Why eating together as a family is important to me

 This post is sponsored by Dietz & Watson, but all thoughts and opinions are mine alone. When I was a little girl, dinner time was the same every night. My mom would cook a delicious meal and we would sit down together at the dinner table, as a family. My dad was always home in time for dinner and we always sat around the table, ate dinner, and would share our high’s and low’s of the day. As we got…

Our Playroom Reveal

It’s been a little over two months since we moved into our new house and we have been working on each room slowly. A little slower than I had intended, lol. But it’s coming along and I am so excited to share one of my favorite rooms in the entire house… the playroom! We didn’t really have a “theme” for the playroom. I just wanted it to be bright and fun and functional for the kids. I love how it…

Cranio Deuce Family Garcia Family Motherhood

Here we go again…

You may have seen (from Instagram stories) that we’ve spent a lot of time at the hospital this week. I have done my best to be an open book and share as much as possible when it comes to Deuce’s condition, because it’s so rare and I believe in advocacy and raising awareness. But writing this update is excruciating and I have been putting it off for days. I’ve been getting lots of messages from family and friends asking for…

A Little Family Update

Hey friends! It’s been a while since I posted a little family update and it seemed like the perfect time to do so. Yesterday, we took Deuce for a check up and his doctor let us know that his condition has progressed, so he will be seeing his neurosurgeon and plastic surgeon again in the next few weeks. We will also be seeing an optometrist. Besides all that, he’s literally the sweetest and we are so obsessed with him and…

The Strawberry Inn + 10 Things To Do in Strawberry, AZ

Last week we spent three days in Strawberry, Arizona (about 2 hours north of PHX) and had a blast. This trip was different in so many ways and is probably the first “relaxing trip” we have ever taken. We left on Wednesday and stayed until Friday afternoon (Thursday was Deuce’s birthday so it was the perfect excuse to getaway)! We loved that we didn’t have a set schedule and were really just able to explore and enjoy it all. I highly…

2016 Recap + New Year’s Resolutions

2016 was a big year for The Garcia’s. We welcomed a new baby, celebrated milestone birthdays and anniversaries, put our trust in God more than ever before as our son was diagnosed with a serious condition and had to undergo surgery performed by a neurosurgeon and plastic surgeon. We prayed, we played, we fought, we cried, we laughed until our bellies hurt, we traveled, we ate delicious food, we worked our asses off and we enjoyed every second as a…

Family Zoo Day at the Phoenix Zoo

Last week, we took the kids to the Phoenix Zoo and had such a blast! They have such a love for nature and animals, so seeing their faces light up at each exhibit was the best experience. The girls’ favorite exhibits were the frogs, giraffes, and elephants! Funnily enough, Brooklynn was terrified of the Jaguars… even though they were sleeping! She said that they looked like the mean animal in Tarzan, haha! Check out our favorite photos and a video highlighting our…
