Family Summer Beach Vacation ( Momimhar posted on July 29th, 2020 )

We had a lot of fun on our summer beach vacation this year. Darling daughter has been wanting to go to the beach so she got her wish. We went to Gulf Shores, Alabama. It’s our first time to be at the Alabama Beaches. It was a very long drive but we made to and back safe and sound.

We stopped in Slidell, Louisiana for a night because we wanted to visit dear husband’s high school. It was a good feeling to know where your significant schooled. He said a lot has changed in 38 years. We had dinner at Fatty’s Seafood Restaurant in Slidell. Their seafood platter and gumbo was really good that we were stuffed we almost couldn’t walk to the car. Haha!

K’s excited was to the roof. She had a lot of questions about the hotels, restaurants, and of course, the beach. Six days and five nights in Gulf Shores are enough for the three of us.

An hour after we checked in at the Comfort Inn in Gulf Shores, we headed towards the beach immediately. We got there before the Gulf storms so the waves are quite swelling those days. But we had a great time playing in the sand and riding the waves. There was only one day when it rained so hard and gusty winds blew the sands all over the place. The next two days were amazingly sunny. Wave boarding was a lot of fun. There were many people on the beach but we maintained distanced from one another. Everything was fine.

Check For This Safety Feature When Buying A Car ( Momimhar posted on September 26th, 2017 )

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

As a car owner, one of the most important to me is the safety of my vehicle every time my family and I travel. It is not just something to compromise.  Car safety is a MUST.  I take it seriously.  Besides, my life here in the USA is not complete without a car.  It is one of the necessities to get around.  And car shopping requires patience and a little know-how.  Recommendations from family or friends should be taken into consideration because they can help with the decision-making in the long run.

Most people just look at car brands when buying one.  They don’t take the time to look at the features and mileage capacity.  All they think of is how they will look when they are driving an expensive car.  I am not about that. I am about economic and safety features. So what car safety feature should we check for when buying a car?

When my husband bought my car, he sought recommendations from immediate families and he checked ratings and reviews on the Internet.  He compared features and prices as well.  One of the main concerns when buying a car is the Latch System in the back passenger seats. The Latch System consists usually consists of two sets of lower Latch anchors and three top tether anchors which you will find between the back and bottom seat cushions in the back passenger seats. If you don’t know about it, you may check it out in your car now.  It is in compliance with the federal government law requiring cars manufactured after Sept. 1, 2002 to have a Latch System.

Under the seat cushions metal latches. Your car’s back seats should have four of these.

With this Latch System, you child’s car seats or booster seats will be completely secured.  I recommend to go to your nearest Fire or Police Department for proper car seat installation.  This way, you are confident.  And to prolong the life of your car and your precious passengers, drive safely.
