Here we are! A couple of weeks ago, my 18 month old computer decided to DIE suddenly...
oh the pressure... I never realized how much I depend on a computer... so anyway
I have a new "work" computer and I have been feverishly working away to get it all set up and transfer files, etc... and now I am ready to blog again.
Not only that... but its BLOODY HOT here!
This is an actual picture taken from my car... yuck!
Thats besides the point... this weekend we got to get out of town real quick yay!!
Honey Pie's(HP) mother was having her 70th birthday in Bakersfield and we took the 6 hr. drive to join the family for a birthday party/family reunion
We left at the crack of dawn on Friday morning... for no apparent reason other than my husbie was
very excited... haha.. and drove across the desert.
We got there only to find out that mother was in the hospital :(
She is doing ok now, but spent the whole time we were there in the hospital.
Unfortunately, no party but we did have a great weekend hanging out with the family.
HP and Pops hangin out...
I even got to meet some of Honey's cousins and aunts that I hadn't met yet.
HP took me to Taft, CA to show me the town that he grew up in... it was not much to see, but we did stop by and visit his great grandpa and grandma at the cemetery
As soon as I took that pic my camera died, so unfortunately the rest of the pics are from my cell phone...
My very favorite part of the weekend was seeing HP with all of his nieces and nephews... they ADORE him!
They were all inseparable the entire time, and HP tells me that kids dont like him...tisk tisk
Kierra trying to get HP to stop watching TV and give her some attention... haha
The Santiago kids even managed to lure him into the pool... which I have been trying to do SINCE we met...
Cade, Trinity, and Kyse... oh and the puppy Zeva
Jewel... the craziest kid in the world, but SO adorable!
HP, Trinity, and Jewel..
. (isnt it great that my husbie HATES taking pictures... if looks could kill..)
We had a great weekend, got to see new Baby Damian and even go to cousin Stormy's baby shower.
Home again for another week of work and sweat...
