Goldfish Swim School – Carrollton, TX – What Makes Them Different?

In only three months, my 5-year-old daughter has gone from being afraid to blow bubbles in the bathtub to swimming under water by herself. Goldfish Swim School has completely changed the way she acts in the water and I just have to share!

Goldfish Swim School Carrollton, TX - DFW Swimming Lessons - The Dallas Mom

I know how important it is to teach my kids safety in and around the water. I have always wanted them to learn to swim both for fun and for their own protection. When Goldfish Swim School reached out to partner with me to showcase their first school in the DFW area, I was so excited. And they have definitely exceeded my expectations.

Goldfish Swim School Carrollton, TX - The Dallas Mom

Every staff member, from the swim instructors to the ladies working the front desk, have been kind and helpful each week. If you miss a lesson and need to make it up, they are happy to help. If you have a question about your child’s progress, they will take a moment to chat with you about what you can work on at home.

Goldfish Swim School Carrollton, TX - The Dallas Mom

When you first start swimming lessons, your child will be evaluated to see which class they should join. They’ll also give you a checklist of skills to work on any time you are in the water – things like getting comfortable wearing goggles under water.

Then you’ll come in for a 30-minute class each week in their heated 90-degree pool. (If you’ve ever tried to do swimming lessons in a cold pool, you KNOW what a big difference that makes!).

Goldfish Swim School Carrollton, TX - The Dallas Mom

Right now they offer classes Tuesday and Thursday morning and evening and throughout the day on the weekends. They offer different classes at each time slot so even if you have two kids you are trying to coordinate, they will have classes that fit your schedule.

Goldfish Swim School Carrollton, TX - The Dallas Mom

We have experienced both the mommy-and-me classes for the littlest swimmers and the traditional classes with a few students paired with a teacher. Both formats have been wonderful and it’s obvious the teachers are highly trained to work with kids in the water.

Goldfish Swim School Carrollton, TX - The Dallas Mom

In three months, my daughter (age five) has learned to hold her breath under water, swim a short distance under water, and float on her back just to name a few skills. My son (age 2.5) know that he needs to turn back towards the wall once he comes in the water, he has learned how to crawl along the wall, and he has overcome his fear of having water on his head.

These may seem like small steps, but they are huge strides for my kids. Each week they are so excited to show me what they’ve learned during the last five minutes of class (during “parent showcase” time).

Goldfish Swim School Carrollton, TX - The Dallas Mom

Aside from the perfectly heated pool and the phenomenal instructors who get real results, they have amenities that make it easy to go to swimming lessons. When’s the last time you thought it was easy to go to swimming lessons!?

When you come in, they have cubbies for all your gear and distractions for siblings who aren’t in lessons like books, coloring, TV, and even a chalk wall. There is also plenty of room for parent observation.

Goldfish Swim School Carrollton, TX - The Dallas Mom

They also have showers with tear-free soap for rinsing off after lessons, changing rooms that include a baby seat (as well as a diaper changing station for babies), and family bathrooms to make changing easy.

Goldfish Swim School Carrollton, TX - The Dallas Mom Goldfish Swim School Carrollton, TX - The Dallas Mom

Then they have a few features that are just above and beyond what you would expect purely to make a parent’s life easier. They have swimsuit drying stations (so you don’t have to carry a dripping wet swimsuit home in your bag) and a hair drying station with a bench that looks like a surfboard.

Goldfish Swim School Carrollton, TX - The Dallas Mom

The biggest reason we love Goldfish is because when we had tried swimming lessons in the past, there were tears and fits every single time we drove to lessons.

When we walk into Goldfish with their tropical decor, friendly staff, fun lessons, and extras to make my life easier, there are only smiles. We walk out and my kiddos are asking when they can come to swimming lessons again. That’s what I call a mom win!

An Evening of Wonder at Medieval Times

medieval-times-the-dallas-mom

Huzzah and welcome to Medieval Times!

Medieval Times Winter - The Dallas Mom

 

Prepare to be transported to another time of chivalry and honor inside the castle at Medieval Times.

Your whole family will love spending the evening with princesses and knights. Whether it’s for a special event or an evening out, it’s the perfect way to lose yourself in the magic of the castle. We watched a little boy being knighted for his 8th birthday and chatted with a falcon trainer.

Medieval Times Winter - The Dallas Mom

My kids were talking about this night for weeks. We have been studying Medieval Times as a family, reading through some Magic Treehouse books and the (fabulous) book A Medieval Feast. So my kids were even more excited when stepped through the doors and they got to put on their black and white crowns.

What to Expect at Medieval Times

Doors open 75 minutes before show time and your seats are assigned first-come, first-served.

When you enter the castle, you’ll get crowns in your knight’s color. You’ll have the opportunity to take pictures with a knight or a princess.

Then you walk into the lobby, where you can purchase a souvenir, belly up to the bar, or walk around and take in the sights. Don’t miss seeing the horses up close – they are truly beautiful.

Medieval Times Winter - The Dallas Mom

About 20 minutes before showtime, you will be escorted into the arena by color. Once inside the area, you find your seat and your server arrives to give you some instructions for the evening.

Medieval Times Winter - The Dallas Mom

Then you’ll enjoy your Medieval feast! But parents might want to note – there was no silverware in the Middle Ages, so there’s no silverware here. They also serve Water, Tea, or Pepsi, so plan ahead if you need something else for the littlest Lords and Ladies.

Medieval Times Winter - The Dallas Mom

This was a brand new show we had never seen before and it was really wonderful. I don’t want to spoil too much, but there was action, intrigue, and excitement – totally captivating!

Medieval Times Winter - The Dallas Mom

Our family loved this evening of entertainment and fun and we can’t wait to visit Medieval Times Dallas again!

Medieval Times Winter - The Dallas Mom

Experience the New Show

Is your house filled with little Lords and Ladies of the royal court? Do they like to eat with their hands at the dinner table? Medieval Times is the perfect place to take your family back to the Middle Ages for an incredible night of epic battles and delicious food.

Medieval Times Winter - The Dallas Mom

Tickets: 40% OFF Adults / 20% OFF Kids

For the first time in Medieval Times’ 35-year history, a Queen has taken the throne. Her Majesty Dona Maria Isabella presides over a tournament of knights who gather in celebration to test their skill against one another in a series of games, jousting, and combat.

Medieval Times Winter - The Dallas Mom

The new story brings a series of changes to the show including new costumes, custom-designed and handmade armor, fight scenes, and musical score composed by Dr. Daniel May, who directed and recorded the composition in Kiev with the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine. Be among the first to experience the debut of our new show.

The Phantom of the Opera at Dallas Summer Musicals

01. the phantom of the opera - quentin oliver lee and eva tavares - photo by matthew murphy
Cameron Mackintosh’s spectacular new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA has come to Dallas, and let me tell you – it’s incredible.
phantom of the opera - dallas summer musicals - the dallas mom header
Presented by Dallas Summer Musicals and Broadway Across America at The Music Hall at Fair Park, it is showing from December 19 through January 6.
You may already know the story of Phantom of the Opera, but this production breathes fresh life into a familiar tale.
06. the phantom of the opera - the company performs masquerade - photo by alastair muir
This brand new North American tour features elaborate new sets. A highlight was a rotating piece that creatively housed several different settings. I especially loved the creative treatment of the Phantom’s lair.
We were invited into the theater ahead of the production to see the show’s legendary chandelier being outfitted with a few special effects of it’s own. This priceless piece weighs 2,000 pounds and travels with the production from city to city for this tour.
phantom of the opera - dallas summer musicals - the dallas mom chandelier
We also got to see a few of the costumes up close, including the Phantom’s famous cape. All the beads on the gowns are hand sewn. While a lot of the costumes are reproductions, a few pieces from the original show have been passed town to this tour.
phantom of the opera - dallas summer musicals - the dallas mom
You will hear all your favorite songs like “Music of the Night,” “All I Ask Of You,” and (my personal favorite) “Masquerade” performed by an impressive cast and orchestra of 52 performers.
It’s always a good idea to arrive early to performances at Dallas Summer Musical. If you have time to eat, they have a fine dining buffet available at the Crystal Terrace (you’ll probably want to make reservations ahead of time) or quick and casual dining at the Bistro upstairs.

Disney’s The Lion King has returned to Dallas Summer Musicals with a bang – or maybe I should say a “Roar!”

The Lion King Dallas Summer Musicals - The Dallas Mom Header

You can see The Lion King at the Music Hall at Fair Park from June 13 through July 7. The national touring group includes Mark Campbell as “Scar,” Gerald Ramsey as “Mufasa,” Mukelisiwe Goba as “Rafiki,” Nick Cordileone as “Timon,” Greg Jackson as “Zazu,” Ben Lipitz as “Pumbaa,” Jared Dixson as “Simba,” Nia Holloway as “Nala,” Keith Bennett as “Banzai,” Martina Sykes as “Shenzi” and Robbie Swift as “Ed.”

My daughter and I went to see the show and we were blown away. Mukelisiwe Goba as “Rafiki” was absolutely incredible – her voice is outstanding and her comedic timing is impeccable. My four year old couldn’t stop talking about her the entire car ride home.

We also loved Mark Campbell as “Scar” – he was the perfect villain. Someone you loved to hate. His scenes with the hyenas were among our favorites.

Know Before You Go:

Arrive Early

Traffic in Dallas can be unpredictable, so plan to arrive well before show time to allow for traffic and parking. They also close the doors right at show time and if you’re not in the theater, you’ll have to wait until after the opening number. (And let me just tell you, you do NOT want to miss the opening number! It is breathtaking.)

Experience the Savannah

Of course, before the show you’ll want to look through the merchandise and maybe grab a bite to eat, but for this production of The Lion King, Dallas Summer Musicals is offering a brand new experience called The Savannah.

The DSM Savannah is a chance to take it easy before the show in an air conditioned tent featuring food trucks with snacks for sale, face painting, and crafts for the kids.

 

 

There are even dedicated restroom facilities. Plus, each person who has a ticket to The Savannah gets a free snow cone from Kona Ice.

The Lion King Dallas Summer Musicals - The Dallas Mom 1The Lion King Dallas Summer Musicals - The Dallas Mom 5

We loved beating the traffic and avoiding the crowd while chilling out in a little oasis just outside the venue.

Grab a Booster

If you have a little one who’s not quite tall enough to see, Music Hall at Fair Park has you covered. It costs $3 to rent a booster seat for the show. The sit right down in the seat and elevate the child to the height of the arm rest. They are super plush and very comfortable – I know they made a huge difference in my daughter’s show experience.

The Lion King Dallas Summer Musicals - The Dallas Mom 9

We had a blast during our trip to Fair Park – it was actually my little one’s first live musical and I couldn’t have picked a better show. She has been singing and dancing her way around the house. I’ve been called into the living room to watch musicals every day and I love it.

The Lion King Dallas Summer Musicals - The Dallas Mom 7

If you want to inspire a passion for the arts in your family, I would wholeheartedly recommend taking them to see Dallas Summer Musical’s production of The Lion King at the Music Hall in Fair Park. It will be the highlight of your summer!

Enchant Christmas – The Best New Holiday Experience in DFW

We visited Enchant Christmas this past week and we were absolutely blown away. It was a blast!

Enchant Christmas 2017 (41 of 41)

The area was huge – the beloved Christkindyl Market was featured with some really unique vendors.

Enchant Christmas 2017 (4 of 41)

They also had more food trucks than I’ve ever seen in one location. Our favorites were Truck to Table – you must try the Brisket Nachos. You will dream about them!

And my forever favorite is The Butcher’s Son. Their Beef-n’-Cheesy Slider is the stuff of legends.

As soon as my 3-year-old saw the ice skating ring, she immediately started begging to skate.

Enchant Christmas 2017 (1 of 41)

We got dinner and walked around for a bit enjoying the live music.

Enchant Christmas 2017 (8 of 41)

But the only thing on my daughter’s mind was skating.

Enchant Christmas 2017 (10 of 41)

Of course, as soon as she put on her ice skates, she completely melted down. I knew she was just nervous, so I made her go out and try it anyway (when else is she going to be able to skate outdoors on real ice in the middle of Dallas!?).

Enchant Christmas 2017 (11 of 41)

Halfway around the rink, she was giggling and saying it was her FAVORITE thing ever.

Enchant Christmas 2017 (17 of 41)Enchant Christmas 2017 (16 of 41)

In fact when they were taking off their skates at the end of the night, she told me she was going to be an ice skater in the Olympics.

Enchant Christmas 2017 (23 of 41)

After skating, we made our way to the star attraction – the light maze. You can see the shining lights as you walk up to Enchant, so we were very excited to check it out.

When you walk in, you’re given a card from Santa asking you to help him find the reindeer. It’s a cute activity for the kiddos while the adults just enjoy the beauty of the lights.

I love that there were different sections of lights. One part featured giant ornaments while another had snowflakes.

Of course there were also all of the giant reindeer.

I won’t ruin the surprise, but Santa has a little treat for anyone who successfully finds all his reindeer.

It was an incredible night and we would absolutely visit again. I think Enchant Christmas has just become our family’s new favorite Holiday tradition!

5 Things to Do in Dallas when the Kids are Out of School

5 Things to Do in Dallas when Kids are Out of School

School’s out for summer! Of course, that means there are about 100 days of summer vacation to fill.

Now, I have no problem letting my kids get bored. Most of their summer days are spent making up things to do on their own. They might build a pirate ship out of sand in the backyard, make a puppet show with scraps of paper, or crate a band out of everything they can get their hands on in my kitchen.

But sometimes the Texas sun has us stuck indoors for days on end and we get a bit of cabin fever. It’s times like these I love living in Dallas because there is no shortage of fabulous things to do. Here are our Top 5 Cabin Fever Remedies.

Top 5 Things to Do in Dallas when the Kids are Out of School

Rosemeade Rainforest Aquatic Complex

There are tons of ways to get wet, but our top pick gives you a lot of bang for your buck! Just north of Dallas proper, you will the Rosemeade Rainforest Aquatic Complex. For less than $10, your kids can spend an entire day at the pool.

5 Things to Do in Dallas when Kids are Out of SchoolI love that there is something for everyone – from the littlest kiddos who can play in the one-foot-deep splash area to the most daring pre-teen who can dive off the diving boards and ride a few waterslides. Moms will love that there’s plenty of shade and a convenient parking lot that isn’t a mile away.

Dallas Zoo

This year for Easter, we chose to forego the plastic baskets full of chocolate and instead get our family season passes to the Dallas Zoo. We couldn’t be happier with our decision. We’ve already been several times this year and on our last visit we got to see a baby tiger, a baby elephant, and the brand new hippo exhibit.

5 Things to Do in Dallas when Kids are Out of SchoolIn addition to the exhibits and programs, they have a great little kids area with a petting zoo and a stream they can splash in.

5 Things to Do in Dallas when Kids are Out of SchoolThe best part? The incredible naps my kids took when we got home!

Mayor’s Summer Reading Program

Learning doesn’t have to stop while the kids are out of school. The Dallas Public Library has a fantastic summer reading program that will draw kids in with prizes and keep them reading all summer long. This summer, kids can earn free books and prizes like tickets to a Mavs game, the Dallas Zoo, or Dallas Children’s Theater.

Coppell Farmer’s Market

Of course, there are dozens of Farmer’s Markets throughout DFW. Some of the best are the Dallas Farmer’s Market and White Rock Lake Market. But we have found a gem in the Coppell Farmer’s Market.

Coppell Farmer's Market - 5 Things to Do in Dallas when Kids are Out of SchoolWe love it because I can visit the Farmer’s Market then the kids can play on the playground and on the splash pad – it’s a win for everyone!

Perot Museum of Nature and Science

I don’t think I will ever stop singing the Perot Museum’s praises. Filled with hands-on activities and educational experiences, kids of all ages will burn energy and use their brains.

5 Things to Do in Dallas when Kids are Out of SchoolSome of our favorite parts of the museum are the Engineering and Innovation Hall and the Children’s Museum in the basement. If you have littles don’t miss the sand pit outside the Children’s Museum where mini paleontologists can dig for dinosaur bones.
