Montezuma's Castle

We went up to Flagstaff solely to meet up with my friend Linn for picnic with her siblings as she was driving through from Vegas to New Mexico.  I got no pictures of that (*bad friend*).  Well, we decided to make more use to that trip and we stopped off at Montezuma's Castle on the way home.

No, Montezuma didn't really live here but they thought he did.  Really it was a people called the Sinagua.  They built this in the cave with multiple stories and additions. They used a system of ladders to get from the ground and between levels.  Sounds like a lot of work to me but I guess back they it was pretty cool stuff.  Either way, the structure and the innovation is pretty amazing.
It's one of those things you always SAY you're gonna do and then never do. Well, it's about time...!

Stacy Came To Visit

My sister and her family came to visit for a week over the 4th of July.  This is her with her 2 boys: Bryce (8) and Cole (6).

This is her with her boyfriend Michael.  We took them to the Grand Canyon and then to Vegas.
I love this picture.  I know it's their backs but it's very artistic and I like it.  Plus their standing on the edge of a cliff staring at the Grand Canyon. Maybe I should push them... Just kidding!
Now, the obligatory in-front-of-the-Las Vegas-sign picture.  We did TONS of stuff in Vegas but I'll just give you the list.  We saw the Flamingos at the Flamingo, the Lions at MGM, the volcano at the Mirage, the water ballet at the Bellagio (my ALL TIME favorite thing in Vegas), M&M World and some other stuff.  There's more but I can't remember.  Even though we were doing all these cool things in Vegas, the youngens just wanted to play at Gameworks. Go figure.
I'm so glad they came to visit! Besides the fact that Stacy had never met Diego, I miss my sister and hope we can eventually move closer together. And, yes, I do know that we look SOOO much alike.  When we were growing up people thought we were twins.  Come on people, we're 5 and half YEARS apart!!
Love you Stace!

Anniversary in San Diego

It's been a GREAT three years for us and we went to San Diego to celebrate. We went geocaching in Balboa Park.

I found this awesome patch of flowers.
Diego had fun playing fighter pilot on the USS Midway.
Yep, that's me with Principle Figgins from Glee. He was just having some lunch with his family on the pier.
Diego looking all powerful at Seaport Village.
The beach at La Jolla.
Sun set at Pacific Beach.
Mind you, this was all in a day and a half.  It was a very good time!

A Year in Picture...

Okay, well half a year.  We have been doing stuff.  I've just been remiss in either taking pictures or posting them.  So here's a recap of the first half of our year.

To start off with we have Pollo Disco night in January.  Pollo Disco is yummy chicken and sauce cooked outside in a round pan.  Really, just a reason for everyone to get together again.

Next we have a charity walk in February for the American Heart Association with our friends Stacy and Walter who, incidentally, live in England at the moment.
Later on for Easter all the Argentines (okay, not ALL, just some of the ones here in Arizona) got together for a picnic at a park and Walter cooked a pig for us.  That's right, an entire pig!  Look close enough and you can see teeth and tongue next to Diego's elbow.
That brings us to May where my boss at the pharmacy threw a Gringo de Mayo party.  Her husband's from Mexico and wouldn't let her call it a Cinco de Mayo party cause they don't really celebrate it - just us.
