Muir Woods and Stinson Beach

Dustin randomly had a day off on a weekend, which rarely happens, unless he requests for it off, so we decided to go on a little trip to Muir Woods and Stinson beach with some friends.

First we headed to Muir Woods.  Our family before going into the woods

I loved being in the trees and walking through the forest

After going through the trails the kids started getting hungry so we decided to head over to the beach for our picnic and to play on the beach

While the BBQ was warming up Dustin and Nick played baseball


And we played with Dylan


Then while the food was cooking we decided to take the kids to the beach for a bit.  The water was freezing, but the kids didn’t seem to mind.


Finally we ate and just hung out, relaxing till the kids started getting tired


Once the wind started picking up and the weather got cold we packed up and headed home.  It was a fun day out with our little family and our friends and the kids can’t wait to do it again soon =)


11 years together <3

Today Dustin and I celebrate 11 years of being together ❤  We’ve had a lot of ups and downs, but I’m so thankful for everything we have today!  Ever since we had kids our anniversaries don’t really get celebrated anymore =(  But as long as we are together that is all that matters.  Today we took Nick to his sparring tournament in Albany then celebrated my little brother Jaime’s 14th Birthday

Here we are exactly 11 years ago on March 10, 2001, this was at Jaime’s 3rd birthday party =)

I’m back!!!!

My parents bought me a new laptop for Christmas so now I can blog again!!!  Ever since our other laptop broke, I’ve only been able to use Dustin’s notebook which was way too small for my liking =/  But YAY I’m so excited to start blogging again and keeping everyone updated on our family =)  New posts will be coming soon along with info and pictures of our new baby Connor Matthew!!!


I know that I haven’t blogged since December, but I’ve been busy, busy, busy!  Also, my computer was out of commission for awhile cause it wasn’t working and we finally got it fixed and got a new plug for our laptop too!  I’m hoping that I can catch up by tonight (maybe tomorrow) and then I will keep up with it again 😉  I have lots to catch up on!  Christmas, New Years, Birthdays and visits from family!

Sorry I’m so behind!

Sorry for lagging on these posts, but I’ve been soooo busy with the girls being in school.  Then Nick, Dustin and Ari got the swine flu.  Then I was busy planning our 3rd annual Halloween party and now Ari is sick again :/  Hopefully she won’t pass her sickness to the other kids so i can have some time to catch up with this blogging!

And something new that is going to be happening to this blog is that Arianna is going to write posts as well from now on whenever she feels like writing.  She has a journal that she always writes in so I asked her if she wanted to write in our family blog as well and she got really excited about it.  Also I won’t be editing her posts so some of her words will probably be misspelled since she sounds everything out and usually doesn’t ask for help.  I hope you will enjoy the new addition by her 😀
