Going to jail

With it being summer vacation for the kids, they have had to come up with some was to be entertained. They only get to watch an hour of tv and that goes by pretty fast for them. In the afternoons we head over to my moms to go swimming. So with no game boy or wii, they have had to really use their imagination. Last week they made cars out of cardboard boxes, the took more card board boxes and put on a puppet show. But yesterday takes the cake. Josephs wanted to be inmates. He said we were all going to jail, and we needed to take our mug shot. Joseph told us that we needed to look mean. I tried, but what he was having us do, I just kept laughing...."Mama', no, you need to look real mean." Here's how they turned out. Tough guy Joseph


Crazy girl Sophie

New York Dustin

and me trying as hard as I can not to crack a smile!
I love how they are coming up with things to keep them busy.

SuMmEr TiMe

Seems like we head to my moms almost everyday to go swimming. Its not been too hot, but its getting there. I don't look forward to the 100's at all, so these 80's can stay as long as they want. Joseph loves to run and jump into the pool.....we just need to loose the life jacket!

He also like to walk under the water.

Poor joely is scared of the water, so he hasn't gotten in this year.....yet.

Princess Sophia loves the water.

Finally life jacket off!!!!!!!!

My Little Antonio

Here is my little Antonio. He just graduated from Las Plumas last night. We had a dinner in his honor and it was wonderful. I went over earlier in the day to help my aunt Raquel clean up and get everything ready for all of the company who were to come over. Just driving over to the house I got teary eyed. I couldn't believe how the time has gone by so fast. It doesn't seem that long ago when I would be over at the house babysitting. I was there almost every day. Antonio had gotten so used to me being there that when I had to leave, oh how he would cry. We lived right down the street, and when I would walk home, Antonio would be a the screen door crying for me to come back. And who could forget when Antonio was about 18 months old in the car with his mom. He was crying for some reason, and my mom and I happen to drive up right next to them. Antonio saw me and quickly stopped crying and started smiling. And now toady, he had graduated from high school. I have a special place in my heart for Antonio, and wish him the best in what he had ahead of him. Congratulations Tonio, Te amo mucho!!

Nerdy Basketball

I really don't want to post this pic, but I told Rae I would. Every Thursday night a bunch of us girls get together and play basketball at the church. We say its a nice break, so we can just be ourselves.....this night we weren't totally ourselves. We decided to dress up like nerds. We had fun being dorky, however I did have to take the suspenders off half way through the night.
