I live in the grand state of Texas! I' love Texas!! I've learned it's hotter than the devils tongue...more beautiful than a fresh baked cup cake....and friendlier than the high school counselor that gave you the creeps. Come share my adventures in life. I'm a mother of three beautiful one's & two hairy ones (my doggies). I must also mention that I'm the CEO of the family. I've learned that life is more than 'my fine shirt just got soaked' bath times, 'hey we are so running fashionable late again' swimming lessons, your most recent 'break down' in the laundry room (yes I'm talking to you; now put down the dryer lint slowly), the latest 'does my butt look big' moment, or even that rock awesome meal you cooked last night. Life is random, sexy, unbelievable, predictable and darn cool. Lets get crafty, create, explore Texas, and have some pretty sweet experiences!

Parents will delight in the smiles of their child as they race around this 440-foot long track.You’ll love our two elaborately themed 18-hole miniature golf courses, home to a 30-foot, 3-story volcano, with 2 challenging holes located inside the volcano! But BEWARE, this volcano can erupt at any time. Other highlights include an angry Tiki Man who blows smoke, water, and fire, a fire-breathing lizard, waterfalls, suspended bridges, and unique holes to challenge even the serious golfer.
