Hi! I will be visiting family in Dickinson, Texas soon and I have never been to the area. I will be with my 2.5 year old son, and might want some mama's to talk to or even meet up with for support. Looking to make a couple of friends before we go. I haven't seen my dad in 20 years, (who we will be staying with).
Just wanted to check in with other naturally-minded, gentle/AP parenting moms!

Hi! I hope you'll have a wonderful time! Do be prepared for humidity. I know the heat in Chico can be pretty intense, too, but the humidity here makes it incomparable.

I'm in Sugar Land, so a looong way from Dickinson, but there are lots of fun things to do in the area. The Kemah Boardwalk may be fun depending on the ages of the kids. The Children's Museum in Houston is fabulous for all ages. There's also the zoo, which currently has a dinosaur exhibit, and then the science museum, which has a butterfly center, dinos, etc. All of those are in a pretty close proximity to each other. There's a light rail system that, while it doesn't run ALL that far, is lots of fun for kids (and pretty cheap), and it's in the same vicinity as the museums and zoo.

Have fun!
