Dad's Special Day

This is the second part of our Father's Day celebration. We spent some quality time with my husband at home in the morning and then we spent the rest of the day at Dad's!  We devoured some pork baby back ribs, egg noodles, green beans, and cream  of corn.
We always thank God that  HE continuously bless our Dad with good health.  The only thing that  bugs  Dad once in a  while is his shingles, my husband  would  put a local anesthetic called Xylocaine or lidocaine on his skin whenever he is in pain.  He is  turning 90 years old in  few more months and   we are so happy that we get to enjoy his company everyday.  Our children are still  young so I want  them  to have more  photos with their Pap.

Splish 'n Splash

Me and Bolt picked some raspberries at my SIL's backyard while the kids and hubby are splishin and splashin in the swimming pool.
Before they jumped in the pool, they played horse shoe first.

Having a swimming pools is very nice during summer time but I think that maintenance  cost is  expensive.  Both my sister in law Chris, and my brother in law Rick has one.

Father's Day!

This was Originally posted on June 15, 2008 - S. Korea

It's a great celebration to thank our Fathers for everything that they have done for us, CHEERS! I'm just a little sad that my father isn't around anymore, but thanks a lot Papa and I love YOU! We hope that you are happy with where you are now.
We celebrated the occasion by going to church first and then after the mass we proceeded to Turtle Cove and enjoyed the festive meal. We decided to go driving around and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Korea. Then we came back home, the kids surprised their Dad with their present - a TEA Maker. My husband loves iced tea so it's a perfect gift for him since we did not bring his tea maker when we came here. We spent the rest of the day playing outside. It was simple but quite a memory to treasure with.
Happy Father's day to all the Great Dads in the World!

Birthday Blast

My family pampered me on my birthday. They really did an awesome job to make my last year of being in the 30s a memorable one.  Our day started with  my husband and daughter  cooked for breakfast.  Then I made some food because my father-in-law was coming.  Thanks for the  plant gift Dad, I love it!  When we got done  eating lunch with Dad, my niece-in-law called and asked if we wanted to go with them at Tomlinson Run, so off we went.
We brought some food and my NIL brought some too.  We ate first before we enjoyed the paddle boats ride which was posted at Ms. Burrito's blog.  I definitely had a blast on my 39th birthday.  Now they say that life begins at 40, let us see.  For me life  has begun  when I became a wife and a mother, a meaningful life!
Thanks to all who greeted me  in my blogs and in Facebook.

Today is my special day. I'm turning 35, whoa I'm getting old... well not at heart, I always feel like I'm twenty... yeah right Well, I have to cook a good meal today. Hey...wait a minute....shouldn't I be off today, after all its my birthday? I guess Moms don't have days off, yup that's right, there are no breaks for us.. Our duties are 24/7. Oh well, I love being a mom and a wife. It makes me feel special whenever my daughter would tell me "I love you Mommy, I think that you are the best mom in the world". Always music to my ears!

A gift given by a korean friend.. Thanks Lina!  In 2009 (still in South Korea), I was invited   by a dentist who is working at University of British Columbia, Canada to enter my daughter's photo into a smile contest online sponsored by Division of Pediatric Dentistry.  Ms. Burrito won by having the most votes online.  Below is her certificate with her victorious smile.

Thanks for visiting!

A Fun Lawn Tractor Ride

We have been visiting my SIL, Chris after we visit my FIL. The kids love it there because she has a big backyard and there's so much things to do and see.
They also  love the fact that Gracie, my SIL's granddaughter is always there.  They love playing in the sandbox.  A special treat  is the fun ride from the  lawn tractor.  My SIL would take them  for a ride around her backyard.
Their swimming pool is ready  for summer's heat.
Having a riding  lawn mower is  necessary especially if you have a big yard like Chris.
"Take a picture of me" is what Gracie is telling me here  which I willingly love doing.
