Fun in the Sun

It was a P-E-R-F-E-C-T day at the Beach yesterday. After my morning run yesterday it was so humid. Around noon the weather got better, we had some breeze in our home and we hit the beach after lunch. It was 78-79 degrees and the water felt great. We had a blast!

The boys going to the beach and
they are not scared of the waves.

The waves were very big but that did not stop them
Again, we saw 2 dolphins
"Rapid Response"
Ocean Style
The waves got really bigger around 3-ish
all of a sudden we saw these lifeguards running
"ala Baywatch"
I called the boys to come out of the water
then we saw the lifeguard truck arrive.

Then the lifeguard boat showed up,
they were there for 5 mins.
Glad nobody was hurt.

Next yr. is our 10 yr anniversary. And I was wondering if this is how we will renew our vows.
What do you think?

I was called to be the Stake YW Secretary. There are a lot ( TONS) of activities we do for the "Youth", but especially for "Young Women" or YW or I love to call it Y-dub. In august we will have the YW Camp at one of the camp sites in Running Springs. And yesterday we ( the Camp director and the Stake President and the rest of the presidency) drove up there and tested the hike for the girls, we also looked at the cabins and the amenities where the girls will be playing, doing crafts, swimming etc. Last yr, this site was affected by the fire and you could totally see the trees. I was totally black and charred after the hike.

I am so proud to say that I survived my FIRST EVER hike in my life.
These women were so awesome, we are not as young as the
YW *wink,wink*
but we'll always be young at heart!
Now I need to go for a Nice SPA.

Mommy's Cafe

We have a set menu for breakfast during school year.
  • Mondays - Scrambled eggs and toast
  • Tuesdays - hashbrowns, yogurt and eggs
  • Wednesdays - pancakes and bacon
  • Thursdays - cereal and/or oatmeal ( their least favorite day)
  • Friday - Bagel, eggs, yogurt

On Sundays they will change the menu or
if I sleep in and did not wake up early than usual I always
use the Thursday Menu and change it to that day.

Since it's summer
we do not have a set menu.
They get to sit down and
let them ORDER from
Mommy's cafe.
my choices are of course whatever we have
and "if time permits"
kind of breakfast.

We love it!
It also helps them to learn how to order if they are at a Restaurant
and also helps them
to behave not only at home but at a restaurant.

On Friday, I asked them what they wanted:
Me : Good morning at Mommy's cafe, hope you had a great night, what would you like to
drink this morning Sir, we have Los Angeles Spring water, TJ ( Trader Joe's) O.J and
not so fresh Milk
J.T: Thank you Maam, I will have O.J please
Jake : And I will have Milk
Me: For breakfast we have toast
Boys: I dont think your cafe has any more Bread
Me: looks for bread...oopsss - Oh, I'm sorry sir, yes
we do not have bread any more, we have Sweet rolls
scrambled eggs, yogurt and cottage cheese
cereal and oatmeal,pancakes,fruit
Boys: We'll have yogurt, scrambled eggs and fruit.

It's so funny how they even remember what we
have or don't have. Sometimes they say
"I dont think there's enough Milk left for both of us"
Anyways, it's always fun to eat at Mommy's Cafe.
That's why when my Mom comes to visit
I always have my request and when we go home
to the Philippines
I also have a menu set for my Mom to cook =).

Happy Independence day!

What a fun 4th of July

We had our Annual bike Parade on our street

The kids decorated their bikes,
skateboards and scooters
they went up and down
the street and sidewalk.
Our boys had a great time!

After the parade the boys
chilled out and had ice pops,
and enjoyed slip and slide.

We had our good friends over Mark, Tara and
their girls with Michael, Dawn, Taylor and Bradley
for a BBQ.
I love this "silly faces" pic.
Loved Amy's expression.

Then we watched the fireworks at the park.
What a fun 4th of July weekend
with family, friends, food and fireworks.
Hope you all had a fun 4th as well.
