Weekend Wrap-up... Finally :-)

I hope that everyone's weekend was absolutely wonderful! As I was glancing over everyone's blogs, it looks there were some good times being had. I will definitely have to really sit down and catch up on what's been going on with everyone. My weekend was pretty jam-packed. I will have to figure out how to get some rest from my weekend. But hopefully that won't be too much of a problem since my son will be at camp all this week until Friday afternoon. So, on with my weekend wrap-up! (finally)


This week we actually decided to do Family Fun Friday outside of the home. Usually we rent a movie and order a Little Caesar's Pizza but this week we decided to splurge a little bit. We decided to go get a Costco Pizza (which I absolutely love) and then go to the drive-in. i really love the drive in because it is WAY cheaper than going to the movie theater and you get to see movies. So, we went and saw UP and NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM 2. All three of us enjoyed both movies. I personally enjoyed UP the most. It was absolutely great!!

After the movies were over, we headed home pretty late. We were pretty tired afterwards. And I was definitely ready to go to sleep.


After we slept in a little bit we got ready to head out to a wedding in San Diego of some very dear friends of ours, Jon and Emily. It was such a beautiful wedding and they absolutely deserve it!! These are two down-to-earth, God-serving, generous people. They had the most God-centered wedding/reception that I have ever been to and that was AWESOME!! I love these two dearly. In addition, they have also stepped up and said that if anything were to ever happen to us, that they would take care of our son. That is amazing!! They had their wedding on the Sunset Cliffs in San Diego. It was perfect weather and a perfect view! Here are the some pics of the wedding. I didn't get too many cause we didn't get a good seat up front (since we were trying to save some seats for some friends that were late). But here's what I did get.

The view is beautiful!

The handsome groom - Jonathan
The absolutely beautiful bride - Emily (with her father)
Husband and Wife - Mr. & Mrs. Jon & Emily Shum!!!!

We also took advantage of the fact that we were all dressed up and on the beautiful Sunset Cliffs. So, we got some nice family pics.

The Fam :-)

Me and the Hubby

Father and Son - Two Good-Lookin' Fellows if I do say so myself! :-)
After the wedding, we headed over to the reception at a Chinese Restaurant. I think it was called the Emerald Kitchen (but don't quote me on that). But they had a great amount of food. I didn't pictures of everything as my camera batteries were starting to die.:-( Here's what we had to feast on.

Here's the menu. Basically, it was like a round robin. Everything on the menu was brought to your table at different times and you got to try everything. It was pretty cool.The Shrimp which I think was my favorite
The Vegetarian Dish (which I surprisingly liked more than some of the other stuff)

The duck
The head of the chicken was on the plate!! Crazy! And Tyler's reaction to seeing it! :-)

Almost everything else. As we got closer to the end, we were pretty full. But in this pic is we have fried rice on the top, in the back is the flounder and the vegatarian dish. Up front is the chickena and the lobster toward the front right.

And finally here's a pic of our family with the newly joined family. We love them!!Congratulations Jon & Emily!!


On Sunday morning we woke up really late since we didn't get home until probably one in the morning. So, because of that we went to the 11:00 am service at church (which we were late to). After church we all went home and crashed. We were all so tired that we pretty much slept through the afternoon. When we got up, we started packing Tyler up some stuff for camp. He was getting so excited. After we got his stuff packed, we headed over to my parents's house to eat dinner. My parents ordered Kentucky Fried Chicken (no pics, sorry... but it's just KFC). IT was great cause my bros were there, too, who I don't really get to see too often. It was great catching up with them and relaxing. A great way to end the weekend!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was great but exhausting!! I still have to update on yesterday, too. Will do that this evening. Have a great day everyone!!
