AK turns 3!


today we celebrated. Ak turned three. and it was my first day of school. we went to terraburger

terraburger is the latest little burger joint thats family freindly and boasting organic ingrediants. its alllll organic.


we had been wanting to check it out. its right next to costco and everytime we take ak to costco he sees the wicked playscape and wants in on the action. he's funny, if you tell him. "we cant go their today, were going to go eat at home" he'll keep dazing off and then he'll say, "well i wanna go there next time."

i think we say next time alot.

so today was next time.


the food was good. everything is organic, down to the apple juice in the kids meal.

ak went with a grilled cheese

they have a playscape/waterscape too. T and I think its more filling than p terrys and I think its tastier. and they have really good root beer.


we went home and gave him his gifts, a tea set, and a wand filled with glitter and confetti suspension (he has a tiny little one already)



whats funny is that the playscape had this sign that said rules : for ages 3-12
(not that any parent follows rules when it comes to playscapes)

oh, and the playscape at terraburger is pretty amazing. amazingly built too.

tattoo you


chilimac is starting to give theese smiles. they just melt my heart!

here is mama giving baby some floor time


so i have been wanting to get a tattoo since i was in high school but could never figure out exactly what i wanted. long story short,...i finally figured it out.

may i present my new tattoo!

new eagle tattoo

I got this at blindside tattoo where they are all about meso american art and mexican american culture. They even gave me a wife beater since it was my fist time. la raza!

yes. it hurt. alot. and yes, ak wants a tattoo now too. a grandfather clock tatoo on his arm. I am going to get him some temp tatts. should be fun.

it looks amazing in person. not as amazing as the expression on my parent's faces right now, but still pretty rad.

heres your moment of chilimac....

now to ak's exploits...

i turned around and found AK on the top of his little house. Turns out that he thought it needed a new roof and was working on it. This is because our neighbors were putting on a new roof and so of course, ak wants to do the same.

chilmac likes her little bouncer. its a no-no to hardcore montessorians because it gives the baby a false sense of weight, gravity... or something like that. dont quote me. I love the way baby girl moves around in it

quotes, toes and goal


Chilimac received high marks on her recent ninja assesment. Mainly due to the fact that her hair is blacker than black and that the gap between her big toe and the other toes is big enough to hold not one, but two throwing stars. She will however not be going to ninja training camp due to the fact that she is only 2 months old.


ak's soccer goal is complete!

it took awhile because i was slowly collecting the wood for the project of craigslist or from friends. I already had the netting from a past project where we setup a temporary fence, and i think i spent 20 bucks for screws and fittings. i wanted to spray paint the net white, but that would have cost 30 dollars for paint.


after i showed it to him he said and i quote, "i want to play baseball!"


speaking of quotes....

jay leno, err..conan obrien should have a sketch were he reads an AK quote of the week.

AK does yoga at his school. its pretty amazing to walk in on a class of kids doing the "tree"pose .

anyway, were at home and ak says, "hey dad, i can do the downward dog." oh yeah? how do you do it i ask. "you bend over....and you urinate".


in the kitchen eating dinner. Ak looks at chilimac and proclaims, "i dont want a baby girl, i want a baby boy...mom, i want you to put her back in your tummy!"

at the dinner table..T has this way of asking questions like," Would you mind to wash the dishes." and i hate that style of questioning. i always say, "just tell me to wash the dishes!" or shell say stuff like this, to ak at dinner, "do you want to eat your green beans?" and i look up in amazement, cuzz i know where this is going and sure enough ak replies with ...and i quote..."no, thanks for asking though!"


one day were in the bathroom and he's sitting on the toilet and hes singing this song that i have never heard before. "its a bad day, its a bad day" he just keeps repeating it over and over to a melody. and i ask him, why is it a bad day??? and he stands up, points at the toilet and says, "cuss i got diahrea!!"


he didnt really have diahreah...i figured out that he knows that if you have diahreah you have to go to the bathroom alot. so he uses this as a way to get out of bed. so every night he tells me that he has to go (cuss he has diahrea) just so that he can get another minute or two out of the bed until i see that he has normal poop as usual.
