Taking The Boys To Watch Dolittle (Short Video Clip)

We were glad the boys sat the whole time while watching Dolittle though my eight-year-old was a little wiggly for minutes. But, he finally settles down when he moved to another empty seat. I guess he wants to be on his own, lol, he is a little independent. And about the movie, we all enjoyed it! It’s a perfect family movie, especially for the little ones ♥♥♥.

Saturday Be Like With Kiddos At Tilt Studio

We were speechifying this morning whether we should go to the Boardwalk in Shreveport, eat at Joe’s Crab Shack, or have lunch and take the boys somewhere closer. Maybe, if the weather were a little warmer, it would have been a big yes going to Shreveport. But with this nasty and windy weather, kids don’t enjoy much (I know them very well, lol ). So, we decided to go to the mall and get some food first before heading to Tilt Studio. Of course, when they heard that we are taking them to Tilt Studio, they couldn’t wait for long, hahaha. We want them to have fun, plus they love this place (Tilt Studio) very much! Seeing them having fun and enjoying every moment of it is everything for us. We had a perfect Saturday!

A Little Gardening Afternoon + AZUL COCONUT WATER

Hi guys, how’s your weekend so far? I hope everybody is having a good weekend. About me, I was a little tied up all day. I went to the mall and bought some back to school clothes for my boys. After that, I drove back home, did a little cleaning and a little organizing in both of my boys’ rooms. Once I was done there, I did the laundry too (it’s laundry day), Friday laundry!

After Sean’s work, we went to Wal-Mart and got some landscaping bricks and bags of soil for my little garden. By the way, the bricks are on clearance for $1.00 each. I told Sean that this is the best time to buy bricks. Whenever we decide to move somewhere, we have bricks for gardening, Hahahahaha sounds funny? Well, I’m serious!

KALABO (Philippine Oregano)
Kangkong (Water Spinach)
Malunggay (I transferred them to a bigger pot).
Basil

After working in my garden for an hour and a half I was really thirsty. I’m introducing my newest favorite drink. Not just my favorite but also Sean’s. It’s the AZUL COCONUT WATER from Dollar Tree. This drink has chunks of coconut pieces in it (which I love the most!)

Back home in the Philippines, we always drink coconut juice anytime it was available or offered to us. I’m not sure if you’re aware of it or not but coconut juice has a lot of health benefits to it. If you’re not aware of all the good benefits that coconut juice can give to our body, then it’s time to do a little research.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF COCONUT WATER:

  • Reduce blood pressure.
  • Support heart health.
  • Prevent kidney stones (very true, I experienced having this problem at such a young age. Drinking coconut juice helped a lot).
  • Have antioxidant properties
  • Have benefits against diabetes.

Coconut water is a great way to rehydrate after working out or after gardening, as I did. There are many more health benefits of coconut water which you can read about here.

DIRECTIONS:

  • Chill and shake well for better flavor.

INGREDIENTS:

  • Yong Coconut Water
  • Water
  • Sugar
  • Coconut Meat
  • Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose
  • Malic Acid and Sodium Metabisulphite
So thirsty after working in my little garden at the backyard.

Restoration Park: Walking In Nature With My Family

It has been a while since our family went walking on trails at a park. So, the other day we went to Restoration Park, in West Monroe, to try out the trails there. We started out at 6:00 p.m and finished a little after 7:00 p.m. Restoration Park is located in 700 Downing Pines Rd, West Monroe, LA 71292. This park was a former strip mine converted into a wetland habitat. Gosh, it’s beautiful out there!

It felt so good sweating while walking on the trail. The humidity wasn’t bad at all by 6:00 p.m. Also, I was so proud of my boys. They were very well behaved from start to finish. And guess what? The one-hour walking helped them slept all night.

Usually, when you go walking you feel tired at night. But it wasn’t the case for me. I couldn’t even remember when was the last time I ever felt relaxed until that evening after walking.

There are numerous physical and mental health benefits of walking. I noticed that every time we go out for a walk it helps me relax all night. Not only that but also helps me think clearly. I’m not sure about you, or how do you feel after taking a walk, but it helps me feel healthier. Walking with my family is a very good idea. Aside from just having company with me it was also a time to bond and see the beauty of nature around us. How about you? Do you prefer to go for a walk alone? Or with family?

Swimming Day at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park

NORDSTROM.com

Hi everyone, how’s your weekend so far? I hope you are having a great week! Okay, so today we went to Poverty Point Reservoir for swimming. It’s a 45-minute drive from my town. Poverty Point Reservoir State Park is located in Delhi, Lousiana.

We got there just in time. There were only a few groups enjoying the sand and moderately warm water when we arrived. However, just 30 minutes after we arrived, an influx of people descended on the beach. All I can say is that this place is really a good choice to visit especially for swimming during the Summer since Northern Louisiana doesn’t really have sand beaches as you would expect to have if you were in Florida, Texas or any tropical island. Even with the sandy beach at Poverty Point, I was still imagining that we were on a “real” beach. Despite the lack of palm trees and warmer weather, we had a blast!

Fun Day at Louisiana Purchase Gardens and Zoo

Hello everyone! How was your weekend? I hope you and your family had a great and fun weekend together. About me and my family, we were a little busy. Sean and I are trying to keep up with the demands of the boys when it comes to going somewhere to have fun.

Since school is out for the Summer, my boys are constantly wanting to go somewhere. To be honest, it’s exhausting sometimes to go out in this heat. Nonetheless, taking them somewhere to have fun really helps me and Sean (especially me). Due to the fact that at home they constantly argue with each other, and they don’t agree with everything the other wants to do. Seriously, they’re like cat and dog fighting all the time. As a full time mom, they are my full time job. To those moms out there who have little boys, I’m so curious right now. Do your little boys fight or argue a lot?

Here’s our fun-filled day at the ZOO

We were the first in line to wait for the next train ride. The boys were like “mommy, where’s the train?” They couldn’t wait any longer for the next train ride to begin.

Having fun at the SPLASH PAD

After our train ride, we didn’t walk around the zoo much longer. The reason why? The boys were so ready to cool off and splash. When it comes to having fun in the water, they will not waist any time. IT’S SPLASH TIME!
