Before we sent the kids back to school, we took a short trip to Monterey. Adam was graduated from Monterey High, brought back memories. Ariel had so much fun collecting rocks. Fun fact about Ariel, she loves rocks.
When I have the opportunity or to be frank when I have the time, I will add a slide show instead. There are lots of pictures we took of our spring break and camping trip.
First camp for this year.

My Mother May 2, 2009
My poor mother is currently in the hospital. Both of her kidneys failed, she is on a permanent dialysis. Please keep her in your prayers.
Never to old to have a visit from Easter Bunny.
Duck Clam or also known as Gooey-Duck3/18/09
The clams are unique because of the length of their necks - which enables them to burrow so deeply. The geoduck's sweet flavor and crunchy texture itself best when the clam is eaten either raw in sushi or sashimi. A lot of work but very rewarding.
Isn't she cute? She is such a good girl. For 2 and a half hours she let me shaved her hair. The first time I took her to get groom, it cost $70. Since then I decided to just do it myself for free.

When Macy is alone at home, she gets on my couch and chills. As soon as the front door opens, she jumps off. She is very sneaky. She wouldn't lay on there if one of us is at home.

Family Fun Night
On Dec. 1st we walked around downtown San Jose. The whole block was decorated as Santa Village. It was beautiful. There, the kids enjoy fresh, hot and yummy mini waffles and crepe. We also went outdoor ice skating. We had a lot of fun.

My sister-in-law gave me a sewing machine for Christmas. Now I need to learn how to sew101. Help wanted! Adam had an early Christmas present, PS 3. You are never too old to play video games. Just ask Adam.
First time ice skater and already a pro. It helped when you can roller blade. Anthony was racing through the ring like he had done it for years. That was me and Ariel from behind. As you can see we were hanging to the edges. However, we did not fall once.
Anthony first over night camp out with the Boy Scout.
Ariel was baptized and what a wonderful experience. Happy day for Ariel.
Time enjoyed with family. We ate and ate.
