●●● About Me

I am the mother of two active boys, 14 and 11 years old. 

I have lived in Austin for the last twenty or so years, and absolutely *love* living here.  I love the quirkiness, the open-minded acceptance, the diversity, the wide variety of things to do and the fact that everyone who lives here loves living here.  :o)

Our family loves to explore new places, go on road trips, hike, geocache, backpack and more!

●●● History of the Top 50 list
Over eight years ago, my oldest son was in grade school.  It was May, and I was expressing my total excitement that school was ending.  I couldn’t wait for summer vacation.  

I was surround by a crowd who all looked at me blankly. One mom said, but my kids always get so bored.  Another said, There is nothing to do… Seriously?!?  In Austin?

So I put together a list of all the awesome and fun things there are to do in Austin.  And I shared it with them.  The next year, I did the same.  A few friends asked if they could share it with some of their friends.  Sure, no problem.

Now in its eighth year, my Austin Top 50 Fun in the Sun list gets over 30,000 visitors per month – with an additional 60,000 views of other pages and content!?!  Wow.  It seriously amazes me :o)

Every May, I update the list and add a few new things to try.  Throughout the summer, I blog about the places we go, attempting to provide relevant information.

Our family on a spring break trip to Big Bend.  If you haven’t been yet, you really need to go, this place is amazing!!!
