Well, here we are in May!! I cannot believe we are almost half way through the year! I don't remember time goes this fast when I was young...wow! Anyway, we've been pretty busy. We started out March with me taking a little getaway trip to Hawaii by myself. Rick surprised me and set it all up. I stayed with our friends the Kamauus. They live on the North Shore, Oahu. It was a fun trip, even though I loved getting away, I do enjoy taking vacations with my husband. He was awesome, and took care of everything while I was gone. When I got back we started spring soccer season, all 3 kids are in soccer so we've been having soccer games Saturdays, Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays with practice the other days and in between....it's been crazy. The weather has not been very supportive either, it was cold all of March, and April was very rainy. We are hoping for some warm weather soon. In April we had spring break and we went to California to visit my brother and his family and to be there for my youngest nephew's birthday party. The weather was nice, but not as nice as we had hoped. When we got to California, first thing the kids wanted to do was go to the beach, so we went to Laguna Beach. My crazy kids got their bathing suits on and ran into the water....it was only about 65 degrees but they didn't care. Roman however, did not think the ocean was that exciting. He wanted to stay away from the water and just play on the sand. Samuel's birthday party was at the Zoo, we had a blast....except for when Roman disappeared on us for about 5 minutes, but it seemed like forever to me! I found him running by the monkey cages! He is not scared at all of being away from us, he is very independent. We spent Easter in California also, we had lots of fun with the kids Easter egg hunting. We also got to experience an earthquake while we were in California....that was exciting and scary, first time my kids felt an earthquake. We finished off April with soccer games, Wrestling Banquet, and some birthdays. We kicked off May by celebrating Roman's 2nd birthday, on May 1st. Roman shares his birthday with uncle Leandro, we celebrated at Boondocks fun center. Roman loves cars, so we got some Cars balloons and everyone gave him cars as gifts. He is in heaven! He has not stopped playing with his cars since his birthday.
