Weekend Snapshots | 4

I have been MIA for the past week.  We went took Spring Break off with the family.  Our vacation kinda felt like one long weekend.  You know, vacation time is never enough time.  You need a vacation from the vacation to catch up.  No time to catch up just got to jump back into the flow of things.  But you do get to catch up on see what I was up to this and last weekend on this week's edition of Weekend Snapshots brought to you by and The Reinvention of Jessica.

We ate some deliciousness.  While traveling we ate some yummy food.  One of our stops was a candy store that had some treats you may have not ever tried or thought of trying.  Like the Tajin apple, Elote preparado, Stuffed Cucumbers and the Chamoyada Raspa. 
Some of these treats may look gross to you but they are so good.  The sweet, sour, and spicy treats are not your typical snow cone, candied apple, or cucumber treats.  I am not sure where the origin of this original was but they are some Hispanic treats and not found in your typical candy stores.  This store did have a lot of other treats.  It was candy land heaven for any kid or candy lover like me.
 This was one of stops in Corpus Christi - Candylandia Candyshop on 1045 Airline Rd.

We checked off another park from our park bucket list by visiting Discovery Green.  It is a park that is open everyday at the heart of Downtown.  They host several events, some which are free.  You can check out their calendar on their website like I did. 

This day's event included making butterflies, getting stick on tattoos, playing on the playground, watching dance crews and dancing to the beat of her own heart beat!
Discovery Green has been nominated by USA Today as one of the Top 20 Best City Parks in the nation!  If you have been to the park and love it, you should vote daily at  You can even vote from your phone.  Hurry and vote because the voting ends on March 28.
