First, just a couple cute ones from Easter. I know this feels like it was forever ago (and it was), but I still wanted to share. We had a great day celebrating with both sides of the family.
Below is Mimi giving Aubrey Rose's her Easter basket from Mimi and Big Papa. Thank you for spoiling Aubrey Rose! We were quite surprised with how much she loved the egg hunts. What surprised us the most though was how quickly she realized the eggs were not as much fun to find if they were empty. Hilarious! She would find an egg, open it, if it had NOTHING, she would drop it on the floor and go for the next. If it had a treasure, her eyes would light up, look up at anyone near and say "OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" and smile...it was priceless! Holidays sure are fun with little ones!
Our favorite Clovis event, which we look forward to EVERY year, is the Clovis Rodeo. It was soooooo much fun. This year was even more fun because we got to experience it with the Miss California Rodeo Salinas!!!! Blake's sister Blair, was a busy lady and looked phenomenal at every event! This year she got to ride in all the grand entries, be in the Clovis parade and just bring so much joy to all of Clovis. I think the best part for her was being able to relax and enjoy every second and not having to worry about the competition aspect, but to be Salinas Rodeo Queen. It was fun to sit with her and hear all the behind the scenes stories. She even had a handful of people think she was Miss California...the one who ran for Miss USA recently. Random people complimented her and thanked her for standing up for her beliefs and for protecting traditional marriage! Pretty entertaining! Aubrey Rose LOOOOVED the Rodeo too. She loved all the action. It is a good thing because this is just the beginning for her. :) She is on her way to Mutton Bustin for sure!
Here is Aubrey Rose and Miss California Rodeo Salinas Queen! We are sooooooooooo very proud of you Blair!

We love going out to the Clovis Rodeo parade. It is such a fun family event. This year was even more fun because Blair was in it and so was Bradley! Blake's brother drove his Mustang and Blair was sitting pretty as the Queen. It was so fun to see them!
Blake loved the VW section of the parade. We thought we should have pulled out his bug to show it off!
Brad (Blake's brother) drove his "baby" in the parade too. His is the Mustang and his old roommate (behind him) drove his big truck in the parade too. There were tons of floats all representing good 'ole Clovis businesses, fire trucks spraying water and making their sirens go, Navy and Army representatives, lots of fun cars and so much more. It was a wonderful morning and the three of us had a wonderful time joining in on hometown fun!
