Feelin' pretty good...

I'm feeling pretty proud of myself right now, I got to say! I'm posting two days in a row, not just twice yearly:) I just wanted to put up some pictures from the time that I got home to the time Dennis and Anna came to visit. Zach and I had a week to ourselves and we tried to cram in as much as we could in that time. We went to Connecticut for a day and tried to check out a few local touristy things as well. Aubrey went into the water for the first time and loved it. It was just a shame that we didn't bring our swimsuits or else we could have gone in the water all the way. We also did a lot of random things around the house that we've been putting of for quite some time now. All in all it was a great time spent as a family...still feels weird to say/write that. Aubrey is growing like a weed, laughing, rolling over from back to front and just pretty much an awesome kid all around. Zach barely lets her out of his sights and wants to hold/squish/cuddle/kiss her all the time. Time apart was hard for all of us and that was why it was particularly great to have that week together. Well, enough explaining!! On to the pictures:)

Pretty pleased with herself!


What happened to August????

So a lot has happened in the last few weeks. I've been to Canada and back and a few places in between. Life has been hectic to say the least and thus the lack of posting... not that I need an excuse not to post, I seem to have trouble doing it even when I technically have the time! So like I said, I went to Canada to visit family and friends for what was supposed to be two and a half weeks, but I ended up staying another week because my great-aunt Liese, who was like a Grandma to me, passed away and I wanted to stay for the funeral. I'm glad that I did, but it was hard to be apart from Zach for that long, and even harder for him to be apart from Aubrey! We had a great time seeing people even though it was not enough time to see everyone that we wanted, as much as we wanted, but now we're happy to be home:) Aubrey did great on the flights, there and back and also to Edmonton in between. We went to Edmonton with Zach's mom and aunt to visit Aubrey's great-grandparents, grandma and grandpa Liner. That trip was great too as it turned into a bit of a Liner family reunion and a lot of the aunts, uncle and cousins showed up as well. My sister Astrid and her husband Jo were in Abbotsford with their kids the same time that we were and it was awesome to see them again. They had never met Aubrey so I was pretty eager to show her off! I've been home for a few weeks now and a few funs things have happened in that time, but I'll focus on the trip home in this post and then go from there in the next few. Anyway, I'll post pictures now... keep in mind that I took a few hundred on this trip so bear with me as I try and narrow them down...
