Friends, we are ONE year old!! For one year, Out and About Friends has been bringing you new events, locations, parks or amusements to check out in the Metroplex. We have sincerely enjoyed helping you discover new places and providing you with helpful information to know before you go.
We do this blog because we have a passion for taking our kids to new places, and honestly want to help other parents along the way.
When we first became mothers (4 years ago!!!) we had no clue where to take our babies. We found ourselves Googling “where to take my baby in DFW” (go ahead and raise your hand if you’ve done that too) and became frustrated with the results. We asked ourselves, “Why is there not a website on the internet that tells us exactly where to go, what to bring and maybe even has a promo code attached?”
We couldn’t find it, so we created it. If you are using our site, first of all, thank you! Secondly, we want to make sure it is as user-friendly as possible.
Here are a few tips to make the most of our site:
Step 1: Sign up for our email list. We only send one email a week (our newest blog review). Signing up will ensure you don’t miss a single review!
Step 2: Like us on Facebook (notifications too!) and Instagram! With Facebook changing it’s Business Settings, it is possible you’ll never see our posts unless you Like AND turn on our Facebook notifications.
Step 3: Pin us on Pinterest! I don’t cook anything that isn’t pinned on my board. You can Pin places to go so you don’t forget about them!
Step 4: Use our Home page and Menu bar to find what you’re looking for. Our menu is categorized by county: Tarrant, Denton, Dallas, and Collin. After that, each place is listed as outdoors or indoors. Additionally, we have reviews of places outside of DFW as well as Seasonal. Make sure to check out what’s happening this Christmas season under Seasonal-Winter. We will have new fun events for 2017 coming next week!!
Step 5: Use our Category Cloud to find what you’re looking for. You can simply click on any of the words i.e. FREE, PARK, WATER PARK, CHRISTMAS and it will take you to any of our blog reviews that have those words listed. It’s SO easy to find exactly what you are looking for.
Step 6: Share this with your friends! You might know about these amazing places but there could be a friend or a friend of a friend, who is wishing she knew where to go. Our site is free! We just want to help you have more fun with your kids and support our community along the way.
We hope the past year has been as much fun for you as it has been for us. We have been to a lot of amazing places and we truly feel blessed to live in such a fun and exciting area like DFW. Keep getting out and about and have fun!!!
