Beautiful Houses

Going back from our Kennywood trip, we saw these beautiful houses on top of the hill.  I think some of these  are upscale rental houses but they are beautiful  to look  at from the road.  
I even captured their  email and contact number weee.  I like their company name, Summerset.    Pennsylvania is a high taxing state but you can see it from their infrastructure, they are well maintained and better than the state  that taxes their residents less.

Silos on the Farm

I love going on a road trip because I get to see the vast farm land.  It somehow remind  me of my childhood seeing the  farm land although it is very modern compared to what  I grew up with in my former country.  One of the many things I love seeing are the big Silos.  Below are some of the photos I took during our trip to Maryland.
Photos were taken  from Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland.

Traffic .. Lesson Learned from our Trip to Ocean City

We went to Ocean City, the day after the  4th of July .  We did not anticipate the big crowd that is going to Ocean City on that weekend.   Oh it was a pain because we were just inching along and it did not help that I had to go to the bathroom so bad.  The kids were  getting agitated as we were stuff in a heavy traffic for  over two hours.
I told my husband, never again we will come here  the day after the 4th of July or weekend for that matter.   We finally  broke through the traffic and saw the welcome sign.
 Even in the city, the  traffic was  so congested.  I betcha if it wasn't for the kids in the van, my husband would have said  sweet words already  because of frustration lol.
 After reaching the hotel we  stayed at, our children could not wait to go in the beach and enjoy the sand.
My husband was ten years old when he first saw Ocean City and he was in his teens  during his last visit.  He said that 30 years later did a lot of change to this place.  Smelling the ocean air reminds me of my hometown in the Philippines, it made me miss my family but glad to see the smiles in our children's faces.

Mona Lisa

One of the  rising star that I recently started to like as a singer is Kawehi.  She is very talented and she actually has her own maschine studio at her garage.  As talented as she is though, I am surprise that she is not very popular.  One of her songs that I really like is the Mona Lisa, she did a great job singing it.  Here is the video of it.

Celebrating Birthday in Ocean City

We celebrated her 9th birthday in Ocean City a couple of months ago. She was pretty stoked and literally grinning from ear to ear. We seldom go to the ocean so this was a real treat to our children.  Last year, we went to  Lake Eerie and  celebrated her birthday there but  she love Ocean City more.
We don't travel a lot  due to finances constraints but we make sure to  do it on special occasions such as birthdays and  anniversaries when our budget permits.
