Holly, Erika, & I got to have a girls weekend. Last year the boys went on a 4 day hiking adventure and they kept saying that us girls get a weekend away too. Well we FINALLY did it. Since I stopped nursing and before Erika has the baby we had time to go this last weekend. We didn't go far from home but it was a blast! We stayed at the Hilton downtown Salt Lake. We went to dinner Friday night and then the Gateway for some shopping. We were driving all over to find a place to get treats but it was so fun. Then we stayed up late just talking and talking and talking. Then Saturday we got up and talked more, like we don't see each other almost every day as it is! We left the hotel and went to find some yard sales. We found a few and we all scored some great bargains. Then it was off to the temple. We were going to go to the Salt Lake temple but it was closed for cleaning so we went up to the Bountiful temple. However, we saw Ross first and we just had to stop and shop there. We all got a lot of stuff. hehehe Then we went to the temple. That was such a nice experience to be with Erika and Holly in the temple. We have never gone just the 3 of us. After the temple what next you ask, more shopping. We stopped at Kohls and Target then we came home. We got home around 8:30pm. The car was packed full. Not much else could have fit in it. Oh, I forgot my camera so the only photos we have are when we got back. It was so nice to have a little get-a-way. Thanks Sean for the hotel and thanks to our great husbands for the kid free weekend!

We went to the fireworks with Dave, Holly, Holly's parents, Sean, Erika, Erika's parents & siblings, and can't forget all the kids. It was nice. No one was scared. Lili liked them for awhile then couldn't be bothered with them so she was crawling over Papi and the grass (didn't like the grass so she pulled it instead).
Gaby turned 6 years old last week. We had just a family party for her this year. It still was a lot of fun. We also celebrated Vanessa's 1st birthday, Vanessa is Angel's (Enrique's brother) daughter. Abuelito, Abuelita, Tio Angel, Tia Odette, Vanessa all came from Chihuahua for her birthday, then they took Gaby back with them. She will be there for 3 weeks then we will all go and get her. I can't believe she is 6 years old. Happy birthday Sissy!!!
