Chicago Downtown

August 23, 2007 - Thursday

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.

Most of these brands are highly recommended by leading dermatologists and beauty experts so why not visit them today? You can conveniently order online and you can get back something in return.

Sights & Sounds Theater Experience

Church Weekend Fellowship and Sight and Sounds Experience, Pennsylvania - July 27-28,2007

We missed the Friday fellowship with our church family. However, we were able to catch up for the Sight and Sound Experience at the millenium theater in Pennsylvania. We watched the show "In The beginning". The show is worth recommending, a stage play performance with awesome sound effects and props that looked like real. Animals used were real, and even got their chance to march back and forth the stage.

 How I wish photos are allowed inside, but they won't except during the show break.

Photos were all from our church family friends and some for me and my husband as well.

Church Camping - Solomon's Island

LCOG Church Family Camping - Solomon's Island, Maryland - July 13-14, 2007

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.

Excursion at Skyline Caverns

June 22-23, 2007 - Alexandria, Virginia

Our trip to Alexandria was purely for work purpose. Hubby was offered to give a lecture with the US Army officers there, so we drove down there and checked in at Best Western Inn. This was a short trip so we only got the chance to tour Skyline Caverns which was 2 hours drive from Alexandria. It was both our first time with my husband to tour a cave and it was really chilly down there. If you love nature especially caves, then try Skyline Caverns. There are some more cave attractions in Virginia, but so far Skyline was the one closest to us. :).

A Day of Fun in Tulsa, Oklahoma

June 5-8, 2007 (Tulsa, Oklahoma)

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.


June 7, 2007

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!

This one really wanted to catch somebody's attention! He's kinda making himself impressive...he was aware he was being on camera.

Some fishes on the pond.

My_photos_068

I thought I could just lie on the bench and get some sleep...hehehe..hubby said gottcha! and click goes the camera! geesh!



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.

Inside the museum:

Mwah to my doggie!

An alley of paintings!

We kept on figuring this weird figure but we really don't know what it is except for that eyes and lips and for sure that's human's, wala nang iba!..lol!



Tulsa Zoo & Living Museum:

We went straight ahead to the zoo...and by the way, all of our trips were all done in a day..that's what happens when we do have little time left.

We went first to the elephant encounter...they're my husband's favorite animal, the elephants! We saw sneezy, the male elephant who's 34 years old. He was actually playing on the poolside.

Sneezy's girlfriends. I forgot the name of the other one, but the other elephant's name is gunda.



My_photos_082

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.

The tiger even was in the mood to come closer to us and made his pose!



My_photos_109

And the neighbor lion too!



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...

Inside the train



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.



Afterwhich, I was sooo tired and exhausted, and was very, very thirsty! The temperature was super hot! we were in the 90F that day!

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!!!

My_photos_114




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!
