I’m so touched how people are reaching out their hands to help the victims of the Hurricane Harvey in South Texas, especially in the city of Houston. It only means that there are still goodhearted people left in this world. God bless Texas…God bless America.
Spray Park at the Celebration Park in Allen, TX
Summer is just around the corner my friends. What are your plans to beat the heat? Are you heading to the beach or to a cold place this summer?
While you are in the process of finalizing your summer vacation plans, take your kids to splash park or a spray park near you. Children enjoy anything involving water fun during the summer.
My cousin and a few mom friends took our girls to the spray park in Allen. It is quite a bit of a drive but we like it there better because the spray park has more than five water play equipment that the children enjoy. Next to the spray park is a big playground with swings and all. There is also a pavilion with tables and chairs for picnics. For some relaxation time, visitors can also enjoy having a good conversation under the shady trees along side of the spray park.
Banana Boat Sunscreen and sunglasses.
There is so much joy in the children’s eyes splashing and playing with the water in the spray park. Just don’t forget to re-apply your trusted sunscreen on your little ones’ skin for protection against the harmful sun rays. My darling daughter and I use Banana Boat Sunscreen Spray with SPF 50+. It is non-greasy and easy to apply sunscreen spray. Important: Close eyes when spraying on the face. Sunglasses are an essential this summertime, too. They protect your eyes from harmful glare of the sun. For glare sensitive people like me, I always wear sunglasses outdoors. They are a must-have accessories.
So whatever you decide to do outdoors this summer, always bring sunscreen and wear sunglasses.
We got some snow here in North Texas including Collin County this afternoon and hard freeze warning is up until tomorrow, Saturday, morning according to NWS Dallas-Fort Worth.
Y’all be extra careful on the road and stay warm in your homes. Don’t go out unless very necessary. For more information visit http://www.weather.gov/fwd/ .

We had a great night at the National Night Out last two Tuesdays ago. It was an event that we’re looking forward to every October of the year. This National Night Out or NNO is held in appreciation to our community’s first responders (see: responder).

There are so many activities going in a National Night Out: pony rides, bounce houses, giveaways from sponsors, free food, free music, K9 show, barrel ride…to name a few. This also a good time to meet and know your neighbors. This way, we can help each other in fighting crimes in our communities. This is held usually in big areas like city parks.
After all the fun activities, NNO always ended with a fabulous fireworks show. We loved it.
