Last Hurrah of the Summer

A close friend invited us over to their house to swim.  I told my husband that we would surprise the kids  and that we should not  tell them about it.  I [packed their swimming  stuff and towels and put it in the car before they come home from school,  So when they got home, we told them that their piano  lesson was moved at an earlier time so we have to leave  real soon.  They changed their uniform and grabbed their books and off we went.  They were not paying attention when  we were driving  so they did not realize where we are going until we made that turn and they finally saw where were at.  They asked why we were there, we told them that I have to drop off something.  We bought a cake  at Gus's Goodies.  When we parked, the kids asked if they can go down the car nd say hi to the kids.  We said yes.
 When we  got to their  baclyard, the other kids were in their swimsuit and our kids was like wondering.  So we spilled the beans and told them to change their  clothes and  swim.  They were so shocked lol.  We got them really good.  My son kept telling me "Mom,, you lied to us!"  I told him that it was a good lie hahaha.
 They really had a great time out there.
 These two are BFFs, they are like two peas in a pod. I love watching them   have fun.
I hope that when they grow up that they will still be friends.  So this was their last hurrah of the summer this year.  Although, EJ got sick the next morning, at least they have enjoyed to the fullest.

Making A Shaving Kit

If you're a man who wants to grow a beard, there are a few essentials that you might need in order to maintain the look and keep the beard from looking ragged. There are also items aside from beard grooming products that would make shaving in general a little easier.
The first thing that you need to get for the kit is a razor. There are razors with two blades and three blades. Some of them have a single blade, but they don't offer the protection for the skin that a multi-blade razor would offer. After you find the right razor for the beard or mustache that you want to shave, you need to get a cream to apply to the face so that it's easier to remove as much hair as possible. A cream will make the hair on the face soft. When the hair is wet, it will be easier to take the razor through the hair, getting to the skin on the face instead of trying to shave hair that might be coarse. You can use only water to shave with, but you won't get the softness that a cream would offer. An after shave can be applied to the skin after the hair is gone to help prevent a rash from developing and to keep the skin soft.

A shaving brush is something else to consider adding to your kit. It can be used to apply cream to the face or to wipe off excess hair after you have shaved. If you have sensitive skin, then it might be best to use a product that will prepare the skin for the razor. If you don't want to shave the entire beard, you will need the tools to keep it trimmed. An electric trimmer is ideal for those who don't want to spend a lot of time cutting hair. However, if you want a precise look, then a beard comb and a small pair of scissors are something to consider adding to your kit. A small bag can be used to keep the items in so that you don't lose them.

Graduation Party - Our Friend's Daughter Jen

On the last week of July, we were invited to clebrate a graduation of a friend's daughter.  She graduated with  flying colors and it was an ooportunity to inspire the kids.  They are  a Filipino-American family just like us so it was nice meeting new Filipinos from   other places.
 I love the idea of putting up photos since  babyhood.  You can see the progression and growth that an individual has.
 I am so glad that the kids had a blast.  Our daughter usually cling to us but our son is never shy in talking or playing with other kids.
 He can  talk just about to everybody.
 After we  talked to   peeops inside the  venue, we went outside and just had fun with family.
 My husband was making  me laugh whuuke he was taking the photos and I couldn't stop myself from laughing.
 Our son makes funnyposes when photo is being taken so that adds another  leverl of fun for us.
 He even encourage  them to do the same, lol.  Times like this makes me  so happy of my choices in life.  It gives me great satisfaction that we are  raising our children  in the right direction.  I hope that God will continue to bless and guide us to be good parents to our children.

It was a fun  experoence for us. Congratulations Jen and good luck on your college life ahead.  We share the proud feeling that your parents have and  thank you for inspiring our kids to do good in school.  

Four Tips That Could Help You Select a Worktop Refrigerator Intelligently

Here are four useful tips that could help you select a worktop refrigerator for your restaurant's kitchen intelligently.

Compare Your Worktop Options

Compare Dimensions

An easy way to compare a worktop refrigerator's dimensions is to compare the following measurements:

The refrigerator's length and width.

You should be able to find information about these dimensions because most refrigerator manufacturers list these dimensions in their product descriptions.

Compare the Number of Storage Drawers
Most high-quality worktop refrigerators have up to six storage drawers that can be used to store cutlery, cutting boards, flatware and other kitchen items. Most of these storage drawers have large holding capacities that can make storing your restaurant's most important kitchen items simple.

Dental Services

Both of our children has a very brittle set of teeth.  We constantly go to the dentist for filling.  We are wondering why the filling doesn't last very long.  We are thinking of switching dentist but we  are having a hard time doing that since we personally like the  dentist.  They are very nice and  makes us very comfortable during every visit.  
However, we are not very satisfied with the quality of dental work that they do.  The one that we used to go to before going to this one were  really good of what they do but the problem is their social skills.  It makes me so uncomfortable just by sitting in their office let alone in the  dental room.  The dentist is not friendly at all, they lack  personal and social skills.
 So we are torn.  Do you go to the one that you like because they are nice  even though they are not that good of what they do or do you go to the one who  are  so good of what they do but  lack social skills? I don't know, I was supposed to  reschedule my kids  appointment when they cancelled our appointment but I haven't done it since I am trying to decide whether or not we  need to switch.
  Photos were taken in May when they both lost tooth.

Update:  We switched provider after our last visit, details below:

May 28:  The kids had an appointment but was cancelled by the dental office  three days before the actual appointment.  They said that the dentist is not feeling well.  My husband have already put in  a  day of absence/leave  at work for this  but  we did not mind  and we understand because it was  inevitable.  I was advised to reschedule  the said appointment. I rescheduled the appointment to August 31st.

August 25:  I got a call from the dentist office and  was asked if  we would like to come in  because they had a cancellation.  I told them no because we had other things to do that day.

August 31:  We got the kids out  from school earlier just to be able to do their dental appointments.  Upon signing in, we were told that   the  cleaning was  scheduled  a month earlier than  it needs to be.  So they wanted us to reschedule it at a later date in September.  My husband asked me if I want to re-schedule, I can tell that he was fuming  mad already.  I told them no.  I said "It would have been nice if we were informed  the week before so we didn't have to pull the kids out of the school".  They missed some tests on that day because  of the appointment so I was  pissed.  They tried to explain to us but I said I don't want to make anymore  appointments and we left.

On our way home, we dropped by at  another dental office which is closer to our home.  We asked if they are accepting new patients and they took us in.  So yeah, we have new dentists now.
