Our 3 day Conventions in Aurora

It was such a nice blessings that we are able to attend the Jehovah's Witnesses 3 day conventions at Aurora last month of August. We have great spiritual friends and the spiritual food we receive is truly a blessings. Can't wait for more!

Car Show in the Valley

Both my son and my husband really like old cars and last month they have car show going on here in the Valley. Its not really a big one but there are some couple cars that are really interesting. We just look for a while didn't really stay that long because it was really hot that time that's why we bring umbrella. We are looking forward for another one here in the valley this weekend, this is going to be a big one. They called it "Early Iron". That will be in Alamosa, Colorado. I bet it will going to be a good one. 

We brought Pearly home!

At last we brought pearly home with us! Its about almost 2 hours from Pueblo to where we live. She really enjoying the scenery! We take her out to her cage and she really feel at home right away. We're just holding her and she is such a good bird. Like an hour before we reach our town, she find a place to sleep for a while and that's on top of my sit. She is so adorable! We really love her, she is part of our family now.

My computer is back!

We feel so devastated because my husband computer lost the connection and it seems like we wont be able to connect the internet, it might be broken or it just stop itself after he try to download my son new computer games. I keep thinking about my old computer, I still didn't throw it away though but I am still hoping that it will turn on. So what I did, I try to plug in and I keep praying that it will turn on and then suddenly it turns on! That was a miracle! (laughs) I thought my old computer wont work anymore. It stop working for couple of months, and i thought the power cord is the problem because the power wont turn on anymore. Good thing I didn't throw this computer away and instead I keep it in my closet for couple of months now and there he is, he is back! Isn't that amazing? I feel relief, because of this we don't need to buy new computer for this month. We are going to use our savings for our convention this end of the month and hopefully next month, we will be able to save money again to buy a new computer for my husband. For me, this asus computer is the best computer I've ever had, I had this for almost 8 years now and so far, i am so happy with this computer. :-)

Beautiful flower from our garden

Isn't this a beautiful flower? We got all this from our garden! Its was my daughter choice of the flower and I help her arrange it and put it in her very cute blue flower vase that we got it for a dollar in a yard sale. We put it in the middle in our dining table and it was pretty nice. All our friends make a compliment to it. Thanks!

Ice cream time

Once in a while after service or whenever we feel like we need ice cream to cool us off, we always go to sugar shack in the valley and they have organic ice cream that everyone likes. My kids likes their superman ice cream and i like their chocolate, espresso and also their rocky road ice cream and mary one of my closest friend here in the valley like strawberry ice cream. She's like a mother to me and she have a good heart, she also treat me like her own daughter. That was such a nice day and I'm glad we get a chance to sit down in the park and enjoy our company together and have such a yummy ice cream in the afternoon.

Grill vegies for dinner!

Does it looks yummy? I am so excited to taste this delicious vegetable on a grill! Before, I really don't care about grilled veggies but now I started to like it. We always add vegetables everytime we grill chicken or hamburger and also we add portabelo mushroom to it and it was delicious and its a healthy option you know to add veggies on every meal. Love it!

Got a new pet for the kids!

My 6 year old daughter really love animals. She been wanted to have a bird and my husband and I promise to get her one once we get back from our vacation in Michigan. Last week, we are able to buy the bird cage and we already choose what kind of bird we will get for her. We will get her a cinnamon pearl cockatail. And since the bird needs to be weaned for another two weeks, we will wait until 17th to pick up the bird. Couple more days and we will be able to have her new pet, its another pet to add in our family. It will be so exciting to have a bird especially my little girl, she cant wait to have her new bird.

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 :-)
