Andre has such a creative mind that he can build different kinds of mini lego people and they all come out different. What a great place to go with kids.


Klyde Warren Park. This has become our families new place to hang out in Dallas. The park has so many great events to offer families. We attended the Dallas Museum of Art Arturo. This class is offered to kids ages 3-5 years of age. The topic of that day was all about collections. Andre did a great job  participating with the class and giving some great answers. This City offers so many activities for the kids and I feel so blessed to have Andre participate. This will be something we will do again.

Red White and Blue

 Fourth Of July at the Fair Park. This was a free event that we had to be apart of. The mission was to get there early and get wristbands to enter into the Cotton Bowl Stadium and watch the fireworks in our cozy seats. This was a all day event with food trucks, crafts for kids, live music and the dancing waters. This was a great family outing and we really enjoyed ourselves. The firework show was great but not the best we have seen but truly a different experience.

REI Rock Climbing

WOW Andre climbed all the way to the top of the rock climbing wall. This was Andre's first time rock climbing and we decided to go to the REI and try it out. First Andre was harnessed into the straps, got some great instructions from a wonderful instructor and was ready to climb. He had most of the people in the REI store cheering him on. It was amazing that people stopped what they were doing to give our son encouragement to keep climbing. I am impressed with the people here in Dallas for the friendliness of what great people should be. Another Adventure for the Pliego's at REI.

Pool Time

We Love that Dominique made it out here to Dallas to visit with us. The pool was of course something that needed to happen. Texas is such a HOT and Toasty place that pools are really the best place to feel refreshing. Andre really adores his cousin Dominique because she his so much fun to be around. Pool Adventures in Irving.

Black and White Spots

Andre and Sweet Lucy made it out to Cow Appreciation Day for Chick Fil-A. Lucy looked so cute in her black and white polka dot outfit, as for Andre we just tapped on some spots to resemble something that was well thought of. Another Fun Day in Irving.

Grapevine Lake

Fireworks at Grapevine lake. This is a summer tradition in Dallas Texas. We enjoy the summer nights at the lake with family. a pliego adventure at the lake.

Grapevine Lake Mountain Bike Trail

Mountain Bike Trail at the Grapevine Lake.
What a blazing hot day in Dallas. The temperature that day was 103.0 Degrees. Aaron took it upon himself to take all the kids on the trail. I was so impressed by his willingness to do so. I'm sure he didn't mind because it has been close to a year since he has been back on that trail. What a great day for the Pliego's.
