2018 is just around the corner now and I am excited about the few things that we will be doing over the next year and everything that we will be bringing to the blog. So this is our 2018 Bucket List of the different things that we will be doing.
We have been planning a few hotels that we will be staying at over the next year.Â Save on Resorts all over the world with Booking.com!Â Booking.com has been wonderful for us as we don’t have to put even a deposit down on the hotels that we will be staying at, and we can cancelÂ before our trip to that location.Â
My Cousins Wedding
The first trip I already have booked is our trip to Fort Mill, SC in April for my cousin’s wedding. I booked our hotel room as soon as Amy sent me the save the date card.Â Yes, we used Booking.com to book our hotel room, and will be showing you our room at the Hampton Inn and SuitesÂ as well our road trip from Dallas to South Carolina!Â
As a photographer that is currently getting into shooting weddings, I have a client that wanted me to shoot her wedding, but she moved. In June, we will be heading down to the Four Points by Sheraton Galveston. So while I am off shooting the wedding, the kids will be able to enjoy the beach (again) and the small amusementÂ park. Like with the Fort Mill, SC hotel, we will bring a hotel review. This will be another Road Trip that we will capture.
Six Flags Fiesta Texas
Yes, We will be heading to San Antonio for a few days in July! We will be visiting Six Flags Fiesta TexasÂ and staying at La Cantera Resort & Spa!Â I won’t lie, I am EXTREMELY excited about staying at this resort! I already know that after a long day at Six Flags, relaxing at this resort would be wonderful! Look out for our review of our room and resort stay! We will also have posts featuring Six Flags, and other things that we will be doing while in San Antonio. If we can push it, we will stay more than a few days.Â
We will be heading out on more camping trips this year since the hurricaneÂ canceled our last trip. We will be tent camping at a few different locations
Big Bend Ranch State Park
We are looking at camping down by the Rio Grand for a weekend trip with the girls once it starts to warm up a little bit. I keep thinking about seeing the stars while at Big Bend Ranch State Park and the wonderful images we will have.
Padre Island National Seashore
Yes, we will be going back again for another weekend camping trip right on the beach down at Padre Island National Seashore. This was our first camping trip as a family and I can’t wait to head back and hopefully see the baby sea turtle this time.
Cedar Hill State Park
Located right in our own backyard, Cedar Hill State Park is just around the corner from us in the DFW area. So this will be great for a few nights and to go swimming when we don’t have other places to go.
Oh The Places We Will Go
When we are not off doing overnight trips camping and hotel stays, we will be exploring our own backyard. There is so much for us to share with you in the DFW area, and sometimes just a short car ride away.
Dallas City Pass
Have you heard of the CityPass? You can save up to 39% off of Dallas’ top attractions with the CityPass. We will be visiting the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, Reunion Tower GeO-Deck (the big ball in the sky) and we have the choice of visiting The Sixth Floor Museum or Dallas Zoo and another choice between George Bush Presidential Library & Museum or The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden!
Are you planning to be in Dallas more than a weekend? You have 9 days to finish using your CityPass. When we use our CityPass, we will be bringing you along with us, and showcasing all six of the attractions so you can make an informed decision on where you want to go.
Ripley’s Believe It or Not and the Palace of Wax!
Just up the highway, or in our case, on our way to Six Flags Over Texas, you will find Ripley’s Believe it or Not and several other attractions under one roof! I haven’t been to Ripley’s since Skyler was a little girl and Rhyan is going to love it when we head down there. Save up to $47 OFF Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Grand Prairie Odditorium +4 Attractions Combo Ticket. BUY TICKETS ONLINE NOW!
Legoland Discovery Center
Between James, Skyler, and Rhyan, this looks like a VERY fun place for our family. This will be another great place for us to showcase as we visit Grapevine quite often. I can only imagine what the big kids, James and Skyler, will get into while Rhyan and I have our own fun!
While down at Legoland, we might also get tickets to Sea Life in Grapevine also. Or just do combo tickets and do it all in one day!
