Pool, balloons, party
There are a lot of fun things going on this summer vacation. Besides swimming classes for darling daughter, birthday parties and special event invitations are keep coming in.
Yesterday, DD got invited to a birthday pool party. It was not a Luau Party. Just a typical kids pool party. Darling daughter enjoyed it very much. As you know, she likes swimming. My dear friends and I watched over the young ones because the pool was quite deep. That is why wearing a life preserver is very important even in a shallow pool. Age-appropriate and US Coast Guard approved life jackets should always be handy, and adult supervision is advised on young children.
Friends, happy kids, birthday party
As for the party, my dear friends and I had fun catching up while the kids were swimming in the pool. This is the very first time K and I went to a pool party. There were lots of food and we met new friends. It was awesome.
Bella’s birthday cake 🙂
We always enjoy having company and shooting fireworks on 4th of July Independence Day celebration. We are not great at hosting parties but we make sure we have lots of food to accommodate our guests.
Here is our simple menu:
Pancit (rice noodles)
Smoked red snapper
Smoked hotdogs for kids
Tomatoes and cucumbers salad
Our friends also brought some delicious food and desserts to share.
Since we do not have a big dining area, we bought a couple of tables and chairs from Walmart. I bought two long blue rectangular table covers to cover the tables. Adding patriotic banners around each table made it look pretty neat.
Then around 9:00 P.M., we started shooting fireworks until 11:00 P.M.
My darling daughter and I had a great time at my friend’s home last night. She and her husband hosted a birthday party for three of our friends, and it was our second sleep-over their house. There were dancing and lots of fun games. K enjoyed the dancing part. There were lots of food, drinks, and dessert. Though it was grownups’ birthday party, the young ones were given the time to have fun dancing and play kids’ games at the party. When it was time for bed, we got ready and tucked ourselves to bed at around 11:00 P.M.
We thought we were able to swim at my friend’s pool this morning but it rained very hard with thunder and lightning. So we will just come over next time to swim. 🙂
Royal blue graduation gowns.

Oh my…it is the last week of school. Summer is just around the corner. I can feel the summer heat already. Speaking of last week of school, this week is my daughter’s Kindergarten graduation. Yes, my friends. K is is First Grade ready. I am very excited. The folks are coming over for K’s graduation day. It is a very special day for the family.
I am trying to get myself ready for the special occasion-beauty wise. Yes, my friends. I would like to look great on my daughter’s graduation day. But my skin is not cooperating. My hormones are messing up with my plans. 🙂 At least I would like my hair to look amazing. I have a thin and frizzy hair. It is hard to manage as well. Going to the salon is just not a thing for me-time wise. So I am browsing the Internet for wig websites.
Yup. Considering to wear a lace front wig would be a great idea. There are many selections of lace front wigs on Divatress.com that are very adorable. I hope will be able to find the perfect one. The sooner the better. This is the time that will challenge your time management and budgeting skills. So wish me luck, my friends.
