Esperanza and Marilu...

Espe and Marilu came to visit from Milwaukee.... Marilu was adopted from Guatemala and was in the same foster home with foster mother Loranna during the adoption process. Espe (also Neyvada's Godmother) is Guatemalan and her family still live in Guatemala. They both had a fantastic time in Arizona as we were constantly on the go. The sprinklers , candy store , shopping and eating at Scpottsdale Quarter. The McDonalds ranch petting zoo. We had an adult night out at Mastros where Espe got to dance and make a few new friends... Lots of swimming at home and at the health club.. Espe went to spin , core and zumba class with me and hiked pinnacle peak mountain. Her very first mountain..., proud of you Espe!! Another first for Espe and Marilu was Las Vegas. With only an easy and scenic  4-1/2 hour drive ...i decided last moment that i had to take Espe to Vegas because she has never been and did not know when or if she would ever have an opportunity to see the most awesome city.. .. With a complimentary room at one of the new hotels we packed up 5 kids, pop tarts and enough food for the trip  and went.. i was so happy i was able to do this for her as everyone should see Vegas at least once in their life time...She was amazed..It was a quick 24 hours in Vegas ..On our feet showing her the sights of Bellagio, Ceasars, Paris, Venician, Aria, and the Cosmopolitain of course and and a few more...  our last stop was Pinks for Hot dogs and a a starwberry daiquiri at the Daiquiri Bar next door that got Espe a bull ride with her drink... She took the bull ride with smiles and fun and then fell to the ground very quickly.. (your a good sport Espe:o) Her last day i took her to Buffalo Chips in Cave Creek for Karaoke .. we all sang even the girls sang .. their song..Jingle Bells .. It was a great trip .. So happy and grateful you came to visit us  Espe.your a great friend... Abrazo's and Beso's....(hugs and kisses)
