Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

Travel Tips

(i.e. tidbits gathered while traveling with a pre-schooler and a two-month-old!)
  • Brand-name diapers really do hold more than generic store brands! (I'm more thankful than ever for coupons and diaper deals on the name brands!)
  • Baby wipes left in the car freeze (becoming a solid block!) when the temperatures drop to the teens.
  • Canned goods can become slushy at low temperatures.
  • Laundry detergent also becomes slushy at low temperatures.
  • Denim travels well and is a huge blessing especially when you've downsized from a Suburban to a Toyota Camry, have a baby in diapers, and have to keep tabs on laundry!
  • McD's makes a good latte and currently includes a coupon for a free Fruit & Maple Oatmeal on the cup!
  • Fixed tables in restaurant booths aren't conducive to comfortable nursing.
  • Babies "R" Us lives up to its name by providing a Mother's Room!
  • Sleep deprivation and patience with pre-school immaturity seem to be inversely proportional.
  • God is good all the time! His grace is amazing  and sufficient for every situation!
