Can you believe it's already the end of July? This summer is flying by, but in true Mommy Poppins form we are still finding all sorts of gems around Houston to keep you and the kiddos entertained, with our newest favorite being the Strawberry Water Park in Pasadena. This low-key water park is the perfect compromise when you don't want all the hustle and bustle of bigger parks like Schlitterbahn, but still want some of the famed water park attractions like water slides and lazy rivers.
For families interested in floating an actual river instead of a lazy river, check out one of five rivers featured in our Coolest Rivers in Texas for Kid-Friendly Floating & Tubing post. These floats are well worth the weekend trip!
Other noteworthy things happening this weekend:
- This is the last weekend to check out Pinkalicious at Main Street Theater, so be sure to snag your tickets for this one-of-a-kind show!
- The Houston Zoo is staying open late Fridays and Saturdays for their Evening Chill throughout the summer, so you can beat the heat and see all of your favorite animals.
- Sweat for a good cause this weekend by running the Fit Foodie 5k or Kids 1k, which benefits Kids Meals.
