Family and Friends Summer Cabin Experience ( Momimhar posted on August 15th, 2021 )

Several weeks ago, we went to a cabin summer getaway with some close friends of mine. It was my dear friend K who actually asked everyone in our friend circle if any of us wanted to join. The cabin location was in Hochatown, Oklahoma, where the popular Beaver’s Bend State Park is. This friends and family get-together plan has been long overdue because we couldn’t get an ideal schedule for some reason. Finally, it came true.

So my friend booked an 8-room cabin near the state park. The luxury cabin is called Lakeside Mansion, and it was huge! It’s a fully-furnished cabin with big patio, outdoor jacuzzi, and a fishing deck. It was a 4 days and 3 nights weekend accommodation for 8 families with young children and teenagers.

Because it was located near the state park, and it’s summer, we had a lot of fun. Water activities and swimming in the river kept the young ones busy. Us moms got busy with the cooking and chaperoning. The dads stood as guardians and took care of the expenses. Haha.

Also, it was a Father’s Day weekend, so we prepared a restaurant fine dining dinner for the dads at the cabin that Saturday night. We cooked:

  • Brisket
  • Chicken Fajitas
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Clam Chowder
  • Salad
  • Wine

Us moms had our own dinner table. We prepared a “Boodle Fight” style table. All the food was spread out in an arranged manner on banana leaves.

  • Pork BBQ
  • Grilled Fish
  • Grilled Squid
  • Grilled Shrimp
  • Roasted Chicken
  • Rice
  • Pansit
  • Bibingka
  • Suman
  • Fruit variety

S’mores night. Yum!

Summer Beach Vacation 2020 ( Momimhar posted on July 24th, 2020 )

It’s finally here! Our summer beach vacation has come. Woohoo! Darling daughter is super excited about this. She wanted to have a summer vacation at the beach so we are going to the Gulf Coasts tomorrow. It is going to a long drive. Dear husband says it’s about 10-12 hours drive to Alabama.

We didn’t have a great beach vacation in the Philippines two years ago because we went early in July and it was rainy the first week we got there, which was supposed to be our beach week (sigh).

So, we thought we’re going to the beach this year! Alabama beaches here we are coming! 🙂

Family Fun Concert By The Lake Series 2020 ( Momimhar posted on July 17th, 2020 )

Last night was super fun. We went to Rockwall to see a concert with friends. Concert by the Lake Series 2020 at the Harbor in Rockwall (TX) features talented bands from all over Texas touring and performing in special events like this. Blaze of Glory Band was the featured band last night. As a rock fan, I didn’t miss this performance tribute to Bon Jovi. This is a family-friendly event so everyone can enjoy.

Darling daughter was happy that we were able to go see the concert. Our Summer Break 2020 is quite busy despite of the COVID-19 pandemic. We make sure we have a lot of fun and staying safe and healthy at the same time.
