Summer time

This summer has been great and I love summers as I get to spend so much time with my sweet boy. This summer we have spent it watching lots of mickey mouse, but also doing lots of fun things. We have painted pictues, played matching games, built forts, and read tons of books. This time with my sweet boy has been amazing. We began the summer with a family vacation. We went to Austin, San Marcos, San Antonio, and to visit with my family in Uvalde. What a great trip it was and it was so relaxing. We spent time exploring and just spending time as a family and that was the best ever. This is Alejandro vistiting with my grandma during our time to Uvalde and is one of my favorite pictures from our trip.
When we returned home from our trip Alejandro and i just have enjoyed spending time together. He is so smart for two years old he sings and has an imagination that is out of this world. He likes to play with stuff animals now and make up stories as he plays with them. He keeps me entertained daily and my house may look a mess, but I know it is just him making memories and exploring his imagination and remember to be patient and allow him to do these things.

This past week we were able to go on another mini-vacation as I was sent to a workshop in Ft. Worth and asked Paul to go with me so we could get another small trip in before my summer ends. I am so glad we did, the workshop was not as great as I hoped, but I was glad to spend time with some of my co-workers during the day. It also provided my two boys to spend some quality time together. We also got to take my sweet boy to the zoo and that was a lot of fun, very hot but well worth the time to see Alejandro's face light up when seeing the animals. He loved the elephants, bears, and giraffes most of all.

As summer time is quickly coming to an end for me I am blessed to have summer off and make memories with my sweet boy. I am glad to see him learing so much and having fun with mommy. I miss him so much during my regular work days, but I remember all the things we get to do together and remember how blessed I am. My sweet boy is no longer a baby and we are working on potty training and it has also been an adventure this summer, but again memories we are making. Hopefully we will get it down before summer ends. :)
