Essentials For Every Field Day ( Momimhar posted on May 26th, 2018 )

Students had fun at the Field Day games

Water slide was K’s favorite at the Field Day.

The classic game of Tug-O-War. Field Day 2018.

Yesterday, Friday, was Field Day at K’s school. Everyone was very busy preparing the outdoor games, obstacle courses, bounce house, and water slide.  The children were very excited and couldn’t wait for the special day to come.

The night before, I prepared the important things K may need according to the school’s notice-sunscreen, towel, bottled water, change clothes, and snack/sack lunch.

Sunscreen

Because all the activities are outdoors and late Spring in Texas start to get really hot, it is very necessary to put on sunscreen. Even if it is a cloudy weather, putting on sunscreen is highly recommended to prevent getting sunburns especially on young children’s skin.  We’ve been using Banana Boat Sun Comfort Sunscreen Spray.  It has been our trusted protection against harmful UV rays for years whenever we go outdoors or to the beach.  It’s non-sticky feel after spraying gives it the advantage.

Towel and Change Clothes

Usually field day activities include water games.  Darling daughter said the water slide was her favorite among all the fun games yesterday. So she brought a towel and change clothes because, boy, the students were soaking wet yesterday from the water slide and sponge battle. They had a lot of fun.

Bottled Water

Of course, with constant movement in the heat, the kids needed hydration. And the most convenient item to bring was bottled water.  The only thing was, there’s no place to put those drinks in.  The crate was full of towels. So I had to look for a big plastic bag to put all those drinks in so I can carry them around.  Gladly one of the staff at the sign in area under the shade of the trees had an extra big plastic bag.

Sack Lunch and Snack 

I don’t remember if I ordered a sack lunch for K from the cafeteria weeks before the field day. So I packed her lunch anyway just in case I didn’t.  After the students’ completed all the outdoor activities, they went back to the classrooms and changed.  Then they proceed to the cafeteria for the dance party and yearbook signing. The students ate lunch in their respective classrooms after.

It was an awesome fun day. Good thing the First Graders were the first ones in the schedule to go outdoors before it got too hot at mid day. To end the day, they had Kona Ice to cool them off.  What a great day!

Throwback: Summer 2015 At Sea World San Antonio #SeaWorld ( Momimhar posted on January 25th, 2016 )

We did so much fun stuff last year.  We went on a vacation in the summer and attended kids’ activity parties during the Holidays. It was indeed another wonderful year and my family and I were very grateful for everything.

We went back to San Antonio last summer with our darling daughter.  It was 6 years since we were there.  We stayed in La Quinta Inns & Suites-Riverwalk.  I don’t know but my daughter likes La Quinta.  Though it was a very busy vacation, we had so much fun because we went to Sea World San Antonio.  It was my darling daughter’s first experience at Sea World.  She got to see the Shamu Show, Clyde and Seymour High Show, and got on some rides including the thrilling Journey to Atlantis.  That was her favorite ride she said.  Gladly it was mostly cloudy the day we went to Sea World.  The weather was just perfect for lots of walking in the park.  Still, we brought our sunscreen, towels, and three bottled water for us to drink.

The day before Sea World fun, we strolled by the Riverwalk and had dinner at Guadalajara Grill.  My favorite meal there was the Molcajete.  Then after a fun day at Sea World, we just enjoyed sightseeing by the Riverwalk around lunch time.  We got on a boat that tours around.  Interesting history and facts while boating.  Then we explored the Market Square in the afternoon.  My darling daughter got the chance to ride the mechanical bull.  She had so much fun.  We saw a lot of colorful clothing, souvenir items, home decor, and entertainment (singing) in the square.  At check out day, we went up to the Tower of the Americas located at the HemisFair Park.  It was very interesting and amazing experience to go up to the tower and read some stuff about Texas history.  DD and dear husband looked through telescope a few times and walked around while I was reading stuff.

Three days and two nights in San Antonio, Texas were worth it.  Leaving San Antonio, we were headed to New Braunfels for some swim and splash at #Schlitterbahn.  It’ll be in my next post.  🙂

Summer Is Not Over Yet ( Momimhar posted on October 11th, 2015 )

Beautiful day to be out in the backyard playing in the pool.

Beautiful day to be out in the backyard playing in the pool.

Although October is here but it’s a hot weekend here in Texas.  Summer is not over yet for us here.  That’s good I guess because my darling daughter enjoys the outdoors so much.  One weekend she asked me if she can play in her pool in the backyard.  Of course, she had to bring all her bath toys out with her.  🙂 After I filled up the pink pool I bought from Walmart for $8.00 last year, I sprayed some sunscreen all over DD.  I used Banana Boat Baby Sunscreen Spray on her because it’s non-sticky and non-greasy.

And just look at that little girl.  She asked for her Scoobydoo umbrella after a while. Ah, toddlers.  😀
