Break Time!

after playing with benjamin, tita yvette's son, aidan just had to have a rest...benjamin was trying aidan's strength on everything! everytime, aidan is playing with a toy, benjamin would then grab it from him...but aidan was smarter than that, he ran from benjamin and when this did not stop B, he shrug B's hands off his toy! Yes, Aidan knew if he owns it or not. See? And no need to tell you where he got it from....yes, of course,...from his poppa!

okay aidan, get up and stretch, stretch, stretch!

look at aidan's outfit. we had to do some layering with his clothes, aside from the cold weather, well, aidan needs to be in fashion! =) just optimizing aidan's clothes until he outgrows from it.

One Big Happy Groupie.

no, no, aidan can not hide it no more! he has been enjoying himself too much with cousins nils and mika! especially with a-e who was too "gigil" with aidan! a-e has been showering me with love, food and toys! a-e really knows his way with kids huh!

loved this photo, one can feel the warmth and joy they're feeling back then! wish we could have stayed longer!

looking forward to more times with you cousins!

Driving....My Momma Crazy!

March 30, 2006, originally uploaded by Our Awesome Planet.

getting bored indoors, aidan saw this car! a car that has been waiting for him at a-e's backyard eversince he arrived from LA. aidan has a sharp eye, ain't he? actually, momma was hoping aidan wouldn't be able to see it because of the cold weather especially outdoors but alas, there is no more escaping the weather...oh well, why not give aidan a chance to enjoy more of his stay with a-e. the kids, nils and mika at this time, was in school so while waiting for them, aidan played non-stop. Nobody can stop him not even to eat! momma even had a hard time to brbing aidan out of the car. aidan now knows what he wants and what he can do if he is being persuaded to do otherwise. gotta have a new strategy momma!

Me and Momma. Momma was excited for me. Kita naman e...because this is all Aidan's 1st times....1st time to go to Las Vegas, 1st time to feel and play with the snow...1st time to feel cold without any aircon turned on! Wihee!...Aidan love it here!

Aidan's First Snow.

Snow @ Mt. Charleston - 7, originally uploaded by antondiaz.

It was no surprise to us that Aidan would love this place. Aside from feeling the cool weather, he can sense that it was different walking on the snow. He truly had fun on this trip to Mt. Charleston. Good thing, A-e thought of this! We really went here to catch the snow. Even if there weren't any snow falling, at least Aidan got to hold and feel the snow.

Uh-oh, where is Aidan?

just wana share with you the grandest time because cousins Nils and Mikaela was there..and of course, a proof that they are real and not just ficticious characters...

A-e, thanks so much for the wonderful time spent with you. Momma was very happy to be with you becasue she misses you...yeah, i know her son alright...I love you too! I won't forget you...bec. you made me stay in the carseat/ sroller always esp during long drives/ strolls inspite of my objections...and most specially of all the yoghurts and all the yummy food you let me eat!

Diaz Family @ Red Rock Canyon, LV.

Red Rock Canyon - 12, originally uploaded by antondiaz.

nope, we were not in the desert but at the Red Rock Canyon...A-e drove us there with cousins, Nils and Mika, it was a 1-hr trip but it was worth it for tourist like us. Too bad our time was limited so we weren't able to do rock climbing or just a stroll, maybe another time then! =) Count me in! Am sure Aidan will be big enough to rock climb the next time he's back in Las Vegas.
This is one of the trips Poppa was with us. He had to go back home (to wash and iron our clothes left behind..hihihi) while me and Momma spend time with A-e and the kids.
Thank you Uncle Lorenz for driving Poppa here in Vegas.
Alas, this is another family picture of us! Dumadami na a!

Happy Being Here.

we just had to let Aidan sit on one of the benches there...wala lang. Happy naman siya diba?

I Love My Poppa!

One more hug for Poppa. I'm going to miss you Poppa . Now be good okay while we also behave here in LA. I love you!

Aidan's At The Inn of the Seventh Ray.

Inn of the Seventh Ray - 22, originally uploaded by antondiaz.

where is that?!...well, it is in Topanga, LA...that is a long way from Manila but we went anyway...all because we wanted to go to the most romantic resto in LA! Food here is great because all the ingredients are organically grown and freshly made cooked in nut or olive oils...ehem, it was pretty obvious that the food was yummy!
Aidan truly enjoyed being in LA except for the countless attire he had to wear while being there.

Hi Ninong Lorenz!

halo!...long time no see!...and here we are with our luggage...we just want to rest....but who would want to do that in LA?...hahaha

aidan has no idea that he just flew across the world and he is now clue at all! clueless Aidan!

LA, Here We Are!

...we definitely are here! pretty cold huh...

we need more sleep...but before that, we need our daily dose of picture session....shoot! shoot! shoot!

Just Woke Up.

..alas, aidan just woke up after a full 10+ hours of sleep...good boy huh...momma can't thank you enough that you slept almost the entire trip..the only issue momma had was that her big ass was sore after all those hours of sitting! well, nobody to blame....

good thing the asian man moved to another seat so momma need not be so conscious of whatever aidan may do...but then, too bad for that man because aidan was sound asleep after a few minutes of travel...

Aidan's LA Adventure! must go on...on so we leave this photo for you to think about your life...hahaha...

we're in dreamland so i hope you'll be too!

Looks Familiar?

yep, you got it! Diaz' family is here for a month! yes, you heard it right! We'll rock your world! can't wait to see ninong lorenz! and am hungry!

btw, it is cold out here...winter is is already spring! of course, for filipinos like us, who are used to the heat back in manila, isn't used to the cold out here...thus, the long sleeves and jackets! aidan boy sure escaped the heat in manila, lucky boy!

Even Here!

Aidan just woke up from his night sleep. We are almost there...calling lola and lolo to say i miss you!

PAL FLIGHT to LA is one of the best schedule when flying with a toddler. We were in business class, an advantage momma had over poppa, it meant good food and more space! Good thing, our supposedly neighbor moved out and had himself transferred to a childfree neighbor. How lucky we were!

First LA Dinner.

they say, a way to a man's heart is through his stomach...they forgot to include matter what condition aidan is in, as long as there is food, he will be up and about!...nothing can tire this young lad...of course, you have to let him get his daily dose of sleep but after that, you better fuel yourself up for you will be one tired nanny of this kid...

we were at this new mall (forgot the name since it has been months since we've been there...and today is june...)...nice mall...too nice for me to forget the name..hahaha
