…and the MONTHS flew by!

Oh little blog how you have been neglected! We have been so busy living life that we haven’t taken time to update and record our happenings! So…let’s go back a few months and catch up!

EASTER

We had a wonderful Easter celebrating our risen Lord and spending special time in Sparta. The girls had been waiting months to meet their cousins Nathan and Graham and their Aunt Rebecca (they got to see Uncle Matthew in January). It was the first time that all of us would be together…the Ruiz family and of course, NaNa and Grandpa. A great time was had by all and the kids did fantastic playing together and wearing us all out! The basement is always a hit at NaNa and Grandpa’s house especially when block and box forts are involved. We all took many chuckwagon rides and the girls love “making and cooking food” in NaNa’s landscaping. Easter day was beautiful and after church and lunch we enjoyed a fun Easter egg hunt and afternoon outside. We also had a special visit from the Johnson ladies (Ms. Amy and Sofia) one day. Our last day together NaNa and Grandpa took the bigger cousins (our two girls and Nathan) along with the “moms” to the Magic House. A GREAT time was had by all and it was so fun to go together. We were all worn out by the end of our long weekend, but special memories were made and we can’t wait for many more fun times with our cousins and family!
