South Carolina

I went to Myrtle Beach with my family and had so much fun!  I love spending time with my family.  I was able to see my uncles and aunts and my beautiful cousin Jasmine.  Her name is the same as the princess in Aladdin. 



We celebrated my Nana’s birthday too!  My Nana loves going in the ocean as much as I do!




I found lots of seashells in the sand.  My Tia Ashley and Chelsea helped me build a sandcastle! 



We went to a place called “House of Blues”.  They had some really cool art on the walls!  They even had shoes on the wall!! 
             

 Going to the beach wasn’t even on my list of things to do this summer but I’m sure glad we went! 




I can’t wait to go back again!  

What’s your favorite beach to visit?

DIY Summer Fun

Summer Fun Flip Flops



Hey Guys!
I love the summer time!  It might be my favorite time of year.  Well, no, Christmas is my favorite time of year!  I still love summer!  I have been busying making all types of crafts.  Making this DIY Flip Flop was the best.  I even had enough stuff leftover to share with my friend Zharia!  She made a pair for herself! 
They turned out great!

They were really easy to make!  I want to use some stickers next time I make them.  I’ll save it for next summer. 

 I hope you get a chance to turn your boring flip flops into something special!

Summer Fun Popsicles!!

Beat the Heat!! 
Hey Guys!
I have been staying cool by doing many different things!  My favorite is swimming in the pool or going to the waterpark!  We found another way to stay cool this summer!  We made POPSICLES!!!  I love cooking and these were so easy to make.  My GiGi bought the popsicle molds last year from Michaels.  This was the first time we decided to use them and boy am I glad!

You should try making them!  Let me know how they turn out!!

Independence Day

H A P P Y  

4TH OF JULY!
I hope you have a great time with your family during this weekend.  Will you go and see some fireworks or will you have fireworks in your backyard?  Hey guys, remember to stay safe during the fireworks!  I made some sweet treats for the holidays.  Check out my DIY Fourth ofJuly treats.  You should try making them and let me know how they taste.  I thought they were delicious! 
Don't mind me, I'm just taste testing
                                                                         
People celebrate the Fourth of July because July 4, 1776, is the day that represents the Declaration of Independence and the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation.  Even though we think of freedom on this day, many people were not free.  I learned about Juneteeth (June 19, 1865)  last month.  Here are some great books to learn more about it!

 

Look for these titles to help you learn more about Juneteeth like I did!  


Enjoy!
