Family Will Be Having An Outing Today

Yes, we will be having an outing today. We were invited by our friends in the pool and I am sure my kids will enjoy it so much especially Mj who missed swimming a lot. She wanted to go back but I didn’t allow her to, I mean it is already like number of times that we stopped and this time it will be a waste of time since she will be in college soon. I was thinking to enroll Faith though it just that I am too busy with work and stuffs, maybe in summer we will. Moving forward, my friend messaged me one day and asked if I wanted to come, I said yes it’s time for me and my kids to unwind with minimal cost because we were all be contributing and the venue is eye catchy, they said its one of a top rating resort in Samal this time I’ll make sure to capture every moment. So guys have to go now, I have to go to my other friend to get the pop cake I ordered. Have a nice day everyone!

Will Have A Getaway This Weekend

My kids are very excited this weekend obviously because we will spend a night out in the beach. I planned this getaway for a week now and my kids are looking forward for it especially my youngest daughter. She has been preparing her toys for the beach for a week as well. This outing is for my family, the whole family including their cousins and my sisters. I will have two nights off from work, I filed a vacation leave a month ago and finally I can smell the breeze coming from the sea water, it has been a while. And it has been I had a little bonding with my kids, I wanted to be just with them but my eldest daughter suggested to bring the whole family instead, in that way it will be more fun. Good luck to my expenses.

Dad Is Annoying Me

Our youngest daughter and my husband were talking on the phone. My youngest was telling her dad what she wanted for Christmas. My husband likes to tease her and told her she would get one green and on red sock if she was not good. Our daughter insisted that socks were not a Christmas gift, they were just something you bought at the mall and that she really wanted the two items she had requested (a Yippet and a Fijit). Well he said that socks were a Christmas gift and not only was she going to get one green and one red sock her sister was going to get one yellow and one black sock. Our youngest ran to me and said “Mom, dad is annoying me.”

DIY Cornhole Board Customization

Cornhole boards are a classic form of entertainment for family game night during the long summer evenings. Cornhole is simple, fun, and it can be manipulated into fun new games with new objectives. For those who have taken the time to build cornhole boards, or for those who bought boards that are unfinished, the customization process is a fun DIY project for the whole family.

Simple and Elegant
For a simplistic approach to finishing cornhole boards, one might decided to finish the boards in their stain of choice. This seals and protects the wood, making the boards appropriate for any and all events. Staining may require more than two coats, especially if the individual wants a darker or more vibrant appearance.

Lighting for Night Use
Since cornhole games may continue well into the dark hours, it is only natural to consider adding lights to the cornhole boards. Cornhole lights are applied around the edge of the target hole, allowing players to make accurate shots. Lights come in a variety of colors making it possible to match the color of the lights with the board’s theme.

Stickers and Decals
Stickers and decals are an easy to use option for board customization, especially if the owner believes he or she might not have the time or talent for hand decorating. Some of the more popular decals may depict sporting events or teams, designating the cornhole boards for game days. Other stickers could be used, such as metallic or glow in the dark stickers. Kids could even decorate the boards, making them a treasured family possession.

Painting a Masterpiece
For those who are artistic, the boards themselves could become a piece of artwork. Elaborate scenes, characters, or designs could be painted onto the boards. After the art has had time to dry, a clear coat should be applied to protect the paint. The top coat serves to protect the wood as well, reducing the risk of fading from sunlight or wood rot from moisture. Even with this coat, cornhole boards should be kept out of the elements.

Instead of spending a lot of money on finished, ready to buy cornhole boards, families should try the DIY route. It’s cheaper to build and customize them, and it’s a lot of fun! If appearances are not a concern, children could go crazy decorating them while parents take a much deserved break on the patio.
