On a whim, my parents decided to go down south to the LA are to see my brother and visit family down there. Even though we had other commitments here, Aubrey and mom decided to tag along. This was the first time we would be going down to visit uncle Jeremy (even though he has been here several times) and we thought it was about time we went!
On the ride down Aubrey did awesome!! This was the first really long car ride we had taken Aubrey on. She only slept for an hour, but she was content with some new toys and books we had bought for her...not to mention taking in the rich scenery of California's central valley :) We arrived at my aunts house in Montebello around 5ish and were greeted by their friendly dogs (and Aubrey just loves dogs!) and my Marta and Lidia's friendly faces.
That evening we decided to go to Downtown Disney to walk around a bit. The place was so crowded, but it was so good to stretch our legs. The lego store had one of the coolest exhibits there!
All Aubrey wanted to do as we walked downtown was to push her stroller around. She was the only the one that wanted to do the pushing though!! We stayed for the fireworks (even though it was way past Aubrey's bedtime), but her first experience with fireworks was a huge hit! She loved it!
Friday morning we went to Porto's bakery (best bakery EVER by the way!) and met uncle Jeremy. We later went over to Santa Monica beach and spent the day there.
This little lady was not a fan of the sand though however :). Every time she would put her feet in the sand she would pull them towards her and wipe off her feet everytime.
Aubrey got to have some good time with uncle Jeremy on the beach.
We brought along her little IKEA tent to shield her from the sand and sun, but she just wanted to play in it :)
The grandparents had a fun time too.
She loved to get on my dad's back and scratch his back.
By the end of our day at the beach Aubrey was pretty miserable. She had sand everywhere and was wet and cold. Jeremy got some good cuddle time with her because of the way she was feeling. She almost never just lets you hold her like that :)
We decided to go back home that night instead of going out to dinner. Little lady was spent!
The rest of the weekend was spend relaxing and visiting with the family. We had a wonderful time altogether :)
