It's Been Too Long ...

Giggling to myself as I read the date of my last blog update.
It's been one year, almost to the date since I blogged. Whoops.
My favorite blogs have inspired me to return.

Back in May, we traveled to Las Vegas for my cousin Michael's wedding. It was so much fun to see my family.
I love my cousins. We are a crazy fun bunch!

Eric & Jacob have been busy swimming again for the Catalina Terrace Marlins.
Chris & I are always in awe of their athleticism and drive to constantly improve their skills.
The most wonderful change since last summer is that Michael has recently learned how to swim.
We can't get him out of the water.

At the end of June, we decided last minute to head north up to Phoenix to catch some Inter League play between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the New York Yankees. It was a great little trip. We got to the stadium early to watch the Yankees stretch and warm up. The boys scored an autograph from Yankee pitcher Joba Chamberlain too!

We also staycationed this last weeked at the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort. Making Memories Unforgettable hosted it's annual Scrapbook retreat. It was double fun for me as I was able to craft AND spend time with my family by the pool.
Chris & I were able to hang out both Friday and Saturday late night. What kind of food lover would I be if I didn't share a photo of one the appetizers Chris ordered? They were Sliders + Bacon + Pico de Gallo. A winning combination, if you ask me. I tried the chicken and nopal salsa tacos. Nopales are cactus. And they are delicious. Sadly, I devoured them before remembering to snap a photo.

One of my personal highlights of the Staycation/Scrapbook Retreat was that I completed *ELEVEN* 12x12 scrapbook pages! It was exhilarating to scrapbook some of my very favorite photos over the last year. Just for fun. Just for me. It's a cloudy evening here, so I will wait for better light to photograph my pages to share. Stay tuned crafty friends!
