Every holiday is so special ever since we’ve had kids. You get to experience it all over again through their eyes.  Their excitement, smiles, and anticipation just warms my heart.  Here’s my darling Mary Poppins and my heroic Batman. Counting the candy loot! Advertisements

Camp Oaks

Tucked away near the Anaheim Golf Course is a park I never knew existed…  Oak Canyon. It’s full of beautiful oak trees and 3 easy hiking trails. Cadiz went to a week long Nature Camp with 2 of her school buddies.  They learned about nature, made crafts, and went on the trails.  The kids even performed in front of the parents.

  “Mi Corazon is tu Corazon” is what my Valentine use to say to me when we were dating.  I’ve accepted that he now shares his heart with someone else… My cutie pie. But I too have someone else to share my heart with…My little man.
