There are a lot of family friendly activities in Houston, here are some of my favorites. Cooper from Cavender’s Boot City

HOUSTON The Natural Science Museum has a lot of stuff. There are permanent collections of minerals, natural history exhibits, a planetarium with laser shows and an Imax theater, a butterfly habitat, a paleontology exhibit with dinosaurs,and a new chemistry hall. This place is very crowded, especially on weekends, and you should call in advance for reservations for the Imax, planetarium and butterfly exhibit. The Cockrell Butterfly Center at the Houston Museum of Natural Science is a stunning, living exhibit that showcases hundreds of live butterflies in a naturalistic t li ti rainforest i f t setting. tti TThe central conservatory is a dramatic three-story glass cone filled with tropical plants and exotic butterflies. During a typical visit, one can expect to see 50 to 60 different species of the world’s largest and most colorful butterfly species, flying through the balmy air, hovering over flowers or sipping fruit juice – and occasionally, landing on visitors! Downtown Aquarium Sea creatures of every shape and size are on view at the Downtown Aquarium. The Sunken Temple exhibit reveals the wonders of ancient Mayan culture and the underwater world, while a journey on the Shark Voyage gives you an intimate view of the ocean's most infamous predators. A great place for family fun, the aquarium also features outdoor attractions such as the 100-foot Diving Bell Ferris Wheel and the Dancing Fountains. Drink and dine at the Aquarium Restaurant or the Dive Lounge. And while there, make sure to check out the new white tigers exhibit.

Jack & Pamela Wright, owners

I’ve been in the pawn business for approximately 10 years; the last two years here at the wonderful Wright Pawn and Jewelry. Just when you think you’ve seen it all something new comes through the door. The best thing about this store is Jack and Pamela Wright! They are the most fair and professional business owners I have ever been involved with. They genuinely love their customers, their business and their employees.

I have worked for 4 years in the jewelry business as a GIA Accredited Jewelry Professional; the last two years at Wright Pawn and Jewelry. I truly love my job because no two days are alike. I also really enjoy helping customers find the “perfect” gift and being a part of their special moment in life. The best part of working at Wright Pawn and Jewelry is getting to work with such great people.

Linda Calk I have been working at Wright Pawn and Jewelry for over 2 years and every day is a unique day full of new experiences. Working in this environment has given me a new perspective of the pawn business. Pamela and Jack Wright make this business the “Wright” place to be, and the “Wright” place to work! It’s an honor to work with highcaliber people like Pamela and Jack.

Jarah E. Flores Eight years of pawn experience makes me realize my love, passion and dedication for this industry. I especially love my job because of the people I work with and being able to help customers. But the best thing is working every day for Wright Pawn and Jewelry.
