Camping Fun

  I am so behind on so much!
a few months back we went camping with some friends and it was a blast! The girls had tons of fun and ray and I enjoyed being in the outdoors with family and friends.
Raychel went tubing for the first time!!! She had such a blast!! Oceana was too scared to get on it, but maybe next year she’ll be brave enough to try it.


Oceana’s 3rd Birthday!

   We celebrated Oceana’s Birthday on her actual birthday which was on Wednesday June 13th. It was a last minute put together birthday party, but it actually turned out great! I think it turned out better then if we would have planned it in advance.
Before her little birthday party started we both went to get our hair done with my sister-in-law.
Oceana looked so cute sitting in the chair getting her hair all curled up! She kept turning back all shy to where I was to see if I approved of how her hair was looking, and every time she would turn I would smile big and give her a thumbs up!

I very much enjoyed this bonding time with my little OC.

 After getting our hair done we went to Baskin Robbins for ice cream and a milk shake! We both had tons of fun spending quality time with each other! I defiantly have to do this with each one of my girls.

We got home and a few hours later the party started. Oceana had such a blast with all her little friends and cousins.

Happy 3rd Birthday Oceana!!! We love you so much, sweet peanut!!

Brandi’s Baby Shower

A few weeks back, Meagan and I headed over to Brandi’s for her beautiful baby shower for sweet baby Jalilah! We didnt stay long, but the few minutes we were there was a lot of fun.

Breakfast for Champions & a Tow

  I met up with my wonderful friends and my lovely sister for breakfast. Its such a blessing to get together with friends and enjoy some laughs together and mommy conversations or in my sisters case mommy to be conversations ;). 

 When I took the picture of the Eggs Benedict I was counting 1, 2, 3 snap {lol} Clarissa stated laughing and said, “say cheese!” we all started laughing. I have no clue why I counted to take the picture of the eggs benedict haha! fun times.

After breakfast we all headed out or so what I thought was going to happen, but my car had different plans, it wanted to stick around. It wouldn’t start! So, I called AAA and they said it was going to be about 2 hours for them to get there. My little peanuts and I just hung around till AAA got there. Ray had to pick up Raychel from school and my mom came and picked me, Oceana and Madison up since my car wasn’t going to start at all, and It was going to have to get towed :(. I am car-less till hopefully tomorrow, we shall see.

  You can plan out your day as much as you’d like, but God is the one in control. If your plans don’t turn out the way you had planned them, then it’s God trying to teach us something new. He is the ruler of all the earth and the universe!

Bri’elle’s Birthday Party & Bible Study

  After taking our Christmas family pictures, we headed over to Brandi & Jay’s casa for bible study and to celebrate Bri’elle’s 2nd birthday!
I know I sound like a broken record but, I love spending time with these girls! They are all just A-mazing!! We just started a Beth Moore study and it was so refreshing to hear her speak. Cant wait for next months study!

Brandi is so amazing, she did a craft with all the kids making cute little reindeer!!

 We also exchanged gifts which was a lot of fun!!

Happy 2nd birthday Bri’elle! God has truly blessed you with such wonderful parents.
Bri’elle, I pray that you will be God’s light in your generation… that people may see how amazing our God is through you.
May He bless you all the days of your life!
Feliz Cumpleanos, chula!

A Date and A Birthday Dinner

  Last Saturday we dropped the girls off at my parents and we headed to San Francisco. We took Bart to the city. While we were riding Bart, Ray and I couldn’t remember another time we both traveled together on Bart, so this might have been our first -ha!

We got to the city and went to the jewelry mart and looked around. After spending quality time window shopping we headed to Bobo’s Steak House to celebrate Ray’s good friend, Manuel’s birthday. Ray and I have never been to Bobo’s Steak House, but we are for sure going there again!! Oh. my. goodness. their steak is to die for! Not only is their steak good but their side dishes are also so good!

Manuel and his wife, Suzie.

Lobster Soup!

After dinner we headed to a little spot called, The Parler. We hang out there for a little while and then we all headed back home. It was fun hanging out with friends and celebrating Manuel’s 36 birthday!

Wordless Wednesday ~ Bible Study Group/Play Dates!

 Oh. My. Goodness. I was ginormous!


Jay’s Birthday and Wine Tasting with the Hubs

Two weekends ago, after church, Ray and I met up with our friends to have breakfast and celebrate Jay’s birthday! I love me some good breakfast and fellowship with great friends! Happy Birthday Jay!! May God bless you with many more years!

After having a late breakfast, Ray and I headed to Livermore for some wine tasting. As most of you know my dad works at Concannon winery, so he was able to get us harvest tickets. While wine tasting we met up with my brother-in-law and sister-in-law. We all had a nice time together tasting all the different wines, listening to live music, and visiting all the beautiful wineries.

Jay with his beautiful family!

I love you guys!

 the brothers!

 At Concannon i seen Maricela, Maricela is one of the owners of a restaurant i used to work for. Isn’t she beautiful?! not only is she beautiful, she’s a great person!

Double Shower

Last weekend I went to two showers, my girlfriend Melissa’s and my cousin’s wife, Austina, which was held at my parents house. It was very nice spending time with friends at Melissa’s and it was nice spending time with family at Austina’s. I love showers, I love celebrating the coming of new life! Both of these girls looked beautiful, they both were glowing of happiness and excitement to soon meet their precious gifts that were sent from above. Pretty soon, this month they will both be meeting their little boys!
