We met up with a few members of the Schwartz family for a build day at Home Depot. Connor was excited to get to build some wooden projects with his buddy Kyle.




Aliciana was lucky to get to go to the dairy farm with the kindergarten classes. The kids got to see how the cows take a shower and get milked, pet some farm animals, and play on lots of activity stations. Rolling down the giant pile of cotton seeds seems to have been a big hit.

It was a super long but fun packed day at Disneyland. We were there from 8:30am until 11:45pm… over 15 hours! We were able to get on tons of rides by making great use of the fast pass system.

Gavin’s mind was blown by Hyperspace Mountain but Connor was not a fan, although he enjoyed all the other rides. Gavin also got to go on Big Thunder Mountain twice in a row, using his brother’s fast pass and his own. He is becoming quite a fan of roller coasters.


Gavin wanted to hang out at Legoland for the day before his birthday, since this year his actual birthday is shared with Easter. After having fun on all the rides, we went to have a birthday dinner at the nearby Pizza Port for his favorite meal – pizza!


Gavin got to share his birthday this year with Easter. We spent the day at his Grandpa and Grandma Loera’s house.

All the kiddos painted and hunted easter eggs, had fun playing with Papi and Reina’s dogs, and generally having a noisy, chaos filled time. Gavin got to have pizza again to go along with his birthday cake.

I can’t believe my little “Bub Bub” is 9 years old already! He has grown into an amazing (not so) little boy.
