Fiesta In San Diego

 Hola Amigos! I hope you all took the time to embrace some culture this weekend, whatever it is you did this weekend to celebrate Cinco De Mayo, I hope you had a great time doing it -- even if it includes the Americanized version of tacos (ya know, hamburger meat in a hardshell)...at least you tried. I say that with all seriousness, at least you tried. Lately, there has been increased tension when it comes to acknowledging all of the different cultures in America, so if you put in effort this Friday to celebrate a different culture ( or took the time to embrace your own culture) give yourself a pat on the back. 

This Cinco De Mayo we headed out to Old Town San Diego to participate in the all the festivities. This is the first time we've been out as a family since Alan started walking again (he is using a cane) and it was nothing short of perfect. It feels like it's been forever since we've done something like this, way too long if you ask me. Obviously we didn't venture far, but we still managed to embrace our culture and have a good time. It felt like every five feet we were stopped for people wanting to pet Arlo, which was mostly okay since we're trying to socialize her as much as possible. She just so happens to love all of the humans, especially children, which is all I ever wanted. 

((peep those gorgeous succulents)) After May comes June, which means I only have 50 days left of this free-spirited beauty being three years old. I have no idea where time has went, but I wish I could get it back. We've always done learning around the house, but recently we made our way over to Barnes & Noble and picked up a preschool workbook (3-5yrs) for her to start working with. We're moving through the booklet at a rapid pace (she's so smart), more so than I anticipated and it's making me have pre-anxiety about sending her off to kindergarten, I only have year left. *insert ugly crying face 
I don't like tacos...said no Juan ever.
