round rock: A "Guest Post" from My Wife Pam - Read about her visit with our kids to the Rockin' River Family Aquatic Center - 07/03/08 05:34 PM
My wife, Pam, took our three kids to meet some new friends yesterday in Round Rock at the "Rockin' River Family Aquatic Center".  This is her review below.  I think you will begin to see why I love her so much.  Make sure you really read it - you will be entertained.

There are only three things that scare moms more than the prospect of nuclear war:  puberty, permanent markers, and waterparks.

Bearing that in mind, and trying to momentarily forget the scalp laceration I received at a water park when I was a child, I donned my $5 WalMart … (17 comments)

round rock: Forest Creek Homes for Sale - Round Rock, TX - 05/10/08 03:55 PM

I have lived near Forest Creek since 1995, and I have sold countless homes in this neighborhood.  Well, maybe not countless, but enough that I know what I am doing there and I know that it has great value. 
With a challenging and immaculate golf course, it is no mystery why it remains a popular destination both for those moving up within the Round Rock area and for golf fanatics and retirees as well.  Additionally, Forest Creek Elementary is perennially well-ranked with the Texas Education Agency's accountability system. 
If you are considering this particular area, you might be interested in seeing … (8 comments)

round rock: Round Rock Restaurant Review - La Margarita - 05/10/08 03:23 PM
My wife and I took our three kids to La Margarita tonight, which is located in north Round Rock, just south of 3406 on the southbound frontage road of I-35. 
I had heard some great things about this place from a friend of mine who called it his "favorite Mexican restaurant".  Overall, I was pleased with the outcome, and we will likely return.
The kids each tried something different from the kids' menu.  Our youngest really enjoyed the chicken strips and fries, although at age two she is not very discerning yet.  My older daughter, who is seven, finished all of her beef … (4 comments)

round rock: Forest Creek Home Sales - Round Rock - Market Analysis - January 2008 - 01/28/08 01:41 PM

 
Forest Creek is a lovely master-planned golf course community located in east Round Rock, just minutes from Dell Computer.  Having played the course a number of times with my friends, I can attest to both its beauty and its difficulty.  Granted, I am not really a stellar golfer, but it is among the more challenging courses in this part of town.

round rock: Round Rock Restaurant Review - Zorba Greek Restaurant - 12/27/07 09:54 AM
 
Yesterday, while my mom was still in town, we decided to go do a bit of shopping with the whole family.  We were headed to Lakeline Mall, and we originally considered going to that area to eat.  On the way there, I decided that would be ill-advised, considering it was the day after Christmas and it was exactly "lunchtime" (i.e. around noon).  Instead, we opted to go to Zorba, which is a Greek restaurant located near Dell in Round Rock, just in front of the Wal-Mart. 
 
 
Although the food was superb, the communication skills of the employees who were placed in … (15 comments)

round rock: What Can I Buy in the Austin, Texas area for Under $150,000? Seriously? - 12/22/07 07:23 AM

round rock: Round Rock - Pflugerville Market Report - 08/12/07 06:55 PM
According to the Austin area MLS, the average price in the Round Rock area increased by $16,273 for June 2007 from the same period last year.  For Pflugerville, prices increased by $17,748.  For both areas taken together, there were 69 fewer homes sold for June. 
June was slower overall for Austin's market, primarily because of the near-constant rains over the past 60 days.  Large projects in Austin are behind by 45 days or more. 
Hopefully, the selling season will extend longer than average this year, since many potential buyers delayed purchasing while waiting for the weather to abate.
