I hope you you all enjoyed the list of summer activities available for kids in my last post.  In the office we all had a great time talking about the list of summer activities in North Texas in my last post that we created another list of summer activities for families and kids in North Texas!   If this is your first summer as a single parent or even if it isn’t, we think you’ll find something that sounds like a great idea on our list.

Frisco RoughRiders 

American Airlines Center, Public Tours

Cowboys Stadium Public Tours
