Oakland Temple

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 ).

I'm sure some of you doesn't know what a Temple es and why the Mormons build them. If you go to this link you can learn about it.

After the Temple we went camping. Ramon was the one who push us to do it. Todd had been traveling a lot in the last three weeks, so we needed some special time all together.

We went to a beautiful Redwood Forest. All for us. Seems like everyone went to the beach instead.

We love the Redwoods. There are a lot of things to see and to do.

So today after camping we went to the Farmers Market to eat something and later to see the Parade. It was amazing, we saw some dancing horses and heard a great band.

By the way, I finished my quilt!!!!
I feel very Proud
HAPPY 4th of JULY!!

That quilt is awesome, Fati!! I love it. Really great work. Your camping trip looks so fun. I would love to see the Redwoods. Ramon looks so much bigger from just a month ago. He is so handsome. The Oakland temple is beautiful. I totally know what you mean about giving apologies verses fighting with kids. :) Only one more month and we'll be camping in Utah. :)

Thanks Abbie,
The quilt was a times a nightmare, but I keep doing it and I really liked the result. I learn a lot from doing it. When are you going to visit us? We will love it. I dream to go one day to San Diego.

I'm really counting the days to go camping in Utah. See you soon.
