Happy Father's Day to my amazing dad, aka PaPa Ed. The kids are thrilled to spend the day with you. We appreciate your love and constant support even from afar.
And of course we are also wishing a Happy Father's Day to my kids super hard working dad who didn't get to travel with us this year as he's working. We miss him but send our love to him and PaPa KiKi back in sunny San Diego.
So much love in our family and it never gets old! Dads rock!!
Happy Fathers Day

I learned to sew when I was about 8 as I best recall. I can remember getting frustrated with patterns and perfection as I just wanted to wing it, which didn't always turn out well. I can remember saying, "Why would I ever need to know how to sew anyways?!"
Well today I am thankful that my mom Betti, my grandmother and my great aunt persisted and taught me to enjoy sewing. My aunt passed away just over a year ago, but I inherited her sewing machine which means so much to me. It helps carry on her memory every time I use it. Yesterday Callie needed her American girl doll clothes taken in. We buy preemie and newborn used clothes then make them fit her doll. I also had this scrap bottom of a onesie which I made into a Barbie jacket with buttons! Callie had no faith in my clever idea but loved how it turned out!
So this one is for you Aunt Charleen, I hope you are smiling down on me from up above!

We are celebrating the kids birthdays with a weekend at Disneyland. We spent time in the water park at the hotel the first day and then went to California adventure for day 2. One more day left for some fun shenanigans!!

Happy Mothers Day! My two munchkins are my world even when they are difficult at times. I would trade them for anything even though the job of a mom is not easy and never ending. It makes me appreciate my mom so much more than I ever knew before I was a mom. Only two days til my fabulous mom arrives for her next visit! Can't wait to see you.

And I'm lucky enough to have an amazing mother in law nearby who is always helpful and tended to my sick kids this week. I can't be thankful enough for my kids and all the amazing moms in my life!

Caught red handed!!! Seriously teachers somehow pull off these adorable handprint arts but it's not as easy as it looks. Also a piece of advice use washable paint! What was I thinking?!

When rain makes you cancel your Disneyland trip you just have fun with PaPa Ed at home. He kids sure don't care, they just want time with PaPa.

Happy Birthday to my baby who turned 3 today! Diego chose breakfast for dinner (pancakes and bacon) and ice cream sandwiches instead of cake. But hey when you know what you like.... that and Spiderman!
Love you D man and your gentle sweet soul. Wishing you an awesome year!

Happy st Patrick's day from the Wild Animal Park

Spent our St Patrick's Day at the Wild Animal Park feeding the butterflies 🦋 and lorikeets 🐦. Our last day with GiJu Betti was a wild one! My favorite photo is Callie being startled by the butterfly landing on her chest. I'm so glad I captured it!
