Time to Jump: Kids Trampoline Review

Posted by: | 1 Comment


Jumping. Why do kids love to do that so much? Like most kids, Vanessa was hooked as soon as she mastered the skill. Lately, she’s been jumping the three stairs that separate the level of our house where her room is from the one where ours is. She thinks it’s the most awesome thing in the world! Me? Not so much. I always worry she’s going to get hurt. So when I got the opportunity to review the Bounce andRead More ...

Oh what a difference 24 hours makes! El martes hizo calor (lo cual es raro para Denver a finales de octubre). Hoy miércoles nos levantamos a esto. Pienso tomar otra foto mañana que saldrá el sol y la nieve desaparecerá tal cual llegó. Prometo compartirla. ...

Wordless Wednesday: La Mariposa

Vanessa, el nombre de mi hija, significa mariposa. No wonder she loves them so much. El domingo fuimos al Butterfly Pavillion, un lugar maravilloso donde tienen miles de mariposas sueltas de todos los tamaños y colores volando por todas partes.

Sometimes I use that as an opportunity to expose her to our culture in a fun way. Well, the other day she asked me what kind of stuff I used to watch on TV. When I found “El Chavo del 8″ DVDs at Walmart, I knew I had to getRead More ...

Posted by: | 2 Comments


In honor of National Taco Day, (which was yesterday, but since I didn’t even know it existed, I think it’s okay that I’m a day late) I figured I’d share with you the delectable tacos I’ve been stuffing myself with for the last three months at the awesome food truck setup right outside my downtown Denver office! Although my fave street taco by far is al pastor, I haven’t really found any (just yet) that truly taste like the onesRead More ...

Preparing for the Flu Season with Walmart

Posted by: | No Comments


Flu season is upon us and in my house that usually means we take a lot of precautions because my daughter has asthma which can complicate matters very quickly if she gets sick. Although we don’t know yet if her little brother will suffer the same fate, we like to be extra careful this time of year. So beside getting the flu vaccine prior to the start of the season, we also take other precautions. The easiest way to avoidRead More ...

I was lucky enough to be in Miami two weekends ago and I went twice to what has become my favorite Peruvian restaurant: Ceviche 105 in downtown Miami. Do you know what these are? ...
