Wow I can't believe it's been over 4 months since I last blogged. A lot went on during that time. The boys are growing so fast and keeping us pretty busy. My Mom moved in with us the beginning of July. She had retired from her job to be closer to the rest of our family and of course us. Now that she's living with us, the boys no longer have to go to my Grandparents house. Currently at my work, my position had changed from doing AP to Facilities. I actually like my new position cause I'm learning and experiencing something new every day. Anyways here's recaps of what went on during my missing blog months:
Vegas (5/22-5/24/09) - Finally a vacation that we both needed. It was just the 2 of us so that was nice. Wah got us a room at the Wynn hotel and it was beautiful. We had a view of the strip and the pool and the bed was the best thing I ever slept in. Even though we went to bed around 3 am and woke up at 8 am, it felt like we slept in forever. Best sleep I've ever had!!! So within the first 2 hrs of being there I had an accident. We were walking towards the mall and I was like "WTF! Why is my dress wet?!?" I had brought a bottle of water with me and thought that the lid was closed. Well it wasn't and my purse and side of my dress was soaking wet! What sucked the most was that my camera, phone, and wallet was inside. My camera was done and luckily after putting a hair dryer for 30 min on my phone it finally came back to life. I made Wah buy me a new camera. There was no way I was going to be in Vegas and not take pictures. After purchasing my new Nikon Cool Pix camera, Wah and I decided to walk down the strip. I had fun walking around going through all the hotels, going to the Secret Gardens, and just taking in everything . Later that night, we met up with our friends Thuy and Raz. For my birthday they had bought me a tickets to go watch "O" at the Bellagio. When we got to the ticket counter they had told us we were sitting at the very front and warned us we would get wet. She chuckled as she was warning us. Little did I know that I was going to get soaked!!! If you have ever been to their show, at the beginning they interact with the audience. It was 2 clowns holding an umbrella with big holes in them. Every time they heard it rain or opened it, it would just pour down water. So I was sitting watching them do their thing and all of the sudden one of the clowns made eye contact with me. He lifted up his umbrella and opened it above me and OMG it started to pour water down on me. Luckily the water was warm and I was wearing water proof mascara. LOL! Other than that the show was amazing. I suggest anyone who goes to Vegas to watch the show. Here are a few pics from the first day: 2nd day of being there we went to the outlet and more site seeing. That evening we went out to Tao beach with Raz, Thuy, Jaimie, Hoanmy, Pearl, and Sophie. Our next trip is going to be Maui & Oahu in April 2010! Can't wait!
JuneNephi's 27th Birthday - Every year for Nephi's birthday we go to Benihana's and for some reason we get the same cook every time. It's fate I'm telling yah. Over the weekend we celebrated his, Raz, and Brian's birthday at Raz's house.
Okay I'm going to bed but I'll add more later. Good Night!
So for Mother's day weekend we really didn't do anything. I told Wah that he didn't have to celebrate Mother's day so that way we don't have to do it for Father's day. Too much going on that we need to save our money anyways. I did how ever spend time with my Mom, Aunt, and Grandma over the weekend. It was nice to just sit around and do nothing. Thank god the sun was out that weekend. Tristan was sporting his sun glasses that day and Kai had fun playing with Jordan (his uncle).
One of Wah's friend from high school is getting married so they had his bachelor party. It was nice to see Nabeel and Jim again. They came by the house to see the boys and to shower after playing ball. It was really nice to catch up and remember our high school days. Gosh we're getting old.
This year Matthew celebrated his birthday at Park Lanes. It was Kai's first time bowling. It was cute trying to hold the bowling ball. Tristan was just standing on the side cheering the boys on. His favorite part was when the ball return machine. He would put his ear up against the side and listen to the noise. It was funny.
So my little baby Tristan broke his 2 front teeth. He was in the bathtub playing in the water and noticed that Kai was peeing on the toilet. So he was curious and peered out of the tub and slipped. He chipped his front tooth! Oh gosh I felt so bad for him. After crying for awhile he seemed to be fine and drooling like crazy.
The next day I took Tristan in to the dentist and they had to give us some bad news. Since one of his tooth's nerves were exposed it would most likely cause an infection to his permanent tooth. His other tooth had a fracture in it which was next to his nerves so we decided to pull both of them out. Let me tell you it was probably one of the most traumatizing things we probably both had to go through. Since Tristan is so young they had to put him in a straight jacket looking thing and put his head in between 2 boards strapped down. I hated seeing him like that. Also I had to hold his hands and knees down so he wouldn't try to grab the instruments. They gave him laughing gas which didn't work because his nose was stuffed so they gave him a shot to numb him. Right when they did that they yanked both of his teeth out real fast. Boy did he cry his lungs out. I just held him for awhile while they cleaned up and he fell asleep. They told us that he can't suck on anything or eat solids for 42 hrs. When they told me that, I was thinking "Great how are we going to do this?". Tristan is still attached to his bottle so it was going to be difficult. It was really hard when we got home cause he just wanted to drink his milk. He just cried and cried till he put himself back to sleep. I don't think I got any sleep that night. Anyways he's doing fine now. He healed up very nicely and he's a happy little boy. hehe
I can't believe that I'm 27. That means I have one more year till my high school reunion. Time sure flies by these days. So at work Cindy, Jeannie, and Sharon made my birthday so memorable. I was walking through our lunch room and this is who was waiting for me: Oh Edward you remembered it was my birthday. hehe Sharon made one of my favorite dishes which was her Cabbage casserole with Italian sausage and she made me her absolutely yummy chocolate cupcake. It's like biting into heaven when you eat it. Here are a few other pictures from the rest of the day: Oh yah so Jeannie was upset that day and I had to take a picture of her. It's the "Don't mess with me face!" haha
Later that weekend my friends and I celebrated my birthday at Big Al's in Vancouver. I had a lot of fun because I haven't seen everyone in awhile. We had a great time eating and bowling. Later on that night we headed to the Beer & Wine festival. I didn't really drink much cause I knew I had to be designated driver that night. Anyways I'm not much of a drink like I used to be. heheIf you want to see more pictures, click on the link below: Birthday Picture Album
