Starting The Summer Break At The Spray Park In Celebration Park

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.

Cheesecake Deliciousness At The Cheesecake Factory

Cheesecake Factory Restaurant Bakery And Bar in Allen, Texas

It was just recently when my daughter and I learned about the Cheesecake Factory.  If it weren’t from my friend H and cousin E, we could have been missing the deliciousness of their cheesecakes.

After our trip to Galleria Mall in Dallas for the very first time last month, my cousin and I, together with our little girls, drove to Allen to buy some of their yummy cheesecake.  We learned that it was the last day of their Buy One Slice for Half The Price promotion.  Sure thing the restaurant was packed with people. Some of the customers were waiting to be seated. And most of them are waiting for their orders over the counter-that includes us.  It was 30 minutes to closing time that night we went there.  So we had to think fast of what kind of cheesecake we should get.  Luckily the line was moving quickly so we placed and paid our order immediately.  In about 20 minutes, we’re out of there.

My favorite so far is the Red Velvet Cheesecake.  I super love it!!! Umm-uhm.  So creamy and rich.  Have you tried it?  If not, you better.  $7.95 per slice is worth it.  It’s a decent slice size, too.  If you learn about a promotion from the Cheesecake Factory, I highly recommend you avail it because it doesn’t happen very often.  🙂
