It was a beautiful day.  The temperature was so perfect that we were able to stay the whole time.  So here’s the one of the much awaited event of the year in Wylie – the National Night Out (NNO) 2016.  Since we discovered this special event two years ago, my darling and I together with my cousins join the occasion. This is also an event of appreciation to the community service workers who help us keep our community safe in peace and order.  Also, this is an opportunity to meet the your neighbors.

So at the NNO there were exhibits of firetrucks and air medics, distribution of safety guidelines courtesy of the city police department, K-9 training show, barrel ride, bounce houses, obstacle course, free food and games,  and giveaways of complimentary items from sponsors and vendors.  And, of course, fireworks.

We had so much fun.  This is an annual celebration every first Tuesday of October.

Summer is here!  Kids love being at the spray grounds and splash parks.  My darling daughter and I visited her grandparents last weekend and we went to the splash park nearby.  She had so much fun.  I joined her and we both had a great time.

National Night Out ( Momimhar posted on October 8th, 2014 )

On our way home from my work last night, I remembered to stop by at someone’s house to pick up a pre-owned Mickey Mouse toddler dress sold to me for $3.  It was from a local online garage sale group on Facebook.  Unfortunately, the toddler dress was not on the porch so my darling daughter and I headed home.  We passed thru downtown Wylie and I saw some barricades and when I looked around, the park was all lit up.  I thought something nice is going on at the park.  So I told DD about it and we agreed to stop by and look.  It was about 7:30 P.M.

So many people were there – grown ups, big kids, small kids, and babies.  There were animals, too.  I didn’t have much time to take photos of the tents and booths because K was excited to look at the animals.  It was a mini Petting Zoo.  There were two goats, a sheep, and a pig.  Boy, how she loved that!  There was a super big inflatable bounce and slide but we didn’t go there because it was so high and K said she liked petting the animals better.

Then we head to the playground because K wanted to swing but the four swings were occupied.  So she went to the other playground set.  She had fun climbing up and down the stairs and sliding down the small and big slides.   Then I heard the emcee said that it was 10 minutes before the fireworks.  So we waited for it before we went home.  It was nice.  K said, “I love watching fireworks.”  “Me, too,” I said.  After the fireworks, I let K play for 20 minutes then we head home.



By the way, on our way to the car, I asked someone what’s the special event about.  He said it was National Night Out for the city.

Kids Enjoy Picnics At The Park ( Momimhar posted on May 8th, 2013 )

My darling daughter and I went to join a picnic with friends at Bob Woodruff Park in Plano, Texas this afternoon.  It was a wonderful breezy sunny day to have a picnic.  Though it was a quick invite, we were able to go.

My daughter had a great time at the park.  Even before we started eating lunch, the playground caught her attention.  She was bugging me about it.


The park has a big playground. Kids enjoyed climbing, swinging, sliding, and running around.

But before we head to the park, we stopped at a grocery store to buy some drinks for everyone.  Did I mention that my toddler girl has started to have an appetite with ice cream?  And so, I bought a couple of boxes of ice cream pops.  She enjoys those things.

We had a great lunch.  Thanks to my girl friends who brought Filipino foods to share with.  I also packed lunch and snacks for my darling daughter.  I always do it whenever we go travel around.  She likes snacking.  Also, I avoid buying from fast food.  I don’t want spend too much.  It is better to pack snacks or lunch for your kids wherever you go.  You’ll never know what they might ask while you are traveling.

And for the safety of your kids in the park, don’t let them go to the playground by themselves.  Keep an eye on them and go with them if they want to play in the playground.  Remember that there are also strangers around in the park.  So don’t be careless.  In warm weather like this, it’s great to put sunscreen on your kids’ and your skin to avoid sunburn.  Always let them drink water or their favorite juice for hydration.  And keep a hand sanitizer handy in your handbag.


Little Ms. Nosy. She was trying to comfort the crying little girl.


She likes climbing up and down the stairs.


Saw a dinosaur skeleton. Of course, never ending questions.


This photo is one of the best, I think. It’s my favorite action photo. These two little girls were playing with the ball they found in the park.


Tired, me and the girls walked back to our shady spot under the tree and had a cool and refreshing snacks and drinks.

Parks are one of the best places to take your kids for a picnic or for play this season.  They love the outdoors as much as we do.  It’s great having fun and and bonding with your kids, family, and friends in the parks without spending much money.
