Discovery Green park has putt putt golf!

(photo credit: taken from Discovery Green's website)

We've had amazing weather in Houston for the past few days. We decided to go to Discovery Green park this past Sunday. For those of you who don't live in Houston, Discovery Green park is an amazing park that was built a few years ago. It's smack dab in the middle of downtown Houston near the convention center.

Discovery Green park is a great family park with tons of stuff to do. They offer yoga, zumba, live music, have a few restaurants and cart vendors. They even have a Houston public library branch. Click here for their calendar.

Dominic and Justin decided to play some putt putt golf. I just watched and took photo's.
 It was a great day for all of us!

Full, busy weekend.

This weekend was no different than most of our weekends. I try to keep Dominic busy because he's such a spaz if we sit inside all day. Friday evening, we went to Chuy’s for dinner. I ordered their Baja taco's, which is their version of fish taco's. Yum!
Saturday, Justin had to work (he's a hair stylist and Saturday's are normally his busy day). Dominic and I walked Hana and then we went to eat breakfast at Empire Cafe. Empire Cafe is a coffee house/restaurant/place to chill. It's been open for a very long time and I think it used to be an old gas station or something. Anyway, I ordered their Migas for breakfast. I tend to think I'm a Migas connoisseur, but I was truly not impressed with their version. I think it needed more eggs or something. Looked really good though:
Dominic was a spaz all throughout breakfast. We were sitting on the patio and he would get up from his seat and start chasing the poor pigeons around. He makes me really upset when he does that. Ugh! We were going to go to the park after we ate, but it started to rain. We ended up going to Blockbuster video and renting some movies.

The rest of the day was pretty chill. We didn't do anything yesterday. I love weekends!

"I love my mom"

A few days ago, I was laying in bed acting as if I was still sleeping. My cute little four and a half year old son was next to me. He cuddled up behind me and whispered, "I love my mom". So sweet!

Yogurtland Rocks!

The new rage of sweet shops to visit in Houston is yogurt shops. One of my most favorite yogurt shops is Yogurtland.

I've been to other yogurt shops here in Houston and they're all basically the same. I stumbled upon Yogurtland one day and they seem to have a better variety of yogurt. They have tart frozen yogurts, which I love, but they also have other normal flavors such as chocolate and strawberry. All of their yogurt is self serve and they have a topping bar near the checkout. The topping bar includes things such as granola, fresh fruit and candy. I love chocolate covered sunflower seeds and typically spoon on some of those with some blueberries (I know it probably sounds pretty gross, but it tastes really yummy!).

Dominic and I went to Yogurtland after visiting the zoo yesterday and each got a yogurt and sat outside and enjoyed the afternoon.

If you like frozen yogurt and haven't been to Yogurtland, you need to go. They weigh your cup and their price is the best around-and, they have the best flavors around. Trust me, you won't be disappointed!
