Our Birthday Party

Just wanted to post some pictures from Christopher's and my Beach Birthday Party. It was tons of fun!! Christopher turned 25, a quarter of a Century (wow, he is getting old :)) and I turned 21 yay!! Finally!! seemed like forever, but people have been telling me that after you're 21, years just go by fast :( I wasn't really wanting that, I just wanted to turn 21 so people wouldn't think I'm crazy for being married. Anyway so here are some pictures from the Beach Party:
Look at us, can you believe that Greg is still taller than me even with my big-huge hat on???!!!

Here we are getting ready to sing happy birthday!!! Aren't we cute :)

This is us after blowing out the candles, it was fun!!

Aww!! We're with our mami!! Too bad Michael had to miss it!! Oh well, which reminds me, Michael sent the funniest card to Christopher for his birthday, it really is just so Michael to do that! It was nice to get a little bit of him at the party!!

Here is the family enjoying the yummy cake!!

Here is a close up of the cake. Can you tell it was a Beach Party :) Halley and I made the little palm trees as party favors, they have little candies inside. Fun!!

Here is the little sign Halley and I made for everyone to know we were celebrating!!

We really had a good time at the party, I must say I missed Michael. Can you tell?? I keep talking about him. We all can't wait until he comes home!! Most likely November 12th so everybody keep your weekend open!!!

28th of July

So we celebrated the 28th of July, Peru's Independence day. It was tons of fun!!! I wish my brother Michael would have been here, oh well that's ok only 3 more months and he'll be home. He will see tons of changes specially two things: I was not engaged when he left and now I've been married for over a year and 2nd my cute little niece wasn't even in the picture and she'll be almost one when Michael comes home :) Yeah that shouldn't be too hard to adjust to :)
Anyway back to business, so we went to dinner at my mom's house and when we got there this is what we found...

She decorated the table with our flag colors!! This year we all really got into it!
Here is a picture of the entire family before we started eating.

Here is us & my parents with the grandkids

As you can see we were all wearing peruvian shirts even the little kids!! This year we really celebrated Peru's Independence Day!!

Time Flies...

I can't believe it's almost the end of summer!!! This summer is sure going by fast. Ok so I know its been a while since we posted so here is an update. On pioneer day we went and watched the parade we left our house at 6:15am and were there at 6:35am, we went that early because my sister-in-law Halley was running the 10K. So here is a picture of Halley and her sister when they were close to the end mark.

This is everybody that went to see the parade with us, also my dad & Halley were there you just can't see them in the picture. I look so mad in this picture, I think its because I'm squinting the sun was in my eyes.

Here is a float my nephew Daniel though was the coolest thing ever.

After the parade we went home relaxed. Then we went to Greg's uncle Kevin's house, he has a pretty good size swimming pool so we decided to get in.

Here is us watching fireworks that same night.

It's august now.

Wow, time sure is flying by. It's been quite a while since last post, although we definitely didn't mean for it to be so long. Back on the 24th, we went to the parade downtown and then that afternoon and evening, we went swimming and had a barbecue at Uncle Kevin's house. This of course wasn't all the celebrating we did that week. We also had the 28th of July celebration which is Peru's independence day. That was neat too. We had another barbecue, but it was peruvian style. Also, we went to our swimming pool for the first time last week. It's not too big, but we are paying for it with our townhome, and it is fun to swim, especially when we go after the sun sets behind the buildings and it is not sunny, but still warm. Awesome.

Eva went to her Stampin' Up! convention pretty much all last week from July 30th, through August 2nd. She was really excited to be with all the women who do Stampin' Up! too, and who want to grow their businesses. Eva has tons of ideas now and things are going really well.
