we hope that you had a fantastic Easter Sunday a beautiful weekend and I got to tell you there’s an extra spring in my step over the weekend just because the weather was so amazing and tastic I know I just want to bottle it up and save it for I don’t know a day in August listen you know what I did yesterday finally drank some champagne Oh congratulations yeah finally had the bubbles and I can’t believe it was 40 days I feel good like I felt good I guess I didn’t realize how much champagne I drink I know it’s healthier to just not drink it at all but that’s no fun you had a little break yeah and Easter was great the boys had so much fun like looking for their eggs and all kinds of fun stuff everybody still does come to your house yes that is amazing it was I mean it’s sort of like Christmas morning if you’re a young kid like waiting for the magical things left behind by the bunny I know oh the innocence oh you know on Friday night we went this was like a belated birthday present for Londo we went to field and tides it was Good Friday so we had it you know do our part of some fried pimento and some fish it looks pretty too in the tostadas there that was a mushroom tostada so you would love that too that was fantastic and then we headed over to Jones hall for the Houston Symphony for music of Led Zeppelin oh that’s cool y’all I gotta tell you that the symphony first of all our Houston Symphony is like off the chain if that’s even a symphony phrase that I can use right I’m so I’m so what is it you’re so hip yeah so hip I’m not a regular mom I’m a cool mom no rules in this house and so it’s the symphony playing all the music of Led Zeppelin and Orlando loves him some Led Zeppelin’s so that’s the only thing he wanted for his birthday he found out that they were doing this tribute for all the music I knew way more Led Zeppelin songs than I thought I did I don’t know if I know Danny you do okay you do it was awesome though it was really really well done if you have a chance to go see you know we did that with Hanson we saw them perform so when if the symphony check out their their website because if something like this comes it’s called the pop series it is so good the conductor is awesome the crowd is incredible and they even had like a pulled somebody on the audience to do like a guest conducting and her name is Shawna and she did a great job she had a little wiggle in her behind you know she was dancing it was really cute she did a great job and an unexpected accommodation to something like the symphony along with Led Zeppelin yeah I don’t imagine those two things going together but they do so beautifully right they really do and that music was just fantastic and then of course you know early yesterday morning with the boys finding their Easter baskets and stickers and candy and all kinds of stuff whoa your Easter Bunny really goes all out really yeah I mean a little bit much yeah it does that looks very nice it was it was great it was such a fun weekend my in-laws are in town from Utah and so they’re back here again for some perfect weather so that’s they’re all coming in they’re here because of AJ’s first communion which is coming up this weekend so we need this good weather to stick around we got to have them come to Houston life and make a little appearance on my friends had such a good time on Friday it’s so much fun with them and we had a school tour and so we had a little studio audience what 25 people are selling like that which was so great and you all were so nice to them we had that’s part of the group there and it was so much fun just hanging out after the show the kids ran around breaking those cuss cojones and then we just saw that go yoga we went back well so my friend Malika who was here you know she’s the one she’s the mom of that one year old baby Elodie who we had on the show and we’ll Lika that morning she was texting me saying okay so texting me from like two floors up in her house and she’s like what’s the policy on jewelry and goat yoga and I said I mean well anything that you wear they’re gonna try to bite which they do and yeah I was having flashbacks to the day in the mall when first of all the goats got loose and we’re running very loudly and Rachael who owns goat yoga Houston which by the way is the place to go if you want to do yoga it’s so great they’re at net bar in I guess rice military is right right but we had so much fun and I think initially my friends were a little bit nervous about what to expect but it was great well I have to tell you I feel like there’s not a lot of yoga it’s more like a like an ab exercise cuz you’re laughing so hard you know you’re trying to hold those poses and I remember when we did it I was like I don’t hear anything you’re saying to me because I was laughing I couldn’t retain anything I was laughing so hard yeah but luckily rachel is such a cool yoga instructor that she kept moving explains off the top that it’s there are no rules in this class there are no rules in this house were not a regular mom I’m a cool mom that so she encourages people just to laugh and have a good time I think it’s time for us to get the goats back on Oh Houston like why not why not we’re willing to do anything here maybe we should do it outside this time no like maybe outside in the front line oh sure because remember last time we can run away from them no because they you know they’re goats they go they they’re like you when you stop by a CVS sometimes they have to use the bathroom I mop the celery juice that was a that was a two day thing I got my own my own experience I’m still drive Ramat eyes now I’m afraid to go to CBS cuz I’m afraid somebody’s gonna see me and they’re gonna be like oh she’s gotta go to the bathroom yeah you got to get like windshields like size glasses or just not go to CVS anymore or ya know I think you can still go there to use the bathroom they’ll gladly welcome you there Queen so it was such a beautiful day yesterday we went out on Buffalo Bayou – guess who I ran into out there in the neighborhood who that dude right there Dustin Stapleton yes your shirt you know what what happened to your shirt normally I don’t go shirtless in public ever addict what what is happening I don’t take my shirt off in front of everybody but it was such a beautiful day normally I just don’t know I just took it off we had to take our shirts off and we would see wearing Houston life sunglasses no I don’t think so I doubt it but we were riding bikes and it was so so beautiful it was so much fun and then yesterday after after that a bunch of us met up they do this annual thing called bunnies on the bayou it’s like this big it’s sort of like pride but in the spring okay and so we ran out there and ran into so many people friends of the show they were like half a dozen channel 2 people there love it and I love your hat in that photo from man ready mercantile yeah in the escape room in the crawfish well is a busy busy weekend so anyway we’re all rooting for our Rockets so yes you know I told you my in-laws are in town and my father-in-law pops hardcore jazz fan hardcore and I was like sorry pops the Jazz they’re going they’re going down sorry yeah I mean I’m not sorry he’s sorry you know but he recognizes that they are going down well not right not yet the irony of the Utah fans is that you know everyone’s like oh you’re from Salt Lake they’re so nice the fans there your face but the fans are mean and they remember we chatted about this how the NBA ejected multiple fans multiple fans you know I guess there’s this car the bad behavior card that if an official comes up to you you’re out banned for life no yes you can’t go back to a game correct me if I’m wrong but I’m almost certain there and I realize yeah because and the bad thing is some of these Utah fans are actually physically touching the players like they’ve actually touched them no touching yeah don’t ever touch me right well let’s answer yourself even this at a very young age we do it’s almost learning but speaking of our Rockets right yeah are feeling Rockets fever and we’re gonna play we’re gonna play in the beard so I’m gonna do so there’s this game called beard ball I think it’s I don’t know did James Harden invent this game I if not he should yeah if not he should be making money off I mean he should be are we standing up or what are we doing sitting what happens does the dust just sort of magically move like oh wow we are so high-tech here we are are we standing I was really really gonna stand ok so we’re gonna play this game the beard balls I don’t know where those you get to pick a beard what we both do you want to go first yeah I’ll pick up glasses and beard and then we have a card and for sake of time I’m just gonna put mine on as well oh that’s a good beer it’s like the handle bar it looks very realistic yeah on YouTube so pick a card and then we figure out like how to throw it or something yeah I guess there’s like an action so my bad toss bro take three paces from the player with the beard sit on the floor facing away from them toss the ball over your head and on to the beard okay you want to take a 11 to 3 well this is our first time playing he needs more than one fall no but you’ve got to stand right there because I only get one chance

chin while the player with the fever sits below you drop the ball onto the beard by lifting your chin I guess you’ll just sit down babe what hold the ball under your chin while the player with the beard sits below you drop the ball on 250r by lifting your chin this is very awkward awkward for me [Music] okay another round last time okay I think you’re ahead I don’t know oh this is interesting

certainly true from Cabo to Jamaica even Bermuda today we’re gonna have some travel deals last-minute and otherwise they will help you save big without blowing your budget plus kids and retirement in today’s she keep a report how to set financial goals for your family and stick to them so you don’t ruin your plans for the future very important topic there but before we get to all that New York Times bestselling author and health and fitness expert dr. Ian Smith is back in the house today he’s got a brand new book called clean and lean it’s all about 30 days 30 foods we should be eating and today he’s also got some of the body transformation secrets in his book Courtney he says we can lose 15 pounds if we stick to his plan that’s coming right up Akzo spring of course is a great time of year to get in shape and our next guest says you can lose 15 pounds over the next 30 days New York Times bestselling author and fitness expert dr. Ian Smith is here with easy ways to get back to the basic when it comes to food and also physical activity welcome back to the show always good to be back to see you guys so I cannot believe this book number 17 when you get to book number 17 how do you set this one apart well it’s interesting this may be the most effective of all night books I’ll tell you this you take clean eating meets intermittent fasting so clean eating is reducing processed ingredients in your foods intermittent fasting is a program where you have feeding windows alternating with fasting windows so you go back and forth both programs by themselves are very effective but in this case one plus one doesn’t equal two it actually equals three because the synergism is explosive we have a Facebook group called cleaner get leaner the results been amazing up to 15,000 30 days some lady from Canada lost 11 pounds and 13 days but the people like it because it’s flexible the foods are easy they’re affordable and when you do the intermittent fasting you’re driving your body into your fat stores one thing about if’ is it reduces belly fat it’s known for that so that makes me a little nervous because intermittent fasting means your tape for home what’s the amount of time that we’re not eating that’s right so the book gives you different plans based on what you like you can customize the entire book so some people do 16 hours of feeding eight hours of fasting with basically sleeping or you can go to 14 12 or you can go to 12 12 so you decide what you’re feeding and fasting windows will be obviously the more aggressive you are which are fasting window the more you’re gonna lose the more you’re gonna drive your body into your fat here’s the idea the idea is that when you’re fasting your body has no calories on board so it has to go somewhere to get the energy where does it go to your fat stores because fat is the storage form of energy so when you have that fasting period and you cannot break the fast which means you can have some coffee with a little bit of milk you could have some herbal tea and some water but no real calories because you want to keep driving your body into those fat stores there are a lot of different examples you have for us today breakfast lunch dinner I mean so many things that people can eat but there are a few no no’s on the list as well yes there are some note so we don’t want to drink soda even diet soda because diet soda is 200 times sweeter the sugar then regular sugar believe it or not you also want to stay away from frying foods so you can have some extra-virgin olive oil but make sure you saute your foods that’s important but a lot of good things you can have canned fruits and vegetables as long as they’re in their own juices no preservatives added and what I like about it about the program is that it’s flexible so yeah you can have some pasta it’s gotta be whole grain or whole wheat pasta you can have bread 100% whole grain or whole wheat so we’re taking things that typically you can’t have in a program and just eating them in a healthier way okay well that’s okay right yeah so all the meals are interchangeable in the book so if you’re vegan vegetarian pescetarian you can make it work for you this for example is one of the meals you could have you could have you know an egg omelet with some cheese with some veggies in it a slice the whole grain or whole wheat toast 100% some turkey bacon that is allowed on the program so this is a very very sizable breakfast people never complain about being hungry because there’s a lot of food to eat a salad is always easy to get anywhere you go these days I always advise hey do me a favor put some protein on it so some chicken or some fish is awesome what about salad dressing no cuz that people can run into a lot of cows yes well we’re gonna make one real fast but before we make one I want to show you dinner so dinner you can have steak if you want with a nice little green garden salad or you can have salmon and some vegetables as you can see affordable regular foods people probably already eating a lot of this already right and you get to all this in that feeding window I talked about so you get to eat all these foods so you never go hungry right some people say it’s too much food well it’s it’s a nice sized portion I think that’s what happens when people are on the quote-unquote diet that’s right they they are starving and so you’re not gonna do that you know now here’s a quick thing so here’s a honey balsamic vinaigrette that’s in the book the recipes in the book it’s it’s delicious so you guys can mix it up okay we have one cup of extra-virgin olive oil just kind of eyeball it yeah okay you have a tablespoon of organic honey okay then you have a quarter teaspoon of dry oregano and then a quarter teaspoon of white balsamic vinegar here that’s okay a little salt and pepper to taste dairy get in the action yeah right okay and then we have a little rosemary a half a teaspoon of rosemary hey then you mix all that up now what I did you can have some basil if you want depends if you like so you don’t like basil you can mix that up but smells I made some already for you so you can taste it okay taste it has a little sweet kick to it Oh cuz of the honey that’s right yeah that’s good right yeah so you just on your salad okay and the this is a clean dressing a lot of dressings you buy in stores they say low fat high in sugar right they say no sugar they’re high in fat yeah it takes three minutes to make these put in your refrigerator you have it for a long time yeah and you can even take that to work if you’re gonna plan on getting a salad later have that with you because that’s really the hidden talent people mess up in the condiments like they eat nicely then they dump it with creams and fats and calories so in clean and lean we say hey listen we want to have these ingredients but we’ll make sure they’re as clean as possible not perfect this book doesn’t ask you to eat perfectly it gives you exercises by the way we’ll do a little exercise later right half of the book is exercise but there are different tracts beginners intermediate and advanced and once again and our Facebook group 20,000 people have joined it cleaner get leaner and they all say that the plan is so customizable to who they are and what they want okay we got to talk about alcohol very quick yes allowed or not well as a purist know for 30 days but is a glass of red wine gonna kill you no it’s not gonna kill you but you need to do it during your feeding window during your feeding window so for example you’re feeding window could be 8 a.m. or 10 a.m. in the morning to 8 p.m. at night would be you eat all your meals and then from 8:00 at night to 10 the morning because you’re fasting window so you’re going to consume alcohol do it during your feeding window ok very doable like I said you can do all kinds of hours based on what you want to do you can start you know conservative to be aggressive but best to avoid that alcoholic yes if your appearance if you’re alright so still ahead as you just mentioned doctor Ian Smith will be back to show us five exercises that will get our hearts pumping and the best part is no gym membership no equipment none of that is required you can do it all at home but first how your kids can ruin your retirement did I read that correctly the financial tips you need to know to make sure your kids don’t leave you with an empty wallet [Music] when it comes to college the price for an education continues to soar every single year and not having a financial plan for your children’s college can possibly ruin your retirement here to make sure your kiddos don’t leave you empty-handed and ways to begin saving for your future is Private Wealth Advisor with a mere prize financial trevor Shakib oh welcome back to the show thank you how are you all this is an interesting topic when we think about our kids kind of the empty nesters but then the empty wallet scenario – if you haven’t really planned for it people might freak out when they hear about this because in a blink of an eye your kids are headed off to college yeah you know this is an interesting topic kind of a shocking one when you when you read it right when you first hear it but it’s based on an article that I just read in Barron’s and it’s very true I’m coming across it a lot with clients and potential people I meet with in our industry you know when it comes to education there’s a lot of different things you can do you can get loans and work-study and work but when it comes to retirement you’re either working longer or you’re reducing your lifestyle so that’s why this is a critical critical topic we’re talking about well on the costs are pretty staggering some of the facts for your private college nearly $50,000 per year on average and by the way I mean living expenses in tuition totally separate things it really adds adds up eighty percent of parents give some supportive financial support yeah so these are just the facts right here obviously we all know about college that’s a shocking statistic but the next couple really surprised me as well eighty percent of adults give financial support to their adult children that’s the key word they’re adults and then actually that number is 500 billion annually which is two times how much people are saving for retirement oh my god that’s unbelievable so adult children means that they’ve either gone back right so there’s still the the parents are still holding on to that responsibility of their children yeah and I think in the study it was age 21 or older but I mean you see it a lot I see it a lot with my clients where there are kids in mid 20s late 20s even mid 30s that are still living at home let’s talk about a 529 plan because this is one of the ways that people can start saving early yeah and that’s my second point what so what can we do just start early so if you’re watching you’ve got young kids start as soon as you can 529s or a great education vehicle in fact they’re probably the best education vehicle any savings is better than none so don’t you know I hear that all the time I don’t really have much well if you have 50 bucks a month just start 100 bucks a month and look this can add up it’s not on the screen but if you do fifty bucks a month for eighteen years assume 8% that’s approximately twenty two thousand five hundred if it’s a hundred a month that equates to forty five thousand so you got to get started early oh wow okay a little bit adds up all right and then also you say I mean this is you say this no matter what plan we’re looking at but those setting the education goals and sticking with them is sort of like setting your budget stick with it don’t stray from the path yeah so it all starts with a discussion and I’m always surprised when I meet with new couples or they’ve just had a child what was their experience what are we planning for is it four years a hundred percent any school in the country in Texas what if that takes them seven years to graduate you you really got to define this and then like you said Cortney don’t deviate so if they get into an Ivy League school and you’ve planned for a school in Texas you can’t completely change everything unless you understand it’s going to dramatically affect your retirement plan what about just telling your kids though like hey we want to try to help you but you can’t just expect us to pay for everything I mean that’s well that’s conversation yeah you know look there’s always a motion and when it’s your kids you know it’s difficult but that’s a great point you got to separate the emotion and then my fourth point is is don’t be afraid of some tough love so that definitely goes in your example but look you can’t afford even after college you can’t afford to be their bank forever and it’s probably not good for them to be in your house at age 35 either so they you just can’t afford it with the numbers and so tough love comes into the equation like here’s what we’ve got for college and if you want to go to Harvard well then you have to figure that out the rest of it on your own and let’s talk about of course return on investment that’s another con right yeah well everyone laughs when I say that especially my wife when I say let’s think through this but look if you approach it that way at least approach it that way that would change your perspective and so look at the cost of the college versus what their degrees gonna be in and what their salary might be meaning you probably don’t want to go to a college if you’re gonna be a teacher that cost sixty or seventy thousand a year if you’re gonna make forty or forty five thousand in your first year those numbers they’re starting to work and my final point here this is very prevalent a down payment for the kids that’s a nice thing to do but that’s not an investment it’s a good thing for them but it’s not a good thing for you now keep that in mind on the return on investment discussion some truf tough love from you trevor shakeela it’s great to see you as always folks if you would like more info on financial planning or if you’d like to schedule a complimentary initial consultation with trevor and it should keep a group you can call to eight one

lasers of Houston offers a customized program that promises to help you reach your goals patient Kenneth coswell recently stopped by to share an update on his progress along with CEO Laura Alexis okay Kenneth we got a chat about you because you we first chatted with you when was it it’s been 3-4 months how was it 54 pounds whenever I was here last yeah really I’m at a hundred not of weight loss in a hundred pounds yeah Kenneth I feel good I mean remember the day that you called innovative lasers of Houston here’s your before picture who’s that dude oh he wasn’t knees we haven’t look at he’s got so there’s the before pictures we got several pictures of you they’ll Kenneth on but those were your pants yeah those are the pants I’m about 11 pants eyes are smaller than a warder fantastic it was this something that you’ve kind of dealt with your whole life or this has been what no I’ve never wanted to die it my wife seen Laura on y’all’s program and said why don’t you just look I said okay so I looked and I said where let’s go down and try now cigar let’s go yeah it was time I wouldn’t do anything said I don’t tailgate not doing nothing right now I do just about anything I’m just going novice energy now don’t sit around anymore I’m going that is fantastic yep Laura I love hearing these stories especially accountants mean when you see not only the before pictures that we were showing our viewers but just the sheer size of the pants that you used to wear not the pants that you’re wearing today and the way that basically kennis life has changed from day one it’s incredible oh absolutely there’s so many patients that come in that feel the same way and we’re just filled with joy because we literally change people’s lives and let’s let’s talk about how this happens because when people come into into innovative lasers of Houston it’s the Zerona laser that basically what you’re offering is what has been changing for them right there’s Ramona laser is one of the key ingredients that we use now what is it Sirona laser the Zerona laser is an FDA approved laser that creates tiny microscopic tears into the fat cells when that happens the content of the fat cells seeped out naturally through bodily fluid such as urine and sweat and the patient shrinks so it’s very very very natural it doesn’t hurt it offers no downtime no swelling no bruising no pain no heat no cold so it’s just it’s a phenomenal that we use and this slide is really interesting this is basically the time-lapse from start to finish during a session walk this through walk us through this so when the patients come in initially after we put them into program undergoing the treatment as you can see on the very top slide you’ll see that the fatso is plump so as the laser is doing its job before a 20-minute session is over as you can see on the very bottom that fat cell has completely collapsed and all you’re left with is just the shell so when that happens on the outside you can actually is literally see the inch loss we guarantee 3 to 11 inches in only two weeks and we should mention this as fda-approved absolutely it’s extremely safe and I see you over here you’re nodding and you’re you’re agreeing so when you go in for your session and that you’re under the laser what do you feel nothing I sleep motions that it’s your relaxing spa moment now they’ve got radios in our Center this music difficulty a little downtime for oh yeah calm and the food right okay well let’s talk about the special offer Laura because I know so many people like Kenneth who are thinking maybe I should call maybe it’s time and as we mentioned to this program is designed per client that comes in and you you say this all the time one client is not shaped like the other right everybody’s

welcome back to the show listen it’s April why not start talking summer now yes otherwise we’re gonna be exactly right but it’s never too late though and one of your first options is just down the road Hotel Galvez so this is and this is a reminder that Texas goes on sale during the summer season as much of the southern tier states do so you’ll want to look at destinations that just need the foot traffic you’ll see some of the best bargains there Hotel Galvez you know about an hour drive from where we’re sitting right now right on the water there you know little island easy to get to and prices will drop nicely over the summer season $99 a night for travel through the summer season this is a beautiful four diamond hotel they’ve got a swim up bar at that pool there so you may not need to leave this hotel at all whatever it’s a great deal and it is it’s it’s amazing I love it okay let’s move on to Colorado we like that so Colorado so obviously some of these great ski destinations that’s when they’ll see their prices peak February March when the snow is really good the ski bunnies go in the snow melts the mountains are so there the five star hotels are still there they need you and you’ll see some great bargains there this is a great resort called the ritz-carlton bachelor golf in Avon Colorado at the very base of Beaver Creek Mountain gorgeous Four Diamond resort for five hundred dollars a night during the winter season if not more $1.99 for the summer season and you know the snow is gone which means what your horseback riding you’re going on guided hikes your fly-fishing and that White Glove service that draws those ski buffs during the winter season that doesn’t go away you’re still getting that over the summer season although you’re saving 50% quite honestly it’s the best place to escape the heat really you need to get away for a bit to escape our summer it’s perfect love Colorado put it on the summer to-do list right some place that is super close by the way you hop down to Mexico in what feels like five minutes this is the Hilton Los Cabos and I love this resort I love Los Cabos and like you said you get a breakfast at home and if you time it right you could maybe having a margarita at lunchtime oh yeah on the shores of Los Cabos this is the Hilton Los Cabos it’s and one of the very few swimmable beaches in Cabo San Lucas because a lot of those beaches are sort of relegated they’re in the Sea of Cortez you can swim on this beach they also have two infinity pools here the bar on-site the largest tequila selection on that stretch of Baja California so again you don’t have to leave the resort when you once you’re there and the price point yet from 179 to 219 based on when you travel breakfast is included and they do the two-for-one adventure combo so if you want to go dolphin excursion you can go for free kind of oh there’s a cloud in Los Cabos I mean there will summer season the reason the prices drop is that it can get a little bit more you know stormy a little dicey as far as a weather forecast is concerned but again you’re in that infinity pool you’re in that tequila bar you forget about the storm and all those rooms have an ocean view yeah that’s waking up with the ocean I have a friend who actually stayed there a couple of months ago blown away he loved that property a lot fantastic ok let’s move on to Bermuda so this is Bermuda this is now not the Caribbean other people think up in meters part of the Caribbean we’re talking a thousand miles north of Puerto Rico so the weather tends to we sort of escape a lot of that summertime dicey weather the Craven will see gorgeous pink sand beaches up there great property the Fairmont South Hampton for diamond resort on a cliff overlooking those pink sand beaches overlooking the waters there they have a gorgeous 31,000 square foot spa you can hang out in there all day ten restaurants just a beautiful lush resort in one of the great destinations there in the Atlantic the pheromone it’s not that oh my goodness I would go just for the spa that sounds unbelievable spa ok all-inclusive this is a great way to go because you know they’re gonna be no surprises you’re not gonna run up a huge tab let’s talk to makeup yeah so for folks who have not done the Caribbean and they want to do like an introductory experience the all-inclusive is a really safe way to go you want to research your resort make sure it’s the kind of resort you like but otherwise as it says most of what you’re gonna be doing and seeing and eating will be included this is a package with a company called vacation Express it takes you over to a Negril Jamaica and you say four nights at a great little boutique hotel right on a cliff that’s called the Samar I’m sorry cliff Hotel all-inclusive the price point between 629 and 745 depending on your travel dates but again that’s airfare for nights all inclusive all you can eat all you can sip as well oh now that sounds yes stay they’ll file bankruptcy a little bit about Legoland because this is great for the whole family you have a family yeah indeed three kids and I but I didn’t take them with me on this on this research explosion last week it was research to Legoland Florida so if you’re thinking about Orlando I mean there’s it’s sort of a theme park mecca obviously this is Legoland about an hour outside of Orlando Airport this is the brand-new lego movie world so if you’ve seen the movies I mean they’ve wrecked in more than half a billion dollars worldwide three new rides they’ve got a new dining spot on the property it’s at two acres the large expansion that parks that were done this matches the flight their technology there is fantastic it’s a four and a half a minute immersive but if your kids especially ages 2 to 12 if they’re into Legos Lego characters great destination for them they’ve got two hotels there on the property so you can make it sort of a one or two night stay and really immerse yourself 150 acre park but this new inclusion really brings those movies to life as you know in San Antonio they’re Legoland Discovery Center is opening up April 12th yes that’s sort of a lego
