Sled Riding is Fun

The day after Christmas, we visited  Dad and sled ride at the side of his yard while the snow was a little bi thick.

My daughter and I usually   quit first but the little one will stay outsidfe with his Dad till his  feet and hands gets numb and cheeks are pink  lol.
Below is a short video that hubby recorded.

Winter Blues

We don't have much snow compared to what we had last year but the temperature is the same. The part that I don't like is when it's windy because the wind feels like it is cutting through your skin. Outdoor fun is very limited during this time of the year. My husband and kids are always on the go but I really don't feel like going out all the time as I always catch a cold. Just like now, my nose is bleeding because of the bad cold that I got.

I'd rather stay at home and browse a surf shop directory.  At least, traveling online is fun plus you will discover  giveaways such as the Colorado trip giveaways.  I know I have mentioned that  I'd rather stay inside but when you are talking about adventure trip such as this, it  is worth it.

Robert Morris University Trip

We went to my husband's school   two days before Christmas.  Robert Morris is a huge university  known for its business courses.  The bookstore was our main destination but hubby gave us a tour.  
 He bought a book that is not available anywhere else but  in the school's store.  As much as possible, hubby does not like buying books in the school because it is way expensive than buying it online.  I think that's one way of school's strategy to get the student to buy books from them, to have it available only in their school hehe.
This is the picture of how the old RMU looked like.  It was hanging on the wall at the library.  Their library is huge! 
 It's nice to go there during vacation because few people are around so taking pictures is  not to conscious.
 I found it interesting that there are names engraved on the octagon ceiling.  Not sure if they are alumnus or the founders.  The three flags below are the flag of the school, the state of PA, and the  US flag.
 There is a new building being built on the other side of the school.  I think this will be the replacement of the building they sold to Doquesne University in downtown w Pittsburgh.  Hubby saw a big squirrel  so he took some pics but it was way too far.
 We proceeded to the Robinson Mall  when we left school.   That will be on my next post hehehe.

That was an interesting trip for us.  We learned a little bit about hubby's school.

 As I have mentioned on my previous  post, we attended our friend's daughter's baptism yesterday.   We woke up early because the baptism ceremony is at 10 am and I promised Manay that I would make a pan of lasagna. 
My men were in suits.  EJ  wore the  suit that her Ninang Agnes gave him as Christmas  gift last year.
 We stayed at Manay's house  for hours.  One of the Filipinas who came brought her  Videoke mic so we sing and sing till they get tired of hearing us hahaha.
 Sophie did not cry when Fr. Dean  poured that water in her forehead.
 Below were taken in front of the church when we were leaving.  Hubby snapped  some shots  with me and the kids.
 We  went home after the ceremony to get the food and change our  clothes.  Family picture first before  taking off our clothes.  It seldom that my men wear their suit so I  asked them that we should have a pic weee.
Thanks for commenting and for your visits everyone.  I owe you a lot already, I just don't have enough time to bloghop these days..

Fun with Gracie

These were the  other shots that I took when we  baby sit our dearest Gracie.  The kids really had  so much fun playing with chubby little cheeks.
Rylie did great and she kept telling me that she really want a  baby sister hehehe.
You ca see how eager she was in playing with  Gracie.
Thank you so much folks for visiting.. I have been absent in bloghopping for days.  The Cottrill's have a lot of activities even if it's school vacation.
We will be out again tomorrow for Sophie's baptism.

 These photos were taken a couple of months ago at Pet Supplies store in Steubenville Ohio.
 I love the pink fish at the bottom.  Aren't they pretty?
Don't be confused with my title.  In our language (tagalog) fish is isda so I combined the two  into fishda lol.. Thanks for dropping by folks.

Sled Ride Fun

 The kids and hubby went out  and sled riding the other day at ny FIL's  yard.  There was a little bit of snow accumulation that day so they took  advantage of it.  
Our daughter did not stay very long outside but our son  stayed until his cheeks were pink.  I can see  how my son would love to be in one of those snowboards during winter,.  He has a very strong tolerance to cold weather.
Here wishing everyone a lovely weekend.  We will be going to Pittsburgh today and probably see a family friend.  Thank you all for always coming by.  I know I woe you a visit since it's been days that I wasn't able to blog hop.
