I have been playing with my new camera (Nikon D7000 with Nikkor 18-200mm VR Lens and Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.4D Lens). I am learning how to use photoshop and I just love my new pictures. Cheesy? Well... yes. But I like them.

Joseph is Milo's swimming instructor.  He is very sweet with the children and you can see how comfortable Jared and Milo are following Joe's instructions.  Jared is such a good daddy, I am so lucky to have a partner who is so involved with our children. He stopped working so he could go with Milo. He didn't want to miss this experience with Milo.
At the end of their swimming class, Mario and Milo got cute medals.  I am so proud of them.
Milo LOVES his medal because Ralph from Wreck it Ralph has one. He knows that he is a hero.
Oh... I didn't tell you guys. Guess who is in Milo's swimming class? Natalie Portman and her son!
Yeap.  Pretty awesome. Milo and her son Aleph get along pretty well.

I took this picture a few weeks ago with my Olympus camera. I love underwater pictures.

Mario is taking more swimming classes at the community college. I took him today for the first time; the class started last week but I forgot... oops. Mario was calm and relaxed. The pool at the community college is deep and all the other little kids were screaming their lungs out. I was worried; I didn't want Mario to get nervous but he didn't cry. He was super cool. 
While he was swimming, I went to use the weight machines (I can push 165 pounds with my legs) and when I was done, I sat in the hot tub waiting for Mario. It was a great day: I got to work out and see my child being the best at what he is doing. I was so proud of him. 

In more news, Milo can use the toilet too! Every time he uses the potty, we go to the bathroom and make a HUGE deal about it. He gets a high five, a treat and to wear big boy underpants. He loves the color green, so all his underwear needs to have some type of green color. He still has accidents, but I am so proud of him for having initiative. He is a tiny little boy (he looks like he is a 1 year old) but he does act like a big child.
The boys are still picky eaters. They love cheese hot dogs, fries, croissants, and guess what? Mario is eating pepperoni. He doesn't know that pepperoni is meat, so don't tell him because Mario is "vegetarian." (Seriously don't tell him).
I am so proud of my little family. They are really the best.

Cute picture of me and my mami.

Easter in our House.

Happy Easter to everyone. We had a wonderful weekend full of activities and memorable experiences. Before I start, I would love to say a few thing about Easter. I am so thankful for the sacrifice Jesus made for all of us, I would never be able to pay him back . I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and I really hope to someday be able to be like they are, perfect. 

I also want to share with you about my gorgeous red dress.  Two years ago I bought this cute dress from shabby apple and I payed full price for it (which I never ever do, Hobbs rule #2.) The only problem was that I bought the dress as an incentive to lose weight and I never did. For two years that gorgeous dress was sitting in my closet and today I decided to give it a try. Well, it fit!  I couldn't believe that I slimmed down that much (I won't brag about my new size). This red dress is my Easter miracle dress.  I still can't believe it fits! I wish I had  another one in light pink...oh well.

 We went to our ward Easter party. The boys sang and eat donuts and parfaits as refreshments.  This was Mario's first year going egg hunting with the big kids. He only got 8 eggs but he had the  greatest time. Milo did very well, his basket was so full.

 This is my mom first Easter in United States and we had to make it memorable  I didn't make anything too fancy.  I am sure she loved it.

Here are a few pictures of my handsome boys.

The boys favorite part was too ride a bike at the church's parking lot. They got to ride a bike and they were having a blast.  Milo was not ready to get out of the bike. He cried for 10 minutes.

I almost forgot to mention that Jared made the boys the cutest pancakes ever. He called them the Mario and Luigi pancakes. Everyone was happy, this is what I call a perfect weekend. I really hope all of you had a wonderful  Easter holiday remembering the savior. xoxo
