THIS WEEKEND WE WERE GOING TO GO TO THE WILD ANIMAL PARK, BECAUSE WE HAD SOME FREE TICKETS, BUT WHEN WE GOT THERE WE SAW THAT IT WAS GOING TO CLOSE IN A COUPLE OF HOURS, SO WE DECIDED TO JUST KEEP DRIVING UP THE ROAD AND SEE WHERE WE END UP. WELL… THIS WAS FUN…
WE DROVE UP TO A SMALL STATE PARK, IT WAS WHERE A BATTLE WAS FOUGHT, CAN’T REMEMBER THE NAME, SORRY. WE SAW THAT IT WAS TOO SMALL, AND THERE WERE NO BADGES FOR THE KIDS, THE ONLY THING THERE WAS A SMALL HIKING TRAIL, WITH WARNING SIGNS FOR RATTLE SNAKES, SO WE DECIDED TO LEAVE, LOL.
WE KEPT DRIVING UP THE ROAD, AND IT WAS BEAUTIFUL!!! IT WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY, THE MOUNTAINS, THERE WERE WINERIES EVERYWHERE, AND ANIMALS, AND THERE WERE ORANGE GROVES ALL ALONGSIDE OF THE ROAD. WILL, LIKE ALWAYS, THOUGHT HE WAS SPEED RACER AND WAS HAVING FUN ON THE DIPS AND SMALL CURVES, POOR PAPA, GOT CAR SICK 4 TIMES.
WE FINALLY DROVE INTO RAMONA, THERE WAS A RODEO, AND WE WERE GOING TO GO, BUT WE COULDN’T FIND IT, LOL. WILL FOUND A LITTLE FRUIT STAND ON THE CORNER, AND WE WENT, WE BOUGHT A HUGE BOX OF THE FRESHEST RUBY RED STRAWBERRIES I HAVE EVER TASTED, AND OF COURSE, WILL LOVES CHERRIES, SO WE GOT SOME TOO. WE DECIDED TO SAVE ALL OF THE SEEDS SO WE CAN TRY TO PLANTS SOME, OF COURSE THE CHERRY BOX DIDN’T EVEN LAST THE HOUR.
THEN WE DROVE UP AGAIN, AND WOUND UP IN A LITTLE TOWN CALLED SANTA YSABEL, IT HAS A SMALL INDIAN RESERVATION, AND IN THE MAIN MARKET THEY HAD FLIERS THAT THEY HAD JUST OPENED A NEW CASINO, SO WE DECIDED TO GO SEE HOW MUCH THE BUFFET WAS. WOW, THE VIEW WAS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!! THEY LEVELED A WHOLE MOUNTAIN TOP, AND BUILT A SMALL CASINO, ALL AROUND THE CASINO, THERE WAS FLATTENED LAND, WHERE THEY WILL BUILT THE RESORT ONCE THEY HAVE MORE FUNDS. SO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE TO TAKE PICTURES!!! I TOLD WILL FOR HIM TO GO TO THE CASINO AND FIND OUT, AND IN THE MEANTIME I TOLD THE KIDS TO GET OUT OF THE CAR AND GO LOOK WITH ME AND TAKE PICTURES. THE KIDS AND I WERE WALKING ALL ALONG THE MOUNTAIN’S EDGE, AND BELOW, FAR AWAY, YOU CAN SEE THE LAKE, AND MORE MOUNTAINS, IT WAS A SIGHT I WILL NEVER FORGET. WILL CAME OUT OF THE CASINO AND FOUND A CATERPILLAR, AND HE BROUGHT IT OVER TO SHOW THE KIDS, IT JUST MADE THE WHOLE PICTURE MMENT MORE BEAUTIFUL, AND THE DAY MORE SWEET. AFTER WILL PUT THE CATERPILLAR BACK, HE YELLED “LAST ONE TO THE CAR IS A ROTTEN EGG!!” SO WE ALL STARTED RUNNING, I LOOKED BACK AND SAW THAT LILY WAS WALKING, SO I WALKED BACK AND TOLD HER WE WOULD RACE, KIERA AND JOSHUA CAME BACK FOR A SECOND RACE, SO WE RUN, AND I’M BEATING KIERA, SO SHE REACHES OUT FOR MY SHIRT AND PULLS ME DOWN, I STARTED TO FALL AND AS I WAS TRYING TO STAY UP, I FELT AND HEARD 3 LOUS CRACKS ON MY ANKLE! OUCH!!!!!!!! I STARTED CRYING IMMEDIATELY, AND I FELT THE SUDDEN BURNUNG PAIN IN MY FOOT, I WAS CRYING, AND WILL, TRYING TO FIX IT,, KEPT TRYING TO MAKE ME GET UP, I WASN’T GOING TOO, LOL. HE CARRIED ME TO THE CAR AND CAREFULLY TOOK MY SHOE OFF, MY ANKLE WAS TWICE AS BIG NOW, HE WENT TO GET ICE FROM THE CASINO, BUT THE EMT, AND THE CASINO MANAGER CAME OUT WITH HIM, LIABILITY FORMS. THE EMT BANDAGED MY ANKLE AND TOLD ME IT’S SPRAINED AND NOT BROKEN, THAT’S ALWAYS GOOD TO HEAR, LOL. NOT TOO MENTION, THAT WHEN I FIRST FELL, ALL I HEARD OVER MY CRIES, WERE WILL’S HISTERICALL LAUGHS!
WE STARTED TO DRIVE BACK HOME SO I COULD GO TO THE HOSPITAL, BUT I FELT TOO BAD ABOUT ENDING THE KIDS DAY, SO I ASKED WILL TO STOP AT THE FIRST STORE AND GET ME SOME PILLS, I POPPED 2 ADVIL’S AND WE KEPT DRIVING. WE FOUND THE ENTRANCE TO THE PALOMAR OBSERVATORY, SO I GOT EXITED AND WE DROVE UP THE MOUNTAIN, THE SIGN SAID IT HAD CLOSED ABOUT 1/2 HOUR BEFORE, BUT THERE WAS A SCENIC VIEW AREA ON THE SIDE. IT WAS SOOO BEAUTIFULL, I COULDN’T WALK, SO WILL TOOK THE KIDS OUT OF THE VAN AND WENT TO TAKE PICTURES, IT WAS BREATH TAKING!!!
FROM THERE WE WENT TO FIND SOMEWHERE TO EAT BECAUSE THEY WERE ALL STARVING, SO WE FOUND A PIZZA SHOP IN ANOTHER LITTLE TOWN, SO WILL CARRIED ME TO ONE OF THEIR PATIO CHAIRS SO WE COULD EAT OUTSIDE. THAT WAS SWEET HUH? LOL HERE COMES ANOTHER FUNNY THING, SO AFTER WE’RE DONE EATING KEIRA DECIDES THAT WE ARE ALL GOING TO PLAY “DUCK, DUCK, GOOSE”, SO SHE STARTS, THEY ALL PLAY A ROUND AND WHEN JOSHUA HITS GOOSE ON WILL, THEY START CHASING AND RUNNING, AFTER ABOUT 5 MINUTES, WILL MAKES IT TO A CHAIR, AND HE’S RUNNING AND THROWS HIS WEIGHT DOWN ON IT, AND WE ALL HEAR A LOUD “CRACK, CRAK” AND DOWN WENT WILL WITH THE CHAIR, FLAT TO THE FLOOR, HA HA HA, EVERYONE WAS LAUGHING, WILL DIDN’T GET HURT, BUT HE WAS LAUGHING TOO, IT WAS SO FUNNY!!!!!
FROM THERE WE DROVE HOME, GOT PIJAMAS, AND BLANKETS, AND HEADED TO THE DRIVE IN. WE WENT AND BOUGHT 1 BUCKET OF KFC, AND HAD A PICNIC IN THE VAN, WHILE WATCHING SHREK3 AND BLADES OF GLORY.
WE GOT HOME, AND IT WAS A NICE TO JUST SIT!!! WILL CARRIED ME UP THE STAIRS, LOL. IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL FAMILY WEEKEND!

MAY 19, 2007
WELL TODAY WE ALL SLEPT IN, AND GOT UP AND RUSHED OUT OF THE HOUSE.
WE WENT TO THE CABRILLO NATIONAL MONUMENT PARK.
IT’S ON THE NAVAL BASE, IT HAS THE FIRST LIGHTHOUSE, IT’S A HISTORIC PLACE, IT WAS SOO COOL!
WHEN WE GET THERE, THE VOLUNTEER IS DRESSED UP IN CLOTHES FROM THE BEGINNING OF TIME IN SAN DIEGO,
HE TELLS US THAT THERE ARE FORMS FOR THE KIDS TO GO ON A SCAVANGER HUNT WITH, AND WHEN THEY ARE DONE RESEARCHING AND ANSWERING THE QUESTIONS, THEY GET A JUNIOR RANGER BADGE. IT’S A BADGE THAT YOU CAN COLLECT AT EVERY NATIONAL PARK, HISTORIC, OR STATE PARK.
SO WE DECIDED TO SPLIT UP IN 2 TEAMS, THE GIRLS AGAINST THE BOYS.
IT WAS THE GIRLS AND ME, AGAINST JOSHUA, PAPA, AND WILL.
OF COURSE YOU KNOW WHO WON… THE GIRL TEAM!!!!!!
THE KIDS GOT THEIR BADGES, AND A CERTIFICATE.
AFTER THAT, WE WENT TO A CHINESE BUFFET, IT WAS WILL’S IDEA, THE KIDS LIKED IT, IT WAS EITHER THAT, OR DENNY’S WHERE KIDS EAT FREE ON SAT. NIGHTS, THEY VOTED FOR CHINESE, I GUESS THEY’RE TIRED OF DENNY’S, LOL. PAPA AND ANTHONY WE IN LOVE WITH THE WATERMELON, LOL.
FROM THERE WE WERE GOING TO GO HOME, BUT SAW A GOODWILL STORE ON THE WAY, SO WE STOPPED. THERE WERE THOSE LITTLE COUCH-BEDS THAT FOLD OUT FOR KIDS, FOR 9 BUCKS, THEY’RE OVER 40 AT SOME STORES, SO WE GOT THEM 2 SINCE THERE’S NO MORE COUCHES IN THE TOY ROOM.
WE WENT TO HOLLYWOOD VIDEO FROM THERE, AND WE CAME HOME AND HAD A FAMILY NIGHT IN THE LIVING ROOM, WE WATCHED “HAPPILY NEVER AFTER”
TOMORROW, WILL AND I ARE HOPING TO TAKE THE KIDS OUT TO THE WILD ANIMAL PARK, SINCE WE GOT SOME FREE TICKETS FROM OUR MANAGMENT HOUSING OFFICE.

THE WEDDING WAS A LONG DRIVE OUT TO MALIBU, BUT IT WAS WORTH IT, IT WAS BEAUTIFUL!
THAT LITTLE PATCH IN THE BACKOF HIS HEAD LOOKED LIKE HE HAD ISSUES, LOL.
MOM TOOK US TO GO GET IT CUT, AND SHE HELD HIM DOWN, order clomid without rx CAUSE WE KNEW I COULDN’T, LOL.
I JUST TOOK PICTURES, LOOK AT MY POOR BABY CRY!!!
AFTERWARDS HE FELL RIGHT TO SLEEP FROM ALL OF HIS CRYING.
HIS GRAMPA AND DADDY WERE HAPPY WHEN THEY FINALLY SAW HIM.
Well today was a full day!!!!
Last night I was up until almost midnight doing Kiera’s hair, she had cheerleading pictures today.
man, those were expensive, we wrote a check, I hope it goes through.
Her pictures were at 9:30am, We were there since 9am, it was sooo hot today!!!!!! It was already 10:30am and the pictures were still not taken.
At the spur of the moment, we decided to go to Knotts Berry Farm, since it was free for all of us to go, through the veterans/military special they have until the 23rd.
Of course, like always, we got there late, around 1:30pm, it was hot, and very crowded. Each line for the rides was almost an hour or more each, needless to say, we never left the snoopy camp area (childrens section) poor Joshua, he was stuck in the little kids section all day with us.
Despite all of the loooong lines, the kids had a great time, we had a few dollars to play a couple of games each, Kiera was the big prize winner!!!!!!
She went on the Jacob’s ladder, and she won the grand prize. we took pics, she was so proud and exited, Lily won a big bear also, but no where near the size of the other one, lol. Even Anthony got to go on one ride, the rest of the day he was on the stroller.
We never have money or time, but mostly money, lol…to be able to go anywhere, so we all enjoyed this very much!!!!!!
Well today we all wanted to sleep in late, we didn’t get in until after 1am, but I had to get up early and do Lily’s hair for today.
Thanks to the military housing where we live, I entered a lottery drawing, and won a set of family holiday pictures, taken by a professional photographer.
I did Lily’s hair, and we left, it was nice, a park on the harbor. While we waited for our turn, I decided to be the photographer i wanted to be, and I took my own set of pictures….

Well yesterday was a busy day. Will had duty, so he had to leave to work at 6 am. He was back at 8am, Thank God for shore duty, lol. He misses those overnight duty days he says, lol.
We all slept in late, we took the kids to a pumpkin patch event that our managment threw for the families.
It was soooo fun….. they had a costume contest, and the line was so long that by the time we got in, the contest had just ended, and when the judges saw our kids, she sayd that our kids won 1st place, even thought it was over, and went and got the prizes for our kids.
It was so cute, Anthony was a monkey, the girls were snow princesses, and Papa was a little spiderman with muscles, lol.
Tell me they weren’t cute!!!! lol
The kids got a free family pumpkin that Papa got to pick out, it was tiny, lol. they played free games and won candy. They made crafts, sand art, the kids loved it!!! Even Will was having fun making them.
well, I guess that’s all for today.
We didn’t have any money to do anything for him, so we went to a pumpkin patch, he won a little inflatable bat, and his daddy won him a little pony thing, with a stick on it, lol.
We went and bought him a little set of cupcakes and we bought the pumpkins for tomorrow.
Papa loved his birthday, even though he didn’t have a birthday party or big celebration, he enjoyed it sooo much.

well today is Joshua’s 13th Birthday, I can’t believe he’s hit 13 already, i know I know, it’s like it wasn’t that long ago that he was just a baby, I guess I’m getting old, ha ha ha.
Anthony turned 1 yr old on June, Thank God !!!!!!!!!!
Lily turned 4, even though she acts like she’s 23, ha ha ha.
Kiera started first grade this month, she is getting so big, i think she’s going to be taller than me, lol.
Papa will be turning 3 next month, it seems that aall of a sudden they are just growing out of nowhere, lol.
well i guess this is enough for now, i will leave more updates later.

will got a dog a few days ago, we were only supposed to look at the puppy and let the guy know if we wanted her or not, they told me on the phone it was a puppy, and when he showed up, she was humoungous, she’s a 8 month old rottweiler. while i was talking to will that i couldn’t keep her, the guy took off. needless to say we kept her. soon to change my opinion on that. she is too heavy for me to control, and she is very stubborn. she is too rough with the kids, because of the fact that she is just a puppy and very active, she doesn’t know her ow strength. she already knocked me to the floor. wel…. i told will we have to find her a new home.
well today the girls are not here, they left yesterday to their grandmas house, so it’s just me and the boys, surprisingly the house is extremely quiet, i guess cause he doesn’t have anyone to chase and scream at, lol.
