There's a story how these shoes got to be on the sandy beach.  What's up with the stick?  Oh well, a little boy had to keep his stick together with his shoes.  Why did I post this shot which doesn't seem to mean anything else?  Seriously, I just love it.  Looking at the photo makes me feel nostalgic, it gives me the feeling that the shoes were just part of a bigger story, an experience which made memories.  For now I'll just let you ponder...

One thing that hubs didn't want us to miss is to see where he has grown.  To revisit the place where he spent much of his childhood.  What's this place called?  It's Alameda, an island city in San Francisco Bay. This island community has a small town with beautiful Victorian charm vibe, gives you that nostalgic feeling when you walk through and stroll around.  

I've been to this place twice and I wouldn't coming back for more.  Hubs would check out those spots where they used to play before and show it to our boy.  There's Crab Cove Museum but we haven't had the chance to visit that place.  Having our little boy, the beach is pretty much enough for us to spend most of our time.  Making sand castle with moat surely keeps us busy there.

Last time we went there our boy was so happy making footprints on the sand.  It's so nice to see him commune with nature that way, feeling his bare feet on the sand and getting dirty just like any normal kid.  We ran, dig some canals and chase sea gulls.... made some memories, that's what we did.


Can rain stop a little boy from enjoying a day out?  I guess not, at least for our boy.  You can judge from the photo that he's absolutely enjoying the rainy day.  Normally it would be a fight just to make him wear a jacket but when it comes to some splashing on puddles, he would be so eager to dress up and go.  

This is just one of those rainy days when we had to do some errands and go out in the rain.  It was just a light shower and the temperature was not freezing cold.  At first he was loving the walk without umbrella and I was the one holding it running after him.  It was just a pain to do that so luckily I wore my waterproof jacket and let him have the umbrella himself.  At first there was much complains and rejection but after having the hang of holding it, he was actually happily singing and hopping on puddles. 

I love having this kind of moment with my little boy, nothing fancy just plain old fun.  At least he'll grow up remembering he once played in the rain and wasn't just locked at home looking out the window.  We have to enjoy every moment, we can't stop the rain from falling, just like how I can't stop my boy from growing so fast....

It's not my birthday but this post has been way too long overdue.  I haven't really been blogging for the longest time due to work and mommy duties but for some reason I want to write about this special birthday present I received last year.  Indeed it's very special for me, my bestfriend sent this on my special day!  She's there in the Philippines and I'm here in US, still she managed to do something very special for me.  

I am not going into details anymore how she sent me this yummy red velvet with cream cheese frosting cake, all I want to express here is how I felt that time when I saw a huge box right infront my door.  I felt so loved and missed when I saw that present just when we came from our regular day out routine.  Hurriedly brought it in and opened with eagerness, not knowing who gave it.  Finally the surprised was unveiled, I got a cake full of love from my best-EST dear friend.  Of course it would have been nicer if it was her standing there waiting for me but that's too much to ask.  

Was it the cake or the present which made me feel so happy?  Well of course that made me happy but most importantly, the thought that came with it.  Across the miles my dear Che has pulled a big surprise for me.  I miss you bes...
