Niagara Falls

The American Falls, the Bridal Veil Falls and the Horseshoe Falls collectively make up the wonder that is Niagara Falls. The American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls make up the American side and the Horseshoe Falls is on the Canadian side.

This beautiful place, just more than an hour drive from our place, is easily one of our favorite places to visit here.

Below are snapshots from our latest visit.

We took the same boat trip (from backdrop) earlier that day. It was the first time for us and it was well worth it. 

 The little munchkin makes snapshots more challenging :) I cannot keep him still for a few minutes

The most difficult part in deciding whether to stay put or migrate was the thought of leaving family and friends behind. Missed birthdays, get-togethers --- and basically just not being able to see people you care about in a jiffy.

The series of farewell meet-ups made me realize how blessed we are because a lot of people care about us.

 Masci Barkada: Bittersweet as this was the last time we were complete :(
Miss you Vers.

Clan! These guys made my UP Engg days memorable.  

 From exams to diapers and breastfeeding... we have gone a long way guys!

I have to find a couple more pics and I'd post them as soon as I find them. 

Miss you guys!

Really??? Three years?

Oh my! Has it really been 3 years since I last updated this space. I have been a very bad blogger :(

A lot of things have happened in the last 3 years but the major one was our move to Canada. Yup, we are now living in the land of the maple leaf, the Raptors and the CN Tower.

Will be posting more often from now on.

Happy 3rd Month Birthday Noah

Our little bunso is now three (3) months old.
 Happy :-)
 Sad :-(
 With Kuya, who calls bunso "Noahkiss..."
Adorable dimply smile
Happy third month birthday sweetheart. Mommy is so thankful because you are very healthy (apart from your minor allergic rhinitis that sadly runs in our family). Makes all my pumping efforts whenever we're apart so worth it.
As you know, we all love you to bits...

Lucas's 5th and Noah's 2nd Month Birthdays

Mid-August was very special to our family. Kuya turned 5 years old last August 15 and bunso turned two (2) months old last August 16. Since the events were on consecutive days, we decided to have just one cake for the celebrants.

HRH Prince George of Cambridge

Yup, a follower here. My husband was rolling his eyes whenever I'd switch the channel to CNN or BBC to get royal baby updates. In the middle of the night, while nursing my son no less. My Royal "interest" began when I got hold of my Lola Ima's biography of the late Princess Diana. My Lola was one of Lady Di's biggest fans (she called Camilla "Kabayo" back then). When she's home, she'd bring her stash of People magazines with snippets about Lady Di. And we'd gossip (well, she'll talk and I'd listen) about Diana updates as if we knew her personally.

Fast forward to 2011 and I was one of the many who felt great interest on the details of the royal wedding. I mean, come on, this is as close as we can get to a modern day fairy tale. A future king marrying a commoner, for love! Important to note though that almost all heirs to European royal houses are married to "commoners". Denmark's Prince Frederick is married to Australian Mary Donaldson, Netherlands' Queen Maxima is from Argentina, Spain's Crown Princess Letizia is a former newscaster, Norway's Queen-in-Waiting is also a commoner. Let's not forget Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden who married her one-time trainor. Monaco's Prince Albert married Charlene, a South African Olympian. And the list goes on and on....

But I digress, last week, royal watchers all over the world were agog when Kensington Palace confirmed that Duchess Kate was admitted at St. Mary's, early signs of labor. I am sure a lot were also tuned in to CNN or BBC to get updates. I was! And I am not even from a Commonwealth country.

And so, everyone was pleased when after a looong wait, the Duke and Duchess introduced their newborn son, Prince George Alexander Louis to the world. Here are pictures from
