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.

Sun & Mon:Going Home

Sunday I woke up dead tired. I was supposed to have gone shopping with the res of the girls to the alleys but since Jr had my wallet (or so I thought) I didn't go. He went with my Dad and brother-in-law to the Fabulous Fords Forever car show which is the whole reason why we were in California in the first place. But regardless, I woke up really weak and dizzy... most likely from lack of sleep the past few days since Arielle completely gave us a hard time every night and woke up bright and early. My body was physically exhasted and I couldn't take it.

But after a few hours I got up and the girls and I along with my cousin Rebecca and my brother and nephew Juanito ventured out alone to go have some tacos for lunch at our favorite taco spot. We go there EVERY time we go to Califonia and on this trip we had eaten there already 6 times. Yup it's that good.

After lunch we went to the Mall to walk around for a while. I shopped in the Disney store and got my kids some sunglasses for the summer. Alayna scored some flip flops too and Arielle got a towel and sippy cup from her Nina.

The rest of the day was spent napping and lounging around...



7:05am - Jr sripped me of my blankets and told me to wake up because we are headed home at 8:00.

7:30am - I am still laying down... but Jr and Diego have showered already. But it's kinds chilly out so we forego showering the girls and I just clean them up and dress them.

8:00am - We're supposed to be out by now... my aunt already left... I am barely showering but we're loaded up at least.

9:24am - We left! Gasing up at the gas station before we head on out. And Jr bought me a Cherry Coke without even asking for it...

9:39am - Okay... officially on the freeway... ::On the road again, feels good to be on the road again::

10:13am - First stop... breakfast at Gus Jr's

11:08am - In the car... breakfast was great. Full stomachs, empty bladders, and on our way. So far so good.

12:17pm - In Palm Springs for a little detour... man was in hard going up the steep hill to visit the Aerial Tramway. I swear I am deinitely out of shape. Almost paid $7 for a freakin Oange Juice... but didn't. Took a few pictures and now we're off again. I am riding in the Mustag with my Daddy now and my Mom took my place in the van.

12:30pm - Made it down the mountain wit no problems... stopping to check liquids in car... buying drinks. And now Jr is in the Mustang with me while my parents are in the van with the brats.

12:40pm - Okay restroom stop number two. Good thing we didn't leave Palm Springs yet... Alayna had to pee. WE WE'RE JUST AT A GAS STATION! So now we're at McDonalds peeing.

2:00pm - Nice little nap and now we're in Chiraco Summit. Just had some Ice Cream... bathroom break number 3... and channged Miss Arielle. I was soaked from the sweat and I am exhausted from the heat. No air means we have the wiondows rolled down and no back window means we have direct sulight on our bodies. Oy... I am tired. The sun really beats you up!

2:45pm - Back on the road.

4:48pm - We just stopped in Quartzsite to gas up again. Ate lunch at Chester's Chicken/Subway... bought the kids some snacks. Rested, hydrated, Oh yes... I napped again on the way in so I cooled off from all the sweat... (boy I probably smell really bad by now, good thing I showered before we left)... and bathroom break number 4. Drinking lots and lots of water...

5:00pm - Jr told me to get my screen out of the sun... LOL Uh okay! Blogging on road trips is fun.

5:20pm - Jr just got pulled over... long story short tailgaiting too close to my Mom and Dad.

5:54pm - Back on the road Dad is driving the 'Stang and it's a straight shot home...

6:45pm - Finally home!!! Yay!

I have that same picture of the windmills and mountains! And I have to say that when I was a kid, I used to write about my trips like the first time I went to San Francisco, I wrote about EVERYTHING we did and I put a time by it too. I will have to see if I can find them again, then maybe I can blog them.

The pictures are so cool, too.
