Thanks Tricia for sharing this video. It's very inspiring. BTW, are those his Physical therapists? I loved the way they video'd his gait pattern. AND they get to wear shorts at work! This is an awesome Video!

Our friends from Philippines were here vacationing and Karen made reservations at Home Restaurant at Silver Lake. Anyway, because they got invited by other friends and last minute changes, we ended up having a fun GNO!


the boys were brave enough to come with me to the
$1.00 flipflops at Old Navy


Even though it was overcast
in the morning this weekend
we still enjoyed the SUNSHINE
around 2pm


The boys enjoyed swimming at Tito John's
and at the beach


We stayed locally this Memorial Weekend
and it is
something we will get used to this Summer

American Idol


Like last time for the Dancing with the stars
I sent out mass text messages, called friends even emailed.
I got tickets for the A.I (American Idol) show in the semi-finals 2 weeks ago.
We got there at 3:30, stood in line, made it inside the CBS lot

Then they told us "You're going to hate me, but we can't let you all get in"
There were at least 50 of us waiting outside the studio to get in.
"If you stay for Idol Extra we will give you priority Tickets
for the FINALE"
Oh heck yeah, we were so tired but stoked that
we have priority tickets for the Finale.
Janice was so,so,kind to run and
buy dinner for Luisa,Kayla and I.
Thanks again Janice.

Randy Jackson

Justin Guarini and Danny Gokey

Jillian - Ace - Blake

Jiillian - Ace - Danny
Jillian and Danny

We left the studio at 9:30 pm, we were so tired.
We were so tired that we cannot even talk
about the Finale.

Oh yeah!
We made it inline after my M.D appointment.
Glad it was at Nokia Theater.

Kayla - Me - Luisa

We had great seats, we were seated in the Orchestra
next to
the "Media,Radio Station staff"
Before the show started
We walked down the aisles and talked to
Jeff Probst, Brad Garrett
Amanda Bynes
and many more celebs,singers
and past AI contestants.

Inside Nokia Theater
after they announced Kris as the new American Idol

With Kimberly Locke

Luisa and I

Big and Rich's (Big Kenny)
with Luisa

The Girls with Paris Bennett

Kayla and Jason Castro

During commercial breaks
they set up the stage and the crowd were
pumped up when we saw KISS and QUEEN's
drum set
I even hit the back of the head of the lady in front of
me twice. Sorry!
We danced,sang,screamed.
It was a fun 2 hour concert

The show ended at 7pm
went to CPK for a nice dinner.
It was a fun night Ladies, it was worth all the wait from the AI-Seminal
the traffic. Thank you for coming with me.

So you think you can dance! If..
I mean
IF, I get tickets for the show
I will be sending a txt msg and emails.
It was a fun AI season.

After Shock

We just put the boys to bed
I was on the computer,blogging/twitting
and Jake came to the family room and asked for a glass of milk.

It felt like a giant Cat jumped on our roof and
shook the house pretty good,
knocked down some of our picture frames
and glasses but nothing serious.
It felt more than a 5.0 Magnitude,
click here.
We're ok,
hope everyone's ok and did not get hurt.

I survived

Last friday was Father and Sons Camping Trip. It was a FIRST for me to stay home BY MYSELF, FIRST for Paul to take the boys camping and FIRST for the 3 of them to Camp in L.A! Yikes! BUT we all survived.

Luckily I had Shauna to chill out with. I
had dinner with her, Alyssa and her friend
went to Dinner at Pei Wei. Shauna said it was perfect for
a GNO.

I also Caught up with 24, I can't believe Tony is really a bad guy!

rest of the night, I enjoyed
L-O-V-E-D I-T!

We'll have to plan something big next yr girls to continue
celebrating Mother's Day

Like enjoying a nice spa, especially the Quiet Room

Or going to Americana at the Brand for some shopping


When the boys got home from Camping,
we went to the Armed Forces Parade

We sat with
Jon and Larayne,
Aaron and Allison, and all the kids.
We were all tuckered out, especially the boys.
Jake fell asleep halfway through the parade. He even slept when the flyover passed.

What a fun weekend!

Take me out to the Ball Game

It has been a long time since we last watched the Anaheim Los Angeles Angels.
We surprised the boys and on our way to the stadium
we played the song "Take me out to the ball game song"
And they guessed where we were going.

We got Free Hats
Glad they scored 2 HR
and they won!
It was 80's night. SOOOO FUN!!!
told DH that he should have
told me it was 80's NIGHT
he said Glad I didn't !

Gentlemen, start your engines

This Saturday DH and the boys went to Church and participated in the pinewood derby. The boys were so stoked when they found out that DH is going to make a car and since the boys love Mario Kart they decided to make "Waluigi's off roader".

The boys were even more stoked when This car made it to 3rd place.

Here are the Cars

And the Men who participated.
It was a fun luncheon get together.

Fiesta at our Hacienda

It was a fun Fiesta.

Paul's yummy Guac,
Trader Joe's Carne Asada and Carnitas and
Strawberry Daiquiris
We decorated the house with flags
and marakas and sombrero
which they used during pinata.
Feliz Cinco De Mayo!

Code Blue

Last night every single Filipino
watched the Pacman TKO Hitman
in Rd 2.

We watched it at my brother's house
with a bunch of their friends from work.
It's one of the things I never liked Boxing.
Because it is violent
and I always feel bad for the loser.
Oh well
it was a great fight.
Also the funny thing before the Pacquiao and Hatton fight
I was looking for some celebs.

I asked my DB and SIL
Was it worth paying HBO PPV for $49.00?
