Mother's Day

We had a Mother's Day dinner at our house. Josh, Dad and Michelle made us waffles. 
 I am so glad I get to be a Mother to Ollie. I love it, if you already didn't know. It is the hardest and most rewarding thing I have ever done. Ollie is so cute and funny. I just love him. I am one lucky lady.  Side note: look at that GREEN grass. I am a yard working machine woman this year and the yard is looking a TON better.

 I am so grateful to have my mom. I love her so much. She does so much for my family and I. She is an example to me of everlasting sacrifice and love.

 I love those flowers.
 A man and his cat.


I LOVE Mexican Food. But it has to be GOOD Mexican food. I feel so deprived of it in Utah. So it's a rarity when I find something GOOD.

One of Josh's co-workers a while back took him to Chunga's for lunch. Josh loved it so he had to take me. It's in Rosepark where a lot of Mexicans live not to different to Chula Vista where I grew up, but it's more like National City if you know what I mean. So it's very legit.

They have a patio to eat on, nothing fancy. I love eating outside when the weather is warm. Outside eating is my most favorite.

I got the Carne Asada Tacos and Josh got the Tacos de Pastor (their signature dish). Both were yummy!

Michelle Turns 26

Michelle's Birthday is the event of the year. I made sure Ollie and I were home on friday so we could party on Saturday. This girl loves her parties. She had a really good turn out because she is so good at making friends.

I have the honor of being in charge of Michelle's Invitation Design needs. 

 One year when I was either away at BYU-I or living in UT she had 70 something people show up. People LOVE Michelle.

 My mom and I made these banners out of tissue paper. They were really easy to make and perfect for her party!

 There was dancing, Mexican Food and singing. Ollie loves to party with his Aunt.

LA Trip: Day 4

 After Disneyland we drove down to Matt and Carrie's to spend the night and next day with them. They were so nice to let us stay and take time out of their busy schedules to hangout with us.

 Ollie was in HEAVEN with his cousins. he fit right in. Carrie said Ollie is the missing baby they never had in between Alex and Kian. Alex was very sweet with Ollie and showed him all the toys and thier pet birds.
 Look at how cute Kian is.

 I love this photo. The scenery and my handsome husband.
 They took us out to lunch at Ruby's Diner at the end of the Huntington Pier. It was a beautiful clear day.
 Ollie stole most of Kians food.

 You can faintly make out Catalina Island just off the tip of the water.

 The whole gang minus Fisher and Tyler who were at school.

 The beautiful water.
 The surfers. It was a treat to watch them.

 I so miss getting lost in thought while staring at the ocean.


The boy cousins sans baby Kian.

We almost didn't catch our flight because Josh accidentally thew away our rental car keys. A lot of prayers were said and they keys were discovered. Luckily it was in Matt's trash can and Josh thought to look there.

Ollie and I flew out of LAX to SLC. It was a bad flight. Ollie was done. I was sitting in a middle seat squished between to men with Ollie on my lap and the diaper bag taking up all of my leg room. The Delta flight attendants were not helpful and were rude. I cried after that. I always try to avoid Delta because they are terrible. Some how we made it through the flight then through the airport, to baggage claim (I had to check my bag at the gate) with a stroller, 1 suitcase and a car seat onto the shuttle and then into my car... oh and an Ollie Boy. Thank goodness Utah is full of helpful people willing to help me out. I had different people all watching and loading all of the things I had. One lady even gave me a water bottle to fill up Ollie's sippy cup because it was empty. another couple even offered to walk me to my car and help me load everything. So much kindness from strangers. I was so grateful.

Josh flew out that night, to Boston and Detroit for a week for more work. It was nice we were able to spend a few days together as a family.

This was a fun and quick trip. I want to have more of these.
