Tinker Crate  - 

One of my very very favorite pictures {taken by me} happened this last week while working on a sponsored post for +Tinker Crate while my youngest son - 8 y/o - built the trebuchet that was included {awesome, btw} with our pup, Panda.

You can see all the photos and the fun here on +Kids Activities Blog  - http://kidsactivitiesblog.com/60889/tinker-crate-kiwi-crate-engineering-fun-box

There just isn't anything cuter than a boy and a dog!

Hernando's is a very busy restaurant, but good at keeping up even with a large group. I love the pizza - usually order the white house pizza. The pizza crust is great and the addition of honey on the table is a bonus. We always look forward to eating at Hernando's on each visit to Winter Park.

Our family has been patients of Dr. Simms since he opened his practice in Denton. He is a great doctor. He listens and spends time with us at every visit. I like that he treats the entire family because often the same cold/flu affects us all. I highly recommend him.

We are season ticket holders to the Rangers and love going to the Ballpark. Changes this year have been positive with the Capitol One Club offering a nice buffet - prefer the whole buffet before the 4th inning. The only thing that has changed for the worse is the food delivered to seats on Lexus level. It is nearly inedible which is disappointing and a decline from years past. All and all, the facilities are amazing and no where else I would rather be on a summer evening.

The Flower Mound public library is awesome. There is a great selection of not only books, but learning kits for kids. There is a good kids reading program and lots of activities for pre-school age kids at the library during the day. The atmosphere is nice to stop by to study.

We love going to Winter Park in the summer. There is tons to do for the family at the base of the mountain including one of the best alpine slides I have ridden. There is also a climbing wall, human maze, trampoline bungy jumping, mini-golf and chairlift ride to the top of the mountain. Throughout the base village larger-than-life board games are set up - Scrabble, Jenga, Chess, Checkers, Connect Four and others which are really fun to stop and play. In the winter, it is a good place for skiing and snowboarding. I have taken lessons at Winter Park - both semi-private and group lessons and thought they were a good value for the $$ compared to other ski resorts we have visited. The ski mountain on average is not groomed so there are more bumps on blue slopes than other resorts which is good and bad depending on level and how tired you are :). It is a place we visit several times a year.

Lone Star Park is a fun place to visit. I don't know all the ins/out of horse racing or betting so it is very nice that the employees are so helpful. We have visited as a guest of one of the suites which has good food and amenities. We have also visited and eaten in the restaurant which was nice as well. The park is surprisingly busy on nights they have concerts, but overall a great evening out.

This is a super cute bookstore with small coffee shop. It is a nice place to meet a friend and do a little shopping. The selection is limited in some areas, but the charm makes up for it.
