Campo Verde Mexican Restaurant

Kamden and I may have found the Christmas Tinsel Capital of the world at Campo Verde Mexican Restaurant in Arlington, Texas! Look at this place ... This place is COVERED in Christmas decor. There are lights and trees everywhere. And tinsel. Lots and lots of tinsel! Campo Verde opened in July 1983 and I would be [...]

Family Vacation 1.0 | San Antonio 2018

  Our very first Hutchison Family Vacation was a roaring SUCCESS and we had a wonderful time at Sea World and Aquatica in San Antonio. It was the perfect getaway for us ... not too far from home and a couple nights in a hotel was just right for Husband and Kamden. Thanks to a [...]

Fossil Rim Wildlife Center

If you are near the Dallas/Fort Worth area, I highly recommend visiting Fossil Rim Wildlife Center. Every time my parents (Kamden's YaYa and Grandaddy) are here, I like to plan at least one fun, out-of-the-box excursion. Last week, we drove to Glen Rose, about 35 miles southwest of Joshua and experienced Fossil Rim. Though we [...]

So this happened last night …

Kamden had his first public performance last night at the annual J.U.M.P.S. Christmas program. He and his classmates have been practicing "Jingle Bells" since early October. All week he has been shaking his fists up and down whenever he's hear a song on the radio or TV. I finally realized he's been rehearsing songs every day at [...]

Awards Day at The Little Gym

It's hard to believe it's been almost a year since Kamden started going to The Little Gym! What happened to my chunky monkey? He's now a little boy. Before the awards presentation, Kamden and his Birds buddies got to show off the skills they've been learning to friends and family. Kamden loves using the P (parallel) Bars to [...]

I've lived in Texas almost 12 years and I finally experienced the Bluebonnet Festival in Ennis! The trip almost didn't happen between schedule conflicts and unpredictable weather on top of my seasonal allergies really bothering me. But, under clear skies, and the influence of Zyrtec, I had a really great time with Kamden and our 'Z' friends. We [...]

Kamden Meets Santa Claus

Mini Man Child (aka Kamden) met Santa Claus this weekend at a special event held at The Little Gym in Burleson. The two hit it off and no tears or emotions were wrecked by either party. Honestly, as long as Husband and I were within eyesight, Kamden didn't care whether or not he and the [...]

More Fun at The Little Gym

Once a week, Kamden and I visit The Little Gym for an hour-long class. We've been attending these classes since June, when Kamden was six months old. I have seen major progress in his social and physical development and, if I'm being completely transparent, it's been nice (socially) for Mommy to be with other adults too! Now that [...]
