4th of July Weekend

I hope everyone had a Happy 4th of JULY!!!
my in-laws came down this weekend. Friday we went to a festival. didn't take pictures of it because it started raining. we had to go back home but i did enjoy a turkey leg and a lemonade, oh, and a funnel cake...yummy. we got home and watched the Macy's fireworks on tv. they were really cool. once it got dark we headed down to see the fireworks. awesome!!!

On Saturday we headed to the Market place. for those that don't know i live in San Antonio. the Market place is a little piece of Mexico. Got to see some Folklórico dances. most people don't know but when i lived in Mexico i us to be in folkloric dance. so when i watched the little girls dance it took me back. after watching the dancers we walked the market place and found lots of cute things.

i found some dolls like the one i bought in Mexico, except these were a little more expensive and i saw my being made :D

i love paper flowers!!
I had lots of fun this weekend :p

I'm BACK....

...what, i was gone!?! YEP, i left to Mexico two weeks ago!!! the bus ride was so long but it was worth it!! i had lots of fun and ate a lot. time to get back on the treadmill...hehe! I visited both of my Grandmas' house and a lot of aunts and uncles!!! i love the bright color houses. it kinda makes me happy!!

In one of my aunt's house we had a Bar-b-q!! it was deliciouses!! her back yard was full of awesome plants and decorations. i couldn't help it and took some pix! :D she had a pomegranate tree. i just wished they were riped. she also had lots of cactus!

on her walls she had the cutest little houses decorations. We also had the change to meet the next door neighbor's horse!! i was a little scared to touch it at first.

inside her house i found the littlest frame with a cross-stitch design i ever saw!! it was about 3x3!! i love finding little treasures that people have around there house!! They also had an inside water fountain and at the very top of it a found two little turtles!! hehe...
