Sienna and mornings

Sienna is not a morning person. She basically has to be left alone until at least 30 minutes after she wakes up. Approach her with caution.

Car Show

Andres loves to go to car shows. We went to San Dimas today and I think it was the hottest day of the year. We walked the streets and looked at some really nice cars along the way. This was his favorite car.
It was a low rider that read: Way Old School

The girls went to a water park today with their class. They had such a wonderful time. Sienna was a bit scared at first because the water was a bit cold. However, after watching the kids run around and seeing her Big sister have a blast she joined in on the fun too.

Water Table Play

It has been so hot these last few days. We decided to play with the water table today and see how long we could last outside. I think we were playing for about 15 minutes.

First Pony Ride

Today at the Monrovia Farmers Market, Sienna rode her first pony ride. She has been scared to do it for a while and today she said she wanted to try it out. I placed her on and she didn't object. She was so happy and waved hello each time she passed us by. Our baby is growing up.

Happy 4th of July

Fireworks! It was a long day hanging out with the family at a BBQ and going swimming. The girls were dead tired because they did not take a nap all day. Andres really wanted to see fireworks so we put the girls in their pjs and off we went.
Tessa was out before we turned the corner and Sienna was still awake wondering where we were going. We watched the firework show in West Covina and they were so loud I thought for sure, Tessa would wake up and Sienna was going to scream like crazy.
Neither happened.
Sienna just watched with a cautious eye and loved every minute of it from her car seat. The fireworks were so loud that is set off all the car alarms around us. It lasted for about 20 minutes and in the end Sienna said, "More fireworks!"

La Puente Park tradition

Andres has been coming to La Puente Park every year from the time he was a kid to see the fireworks in the park the day before the 4th of July. We have been going since we started dating and Tessa and Sienna started going since they were born.
This year the girls are a bit older and could really take in the show. Tessa was in awe and Sienna was a bit scared at first but then gradually enjoyed the fireworks in the sky. In the end she said, "Fireworks? More Fireworks!" even though she hid her face in my chest the whole time.

Idealab BBQ

At work today, we celebrated the 4th of July. We had a very special BBQ that was cooked and made to order by our facilities department. We also had a "Bake-Off" in which employees contributed to the yummy desserts. It was a lot of fun and but a lot of work. People had some really amazing desserts.

Singing in the Car

Sienna loves to hear music in the car. Her favorite song right now is by Santana called Foo Foo. When she hears it, she kicks her feet in the air and starts to bounce.
