As Christmas approaches, chances are your children have a list of toys they want Santa to bring them. While toys can be fun and allow kids to use their imaginations, experiences can be memorable and teaching tool for little ones. As we get older, we come to understand that life isn’t about owning things – it’s about the experiences we share with one another. Making the most of life can be about collecting action figures – if that’s something you love! However, why not spend the money on experiences that you can have with your family? If you’re looking for a pre-holiday celebration to attend with your family, don’t miss out on the Houston Hot Air Balloon Festival where you can take a hot air balloon ride and much more!
