On the weekend Tonio and I decided to try and make paella. We used to do this thing where every month we had a theme, and then every weekend we had to make a meal of the special theme or ingredient. This is our "date-night," where we don't have to hire a babysitter, we get a good meal and we can gab about the week while we're cooking. The paella didn't really turn out- I mean, it was edible but if you closed your eyes you weren't transported to Spain:). But hey, we did it without a recipe, and the next time we will investigate beforehand.
Live...laugh...love Life with 4 kids 6 and under. Our trip to pick up Tonito in China is: mid-March 2008 through April 12. Our trips to pick up Ricky in Ethiopia are in June and August of 2010.

We went up to Auntie Susie's house for Memorial Day weekend and had a blast playing in the sand, riding in the pontoon boat, canoeing, and attempting to catch the bunny-sized bullfrogs groaning around her property (Krystal was successful despite the piercing screams of Keaton:).

What a relaxing weekend- the kids went to the zoo with papi on Saturday, and then on Sunday we took a long walk and had a picnic in the park. These are some pictures from Sunday's dinner- ribs, turkey hot dogs, and asparagus on the grill (what a combo:), spinach salad and bean salad. The kids both ate their first hot dogs!!! I can't believe Vivi ate it (she's my self-proclaimed vegetarian). Of course Tonito ate it- he likes everything so far, even the 2 salads!
