Vegas Baby!

  2 weeks ago (before I knew I was pregnant) we went to Vegas for 6 days. Ray has his seminar (Mike Ferry) out there so the girls and I tagged along. It’s so nice just to get away and have a change of routine.

We had tons of fun!! Are days pretty much consisted of room service in the morning and sometimes room service for lunch and pool time everyday! After Ray would get off his seminar we would head to dinner and walk around the MGM grand hotel.

Friday and Saturday we got to do more since the seminar had finished. We took the girls to circus circus, which they loved, because they got on their first rides!! On Saturday was mostly on all day pool day, and after we headed to Caesers Palace, walked around all the shops, and ate at the Cheesecake Factory. We had such a great time! It’s always good to have a change of routine, no cleaning, no cooking, all day at the pool, and best of all… quality time with the family.

Madison’s 1st Birthday

  Madison you are ONE years old!! Where has the time gone?!
We celebrated your birthday on your birthday, Sunday July 15th. We decided to do something small for you with just the family since we were heading out to Vegas early the next day.
You had a fun time running around and playing. You enjoyed opening up your gifts and playing with some of the new toys you got! When it came to eating the cake you really didn’t chow down like I thought you would, you kinda just stared at the cake and touched it a few times.
Madison, you are so loving to your sisters. When either Raychel or Oceana is crying you run up to them and give them hugs and kisses. You are a sweet heart! You want to keep up with them on whatever they do.
Oh, Mad… you do have a feisty side! Boy, do you not let anyone pick on you! You fight back- hahaha! Even when I tell you no or I take something away from you, you get so mad that you pinch me! I have no clue were this side of you came from ( I think dad lol ). Boy am I going to have my hands full with you!
Madison, besides this feisty side of you… I see that you are one smart girl!! You like coloring at such a young age, 1!! and you hold your pencil/coloring crayon like your supposed to! You’re  a climber… you climb everything even Raychel’s latter and you make it all the way to the top of her bed all by your self. Which is very scary for me, because I do not want you falling off. I hide the latter under oceana’s bed every day. Madison, you also try to jump like your sisters do, Its so funny watching you try to jump. You are a good listener, you understand me when I tell you to bring me something or to give whatever you have to your sister or whoever. Mad, I am so blessed to have you as my daughter, you are amazing! I know God has big plans for you and your sisters!! Never give up on anything and whatever you do give 100% at all times.

Happy 1st Birthday, sweet heart!!

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.
 Sweet Sofia <333
Cake time!

 Present time!

 the girls went all out with the makeup OC got for her b-day gift

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

Ray’s SURPRISE Birthday!

  Saturday May 12th, Ray and I got away to the city to do an all day spa day, dinner, and stay the night in the city with just us two.
We took Bart so we wouldn’t have to worry about a thing! Parking out there can be stressful! While on the Bart train, we enjoyed each others company, and talked about how much we both need this all day spa day. Once we arrived at the city we did what we do best, grabbed some Starbucks! after we walked to where we were staying at, Villa Florence! We got there checked in, went up to our room and got ready to walk to La Belle Spa. 

As soon as we got to the Spa we were in heaven!

They served us lunch <3333´╗┐

After an amazing, much needed spa day, we walked to the mall and did a little looking around and then walked back to our room to relax some more before dinner at Press Club.
What Ray didn’t know was that his family and friends were going to be waiting for us there!
I did not get a picture of Ray when he seen his family and friends, but he was surprised, and you can tell by all the pictures he was very HAPPY!! Happy Birthday, my love!!!!

The rest was history!!

Mine & Ray’s Birthday Celebration

 
On Ray’s birthday the girls and I surprised him at his work with a small chocolate cake. The girls and I love visiting daddy at work, specially when we are surprising him! Ray was so happy to see us! The smile on his face was priceless!
we did just a quick little visit cause he had to get back to work. But, what Ray didn’t know was that I had an even BIGGER surprise during the weekend (posting next time) for him!

The next day was my birthday, and I treated myself to hangout with my sister and girlfriends from morning to evening!
We headed to oh la la crepes, super good! We did some shopping, grabbed some Starbucks, then headed to the pool! It was such a relaxing time hanging out by the pool without having to worry about the little ones.

After  relaxing by the pool, we headed to our favorite spot, under dog at Concannon!

I had the best 27th birthday ever!! Thank you sis for setting this day up, you’re the best!

Tahoe Trip Part III

Christmas Day, after opening presents {here}, we went to Heidi’s restaurant for breakfast, and then we headed to Heavenly in hopes there would be snow for the girls to play in. Tahoe was so dry this year, there was hardly any snow!! I guess last year was the opposite! But we made the best of it, and we ended up having a blast!

 Madison all nice and warm sleeping away.
 LOL! Look how dry! But Ray made the best of it for the girls to have fun…
 Here he is sliding down the hill with Raychel – haha!! LOVE IT!

 Raychel sliding down a small little hill.
 Then we met, Susie! Her mom and dad were so nice, they let them play in their board! Susie also has a younger sister about the same age as Oceana!
 They were sure having a blast! I also got to go down on the board lol!

 

Birthdays, Birthdays and more Birthdays

Last Saturday, we went to Andruw’s 5th birthday! It was so cool!! It was an indoor sports center and we played Andruw’s favorite sport, baseball! Andruw’s favorite team is the SF Giants. He is so good at playing baseball that it would not surprise me if he became pro one day, actually, am sure he will!! The girls had fun for the first half hour, then they were just being girly and wanting to play something else. Sorry… girls, no princesses here- haha! They were good sports though. Same as the hubs… he was actually not feeling to good, but he knew how much I wanted all of us to be at sweet Andruw’s birthday.

The decor was all SF Giants! Christine (Andruw’s mommy) did such a good job with all the party details. She is such a good mom!

Happy 5th Birthday Andruw! <333

 OK, who knows what the heck I was trying to do here -haha… fly maybe?! You can tell I don’t play sports all that much. I love them, but I just don’t play them all that often-hehe.

 My LOVES!

My sister gets Married this SATURDAY!!! I am super excited!!! This past Saturday was my sisters bachelorette party, and it was a blast!
All of Elizabeth’s girlfriends met at our parents house and then from there they all carpooled to San Ramon to get our nails done {I live close to San Ramon so I just met them all there}!

After some fun shopping at Victoria’s Secret, all the girls wanted to head back and freshen up/change before heading to SAN FRANCISCO!
At the parent house, Elizabeth opened up a few gifts the girls had gotten her.

 Then it was off to the CITY!

I was looking up online for a wine tasting place in SF and found the Press Club. It is so nice and classy inside, I had to get all the girls here for Elizabeth’s bachelorette!´╗┐ The manager was so nice too, he treated us all with champagne to celebrate the bachelorette party! {of course I did not have any or wine}
´╗┐

Their appetisers are amazing!!
 and their cheese was delish!!

Heading to dinner at the Seasons
 The menu had all these wordings for the food that we had no clue what they were so Elizabeth took out her cell and started googling what each one meant lol!! It was so funny, we were all laughing. Dinner was so much fun! We gave Elizabeth tips on marriage, and we were remembering all the funniest moments we had with Elizabeth! We were cracking up the whole time at dinner, It was the best ever!

Since it was Elizabeth special day they treated us with some yummy chocolates after dinner.

 After dinner we called it a night and headed back home.
This was such a fun, special day! I can not believe my sister is finally getting married!!! He is a great man, they are going to be very happy together!! Cant wait till SATURDAY!! Priase God!

Dana’s Graduation Party

  Ray’s good friend John, put together a graduation party for  his wife at Barones. It was such a nice time being with friends and celebrating Dana’s BIG accomplishment. She was so happy to have her family and friends celebrate with her all the hard work she has put into school and now finally being done. Her hubby is so sweet to get this party together for her big day.

John and Dana. Isn’t Dana just gorgeous?! I love her dress too! John saying a speech…

Happy Wednesday Every One!

Easter Egg Hunt Feild Trip

  Raychel’s pre-school had a field trip to a nice open park for the kids to have an Easter egg hunt, and of course I tagged along, I couldn’t miss my little one’s first field trip! But… then again… God willing… I will always be involved/tagging along in all of my girls school field trips and activities.

Once we got to the park all the kids enjoyed some free time playing on the playground, then the teachers had games for the kids to play, after they did the Easter egg hunt, and then we all had lunch before heading either back to the school or back home. Raychel is only in pre-school  half days, so after we dropped off one of the teachers back at the school and we headed home.

All the kids had to wear their school t-shirt´╗┐
 Oceana cracks me up! She does not like when people stare at her when she is doing something. I believe it was a man who was looking at her and she did not like it.
 My princesses!

 Raychel was walking so funny, because she did not want to drop the bean bag! She did so good!! Way better then the other kids! lol sorry, she is my baby girl and anything she does will probably be better then the other kids in my eyes ­čśë 

 The egg hunt!

´╗┐daddy and mommy are so very proud of you Raychel! You are so smart!
