movies at the park

I made my annual summer bucket list last week, and we crossed off one of the item I’ve always wanted to do as a family, which was to watch movies at the park. Our little man is now old enough and (has the attention span) to watch a full length movie. We figured this summer […]

4th of July weekend

We had a wonderful 3-day holiday weekend. Here are 10 things I want to remember during our 4th of July weekend. #1 – Hubby and I both had Friday off for the holiday. Since we just got back from our vacation last Monday, we only had to work 3 days during the week. Woohoo! #2 […]

10 books on my reading list for summer 2015

(this picture has nothing to do with my list, except I wanted to take a picture of the current popular books while at Costco) Currently I am in the season of life where I am loving reading more than anything else. I want to read  more than I want to watch TV and I look […]

{this week} highlights & pictures

“Never lose sight of the fact that just being is fun” Katharine Hepburn   This week: – I went on a hike with friends on Sunday morning and reached 26K steps on my fitbit by end of day. – We spent half a day at Disneyland and met-up with friends so we can be introduced […]

weekend bbq, pool and movies

We had a wonderful weekend. It was finally warm enough to dip in our pool so we invited our family over to swim, eat early dinner and watch movies. I feel like this is what summer weekends are made of. The hubby had a good fishing trip and caught several large fish, so we had […]

life lately: summer (1)

  Visiting my mom/sister’s house this past weekend, and H enjoying playing with my nephew’s train collection. He is really into trains right now and can play in this area for awhile, which gives me a chance to catch up with my family   After my niece and my other sister arrived, we headed out […]

hey august, where did you go?

August wrapped up most of our summer activities. We did one last hurrah of back-to-back pool party during this past Labor Day weekend, but after that, we are getting ready to say goodbye to summer. I must say, I forgot how hot it can be during the summer days in our new neighborhood. This is […]

this is what summer looks like (1)

 “because when you stop and look around, this life is pretty amazing”. (journaling card for project life from Studio Calico) We are making great memories this summer. We are definitely feeling the heat and try to find ways to stay cool, like visiting the library during story time, grilling indoors if dad’s not home and […]

pool is open for the summer

I really want to be consistent with writing on the blog, my way of documenting our summer. Before I would get myself overwhelmed with trying to post all the stuff we were doing because I didn’t have the time to sit down and draft a long post, I still don’t have the time most days, […]

goodbye summer

Summer. is. over. (not the weather, but the activities) We had our families over for a pool and barbeque party. My niece Jazzy is a water baby. She has been known to stay in the pool until 8pm.  This little lady loves swimming. The weather was blazing hot, so either you had to be in […]
