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.

Vegas Weekend Part 2

The night before I started a Video Diary documenting us... so there will be a few of these throughout this post. This first one should have went with the first post on Vegas but it hadn't uploaded in time... so here it is.



The next morning was a bit chaotic. Junior wakes us up and says it's 9:30am we need to start getting ready if we're gonna make our 11am checkout time. So Jen and I lay in bed a little longer when all of a sudden we realize... daylight saving happened over night and it wasn't 9:30 it was 10:30!

Well no time for us girls to even shower... Jr did... but we got ready in a flash and we're out just before 11am. Man, and we needed to hurry because we still had a little shopping to do and we wanted to be out of Vegas early so we wouldn't get home too late. Jen had to work Monday morning and so did the people taking care of our kids.

But I did snap this shot of Jr and I in the mirror before we left our room.

After that fiasco we decided to cruise the whole strip. Again, I've never seen the WHOLE strip before. So another first for me. Now I've seen the whole strip, and I've seen it at night. Score!

Then we decided we were very hungry and stopped at Fatburger for lunch... which was actually our breakfast. Never been there before either! Man I was on a role with new experiences!
Photobucket

Then Jen got mad at me cuz she ordered first... but I got my strawberry milkshake before she got her vanilla milkshake. What can I say... it wasn't my fault. LOL

Photobucket


Now that we were fed we decided to go to this souvenir store and do a little more shopping. It's all we did and we are quite good at it.

Jen tried finding a handsome prince...

Photobucket

Didn't work out... she just got ugly...

Photobucket

Jr searched for the perfect pair of shades... don't these just enhance his eyes?

Photobucket

And I... well... I studied...

Photobucket

After all the fun we hit the road.

Photobucket

Very soon we were right back at the Hoover Dam... that was quick!

Photobucket





Even though it was getting late... we decided to stop and get off this time. Yay another first for me... I was gonna see it up close and personal... instead of from a car window.

Photobucket

It was really windy...

Photobucket

And Jr became photographer and took over taking pictures... a lot times we were his subjects.

But he did get these two AWESOME pictures.

Then I got my camera back once we were in the car. And back in Arizona.

Photobucket

I was sleepy so I decided to take a little cat nap. Umm... BIG MISTAKE!



So after a fit of laughter I decided that I had to pee and we MUST stop!



Jr grabbed some Hot Chocolate...

And Jen played with a machine for like 10 minutes trying to get a soda where the quarter slot was filled with quarters... prohibiting her from getting one.

Photobucket

Then we finally were on the correct road back to Phoenix... doing 90 on the I-17 all the way home... until we got on the 101...

(If you make it through this video you're a real trooper!)

Man that was on adventurous trip home... one will for sure never forget either.

just a question? how the hell did it take from 3pm to 10pm to get home where the hell did she go lol

Jose said...

She did it on purpose she just wanted to take the scenic route at night just to see what it looked like. The few times I've been to Vegas we have always gone to that souvenier store. I think it's the one constant there.

Felicia - When Melo women go ANYWHERE this is ALWAYS what happens. Seriously. It's even a joke in our family that it's always an adventure with us. It truly is. SOMETHING always happens. It was fun though.

Long story short, I fell asleep, Jr was playing his DS, Jen took a wrong turn, no one noticed until we ended up in Flagstaff in the snow. LOL

Daddy - Yup Jr and I went to that same souvenir store the last time too. It's big. It's where we got Layna's "Tiffany" bracelet and Diego's necklaces.
