Almost a month ago now, Craig's parents took us to DisneyWorld and we had an awesome time. I have been to Disneyland in CA tons of times and it has special memories for me. It was so great to experience DisneyWorld for the first time and Aubrey really loved it. Her favorite ride was Pirates of the Caribbean, but she really just liked any ride that had drops (she was disappointed she's not tall enough for Space Mountain). We spent five days there and went to a different park each day. We went to Magic Kingdom again on the fifth day.

Getting ready to watch "It's a Bug's Life"

On the Jungle Cruise (and the jokes were the exact same as Disneyland 10 years ago, but I still love it!)

Aubrey couldn't wait to ride the elevator every day in our hotel. She would run to it all by herself and would jump while riding it up/down.

Aubrey got the best seat while walking around the parks, Nana's lap on her scooter.

One night we ate at a cool restaurant where one entire wall is an aquarium and there is not a bad seat in the place. Scuba divers would go in and wave at you and do funny things.
I wasn't going to post any pictures without people in them, but this was too cool. This hippo was in an aquarium at Animal Kingdom and was just massive. I had never been so close to one before.

Running in/out of tunnel and getting very wet!

On Wednesday, Craig's sister Sarah and her two girls Isabella and Elaina joined us at Hollywood Studios. We had lots of fun with them and Aubrey and Isabella loved the "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" show.

During one of the parades, Mr. Potato Head came right up to them. Of course, Aubrey shook her head "no" at him.

Stepping on the blocks to make different instrument sounds

Group picture in front of Finding Nemo ride (another ride Aubrey really liked)

I just really liked these and have high hopes of Craig doing this in our yard too!

Riding the teacup ride. This little girl joined them b/c she had no one to ride it with.

What a great trip!


I know it has been awhile since I've blogged, so I will do my best to catch up. At the beginning of Sept we went camping for one night. We weren't sure what to expect from Aubrey, but she LOVED it. The only problem was the sleeping at night, or lack of sleeping I should say.

They had several playgrounds there which she loved.

Our view from our tent

One of Aubrey's favorite parts was playing with the tent once it was down

She will find a leaf anywhere, even when you didn't think there were any, and want to carry it around with her

This has become Aubrey's favorite spot. She loves to sit behind our chairs on the screened-in porch.

If Aubrey's bathing suit is sitting out, she always finds it and puts her arms through the straps. She loves to wear it like a purse and walk around the house.

Craig is in big trouble! He started this new thing with Aubrey where she rides on his back. Well, to no one's surprise, she wants to do it all the time! If you're sitting on the floor, she pushes your back over so she can get on. I must admit, it is pretty adorable!

Pool with Bonnie

Aubrey and I went to my good friend, Bonnie's pool before her boys, Avery and Hayden, had to go back to school. We had so much fun!

Swimming with Bonnie

Aubrey loves Avery and he played with her almost the whole time. It was sooo cute!

Blueberry Farm Trip

We did some blueberry picking recently and had such a great time. It was pretty cool to look for those little berries and we're going to make this an annual tradition.

Funny Pictures

One thing about Aubrey, she LOVES slides. Here we are at the park downtown.

Our little munchkin!

Another one of Aubrey's favorite things to do is wear our shoes or slippers around the house. She is surprisingly pretty good at walking in them. She is always pulling them off our feet and then puts her feet in them.

We went from Aubrey playing with Lillie's water bowl... having her own water table.

Sitting at her "big girl" table. Now when I say, "Aubrey, do you want to eat?" She walks to her table and pulls out a chair.
