Zoo pics

These pictures are from our trip to the Los Angeles Zoo last August. While Gerardo was in training in Long Beach, the kids & I took a trip to the zoo. I was really fun, it was pretty hot. And we were super tired out from a lot of walking!
Princess Lilly looking pretty as usual!
Jacob & Lilly in front of the flamingos.

Aaron was right up against the glass & this HUGE gorilla was right on the other side. He wasn't scared at all until the gorilla turned around & looked right at him...then Aaron jumped down & screamed...I don't have pictures of that because I had to drop my camera to grab him before he had a heart attack..lolol!

Jackie's Quince

Okay, okay, so I'm behind about 3 months...but better late than never right? I finally got the pics of Jackie's Quince up on Phanfare. A lot of the pics were not in focus or were really dark, so I did my best to fix them up. I'll blame the camera...not the tequila!!!

So, we've been crazy-busy lately & we feel so out of touch with our friends & family! But it seems like so much has been happening in our lives lately, it's hard to even catch a breath! We have been enjoying some of these early spring-like days & playing outside w/ the kiddos.

If some of you did not know we officially became foster parents last week & got two foster children in our home. A 4 1/2 yr old girl that is bff's with Lilly & a 10 mo old boy that Aaron is...well, let's just say...uh, not too fond of...hmm, we have to work on some!

This first week with 5 kids has really run me ragged! I almost threw in the towel! But, as the week went on & I got into a routine, it has been getting better & better. Hopefully things will continue to go good!

Gerardo is moving out of the house that he has been renting a room in. If you all haven't heard, there has been major drama at that house that could really cost him his career if things get more out of hand. But Thank God, he has found another place to rent a room, and it's with another Deputy from his department so it should work out! I'm so happy for this change for him.

G bought me an early Valentine's Day present & so these pictures were taken w/ my new Nikon CoolPix camera! Thank you you! He even got me a pink one...he's so j/k!! We have officially paid off the Honda...and G called me from the bank to tell me that for the first time in his life he actually OWNS a vehicle!!! But the best part is NO MORE $400/month car payments for that car!! Yeah!!

Lilly and Aaron have been so much fun lately. Lilly just comes up w/ so many funny things, her little mind is just totally amazing. I LOVE to just sit and have conversations with her, actual conversations about all the little things that are important to her, like My Little Pony's!
Aaron is sooooo bad!!! He is a total boy!!! All dirt and bugs and being mean!! He is really keeping us busy, so busy, so busy, I can't even explain what a handful this boy is!! And he talks sooooo much. He has a huge vocabulary, I believe it's because of Lilly and Jacob, he mimics them all the time, he pretty much copies every word that they say, it's really cute. He's started putting 2-3 word combos together, which is amazing..except that the combos are "Let Go!", "It's MINE", & "Let Me Go"...among others that are equally bad...did I mention that he's a handful???
