Luxury Cabin Experience Family and Friends Summer Outing 2021

Lakeside Mansion Luxury Cabin – Hochatown, Oklahoma

We were so glad we got to join my friends in a luxury cabin stay this Summer Break. It’s been a long overdue get-together plan. So happy that it went through. We rented an eight-bedroom with seven bathrooms luxury cabin in Hochatown, Oklahoma. It is called the Lakeside Mansion. The cabin was so beautiful and very homey. The location’s good with a pond in the back where you can do some fishing. In fact, my darling daughter caught three blue gills. 🙂

The cabin’s kitchen was spacious, and it has two dining areas. The living room was big enough for dancing and singing karaoke. 🙂 There were five bedrooms upstairs. One of the rooms had two sets of bunk beds. The cabin also had two entertainment rooms and a veranda. Downstairs had three bedrooms. One of them was a separate.

There’s also an outdoor jacuzzi and a huge patio. The cabin was fully-furnished, so we didn’t really need to bring any pots and pans, even dinnerware and flatware. But we brought disposable plates and utensils just in case. We were eight families staying, so we brought ingredients for the food we were cooking for everyone. It was a three-night stay and things to-do was planned ahead of time.

The Lakeside Mansion luxury cabin is located a few minutes away from Beaver’s State Park. It was very convenient.

Family Beach Holiday Gulf Shores, Alabama

Wave boarding – Gulf Shores, Alabama

Family beach vacation was granted. It was an awesome beach holiday. Darling daughter was very happy that we were able to go to the beach this summer and had a great trip to Gulf Shores, Alabama. We left Texas Saturday morning, stopped in Slidell, Louisiana to spend the night, then headed to Gulf Shores the next day. It was a very long drive but it was worth it. We enjoyed our beach time and exploring during the five days stay.

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.
