I hope everybody had a great weekend! Today I’m sharing with you guys all about our fun, and very quick trip to Sacramento last week! We had so much fun, the girls are still talking about it and wanting to know when we can go back! We went there to visit my college roommate and best friend Gina and her family and we also got to visit with most of my family and extended family too! It was a packed trip!
On the plane with my big girl…Aubrey got her own seat this time, so we did two and two with our seats to make it easier.
When we got there the first thing we did was go to my best friend Gina’s parents house where we would be staying for the trip. My Mom and sister, Jacquelyn, and my new baby niece, Gwen, drove up from Southern California for the weekend and we all had dinner together. It was a fun night…so much fun I forgot to take pictures whoops. Anyways, the food was delicious the company was even better and the girls were ready for bed by 7.
The next day we took the girls to Fairy Tale Town. It was so cute you guys, the whole place was slides and different structures dedicated to nursery rhymes. Apparently my Mom took me there when I was a little girl, but I don’t remember. The girls loved it though!

Sliding down from Owl’s house from Winnie the Pooh! There were tons of slides and even some live animals to see as well.
My aunt came to Fairy Tale town as well, it was so fun to see her with my girls. I remember being a little girl staying at her house and spending so much time with her. Its fun to see it come back full circle 🙂
Later that day the adults got to go out and enjoy the awesome breweries in Sacramento, Dan was in heaven! Of course I forgot to take pictures, but we had a great time!
On our last full day in Sacramento my other sister, Natalie, and brother in law, Robbie, and their kids came down to spend the day with all of us. The girls were SO EXCITED to see their cousins! It has been almost a year since we’ve been together! We started our day with a trip to the Sacramento Zoo while the boys played a round of golf!
My sisters, Mom and me with all our kids!
The zoo was great, it was just big enough to see everything before lunch! My favorite was seeing the giraffes. Aubrey has been obsessed with having me read to her Giraffes Can’t Dance, so it was “giraffe this and giraffe that” the whole time. So cute!
Cousins checking out the giraffes.

My sisters and my Mom, just missing our baby brother, Taylor!
After the zoo we had a great lunch together and got the girls down for a small nap before heading over to my aunt’s house for round 2 of the days festivities.
My aunt and Mom cooked up a feast for the family and I got to visit with my cousins and aunts and uncles, which was so fun. Many had not yet met Aubrey or Madelyn and some had not even met Dan! It was really fun catching up with everybody!
Getting in some much needed auntie time with my sweet baby niece, Gwen!
Just a snap shot of the group that was able to make it to the BBQ. We missed many who couldn’t.
And then at 6AM the next day we were on our way home! Whew….what a weekend! I have been recovering ever since we got back 😉 I am so thankful to my BFF, her parents and my family for making the effort to see us. We had such a great time…and next time we will definitely be coming back for a longer stay!
