The Queen: Michelle

The Queen: Michelle
I am 28 years old. Still a princess but the queen of my family. Spoiled beyond belief. Lucky and truely blessed. A lover. A crafter. A mother. A wife. A friend. This is me.

My King: Junior

My King: Junior
The LOVE of my life! He completes me and balances me out in every way. He's a workaholic. He's loud, blunt, and crazy. He drinks Monsters like his life depends on it. Above all he is the greatest Daddy I could ever ask for, for my children. And he treats me like his Queen (and he calls me that too).

The Model Child: Diego Ray

The Model Child: Diego Ray
9 years old. My only boy. He is the epitome of the perfect child. He is so responsible and independent. Wise beyond his years. He is laughter, he is love, he is compassion, he is simply amazing. He keeps me grounded and reminds me always that I am beautiful. He is a natural born leader and takes care of the household and family better than me!

The Diva: Alayna Danae

The Diva: Alayna Danae
7 years old. She is drama. My fashionista for sure with a style all her own. Sensitive and loving when she wants to be. Thumbsucker. My biggest headache because she is the most like me. She is the only one who can cause me to become uncontrollably angry. She loves to dance. She loves to model. My bookworm and most academic.

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace
4 years old. This one is something else. She is pure comedy. Never a dull moment with her crazy antics. She is also the crybaby. She does things her own way. She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to be cute to get it. My Disney loving pal. So girly. Her favorite color is pink. Loves Rapunzel. Will wear a dress every single day. Can't leave the house without a bow in her hair. She refuses.

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle
2 years old. My sweet baby. She loves her Mommy above all else. She is a cuddlebug for sure. The calmest most well behaved baby ever! But she has TONS of energy. She is so small and petite. She loves to sing and dance. She so SO ready for ballet and has yet to even step foot in a class. She loves Minnie Mouse and watching Disney Jr. She is hilarious and talks way too much.

An Unexpected Trip

Saturday afternoon, I got a phone call from my good friend Felicia. She was calling to ask what size clothes and shoes Diego wears... because his birthday party is in two weeks. So we're talking for a few minutes and next thing I know, she's coming to visit us in Tucson along with her husband and two kids. They decided that they wanted to take us to Tombstone and Bisbee. So they came to spend the night with us.

So this morning we woke up, ate breakfast, made lunches, and took off on our little trip. I had been to Tombstone when I was about 5 or 6 but I don't remember it. My dad and I had been talking about going as well. So I was excited to do something we haven't done before. Plus Jr and I sometimes like to take spontaneous trips like that.

The drive up was very short. Felicia had grown up around the area and she was a good tour guide. Telling us about the different places.

First we stopped at the Holy Trinity Monastery. It was a very beautiful little church. Since it's not springtime yet... there were no flowers in bloom but the place was still so pretty. Peacocks roam the grounds and at the entrance there is a huge stone cross.



Felicia and I actually went inside the church while the guys entertained the kids outside. It was small but beautiful. We admired the paintings and statues a while. Felicia wrote a prayer for her daughter and then we were off.

Next we were arrived to Tombstone. We stopped first at the Boothill Graveyard and walked around for a while. Once we got into town, we took a few tours and did a lot of walking. It was very interesting to learn about this old west town. The first tour we took was a Trolley tour and before it started, a cowboy came on with his gun and tried to steal our belongings! We were laughing and having fun, until Diego starting crying because he thought it was a real stick up. Poor baby! We had to explain to him that everything was fake and it was just a show for fun. The rest of the day he spent it asking when we were leaving because he didn't like walking the streets and seeing the cowboys with their guns. He held my hand the whole rest of the time we were there. He didn't like not one show we saw.



Once we saw everything and took a few pictures we decided to continue on to Bisbee. Due to high winds we didn't stay very long in Bisbee. Be we drove around enough to see the little town. The buildings were very unique. We found an area that had graffiti and took some pictures there. We also went and saw the mines. Wow looked like the Grand Canyon. But very cool to see.





So we had a great time! And were so tired by the time we were done. I am so glad Felicia and James invited us. (Thanks guys, you're awesome!) Hopefully we can do it again soon. I definitely want to go back again.

Wow, that's totally awesome. You know I have been wanting to go to Toombstone and Bisbee for a while now. I am glad at least I got to see some of the pictures you took. How funny that Diego didn't like it. Maybe next week when we go we can visit the Mission and maybe go eat to the Sonics where the cars gather. I wonder if they gather weekly or only once a month, perhaps Jr. can find out.

Daddy - Diego HATED it, to put it lightly. Haha. He never wants to go back. I think we should have prepared him for where we were going... but I didn't think he'd be scared!

Also Felicia and James may just come back again this weekend since I told her you guys may be coming. And that we can go see the Mission this time. Shall we plan a trip then?

Jose said...

Well, I wonder if Diego will say you took him to a place where they "dig people in". lol

Your papa was at the house on Saturday and I heard your mom inviting them, they said yes but knowing papa they never go. Anyway if we go we'll let you know later in the week. You can call your mama to confirm. Love ya.
