Sorry, our computer has been out of commission for quite some time, hence no pictures this time, but at least I can write and catch up on things. School is finally out!! I had a good semester and even a better summer once grades were posted. Since March...
We went to Southern Cali for spring break. It was a great vacation. We were able to go to the San Diego Zoo and Disneyland. The kids loved the zoo and now will never be satisfied with our little Sierra Safari Zoo here. Disneyland was quite the adventure. Two out of the five days we were there in Cali it was freezing, windy and raining, but we came eight hours to go to Disneyland and we were not going to let some rain ruin it. So as we are driving there, it is pouring. Cali downpours, not rains. We paid the parking ticket, got our stroller all loaded up with kids, jackets, blankets and things for the day in the park and got into the elevator. Out of the elevator to the tram, about 20 steps in, we were soaked. Umbrella useless for the most part. Our jeans were sticking to our legs. The kids were dry, except for the part that sticks out of ths stroller, which included their shoes and blankets. So 20 steps in, we decided it would be a miserable day in Disneyland and not to mention a waste of money, if we were miserable. So we turned back.
We decided to stay in the area, just in case it cleared up, but remembering we were in Cali, not Reno, where storms pass in five minutes. We completely lucked out!! In about 20 min, after we had left the park, the skies were clear.
All in all, it turned out to be a fabulous day at the park! Hardly any clouds, weather was ok, but no more rain and man, did we feel the magic this time. We got to meet almost all the princesses there and even met Mary Poppins, Peter Pan and the fairy godmother. We were so thankful the weather cleared up and it was an awesome trip
Thalia turned three finally in May. We had the usual birthday party with all the family, which we love having. We got the her a trampoline for her birthday and a sandbox. Man, if I had knew about this earlier, I never have to entertain kids while I am trying to cook and clean. They all three will play on it for hours, and it has a net, so I can literally lock them on.. j/k
Mercedes had her first dance recital, which many of you came and thank you so much for all the support! She told me she loved to dance on the stage and her favorite part was when everyone clapped for her when she danced. She did a great job and let lose at the end.
Chris got a really cool internship with the Sports Med program at UNR. He starts in August and will be working side by side with the UNR football team, included practices and all their home games. He is really excited for it and so are we. The experience will be great and hopefully opens some doors for the future.
As for me, I have had a great time scheduling out my freetime to spring cleaning, which I really do enjoy and finishing up house projects!
Sorry about the super long post, but I will be posting pictures soon.
