so my neighbor scraps too

and we took a class together! for me, it was more of a chance to leave diego with a sitter--he needs to be "left" more often and i still don't do that too much. but anyway... it was so much fun! only a few girls took the class and they all knew my neighbor. lots of chatting!

job update... ugh... lol... i interview for two. one i declined... not for me. and the other they went with another teacher-it's okay, i'm cool. lol! i really want K-5 not middle/high right now and that seems to be the only openings. part of me thinks, oh well, i have plan B. very true... i have a plan B. but then, i would love to be able to go to work too. there are things i need to do for myself. is that selfish? no. i think each person needs to decide what he or she needs to do. we all have our own life paths.
oh well... what is meant to be will be.

a camping we will go... or went...

pismo was a blast! we always have a blast in pismo. we went camping--whew! camping with a toddler is WORK!!! there were a lot of boys there, my brother and his wife and their 4 boys all came along as well as the kids of my cousins. everywhere you looked, there was a little boy! hee hee hee.
diego was thrilled with the ocean. he spotted it and never stopped running. if you have ever had the chance to run in sand--well, it's not that easy. but he ran the whole way! and when he hit the water, he KEPT GOING!!! LOL! i expected the water to hit and for diego to just spin around and take off running away from the water. ooooohhh noooo, i had to run in after but he was so happy splashing around, we stayed for at least 30 minutes (it was FREEZING!!!)
cesar was such a boy... LOL! he had a great time as well...
we did stop at the emu farm and fed the birds. diego was impressed with the feeding pans and the way the birds just came over and pecked the food. they're very sweet. we even tried out ostrich jerky... ehhh... not so much...

i was glad to be home after the trip--whew! it was nice but i'm looking forward to some quiet time with diego before we send him to preschool (yeah, that means i'm looking for a job). i think it's time. he's an only child and he needs KIDS!!! i'm okay with it now--at first i was freaked out but there are things a mom knows--this is know--he's ready.

staycation con't...

we had a blast at sea world--just haven't scrapped the pics yet... here's my favorite of the day:

oh yes... that's a whale! the trip was fab! and it was soooo good to see kathy! i love her! the following day we went to old town SD and i LOVED it! i loved it last time but i LOVED it again this time!

we watched the fireworks in TO--made it home in time. but of course... there was a fire! it wouldn't be california without a fire! it's a bad photo but you can see where the fire is burning... the right, that fire is the FIRE. the fireworks were great! diego loved them!
i did a few layouts this weekend. not so happy with this first... one of those "love the paper, love the photo but something just didn't go right types of moments."

i love this one with sterling and diego in the ten dollar tug boat!

awwwww... that bear! diego thought the bear on the chair was the funniest thing ever! his sense of humor is soooo developing! he's so funny--now that he knows what is right and wrong, bears sitting in chairs or taking a ride on the fan just cracks him up!

we also got a new pool for the kid...

overall it was a nice week of just having time off!

oh yes, i must add--twins are leaving us this week! yah! it's been nice but i'm ready to have just some mommy and diego time again!

old mac donald had a farm... {staycation}

so the staycation is going well. cesar is off work for the week and we are doing stuff around town that we never stopped to do before. lots of cool parks here in 1000 oaks! yesterday we almost drove over to the LA zoo but then we decided to head over to underwood farms. very cool little place even if it's a tourist trap! hee hee hee... diego loved it! he was so excited to see all the animals and feed them.

it was a first pony ride for diego! look at that smile... awww... i love that kid! he was totally brave and just pet the pony while riding. he's getting sooo tall! stop growing diego! LOL!

since i'm on vacation too--i have done a little scrapping. i finally called my arizona book done and moved it into the mini book pile. for a mini, it's not that little. it was a stressful really. i thought the size would be fun but it really wasn't. it's too big to be quick and dirty but too small to really embellish it overboard! oh well, lesson learned... nothing bigger than 8 inches for a mini book--at least for me---at least for now.

did a quick and dirty layout of billie joe. ahhh... i can dream of him all night! he's so cute. i just love him. ya know, i love joaquin too and i've never done a layout of him! oooh that's a bad girlfriend--never never made a JP layout! and he's soooo hot in walk the line--even if i don't like country. oh wait, this is about billie joe isn't it... LOL!

have a blessed 4th! we're leaving for sea world in the morning and we won't be back until the 5th. so excited to see best friend/godmother kathy in sea world! she's flying down from oakland to spend the holiday with us! yeah, friends like her ROCK hard!
