Wild West Town

Ryan and I have heard about Wild West Town from my mother-in-law. It is not very far from the train museum, so we all decided to swing by. It was a little pricey for each child, but good thing Branden was still free. Ryan was able to print a coupon for mama, so she was […]

Lolo’s 64th Birthday

My in-law’s birthdays are in our calendar, and Frankie  checks it all the time. He was looking forward to my father-in-law’s birthday last Saturday. We didn’t want to interfere on his birthday, but I called and asked if we could come on Friday night instead. Ryan and I met at Dad’s house because he had […]

Mama’s 63rd Birthday at Deep River Park

I promised myself that every time it is my mom’s birthday I will surprise her in any way I can. Last August was my mama’s 63rd birthday, and I just have the most perfect get together I have in mind for her. Unfortunately, one of my friends accidentally told her about it, and she asked […]

Unexpected Scholarship

School has started and I haven’t even finished uploading the summer pictures. This summer was the best summer I ever had. We went to so many places which I have yet to write about it. School is ok so far. It was rough the first day of school because I do not get out late […]

Summer Outing III – Illinois Railway Museum

Aside from the Lego bricks that Frankie likes putting together, he also enjoys playing with his train sets. On his first birthday, his late grandpa Neis from Georgia sent him his very own train set. We do not know how old it is because he said he had it for such a long time, but […]

Summer Outing II – Deep River Waterpark

Ryan, Frankie, and I went to Deep River Water park in Indiana after having our teeth cleaned last year. The 3 of us got in for free because someone we love deadly gave us the tickets. It was the first time we have been there and we did not realize how many activities they have […]

Summer Outing I – Chicago

I have to say summer of 2014 has been the best summer by far. My friends and I have been trying to spice our summer by taking the kids to different places. Last June 16, we decided to take the kids to the Shedd Aquarium because it was one of their free days. We took […]

Turning Point

If you have been checking my blog, you must have read about Ryan’s recent promotion. Of course, the family was so happy for him and we wished him well. Ryan started last week, and he decided it wasn’t meant to be and went back to his old position. He was looking for something technical and […]

Food for Work

Dada emailed me a couple of days ago if we have all the things we need for pancit and lumpia. Every time they have a potluck, Ryan always bring either of the two because those were his co-worker’s favorite dish. They are Filipino dish, but his co-workers have grown to love them. Mama, the kids, […]


Our family is overflowing with gratitude and thankfulness with recent blessings we have received both academically (Dada and Myself) and with our jobs. Our Dada has recently been promoted to Quality Technician. Sometimes when you wait for the right time, God gives it to you. He makes sure everything clicks. The pay increase it very nice […]
