Since we didn't do much visit to some places, we just thought of going to Millenium Park for a quick visit before we go back home the next day. I was curious about that famous giant bean shape thing in the park so we went there primarily to see it.

August 18 & 19, 2007 - We stayed at our cousin's house in Niles for two-days:). My cousin had two days off so she could be with us together with some cousins as well. It was fun being with them once again.
Nanet and Jhing did an excellent job in giving their singing abilities :). It was fun being with family doing the karaoke too :)
Just in case you want to hear a sample of their voice, click to watch the video :).
Don't try to convince me go singing coz you'll gonna regret it lol!

In order for a website to rank well in search engines, there are at least three key components to consider. First is the content. They say "content is king." It means a site has pages of natural relevant content. Second, are incoming links, (also known as votes) and third, are search engine friendly sites. Of all the three, building incoming links is the trickiest and the most time consuming aspect, but it is very important to improve your rankings. The more inbound links your site has, the more popular it is. And search engines loves popular sites! This is where your page rank comes in depending on how popular the site is. Speaking of page rank, please take note that edu links does not focus on page rank. The value is based on the overall authority of your site which includes your site's age, backlinks, outgoing links, the quantity as well as the quality of pages indexed. These makes edu links powerful.

This was a 2-day affair for our church family members to camp out in Solomon's island, but we were only able to catch up for the trip on Saturday, July 14, since hubby had to work late of Friday.
Did you know that this place is an ideal for a real, quiet vacation far from the bustling noise of the city? We were not able to go further around the area since we had to go back as soon as possible for another family affair get-together.
Here are some quick photos that we had before heading home.
I am looking forward to someday go back there to get a full visit and tour the place. If you enjoy relaxing by the beach, then I guess this is the ideal place for you...when you are in Maryland :).
See the real beauty of SOLOMON'S ISLAND. It's nostalgic and awesome.

Tulsa, Oklahoma the night of June 5. Airport security was on alert at level orange, so there was much flight delays. So far, it wasn't that crowded probably because it was still mid week and early when we left for Tulsa. Our itinerary was BWI - OHARE - TULSA Int'l Aiport.
We were checked in at Radisson, and we didn't start doing our usual itinerary schedules not until on the 7th the whole day. Of course, I understand this is not a pleasure trip but rather my hubby's work trip on purpose. But on the other side of it, it is still a good chance to have certain time of his day reserved for our usual tour trip.

First itinerary: Philbrook Museum of Art - just 15 minutes away from our hotel so that was good. We both learned to love the place. It's somewhat like a combination of a botanical garden, and a museum. Of course, inside the museum were variety of collections...paintings, sculptures, etc...
We had captured some photos of us and in the garden...we found it more mesmerizing in the garden, really!
Meantime, while walking alongside, we saw few squirrels playing under the tree looking for their nuts. We managed to capture one who kept on coming close to us. I found him so cute, doing little things on his own with his food..lol!
We didn't had any breakfast, so after a brief walk in the garden, we went to a restaurant which is located inside the museum. It's a small one but somewhat a formal one...and good food! I loved the grilled chicken with lettuce and tomatoes. yummy! ...with a refreshing iced tea.
Hubby caught me chasing the geese again! He tried to stop me because he said they really have a painful bite. Most of these geese are mothers who are protecting their youngs, so they were a li'l bit aggressive.
Inside the butterfly house! All we had to do was to catch a photo glimpse of their beautiful wings flapping together. Here are some good ones we captured! I compressed the photos for a much larger space...
Actually, it was a good idea to ride on the train just to go around the zoo. The good thing about the zoo is you can get closer view with the animals and get good shots. When you're on the train, they would just let you tour around the area and can still see the animals around.
Tulsa Air & Space Museum and Planetarium:
It was just a short visit. The museum was not that large, and there are some few war planes inside used during the world war 1 & 2 plus some small plane collections too. We tried watching a show in the planetarium but hubby said it was very boring...and so he slept during that whole show! Funny thing was, he was snoring while the show was on...gessh! I had to shake him a li'l bit..good thing, nobody complained hahaha!!!
Whew! It was a fun day afterall! A bit tiring but was worth it!
We had a tough day going back home...all flights were delayed, we were inside the plane and waited for the plane's take off for more than 30 minutes! Guck! That wasn't fun! From Tulsa to Chicago, still long waits, Chicago to Baltimore, flight was delayed for 45 minutes, airport crowded! Haay!!! super dead tired arriving back home!
Above all else, we thanked God for making us safe back home! We were blessed to face another new day with strength to do our deck staining which will be the next topic! I got sunburns!!! waaaahhhh!!!
I'll catch up later folks!
