Flower Photography #WW


Flowers are always so well arranged and in bright colors here in SoCal, I can't resist taking pictures every time I see them. There a million ways to take pictures of flowers but my favorite one is to come close focus on a little bunch and leave a blurry background so that it will tell a story and balance together.

These pictures are from Knott's Berry Farm, we went last weekend, I will be coming back with tons more of our day!

Aquí en el sur de California las flores están siempre tan acomodaditas y con colores super brillantes que cada vez que las veo les tengo que tomar fotos. Hay mil maneras de tomar fotos de flores, pero me encanta acercarme a unas y dejar el fondo borroso para que cuente la historia y se complementen.

Estas las encontré en Knott's Berry Farm, fuimos el fin de semana pasado, así que ya regresaré a enseñarles más fotos y contarles con más detalles como nos fué!

Easter Egg Piñatas DIY


We made these Easter Egg Piñatas and it was very fun. I wasn't expecting so much involvement from the kids in the process but they really got involved in it all with my guidance.

Their favorite part was adding the strips to the balloon with the flour/water mix, it gets very messy! They also decorated their own.

Adrian's is the one with blue and orange and Maya's is the striped one with pink, yellow and blue pastels. I decorated the one with fringe since it's the more advanced style.

You can go to Latinamom.me to check out the Piñata step-by-step instructions. Meanwhile here are some of the photos that didn't make it to the article but they show how the kids were so concentrated and enjoying every stage of the process.

As a kid's activity for Easter this is great, there is still time to make it before this Sunday!

Hicimos estas piñatas de huevitos de Pascua y fue muy divertido. No me esperaba que los niños participaran tanto en el proceso, pero con mi guía realmente lo hicieron fascinados!

La parte favorita de ellos fue poner las tiras en el globo con el engrudo, es un desastre, por eso les gusta, jaja! También decoraron ellos mismos sus propias piñatas. 

La de Adri es la que tiene azul y naranja y la de Maya es la de rayas de color rosado, amarillo y azul pastel. Yo decoré la que tiene franjas con flequillos ya que esa es la más avanzada de hacer.

Pueden ir a Latinamom.me para que vean todas las instrucciones paso a paso de las piñatas. Mientras tanto aquí están algunas de las fotos que no puse en el artículo pero muestran cómo los niños estaban tan concentrados y disfrutando de cada momento del proceso. 

Es una actividad de Pascua para que los niños hagan muy chévere y divertida, aparte cuando esté lista la pueden  tumbar y agarrar dulces por supuesto! Todavía queda tiempo para hacerla antes de este domingo!

Let's go to Knott's Berry Farm {Giveaway}


One of the many great things of living in South California is all the huge theme parks that are so close. And yet we haven't visited them all.

We are getting ready to visit Knott's Berry Farm for the very first time!



We got invited to the second annual Spring festival called Knotts Berry Bloom that starts April 12th and goes until April 27th.

In this Spring festival they will have many attractions like:

Yellow Belt: Wordless Wednesday

Adrian started doing Karate a couple of months ago, he is loving it! He got his first promotion, he is a Yellow Belt now. It was fun to see all of the kids get their new belts and break them open saying HIYA! Let's see how far he goes on this new sport!

--

Adri está practicando karate, ya lleva un par de meses y le gusta mucho. Le dieron la primera promoción de cinturón blanco a cinturón amarillo. Fué muy chévere ver a todos los niños agarrando sus cinturones nuevos y abriéndolos al mismo tiempo con un solo grito: JAIYÁ! Vamos a ver hasta donde llega Adri con su deporte nuevo!
