Life Begins at....

On the day I turned 40, we woke up so early to  catch our flight  going to Texas.    I am just glad that my kids are a real trooper, they  were ready when we woke them up at  3 o'clock in the morning.
@Pittsburgh Airport waiting for our flight to Chicago
It was raining when we land  to Chicago
Our connecting flight from Pittsburgh to Chicago took 1 and 1/2 hours.  I regret  that I did not let my kids wear jackets as it was so cold on the plane.  I was  literally shaking.  Our flight from Chicago to San Antonio was a bit longer, 2 hours and 35 minutes.  We were greeted at the airport by the Dias  Family.
Love the  bouquet they gave me and the welcome sign is  just too sweet!

The Dias Family were so  thoughtful and sweet to  threw a party for me.  We had dinner at their home.

A Huge  Thanks to the Dias Family  for  making our stay in Texas extra   memorable.  I could not  ask for more  for a better birthday celebration.  So is it true that life begins at 40?  For me, my life begins when I  married my husband and have kids of my own!  Life then and now is just  wonderful!

Father's Day 2013

At our home, everyday is a Father's day because my husband make sure to spend time with our kids everyday.  Even if he is very tired from work, he still plays with them when he comes home that is why our Burritos are very close to him.
We had a simple celebration of Father's Day this year.  We woke up early and went to my  father-in-law's house.  Me and my daughter cooked breakfast and we ate  breakfast with  him.  We seldom  do that so  that made  Dad really happy.  He told me the other day that we should go over to his house again and cook for him.
After we spent some time with Dad, we went to the Kennel and got our dogs.  When we came home, I cooked dinner for us instead of going out to a restaurant to avoid  the crowd.

The kids also made a  personalized card for their Dad and I added  some touch to the card that I bought for him.  I put some petals of the roses that I received from a friend during my birthday onto his card and he loves it.  I also replaced the photo on the card and  put   a photo of him and the kids.

We completed our celebration with a family bike ride.

How about you, how was your Father's Day celebration?

Blog Break

I am on blog break but  scheduled this post so my blog won't  be lonely while I am away hehehe.
Details of our getaway  will be  shared  when we come back in a week.  Thank you so much for  dropping by and leaving some thoughts.

I took a  whole week of break from my blogs and when I came back, it was hard for me to start again lol.  I got used to not using the PC but I have to admit, I miss  it.  I have piles of products to review but it seems that the time is slipping  away from my hands everyday and I can't accomplish the things I want to.  It's hard to find time now that my kids are off from school, they constantly wants to do  things so we are always busy.

Boat Coffee Table

My husband love this boat coffee table at the Turtle Cove resto. Every time we would go there to eat, he would always say something about it. He is planning to buy one of this before we go back to mainland, he want to put this in our family room where the theme of the design is Asian with sailor concept on it. Doesn't it look cute?

Ferris Wheel

 Ferris wheel is something that I will never  try to ride.  I remember having the courage to ride the caterpillar and it was the most embarrassing moment of my life as I puked my guts out after the  ride, ewww..  

This is a scheduled post.

A place to sit and relax

When it comes to outdoor activities, my husband and I preferred places with nature scenery and water. The presence of natural surroundings makes us relax and enjoy the moment.   Oceanside is  the kind of place where you can sit and relax, enjoy the breeze and forget any worries. We also love mountain climbing and hiking, a good exercise and relaxation at the same time. How about you? (originally posted on  1/7/09)

Family Adventures in the Woods

Since my  kids are off from school already, I have been very busy entertaining  them.  We went to the nearby woods  the other day. with our dog, Bolt.  We brought some drinks and  the kids brought their "paraphernalia" to investigate the woods.  My daughter brought her diary and wrote  what she sees and experience out there.
We saw a snake's skin along the way and  ten steps from the skin  is seems to be snake's hole on the  ground.  I have phobia with snake but I did not show my kids that I was scared, we just move along and I prayed that we won't  encounter the real  thing lol.

When my husband arrived from work, the kids were telling him  about our little adventure.  They asked their Dad to go for a walk and we showed him the  skin of the snake.

We stopped by in front of the church and took a family photo after our walk.
