Welcome to Saturday Snapshots Week Fifteen. Can you believe June is almost over and July is here? Do you ever say “where has this year gone”? I seem to all the time. Maybe you think time is passing quickly too if you have walked through stores like Hobby Lobby and Christmas has been on the shelves for a few weeks.
Last weekend was Fathers Day. After a great lunch at a local restaurant mini golf was suggested. Sir Goony’s Family Fun Center has been around for years and offer a variety of inside and out games. We chose a round of mini golf, then the guys hit up the batting cages and go-carts. A fun way to spend an afternoon together.
This week we are talking all things for the 4th of July – maybe you need a few decor items for a special get together, just to add a festive touch to your home, or get you in the Spirit to celebrate our grand Country.
Oh and a little food is always welcomed.
This past week on the blog it seemed to be about Texas and drinks – they go together – right?
If you are making a trip to San Antonio, I cannot tell you how much we loved Hotel Valencia. It’s a beautiful hotel, very luxurious without the luxury prices. Also, it’s right on the Riverwalk. Just walk down a few steps and enjoy a stroll.
While in the Frisco area, one of our favorite places to stay is a Drury Inn & Suites. I have to say, this is one of the prettiest ones we’ve stayed at. You will find things in Texas to be more open than a lot of areas. At Drury you had the full breakfast and 5:30 Kickback of food and drinks.
Then I had a couple of drinks on the blog featuring a few of my favorite fruits – Blackberries and Strawberries. Perfect for the upcoming 4th events or just enjoying on your porch on a warm summer evening.
Did you shop on Amazon Prime Days? Here’s some of my favorites (affiliate links).
