Summer Coastin’ and Singing Around

Summer weather’s been pretty awesome lately so we’ve been sulking the warmth, enjoying the golden sunshine, and chowing down on some good food at the International Summer Night Market in Richmond. Rox went out to perform at the New Westminster 12th Street Festival and just recently, at the 2014 Pinoy Festival in Vancouver. Here are a couple of snaps from the International Summer Night Market and 2014 Pinoy Festival, with a bonus clip of Rox performing that day.

Picking a Handful of Health

Last Sunday, the Browns and the Ortillans went on a blueberry picking craze! Well, not really a craze but the kids enjoyed picking them off and collecting them in a bucket. It was the first for me and I thought it was a pretty neat especially with kids. Here are some snaps from that day. 

Benjie’s Birthday Week

My first born just turned three!!!

This week was a great week – my family from NYC came to visit for Benjie’s 3rd birthday, which we celebrated during the Victoria Day long weekend. The weather was pretty awesome with very minimal rain in forecast so we got to go around and check out some places my Mom, Kester and Linda have never been. We actually got to eat at this fish & chips spot near Granville Island/False Creek called Go Fish

Skagit Tulip Festival

We finally made it to the annual tulip festival and checked out the most amazing, vibrant colors of this tulip farm in Tulip Town, located in Skagit, Washington. The sight is definitely one magnificent view, even my pictures can’t do justice and you have to be there to believe it. Enjoy the photos of our family day out before heading to downtown Seattle.
