Sorry for the lack of posts this week, we’ve been way too busy having FUN for me to stop and write. This post will be a picture overload- just warning ya!
The past week and a half we’ve had lots of fun with Filipe’s family. Our nephew came to visit, and so with all six of the Santos cousins in California, we decided to go camping! There were six adults and six kids (ages 2-8). We had so much fun and it was relatively stress free.
We returned from camping on Saturday and on Sunday I took Lily to see the Gymnastic Olympic Trials. I love love love Olympic gymnastics and have always wanted to go. When I saw that the trials were coming to San Jose, I knew I couldn’t pass it up. It would be the closest I would get to the Olympics anytime soon. Back in April I bought tickets for Lily and I to go together (Filipe wasn’t near as excited).
Lily had a blast. After every girl went she would say, “she’s my favorite!”. She had more than five favorites.
The most exciting part was when they brought out Mary Lou Retton and Shawn Johnson.
The saddest part of all was seeing Nastia fall from the uneven bars. I took this picture seconds before the fall. When she fell the entire place gasped. I almost cried for her. I was happy for the other girls, but sad for Nastia. I still can’t believe she didn’t make it. 🙁
This week we’ve been enjoying time with our nephew before he goes back to Charleston.
We celebrated 4th of July with the rest of our community at the annual city festival. Every year South Bay goes to serve the city. There are lots of crafts for kids, prizes, and trash to help clean up.

Some of our South Bay volunteers making crafts with kids.
That was our week, how was yours?!
