trrying to catch up


Here are some highlights from our life.

Ashlynn's softball team - awsome coach - ashlynn's got good skills!


Over spring break, I drove the kids to Vegas and Brian met up with us a day later. Vegas- 3 kids- one parent - quite interesting. Here's the kids at the Venetian. Ty screamed and threw a tantrum during the ENTIRE gondola ride. The nice fake Italian man tried so hard to act normal and tell his fake Italian stories and sing to us. I just plastered on my "I love being a mom" fake smile and promptly got Ty some gelato to quiet him down after the ride. The kids really liked the guy pretending to be a statue. Ashlynn drew him pictures and wrote him notes like, "you are good" and put them in his tip pile. He gave her a subtle thumbs up sign.

Looks like they enjoyed it. It's hard when you have to be a mom alone. I don't know how single parents do it. What a fun little vaca.

How come Ashlynn has her eyes closed on all her pictures lately! Tell her Grma said that her eyes are to beautiful to hide!

Fun! My kids favorite part of Vegas was swimming, too. We're getting $20 passes to the San Jose public pool this year. 10 min. drive as opposed to 9 hours.

Juls and I went to Vegas a couple of years ago and mistakenly thought that the Pirate Show at Treasure Island was going to be a "Family Show", you know, being outdoors and all. Well, enough said, it wasn't, and we wrote some formal complaints. I think Juls and I are more happy with visiting other places from now on. For us, going to Vegas once, was one time too many.

The pools were always the highlights of vacations like this for us kids. What a troopper for taking all 3 kids on all of these trips by yourself.
