No Longer Newlyweds :(

I'm a few days slow with my post, but let's just blame that on my wonderful computer & lack of spare time at work. I know I made the announcement that Mario & I were headed to the happiest place on Earth, Disneyland, for our anniversary, but I'm kind of a liar like that.

Since my comp is not playing fair, the pics will have to come another day, hopefully tomorrow. But for now, I'll just give you the written story.

We left for our trip on Wednesday, and went down to Hollywood. Kevin was performing at the Magic Castle, which turned out to be a great show. That place is awesome for those who don't know. There were some fantastic magicians there, Kevin was the best of course :) On our way to the castle we saw this guy...I tried to find the most charming pic I could, since he's everything but. He was filming something on the walk of fame (not that kinda something). Once we made it into the castle, we saw another celeb, this guy...
Look familiar? If so, you've been watching Criminal Minds. He was enjoying his time at the castle as well.

Thursday morning we got up and drove down to San Diego for the next 3 nights. Talk about a nice change from the crazy heat in Fresno. The high's were in the low '60s, so we actually didn't get to enjoy the ocean like we'd planned. Didn't matter though, we had a jacuzzi tub in our hotel room ;) Enough said. For the wonderful few days we were down there, we went to: Seaport Village, Sea World, Old Town, Wild Animal Park, La Jolla, and spent a little time in the Gaslamp District. Can't wait to post the pics, but there's a little insight to our awesome anniversary trip.

Tea & Taxes, Anyone?

Like Mom said, she's gonna party like it's 1773. And that she did, with the help of Addy & her pig.
It's kinda hard to see, but it says "Leave my granddaughter's piggy bank alone!"
Fresno just had to take part in the tax day protest, which turned out to be one of the biggest in the nation, so they said. About 7,500 people showed up to the Savemart Center for a fun filled afternoon of NObama rallies (or something). I wouldn't know, my work wouldn't pay me for an afternoon of protesting, I guess Mom's did. Here's the link for more on the valley's tea party

Happy Easter

This Easter was probably the first holiday where I have really just been able to relax for the day. Poor Mario had to work :( Apparently St. Agnes doesn't believe in holidays, but I believe in holiday pay (yay!). So mid morning, Donnie, Meg, Addy & I went to Grandpa Lee's to visit for a little bit. Here's a pic Meg took from the couch. No babies were harmed in the making of this pic (although Addyson looks as though she may be smashed). For more on them, click here
After we got back I took a nap :) Yes, it was lovely. Then I started with dinner, and made my first ever ham. Much easier than I ever expected. Even with my 1970's oven I managed not to burn it. I guess there were a few things from the '70s that turned out okay ;) Mario's mom & step-dad came by for dinner. It was a nice quiet evening. So nice not to hop from house to house. It's always so tiring once we finally make it back home. And then we watched Extreme Makeover Home Edition. Even Mario started to tear up, (now he's gonna kill me). If you saw it, you know what I'm talking about, probably the most touching episode yet. Hope everyone had a great day yesterday :)

TGIF & Happy Bday Dad!

As I sit here bored at work, I can't help but smile about knowing it's Friday! I've even added the Black Eyed Peas to my playlist to get me pumped :) Everyone needs some Boom Boom Pow today. If that doesn't make you want to get up & dance, you're lame.

So, a little update on La Familia Silva. We played out last soccer game last night, and finished the season 0-8. As in 0 wins, 8 miserable losses, and a busted up big toe (oh, and my Podiatrist, so not proud). On the bright side, we had a lot of fun. We're hoping to get enough people together for a team sometime & play on a beginner league so that we might actually have a chance at winning. If you're interested, let me know.

Thanks to those who gave me advice for Disneyland. We're still working out the details, but I'm really, REALLY excited to get away for a few days. For the last time Mom, you can't come with us. We don't need a chaperone.

Lastly, today is Dad's bday, so Happy Birthday Dad(even though you will never see this). Since I don't have my comp here with me, this is the only pic I could find, but it's super cute. Sorry to subject you to another wedding picture. But I was having a really good hair day :)

Have a wonderful weekend!
