Festival 2018

The boys performed today at UNLV. Every year all the schools in Clark County prep to perform in front of judges at UNLV. We have been lucky to watch Mote perform each year with Tarkanian and this year we got to watch the 2 little boys. I requested the day off from work but wasn't too optimistic about my request getting approved. Miraculously I got it off! Nic asked me yesterday if I was able to get the day off and he was so excited when he found out that my day off was approved. Ti had to leave back to work today, but was able to catch their performance before he left.
There was a little bit of a fiasco this morning trying to get out of the house on time. Siope couldn't find his black slacks and almost had to wear a pair of my skinnies hahaha. He is so lucky that he finally found them in the nick of time.
I thought their performance was awesome. I was so proud to watch them play. Every time that I've seen them perform I get overwhelmed with a sense of pride and joy. I know how much they enjoy playing and how hard they work. I'm so glad Ti Tonga got to see them perform. It means the world to them to have their dad's support.

Red Rock

Ti's family came to visit a couple weeks ago and we took Siosi & Po hiking at Red Rock.
















Can't believe we've lived here for so long and have never seen this view. Did a lot of huffing and puffing haha, but the view at the end was worth it. So beautiful!!

The boys have exams this week and lucky for them - Ti Tonga's home. He woke up early to make sure they had a hot breakfast before heading to school. This scene makes me so happy.

33

This year I lucked out and got to have Ti home for my birthday again. I remember as my birthday got closer everyone kept asking what I had planned. At first I actually thought about going out with friends to celebrate - ha! Then I thought about just going on a date with Ti Tonga which is what we normally do. But in the end we spent the day together as a family. It was the kid's last day of summer vacation, so it only seemed fitting to spend the day together. 
Every time someone asks me what I want for a gift, I say "food." Haha. I've got so many restaurants bookmarked, but Ti doesn't really like to go on food adventures like I do. I knew since it was my birthday though, that I could get him to go on a foodie adventure with me ;) So Sunday morning we took the boys downtown and hit up Donut Bar --- finally!! We grabbed a dozen donuts then walked over to Container Park and had breakfast on their patio.
The cutest Butter Beer donut
I was so excited for the "Big Poppa Tart" which ended up being my favorite!
There's an actual pop tart in the donut!

After the kids ate, they rushed to the playground. Me and Ti watched them play for a little and then Ti got up and joined them. Container Park is one of mine & Ti's favorite spots. I'm so glad we finally got to take the kids there. I sat and watched them play and was just so grateful for everything that I had. It was a simple morning with the ones I love the most. It was perfect.

Later that day we had dinner at Cheesecake Factory, then came home and put the boys to bed in time for school the next day. I felt a little guilty that my birthday was the only one that Ti was home for this year, which is why I was so happy to share this day together with my family.

Mone & Makai

Mone & Makai came out as soon as school got out. We had a blast together and were so happy they came out to Vegas to spend time with us.
We spent a lot of time cooling off at the pool.
Didn't get any pics of Independence Day, but it was one for the books. We drove out to Pahrump and bought some fireworks and on July 4th we had hot dogs and a firework show out front. It was the best we've had so far! Mone & Makai even got their own Clark County library cards, so they are honorary Vegas kids ;)
