I went to Disney with Dieguito!!

Tito, Karsen and Dieguito came to Florida. We were very happy they came. They had plan a trip to Orlando and invited us to go with them. It was great to get away and I really enjoyed a few truly off days! I love Dieguito and I really appreciated the opportunity to spoil him a little! He is so much fun to have around. And I was again very impressed by the way my children and their spouses are raising their children. I could see how Karsen and Tito always put Dieguito and his needs above their own. We had a very good time with all of them!

A quick trip to Utah

Since our three married children and their families were in Utah for the Summer, we decided to go visit them just from July 8th. to July 13th. to be able to spend time with all three grandbabies - and their parents, of course! Nick, Titi and Reggie were spending a couple months there for Nicks internship. It is so nice to have them living withing an hour of each other.

I realize I need to get better at taking pictures! I always have my camera with me, but I get so busy with them that I forget to take the pictures! Thank goodness Karsen, Titi and Raqui are always ready with their cameras and they always share with me!

While in Utah we were able to go to the Temple with almost everybody. We also celebrated Tito's birthday with a dinner (He turned 26!) and were able to visit with my nephew (I love him as if he were my son!) Billito, his wife Allison, and their adorable children, 'Balito' and new borned Clarita. We love our family and are so grateful to be able to travel to see them!

Princess Leah arrived!

I was able to go to Hawaii for the birth of Leah Raquel. She was borned while I was flying from LA to Hawaii. Perfect timing! Nick picked me up from the airport and we went straight to the hospital. I guess history repeats, because that's exactly what happened with the birth of Reggie: I went from the airport to the hospital! Little Leah was just one ounce short of six pounds! She had lots of hair! What a joy to have a little princess joined the family!
One month old now, and no longer 5 lbs. 15 ounces.

Oscar joined me in Hawaii two weeks later. We had such a great time! We "discovered" a place called "Kahuku Grill" We liked it so much, specially their 'banana bread sunday' that in ten days we ate there at least six times!!

We stayed in a nice hotel and Reggie loved visiting us there and swimming with us in the hotel pools and at the beach!

Reggie of course grew so much the days right after Leah's birth! He was not so sure how to react to the fact that now Leah is part of the family, but he really tries hard to be extra nice to her!
He cracks up when we take her from him! Funny boy.
