Discovering new heights on the Sky Trail high ropes!b

As we settle into our life back home we find ourselves in a routine of the same activities, food and schedule of work… I look at my daughters and think about all that I’ve missed out on already. As a waitress I’ve worked many hours, many days of going to work before they wake and home after they are put to sleep. After finding out that our oldest will be heading off to PreK-4 this year I thought about how many summers I will have left with her before college. I think about the many activities that Geraldo and I have never had the chance of doing, we’ve been parents since we first met. For the first time in our relationship we went to the movies after the arrival of Elleanna, after three years we went to a club… So here’s my thought for the summer… For the rest of my life. How can I make memories, make the most of the summer, the most of the precious childhood and young adult life that I have. That we have?

After logging into usfamilyguide I saw an opportunity of adult fun! Family fun! Though our youngest is too young I may think this could be an opportunity of friendships and memories. Check this out a place for family fun, birthdays and group parties!

Tell the world we’re coming home!

After our adventure north in Maryland we couldn’t help but feel homesick… The bare trees of the winter, the silent nights coming home when dawn was about to rise. We felt alone, the friends we grew up with, the streets we knew like the back of our hand and the adventures still waiting for us under the warm sun.


We made our minds up by mid February it was time to return to our home… The fun times that wait ahead for our family. The family and friends we missed so much and the opportunity to begin our new life in our old home. Though the heartache of leaving… Watching my sisters growing along side of my daughters… Again I would be away from my father, the tears didn’t begin until the morning of.

As I bite my lip, holding back the many feelings as if again I would no longer be apart of their lives I packed my children up in our car. Geraldo ahead in our uhaul, snacks packed to the rift of each of us. Juices, sodas, apples, chips… Oh goodness were we ready for the long road ahead of us. As we leave in opposite directions I take one final look at the home that helped us get somewhat back on track; I know we aren’t fully on track but we have gotten our foot in the door for our bright future.





We took our time heading home, making pit stops for lunch, bathroom breaks and diaper changes along with an early night at the hotel. We didn’t want to push the girls though we stayed on a schedule some what due to the fact I would begin my transition from Applebee’s to Applebee’s and wanted to get looking for our new home.


My wonderful sister and brother in law helped us out, after arriving during cache ocho we stayed at my grandparents and waited for my inlaws to return. They were so kind to have a room for the girls, Geraldo and I as we began our harshly relastic search for a home. After a couple weeks I found the perfect home, a townhome in a quite neighborhood near the schools. As I walked in the front door I made it my mission… This will be our home.


The perfect first home… And by April it was ours!
