Memorial Day Weekend
I am so thankful for the many brave men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. I am humbled and so grateful for your service and sacrifice.

Along with celebrating Memorial Day I spent some wonderful days with all the family. Saturday was a fun and relaxing day with the kids. We first went shopping for Monica's birthday and then when to Grandma's to spend the rest of the afternoon in the pool. The weather was really nice since it only got into the nineties. Early Sunday morning I drove to Yuma and went to church with Frank, Greg, Donna and the kids. That afternoon we had a wonderfully, delicious barbecue and met some new friends, Sharon and Mark. We had a great time in the pool and sharing a meal together. Monday drove back to Imperial for lunch and to celebrate Monica's birthday. Thankfully, the traffic was very light coming back and I made it home before 9 p.m. tired but happy.

Congratulations to Vernon!Vernon delivers packages and office supplies to us from Central Stores everyday. He always has a smile on his face and a very pleasant and joyful spirit. Well, he has just completed the adult degree program and will be graduating this Friday with his Bachelor's degree. At work today we all surprised him with a delivery of our own...a gift and card for his graduation.

Ladies Spring Tea at Grace
It has become an annual tradition for me to help plan and be a part of the Spring Tea at church. This year the theme was "A Moments Rest". It was exciting to be part of all the planning and to almost sell out on the first day tickets were on sale. One hundred and four ladies were able to attend and we had enjoyable time of fellowship. Rose Marie help me host a table and together we had a great time decorating it and setting it all up

Celebrating Mom on her day!
This Mother's Day weekend Grace, Jon and I drove down to Imperial to celebrate. We all gathered at Timothy's place for delicious "sancocho de gallina" (a delicious traditional Colombian soup). It is always so fun to get all of the family together. We cooked, ate and laughed together. Later on Saturday night we drove to Yuma to have a nice relaxing time at Donna and Greg's. Sunday lunch was back in Imperial for more yummy sancocho. Happy Mother's day to all the amazing moms in our family. Love you all!

Busy, busy, busy...
Life has been very busy... or should I say work has been very busy. It's sometimes hard not to think of work as "life" but there have been a few occasions to celebrate. Yesterday, amidst all the Banner training we managed to get away for lunch to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Also, this week Dave, Megan, Steve, Robert and Don all had birthdays! This weekend is Mother's Day so Grace, Jon and I will be driving down to the desert to celebrate with all the moms! I am really looking forward to that =)
