Visting Jon and Krystal

So Aubrey and I treked out to see Jon and Krystal the week after Easter.  It was Krystal's break from work so we took a break from life in Sacramento to spend some quality time with them :).  We didn't take as many pictures this time, but on one of our first days there we went to the zoo.  We joined Jon's brother and sister-in-law, Nate and Jackie, and their five kids, Josiah, Hannah, Grace, Naomi, and Abe.  We had a great time and Abe just loved to take care of Aubrey :)

Aubrey rode the carousel for the first time with her uncle Jon :)  She wasn't too sure at first, but once she went around a couple of time she was definately a fan!

We also rode an a little train and Aubrey loved to make the "choo-choo" sound.

hmmm...are we related? :)
During the week we also ate out a lot (and at one restaurant Aubrey flung her peas and pasta across the room...really fun time for mom!), went shopping, went to Cabela's to check out the animals and fish, and looked for baby things for the expectant little Fox.  We had a great time together.

Aubrey did great on both flights!  She was, however, sick on the flight back, but luckily the worst part of her stomach flu didn't hit till we got home :(.

Easter 2012

This Easter we spent with the Pierce side of the family.  We went over to Brandon's parent's house where we joined his grandparents, brother, future sister-in-law, cousin Brooke, and my grandparents.  We had a tasty meal, had a little egg hunt, and had a yummy bunny cake. 

Aubrey's great grandparents, Mimi and Corky, gave her a little chicken that sang and laid eggs.  It was a huge hit!

Aubrey got an Easter basket with a ball in it and she had so much fun with it all day.

The dog is still one of Aubrey's favorite "toys."

Aubrey had her first egg hunt :)

She enjoyed putting each egg that she found into a basket.

Aubrey also enjoyed her dairy-free cake and was on a little bit of a sugar high afterwards :) (Note the face)

As always, she took time to smell the flowers.
