When we attended the Doodle4Google event with our daughter, Google booked our hotel accommodation in Sheraton Hotel in Palo Alto California.

We met some good people when we got invited to a Filipino gathering at Lake Arthur Regatta - Moraine State Park in Pennsylvania last August of this year. We seldom attend this kind of event but since we want our kids to be around the Filipino community once in a while, we decided to go.
I don't think there would be a Filipino gathering with no picture. It is just part of being Asian I guess. We even take pictures during funerals.
We also got to see Chelsea again the Pomeranian dog that we used to have and we gave her up for adoption to another family.
The kids were so happy to see Chelsea again. It was a great time for me and my husband as well. We got to explore the other part of the park which was very nice. Definitely a place that worth visiting.

Below are some photos that I have when my daughter was still taking ballet lessons to a dance place here in our area. She didn't like it too much so after several months, she decided that dancing wasn't for her. Her journey doesn't end there though. Her interest in music was shifted into playing an instrument which is really good because she loves it. Hubby and I supported her decision not to continue with the dance lessons because I couldn't be a good dance Mom anyway. I am not into make up and other cosmetics so I wouldn't really know how to dress up daughter during rehearsals.
I think her motivation was affected by the fact that she didn't like how they were being trained during the lessons. I think that if you want your kids to be good at ballet, they should take ballet lessons at this dance studio where teachers are professional and really knows what is best for your kids.

Let's face it, traveling with kids is not always pretty especially if you are taking a long 7-8 hours of r driving. My family love traveling, it's one of the many pleasures in life that we enjoy as a family. We love to go on a road trip especially if we can't afford to go on a major vacation. Local trips or just plain JoyRides is fun with these Burritos of ours. These photos were taken when we were coming home from our one week getaway in Ocean City this year. That's a very long drive so hubby and I make sure that we are ready to deal with the travel woes. Below are some of the tips that really works for us when we go on long road trips.
10. Point Out to them the beauty of nature. Luckily for us, both of our children love outdoors/nature so they enjoy what they see especially farms with animals. Industrial buildings is also one of their favorite topic. If you involve your kids in a conversation, they would surely show enthusiasm and boredom is unlikely to happen.
The holiday season really is a wonderful time of year when you can stop for a little while, look around, and take in all of the blessings in your life. They are also a perfect opportunity for reconnecting with family and friends you have not been able to see for a while as a result of a busy life keeping you apart.
But the holidays can also be extremely stressful. Shopping for gifts, making plans with many different people, and finding time to stay sane through it all is definitely tough. And, sometimes, all you really need is to get away for a little while, especially if you are experiencing a lot of tension in your relationships. So what are some quick getaways you can book?
Antigua is a city in Guatemala that is known for its beauty, its slow pace, and its relaxed attitude, so it is absolutely perfect for getting away from the winter blues and from the stress created by the holiday season. You can find a variety of places to stay, such as apartments and hotels, but do not expect to see high-rises, so you will feel like you are travelling back to a much simpler time.
London is a vibrant, diverse city that truly has something for everyone. If you are yearning for some excitement and you want to do something a little different this holiday season, try booking your stay in some serviced apartments in London, as you will not be disappointed by all that there is to do and see. From theatres and museums, to a variety of tourist attractions, museums, and historical sites, you can take some time to take in new experiences rather than following the same old holiday routine that you have done every year so far.
The island of Aruba is one of the most gorgeous islands on the planet, so it is no wonder that so many tourists flock to it throughout the year when they need to get away from it all and recharge their batteries under the warm sunshine and in the crystal clear waters. Book a stay at one of the many beautiful resorts, where you will be pampered with easy access to a soft sandy beach, a large swimming pool, delicious food, and friendly locals and fellow travellers.
For those who want to head to the United States, and for those already living in the US who want to get away from it all and head to a tropical destination, Miami is highly recommended. Beautiful beaches, exciting nightlife, and restaurants serving delicious cuisine will make your stay interesting and memorable. You can even take a short cruise while you are there to the nearby islands of the Bahamas.
With so many amazing things to do and see around the holidays, there is no reason why you should spend them at home if you don't want to. Or, create a balance between family time and getaway time by planning a quick getaway to one of these destinations. You won't regret it.
