Karl's Surprise Birthday Bash

Karl's 34th Birthday…

Thanks to the great friends who made it possible
Warren, Glenda and Wilbert for hosting it at their home
Charlie for organizing
and to the rest of the gang, for all the food that we got to enjoy.
…I didn't have to plan anything, it was refreshing and a bit weird to hand over all the planning to someone else but I really appreciate all the love and effort put by everyone to make sure it remained a surprise.

* Kids were excited to shout SURPRISE!


* Kid Magnet

* Birthday boy with all the kiddos

* Our Family + 1 :)

* My Fave Girlfriends...

* The Best Guy Friends

…I am just so glad that I found really great friends here in Canada that really got our backs.

Intro to Gliders and Gliders 4 Passed!

For the skating lesson, we decided to continue them at Bill Copeland, Burnaby.

One of the reason is LOCATION. Killarney is quite a drive from Kimi's new school. Kalen is on the Child class while Kimi was still in the Pre School age group so they are now on different classes.

As for the TIME, I found a same time class for both Kimi and Kenzo which works well for me.

DAYS, I have an issue with though, it is 2x a week compared to Killarney's 1x a week but we made it through...



* They go up to the next level- YEY!

Opening the Disney Store...

Finally, there was a free day in school that was not a vacation for everyone and I saw it as a chance to get Kimi for a small fun adventure… 

I decided to let her experience being the Disney's special key holder for the day. We bought some breakfast and camped out a bit outside the Disney Store to make sure we were the first one out there.

* Key fit for the BIG lock

* If the Key fits...

* A Special Souvenir

* Photo Opportunity

Alexander's 6th Costume/Bowling Birthday Party

With Halloween just around the corner, birthdays near the date tend to lean toward costume party with a mix of activity such as Alexander's 6th. The party was held at Rev's Burnaby and was well attended by classmates and friends.

* Dressed Up but ready to bowl…

The cake was made by Goldilocks which explains why it looks like a cake from my childhood days back in the Philippines.

* Alexander doing the traditional cake singing etc…

I did not purchase a costume for Kimi this year and decided to use an old one which still fits after 2 years ;-P

* Snow White

…and a steal of a costume from Gymboree for Kenzo

* My Li'l Cowboy
