This weekend Luis and I had a blast with Baby E. We didn’t realize how many activities there are for kids around Houston. Luis and I have always loved Halloween and all the fall festivities that follow, (Our first date was a scary movie!) so being able to experience everything through our sons eyes is so much fun and new for all three of us.
We went to the Children’s Museum first. The museum has a Halloween theme the entire month of October so kids can dress up in costume and trick or treat. We had to take advantage, so Luis dressed up as Batman, I was Batgirl, and E, well, he was Robin of course! Since E is 10 months, 11 months tomorrow, we took him to the second floor area called TotSpot. E LOVED it, we were there for THREE hours. Babies 34 months and younger can go in and do so many activities. They can play dress up, tumble on mats, play with Lego’s and so much more. It was so cute to see all these little babies dressed up in costumes, trying to walk, and crawl everywhere. E did so good playing with others. He gets so excited when he sees other babies, it melts my heart how loving and innocent he is. One thing I liked while we were playing with E in TotSpot, how clean they try to keep it. Grown-ups are required to wear shoe covers and children are required to wear socks or go barefoot. They also have red bags set up around the area where you can place dirty toys to be cleaned. Shoes can get so dirty, so I really appreciated the shoe covers, and lets face it, what baby doesn’t try to put EVERYTHING in their mouth? It was $20 bucks for Luis and I and E got in free. Not bad!
Next stop was a pumpkin patch. There’s one in our area that has a little train ride for the kids and a pumpkin chunkin area that’s held at the end of the month. We let E walk around the pumpkins for the first time and pick one out just for him.
Houston and surrounding areas have so much family fun actives, you could do something every weekend without breaking the bank. Below are some actives I found that I hope you’ll enjoy. The Houston Press also comes out with a Fall Event Guide that I look up every year.
Have any suggestions? List them below, I’d love suggestions for Baby E.
