Not much...

to tell about our Utah trip...
Anaïs' appt with her neurosurgeon went well. He just said to come back in 6 months to monitor her sleep apnea and make sure that she doesn't start having spinal compression issues again.
We go back in a week and a half (yes, AGAIN!!) because she has an appt with an ENT to talk about ear tubes and taking her adenoids out. I suspect that she has an ear infection again... she has been kind of fussy lately and doesn't sleep as well, I will probably take her to her pediatrician tomorrow.
Anyway, that's pretty much it.

That's it!!!

I want to live by the beach!!!! LOL

We went to California this weekend and I didn't want to leave!!! I love going there, Jeff's mom has a really nice condo there and I just love the area, it is just beautiful! We had a really fun and busy week end! We were lucky because the weather was absolutely beautiful! On the first day, we decided to go to the beach. We went to Crystal Cove, in Newport Beach. We went to Trader Joe's and bought food to have a little picnic on the just doesn't get any better than that!
Sam was so excited. Her new thing is to say "I'm dancing the Cha-Cha because I'm so excited!" LOL!! This is her dancing the Cha-Cha!!! I swear it is IMPOSSIBLE to be bored around her, she is just too funny!
Anaïs loved hanging out on the towel, she was really good!

After the beach, we went back to the condo to shower and rest a little.
Jeff's sisters went to Disneyland a couple weeks ago and bought a 3 day pass but only used it for 2 days so she gave us 3 tickets for Disneyland. We were not planning on going there, but how could we not???? Free Disneyland tickets? You just don't turn that down. It was so nice of them to do that!!
So we didn't tell Sam and just told her that we had a surprise for her and that we were going to spend the evening at a very special place. Needless to say that when she saw we were going to Disneyland she was SO excited!!!! We were there from around 6:00PM to 10:00PM. It was great!

Anaïs' first ride was Roger was a little rougher than we remembered! LOL
But she enjoyed it!
Sam and I went on the spinning tea cups, I was so dizzy after I hard a hard time walking for 10 minutes!
After, we even got to see the fireworks. It was such a fun night!
Then, on Saturday we went to the LPA BBQ. We had a wonderful time! We feel very lucky to be a part of such a wonderful and welcoming group! Since our chapter here in Vegas is just getting started, we have been trying to attend events in CA since we have a place to stay there. Everybody there has been so nice to us!! We have met amazing people! I want to say a special thank you to Mike who always makes sure to include us in all the events!
The kids had a great time too! Sam played non stop and we barely saw her throughout the day.

On our last day, we just could not go home without going to the beach one last time. We went to Laguna beautiful!

What a fun weekend...can't wait to do it again!!!!

Our Easter week end

A couple days ago, the girls and I went to a friend's house for a little Easter egg hunt. Sam had a lot of fun while Anaïs enjoyed looking at all the kids running around.

Last night, we went out with some of our friends to celebrate a friend's birthday. We went to dinner at a brazilian steakhouse and then we headed to Martini's, a local bar, for some drinks. Jeff and I hadn't gone out in a while so it felt really nice to get a babysitter and get out a bit.

This morning, when we got up we saw that the Easter Bunny had left some surprises in the backyard for Sam and Anaïs!! ;)

Anaïs got a cute little bunny. She loves stuffed animals.
Sam loved looking for eggs that were hidden all over the backyard. I can't wait for next year so Anaïs can be a little more involved in the whole process.

Sam got a chocolate bunny, a new plate with a matching cup and some Hello Kitty underwear...and TONS of candy hidden in all those eggs.

Later in the day, Sam did some painting while Anaïs took her nap. She loves doing any kind of artwork and never gets tired of it!

Then, the weather was so nice today that we decided to go to the pool. It was the first time this year! The water was pretty cold though so we decided it was probably better to keep Anaïs out of the water.

That's it...that was our week-end.
We leave for California on Thursday. We are planning on going to the beach on Friday and to a LPA BBQ on Saturday, it should be a fun week-end!
