What a beautiful Temple we have, here in California. We went this Friday 3th of July, Ramon and I went to the visitors center. He loves to touch the big statue of Jesus Christ, especially the foot marks (I don't know if he is allowed to do it, but it is easier to say sorry that to hold Ramon ;D ).
My sisters, Ramon and I visited our friends Heather, Hannah and Rockwell this weekend at Davis. We did a lot of things. My favorites were to ride our bikes around the university, the festival earth music and my first bowling experience.
Thanks for all the help we had in preparing the party and thanks to all his friends who came. The kids rode on donkeys. After the piñata, the kids marched a musical parade around the neighborhood. It was so fun for Ramon that he wants a Birthday Party everyday.
It was a great experience to meet Sergio Burgos finally after all this years hearing Todd talking about him. Sergio is from Uruguay. He has a beautiful wife and three kids. Todd meet him 15 year ago. He was his mission companion in Argentina. They were and are great friends. Todd and him told me some fun and good memories of their mission. We talked about the Gospel, life and projects.To see him was a dream that came truth for Todd. Todd said that to see Sergio after all this years must be the same that when we go to heaven. We will meet and hug again with all our beloved family and friends.
The freshest Dungeness Crab we've ever eaten. Ramon and I went in bike to the port and buy some deliciouse fresh crab. The fishmen were very nice with Ramon, Ramon was very excite about been in a boat.
The past Saturday we went with Matty to Golden Gate Park, it was beautiful. I didn't know that we were so close of such a beautiful park full of activities, Ramon and I for sure are going to visit more frecuently. We loved it.
We are so happy that Justin happens to visit us yesterday, for Todd's birthday. Todd says it was one of the best birthdays he can remember.
"Fati and Ramon made me a photo montage of our latest year together that makes me look like a super-dad (building fires with Ramon, canoeing, etc.) I proudly took it to work to hang in my office. She got some power tools too, but I think she's keeping those for herself. Nowadays you're as likely to hear the whine of a jigsaw as the hum of a sewing machine in the house. That's just Fati with her most recent project. Ramon isn't far behind with his screwdriver. He's a one-tool man. Justin came strolling in at about 5:30. We walked down to the Miramar restaurant and ordered crab and salmon. Ramon decided "Tio Justin" was tops when Justin shared his soup with him and played "huevo" with him later on the couch (pretending to break an egg on Ramon's head -- I'm in for a lot of Justin imitation going forward). Tio Justin headed off this morning for his flight from Sacramento. We were glad for the visit. " -- Todd
I want to say thanks to Sergio Burgos for calling him yesterday from so far away. We were very happy to hear from you.
Ramon and I went to visit the Half Moon Bay Fire Station. One of Ramon's best friends Mom just make an appointment with the Fire Departament for a tour, she also speaks spanish. I feel so grateful for the wonderfull mothers and kids at the church. There are a lot of boys around Ramon's age, he LOVE it.
It was beautiful. The Redwood were not the big ones but the tallers ones. They are beautiful. We met the famose Banana slug too. This forest is just 30 minutes away from home. We are very grateful to the friends from Church for ride us to this beautiful and peaseful place.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own undestanding
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. ----------------------- Fiate de Jehova de todo tu corazon y no te apoyes en tu propia prudencia. Reconócelo en todos tus caminos y él enderezara tus veredas.
