Enrique's Aunt and Uncle from Phoenix came to visit for a couple of days (2 days after my mom left). They got here, relaxed a bit then Dave, Holly & kids came over to see them and for the piñata (from Gaby's b-day we never did). They always have a great time doing the piñatas. Everyone got candy. Then we went inside and Ronnie had a huge bag full of surprises for the kids and everyone got a stuffed animal. Sean, Erika & kids came over the next day to visit. Angel got to hold Cooper. He was hilarious. He didn't move a muscle at all, the entire time he was holding the baby. After Erika took him back, he just let out a huge breathe. It was so funny. After baths, it was time for bed. So we read scriptures and said prayers. Then the kids were off. They really liked reading scriptures with Ronnie and Angel, Isabel specially. She snuggled into Angel to read and of course he let her. Thanks Ronnie & Angel for taking the extra time to spend with us along your vacation. We love you so much!!!
Cooper was born on Tuesday, August 24, 2010. He weighed 7 pounds even & 20 inches long. I got to hold him a few days after. I can't believe Lili was just that size, almost, 9 months ago. That is crazy to me. Cooper is so sweet and precious. I am so grateful to be living near my brothers, especially for times like these. Congratulations!!
Gaby is in 1st grade this year. Grandma was here so she walked her to school with us and got to see her class room. Gaby was super excited. She came home from school, put her backpack on the floor by the couch, falls onto the couch backwards and says, "I'm exhausted!" I just laughed and asked her why. She said, "Because I was at school all day and I had 3 recesses!"
My mom, step-dad, & 2 little brothers came out for a visit. It was so great to see them. They got here the day before my dad left. So we all got together at the park and had a blast. The day after mom came we all went to Hollywood Connections, a fun center place down in West Valley. We were there for 6 hours having fun and letting the kids lead the way. It has rides, arcades, mini golf, and more. We did the rides most of the time we were there. My personal favorite was the bumper cars, if that's what they are called. It was so easy to do even all the little kids got to do it as well. Addie, my niece, just turned 2, and she was able to do these bumper cars by herself. Mind you, we had 15 people in our party so we dominated everything there was to do. So we were the only ones on the bumper cars. We also went to a Bees Game. It was fun. We got to see the best fireworks we've ever seen there. They were awesome that night. Isabel decided to get attached to mom & Kenny. She was glued to mom and then to Kenny. My mom and Kenny got have been married 6 years now. He is great with the kids and they love him. The rest of the photos are just hanging around the house and having fun spending time all together. Thanks for coming out here. We love you all tons!
