My girls love playing in the rain.  While we were in Chihuahua, I bought new umbrellas, so they had to try them out.  They were out there for some time before it started thundering.

Isabel's Final Preschool Program

Isabel did great in her final program.  It was all about kids world and how kids are people too.  It was really cute and then at the end there was a nice video they put together.  

Mrs. Kay Lynn, Palmira, James, Isabel, Ruby, Mrs. Hodson
These are her teachers and her friends we carpool with every week from our neighborhood.

Center Piece

I came home from somewhere quick because I didn't have the baby.  I came home and couldn't find him.  The Enrique asked me if I liked our new center piece on the table.  I was trying to find the baby and not look at his new center piece, hahaha.  Then I found him, just chillin' in the bumbo chair on top of the table.  It was pretty funny.  He is such a sweet little one.

Last Game

Today was Isabel's last soccer game.  She was also awarded a very nice medal.  She was very excited.  She had so much fun playing and she was really good.

Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day!  Today was so nice.  The kids brought me their cards and gifts they made at school.  Then they gave me their gift from the family, which was the sewing/embroidering machine I've been drooling over for a very long time.  They made a super yummy breakfast too.  We went to church and then after we got together at Sean's house for Colbie's blessing.  They blessed her at their house.  It was so nice.  Then we took tons of photos. 
It was great having my mom here.  We haven't been with her on Mother's Day for a really long time.  Her trip was too short but it was great spending time with her.  Thanks for coming mom.  We love you!!!!

Baby Animal Days

Today we got together in the afternoon and went to Baby Animal Days.  The kids loved it.  They had so much fun.  Dave and his family had been there a while before we got there and Sean's family.  The kids just had a blast.

Gaby loves rock climbing.  I was surprised Isabel wanted to try. 
She got up about 1/3 and got to scared and came back down.

Gaby kept going....

Lili rode the train all by herself while the
 big girls were rock climbing.

I couldn't believe she did it by herself.

She loved it and wanted to do it more.

Grandma came out for Mother's Day.  She got here today and the kids went crazy.  I picked her up.  I had Isabel, Lili and Mateo with me.  I told them we were going to pick someone up at the airport that they knew who it was but I wasn't telling.  It was killing Isabel.  She kept asking who it was and finally she saw Grandma.  She screamed and ran over to her.  We came back to our house just in time to meet Gaby when she got home from school.  Grandma ducked down in the front seat and I called Gaby to the van because we got her a surprise.  Then Grandma popped up.  She screamed even louder than Isabel and couldn't get to her fast enough.  Then a few minutes later, Holly and Erika got here with the rest of the kids.  They all were wanting Grandma's attention and she was loving it.

Later that night, we went to Jacob Webber's wedding reception.  It was beautiful.  It was great to see the Webbers.  It was neat too because Jake and Meagan both were telling me different stories from when I would babysit them while Mark and Marcia were out of town and how much it meant to them to have me as part of their family and a good big sister example.  It was a nice evening.  The kids had a blast, all 10 of them dominated the dance floor for some time, it was so fun to watch them all dancing together.
