Possum Kingdom Vacation

We recently visited Possum kingdom for the first time, and I have to say it did not disappoint.

The vacation rental we rented was perfect!

It was a small cottage right on the lake, like literally the lake was in our back yard.

It was so relaxing sitting on the back patio, watching the lake, listening to music and fishing.

The fishing was great, my son was the fishing champion catching 15 fish!

Ciara enjoyed floating in the lake and the house was completely accessible so our backs really enjoyed that.

We enjoyed every meal from the outside kitchen and even watched TV on the patio Television.

Now, the Wifi did not work too well so streaming shows was out of the question. But honestly it did not bother us, we got to enjoy each other as a family and never missed the Wifi.

It is also a little off the beaten path, so city folks might feel like they are in the back woods but we loved it!

If you are in Texas and want a relaxing vacation, I would definitely recommend this gem.

Wheelchair Accessible Summer Activities

Summer time is here and kids are out of school. Finding activites that our kids in wheelchairs can participate can be frustrating.

Until the whole World decides to be wheelchair accessible, we are limited to what we can do with Ciara but that doesn’t mean we don’t have our favorite summer time activites.

Here are some great activity ideas that are wheelchair accessible, that we enjoy doing during the summer time.

Morgan’s Wonderland

Morgan’s Wonderland is a accessible theme park, designed for special needs people in San Antonio Texas.

They have amusement rides and a water park.

We love Morgan’s Wonderland! It’s definitely a summer must have activity.

Skating

Here in Waco we have a skating rink that allows kids in wheelchairs to use the skating rink in their chair.

Ciara loves zooming around the rink in her power chair.

Bowling

Bowling is always a fun activity. They have bowling lanes with a ramp. I like to call ahead to make sure that the lane with the wheelchair ramp is available.

They also have bowling ramps for people who cannot throw the ball.

We always have a blast at the bowling alley.

Zoo

The zoo can be a little too hot during the summer time in Texas, but it’s always an option.

Build a Bear

Ciara has so much fun when she visits Build A Bear. Who doesn’t love building their own bear?? And it’s accessible and the workers are very accommodating for us.

Drive thru Safari

Drive thru safari’s are always fun. We use to drive to Glen Rose Texas to see their safari but now we have one closer that we are excited to try.

Movies

Okay so movie theaters can be frustrating because most theaters sit people in wheelchairs at the very front, and you break your neck looking up at the screen the whole time.

Last summer we visited the Hippodrome Theater in Waco and absolutely loved it!

They have a wheelchair lift that lifts them to their seat. You can also order food while you watch your movie. If you know the struggle of carrying movie snacks while pushing a wheelchair you understand how great that is!

I hope you have enjoyed these Summer Activities Ideas and have a great summer!

My Top 6 Plus Size Swimsuits

Summer is here and it is time to get ready for all those water activities. Putting on that swimsuit can add some extra anxiety to us bigger girls. Maybe we put on some extra weight during the winter and it is riding up in places you would rather it not ride up, or in my case sometimes the dang thing just won’t go over my big butt anymore. In any case, it might be time to get a new swimsuit.

I know swimsuit shopping can be such a hassle. I never see anything in the store that covers what I want to be covered. The cute swimsuits are for the skinny girls and we get left with ugly prints or just plain ugly designs.

I have found that online shopping is the way to go for finding a suitable swimsuit. I know that can be scary, not getting to see it in person, but always read the reviews to see if they are true to size and are of good material.

I have found some awesome plus size swimsuits on Amazon, I have been happy with every swimsuit I have ordered. Here are 6 of my favorite plus size swimsuits on Amazon. They all have tummy control and hide those unwanted body parts we do not want showing while we bask in the sun. If you see one you like just hit the link!
