Join Us As We Go… Hoppin’ Around H-Town 2016 {HMB’s 2nd Annual Summer Play Date Series Announcement}

Neon Wilderness

School’s out and temps are rising!  Pulling your hair out yet?  Have no fear… Our 2016 Hoppin’ Around H-Town Summer Play Date Series is here!  Phew. Oh, and we even have your summer uniform planned with some ADORABLE matching shirts for you and the kids – just add shorts.  {Heads up… The pre-order sale ends SOON, more info on that below!!}  For the next three months, we will host a new and unique play date every week.  From swimming to cooking to painting and more, we will be offering a variety of activities for a variety of ages all around Houston for as little as $5 per child.  There is no cost for adults to attend, just one ticket per child which covers the activity and a snack!  Affordable, air-conditioned fun – where can I sign-up?!?

Each and every Tuesday {starting May 31st}, we will post all of the details and open up ticket sales for the next week’s play date.  Tickets will be incredibly limited and quantities will vary depending on the location, so it will be important to mark your calendars and purchase your tickets as soon as they go live.  {Last year, some of the play dates sold out in just four minutes.  You read that right – FOUR MINUTES.}  And if you haven’t already, be sure to join our Hoppin’ Around H-Town Facebook Event Group as that is a great place to stay up to date on all of these events and other fun summer info too!

Before we spill the beans on the play date details, we must give an ENORMOUS shout out and thank you to our generous title sponsor Neighbors Emergency Center!  If you need a helping hand, know that you can count on your Neighbors – a top notch emergency center that believes in providing extraordinary care and is dedicated to making lives better every day.  When a medical emergency happens, it can be scary for us mamas.  But we love knowing that Neighbors Emergency Center provides exceptional medical care from local board certified physicians for us and our family, 24/7, 365 days a year, with little to no wait time. {You can visit for more information and to find the Houston area location closest to you.}
