Easter is a tradition that we enjoy for the kids but most of all, I enjoy it because it’s another chance to celebrate being with my family and make lots of memories together.

I’ve skipped some very important highlights of our lives in the last few months. Now its time to play catch up.

DD requested a Flower Birthday Party. I saw a DIY pinata in Pinterest and decided to try it out myself. It turned out pretty neat.

Our dear friend, Music with Sara has written a new song, just in time for Valentine’s Day! The song is titled El Dia del Amor y la Amistad.  My husband and I are so privileged for the opportunity to work on the music video.  I worked on the paper cut outs and my hubby did the awesome animation.

Hope you enjoy it!

When we got home, I asked the kids…
“What was your favorite part of the Fall Festival?” They answered, “You Mommy! Because we don’t get to spend too much time with you cause you have to be at work for a long time.”
Awww I love my babies! and I’m so grateful with every opportunity to spend time with them.

Black-White and Red Party

I’d like to share a dessert table I worked on a few months ago for a graduation party.

It was a Black, White and Red themed party. The rest of the decor was damask, so I used that for inspiration.

For the sweets, most of the items used were pre made and store bought. It made the decorating so much easier.

The chocolate covered white pretzels were so convenient.

I love how the white meringue contrasted well with the red roses.

Pastries were served in white cupcake liners and laid out nicely on black platters.

The Red Vines were such a hit!

This was a great color theme. Cant wait to try other combinations next time!

DS wanted to celebrate his 7th birthday in Legoland this year. We scored 2 day Park Hopper passes through a friend’s discount.

Our passes were good for admission to Sea Life, Legoland Theme Park and the Legoland Water Park.

We went to Sea Life first, because the theme park was still closed when we got there. Sea life is an aquarium with Lego characters. The set up is catered to young children and very interactive. It’s almost like a discovery museum. DS and DD enjoyed it! I loved the variety of colorful sea animals the most =)

Untitled

The Theme Park was cute. They had a variety of attractions for the children. DH was able to ride with DS in the more adventurous rides and I stayed with DD unless there was a ride she felt like getting on.

Legoland

Untitled

I was very happy with the variety of rides available. The kids were able to enjoy rides they were able to go on by themselves and there were also some that we can all go on as a family.

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

More than just the rides, we also enjoyed the other activities available in the park.

Untitled

Untitled

Yup, that’s my family on the slide!
Untitled

My kids had a blast panning for Gold!
Untitled

There were a lot of photo opps everywhere! Walking Lego people!!!

Legoland

And ALL types of Lego Sculptures! I love it!
Untitled

Untitled

There was a small water play area (apart from the actual Water Park), which is always a hit with the children!
Untitled

Untitled

Being parents to young children, I always appreciate play areas. And Legoland delivered! =)
Untitled

Untitled

We were there from opening to closing of the park and we didn’t even cover the whole park. I’m so glad we had a ticket for a 2nd day! Next time, we’ll be heading to the Water Park =)

It was very tiring, but very fun! We had an amazing family time celebrating DS’s 7th Birthday at Legoland California!
