The old train station in Detroit Michigan




We went for a road trip going to Mexican town in Detroit then we saw this old abandon building. They said it was an old train station and they just leave the building the way it is. It was a nice building though, I like the artwork in the front building, they seems very old not sure how long this building been there, but it was interesting. So I thought I might share in here, we saw a nice mexican grocery store close to this building and we found a fresh mango so we thought we stop by and buy something for everybody.

Look who's visiting the neighbor?


This deer is been around in this neighbor for quite awhile now, this is the second time I saw them in the same house in different days. I guess they like the area so I took a picture of it and they seems doesn't care when people stopping by and taking picture of them. This was taken in Alamosa while were driving around town :-)

at Downtown Detroit





These photos are taken at downtown Detroit, it was such a busy street, were having hard time getting out in the area because of traffic. Lots of road work going on and we saw a live band out there too. It seems like they are working for the train tracks and additional road I guess. It was a nice drive though. There's a football game going on at the area and that add a lot of traffic. But we came out okay and we end up driving to a place where my husband grow up with. It was an abandon area in the City of Detroit and I forgot to take a picture of it. But anyway that was nice, something to see in Detroit downtown and thanks to my brother in law to show us around downtown. 

At Sinclair Michigan Marina




Aren't this photo are beautiful? I took this photo when we took for a ride at the Sinclair Marina in Michigan when we visited my mother in law. The first photo, its very interesting because the goose is nesting. My brother in law told us, the goose been there for couple days now and never leave her nest. So that was nice, my daughter really love to see the goose, we didn't came too close though, we just stay in the car. We just took for a ride and see the beautiful view of Sinclair river and see the marina :-) it was such a nice ride.

At Forest Cafe, Michigan




Here's our family pics after we had lunch at the Forest Cafe its located at the Great Lakes Crossing Outlets, Michigan infront of the Sea Life Aquarium. We really enjoy our visit and we are happy to visit my mother in law. I know she's sick and we are hoping that she get better and that she will be able to endure and fight her illness. We love her and its nice to spend time with her. Hope to see  her again next time in our next visit! 

We cross Canada border from Michigan!




We been really wanting to cross Canada from Michigan and we ride a Ferry to do it. We make it though, we did a whole day trip then we stop by at one of the park in the Canada border to take photos, most of it that I took are videos, I need to download those videos on youtube sometime if I get a chance. My daughter are busy chasing the birds that time that's why she's not in the photo. Anyhow, that was a nice trip, we make sure we bring our passport that way we can get it to the Canada border and we go back to the blue water bridge and back to Michigan after. Its a nice day trip for our family. Next time hopefully we can go and see the Niagra Falls in Canada, I am looking forward to do that next time :-)

at Stoney Creek Park, Michigan




Everytime we go to Michigan, we don't want to miss to visit the Stoney Creek Park. Last time we get a chance to swim at the beach area of stoney creek. Then of course the things that kids love the most is to play at their playground. My kids love to climb around and explore. We didn't go for a swimming that time, we just go their to play and enjoy the scenery. It was a nice day and we had mom with us. Its a good exercise for her and we had her walker so it was nice. 


The photo above is also taken at Stoney Creek but in the other side of it. Mom was waiting in the car so we got a chance to show the kids the lake and were also looking for fishes and just enjoy the moment as a family. It was not so crowded that time, only couple people was there but the other side of the lake it was really crowded especially where the big playground is. So it was nice visit at Stoney Creek :-)

Went to the Pantry Restaurant for Breakfast



The pantry restaurant is well known to their delicious german pancakes and my husband love to have breakfast there. Every time we visit Michigan, we don't want to miss The Pantry. This is our second time that we went there and of course my husband got an Apple Pancake and my brother in law got the huge German Pancake. I saw how big those pancakes are and I don't think I will be able to eat them all. Its too much sugary for me but of course I got a chance to try it and have couple bites of it and I can say, they are all delicious! I order my favorite ham and cheese omelette and the kids got their favorite order, chicken tenders for my little girl and hamburger for my son. 

Went to sea life aquarium, michigan



Its nice to visit here at Sea Life Aquarium in Michigan.  Kids really love sea life, their aquarium is really nice. Its worth to get in. We spend about more than $80 to get in for 4 of us, two adults and two children. Not including the toys we bought at their gift shop and also our family pictures. Its worth to visit and after that we had dinner at the forest cafe just in front of the sea life entrance and of course walk around the mall after dinner :-)


Its nice to be back...

Thanks to our friends who are able to watch our house while were gone for more than 2 weeks. It was nice to be back. We went to visit my mother in law at Michigan for about 16 days. Now we're back and its a good feeling to be back home. Kids really miss our guinea pigs, fishes and dogs and as well as their friends here in the Valley. Good thing we have a friend that has kids that are able to watch our guinea pigs while were away. That was nice of them to do that. So its nice to be back and see our pets. Our guinea pigs really grown a lot and I was very surprised because all our trees are really look nice and green. I look up in our backyard and we saw tons of weeds. So what we did is we pick up the weeds after the next day and do a yard work. Good thing we don't need to worry about mowing the lawn because one of our friends son come by and do it himself. :-) Now its time to get busy and do some cleaning at the house.

Trip to Michigan!

We been planning to go visit my mother in law at Michigan this past couple weeks because she is having a health problems. Its been 4 years since our last visit in Michigan. Couple months ago, I saw my mother in law and my brother in law visiting us here in the Valley. Mom looks fine and healthy but then after that we heard a bad news. They found out that she has a cancer. She undergo radiation and chemo treatment and hopefully she will  be able to endure and get back to her health again. It was nice visiting her for more than 2 weeks. Were happy that we are able to help her and see her that time. Wish we could stay longer but we have to get back home because the people who are watching our house and dog will attend a very important event the convention and her grand daughter will going to be baptized by then. We need to be back before then, its a long ride but it was nice. Kids are attached to moms dog named Joey. They cried when we left, so hopefully we can get back again and see some other places at Michigan and of course to see mom healthy on our next visit.

Met Apollo and Glo-berry, kids new pet



Here's our kids new pets (Guinea Pigs) we just bought it 2 days ago and the kids really had great time spending time with their pets, they are both males, my kids named them Apollo and Glo-Berry. They are putting them in their lap while watching TV trying to make them feel comfortable and feel loved. I'm glad they are enjoying their new pet, it takes a lot of care to care a new pet since we have 3 dogs already but just a small creature like them is just right :-)

crystal at crystal hill mine, Lagarita



These are some of the stuff we found at crystal hill mine, some of them are just broken pieces, the big rock that looks like starting to form a geodes, my husband said it was like a thunder egg or something, not sure what it is but we found that at the twin mountains. It was a nice rock hounding day, at least we found something and the kids just love picking interesting rocks.We have some couple crystals that we found at the crystal hill mine and hopefully next time we can find a good one that are valuable. Either its valuable or not, it was a good thing to do it as a family. 

Family Rock Hounding




Mostly on weekends, me and my family trying to do something fun together as a family. Sometimes we go for a road trip across the mountain, go rock hounding, or finding rocks for my rock paintings, go visit different towns to eat, go fishing on summer and hiking. At the photo above, we went for a rock hounding, its closer to where we live, its at the Crystal Mine, Lagarita, we really didn't dig a lot, we just looking on the sides or in the dump, we just do it for fun, the kids love it and just being there was really nice. We found couple pieces of broken crystals and some nice rocks. Next time we will try the twin mountains and try to look for an agate and geodes. Will see :-)

Computer not working

I had this ASUS computer for 7 years and now its giving up! I was using it in the morning then in the afternoon it hanged, when I shut it down and restart it again, it won't restart. The on button is not lighting up and I feel devastated. I am not ready to buy a new computer yet and I had tons of photos I saved in that computer. We have two computers at home, one for my husband and one for me but since mine is not working, I just wait until my husband got home from work that way I can use his computer for a little while. Our desktop computer is not set up it just need a new CPU. Well, i guess I need to wait for couple months when we had extra money to buy new computer but for now, we can't because we don't want to use credit card, we need to save money for it since we are trying to catch up our bills this month. That's why I am behind updating my blog. So please bare with me, I will keep update my blog as soon as I can whenever I get a chance to hold on my husband's computer :-)

Handmade Card for Him...


Every year in our Anniversary, I just usually made a anniversary card for him. I think the handmade one is better than the one you buy at the store. I also made an envelope along with it. Last year my husband bought me a Victoria Secret lingeries and bathrobe (that was nice and sweet of him) and I bought him a customized cellphone cover with our family photos in it together with a customized pen with our photo together. Last 2 years ago in our Anniversary we decided to buy an ATV as a gift for both of us together. This year, I bought us a couple shirts and I got chocolates from him too :-) We will spend more time this month for our Anniversary, have dinner together and do something as a couple. So thankful and lucky to have such a wonderful man to spend my life with. Happy Anniversary Bebeeh!

Anniversary Gift for him!



I been searching an Anniversary Gifts for him online and its way too much selection, its hard to decide but I made up my mind and buy this couple shirt at Amazon.com for our 9th year anniversary gift for my husband and for me as well. I don't have that much money to spend because I don't have a job, I am a stay at home mom but I also make an extra money by doing surveys, my swagbucks, inboxdollars, dollarsurveys and mysurveys.com so I get a chance to buy him a gift! Not that much but being able to remember our anniversary really that counts and being to each other and remember the time when we first got married is really important. We really treasure that moment and wish to have more years to come! Still waiting for our package, it will come late but its okay :-) Can't wait to wear it together and take a picture of us together wearing this couple shirt. That will be soooooo sweeeeeeeet! 

Happy 9th Year Anniversary!

I still remember the first time I met my husband and the time when I say "I DO" in our wedding on December 19, 2005. I can't believe we're already in our 9 years! Days went by so fast as well as our kids grown so fast. I really had a good relationship with my husband. We try to keep up to each other, even though sometimes communication is the problem and it sometimes cause of an arguments but we try our best to get along well and try to understand each other. A lot of patience, love and understanding is the key of a long lasting relationship. Also put God in the middle of our relationship helps a lot. We show to our kids how important spiritual is in the relationship of the family. He take the lead and I really respect him on that matter. We always spend time as a family, eat together at dinner time and try to give our time and attention to our two beautiful kids. I am very fortunate to have such a wonderful family, beautiful kids and a responsible husband that I can proud of. Many more years to come and Happy 9th Year Anniversary to my one and only loving husband! Love You Bunch!
