Makes A Good Souvenir

Road travel going out of town is always fun especially if we are entertained by good and beautiful music in our vehicles.  With good sound system installed, what more can you ask for?  With high technology improving so much today, we can play and listen to our favorite modern and Oldies Music with the use of the iPod or even an iPad.

Many of us love music.  To me, songs from the past are the best and the most relaxing to listen to.  I would love to collect or compile oldies music in a CD when I get the chance.  It will surely make a good souvenir too.

I like listening to music while driving because it breaks the road noise and hypnotism.  Of course, I do listen in moderate volume so it won’t be distracting.

Day Four, July 7: Ready To Go Home

We only spent overnight in Tyler.  After an exhausting day yesterday, we are ready to go home and relax.  We had a great July 4th weekend travel though. We went to see Broken Bow Lake and strolled around Beavers Bend State Park and Resort.  Even if time was short, my daughter enjoyed splashing into the water at the resort.

Camping is one of the main outdoor activity that is fun to do in State Parks like Beavers Bend in Broken Bow, Oklahoma.  There is a big camping area at the resort.  There is a location for RVs, camping trailers, and tents.  Nature trekking, hiking, and bird watching are also exciting.  My husband said that visitors can rent a cabin located inside the park  resort.  We are looking forward to going back to Broken Bow again and rent a cabin and spend a couple of days there with other family so we will have more time to explore the beautiful place.

My father-in-law was teasing me and my husband because an entertainment complex is right across the hotel where we stayed and we did not go visit.  Temptation was there.  I guess you know what I mean.  🙂 As we were preparing to leave, my husband’s nephew came to see baby and spent a couple of hours playing.  Then we head home.  And that’s Day 4.

Every Picture Is Worth Keeping

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Astrobrights Papers by Neenah Paper for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Taking pictures is one of the essential thing to do when on vacation or while on a road travel.  Unique captures of beautiful scenery and inspiring moments are worth keeping.  I love taking pictures.  Even an insect like a grasshopper that I see on my car window is interesting.  What more than your kids playing with the splashing waves on the shore while picking up shells during your summer beach vacation?

We can do different kinds of record keeping of our vacation pictures.  We can either put them on a CD or in a scrapbook.  I like the scrapbook better because I can create some art to put around the photos.  The nicest paper to use for scrapbooking are AstroBrights papers.  They are more brilliant colors that will definitely catch attention.  These papers can be used for making invitations, flyers, home and school crafts.

Speaking of school, Back To School season is fast approaching.  School supplies are part of the budget and the items that we do not want to forget.  AstroBright papers are also great for school craft projects.  Not only for the students’ use themselves but also for the schools’ own presentation needs.  As you know, AstroBrights has a sweepstakes for everyone.  Your local elementary school will benefit by entering the “Give A Brighter Year” sweepstakes.  You can win a cash prize and school supplies valued at $30,000 for the school of your choice.  Joining is easy.  You can participate in the “Make Something AstroBright” design challenges-it can be a home decor, crafts, etc. for a chance to win papers and other prizes.  Who knows, your great unique creativity will make you become a winner.

I would to have some AstroBrights papers for my scrapbook.  I have lots of pictures from our previous vacation for my family and friends see.  But I want them laid prettily in the pages of the scrapbook so they will look exciting.  The brilliant papers will add beauty to it.

How about you?  How do you treasure your vacation pictures?
