Surprise Surprise
A couple weekends ago, Scott and Matt planned a surprise excursion for Whitney and I.  We took this adorable train out to a Christmas tree farm where we could cut down our own tree:)  
The train ride out was beautiful.  We traveled through vineyards and orange groves.  Avery liked the train a lot.  (She always thinks she is so cool when she gets to be in a moving object without being in her car seat.)
When we arrived at the tree farm we were excited to see that there was a petting zoo with the most adorable baby Zebra, a camel, goats, pigs and more.  Avery got to ride this cute little Sheltland pony named Corky.  She was a natural on this horse:)

Dad I found one it's just my size!
Too small?  Alright I will keep looking...
The perfect tree was found and taken down with just two swipes.
What do you think Aves?
She  loved it!

Thanksgiving Time

I was just about to post some of our pre-Christmas adventures but realized I never posted our Thanksgiving pictures. This year we headed down to my parents house for the festivities. It was pouring rain during the boy's Turkey bowl game, so we didn't get to watch:( But we had a super fun talent show as usual after dinner and enjoyed going to the beach the next day:) We also had a great tennis tournament and Scott and I won 2nd place:) Gotta love Thanksgiving:)

A couple of weekends ago we went to Murray Family Farms. This is quite the place. We played in a corn kernel pool, went on a hay ride, got to pick our own fruit (eat it too), and taste test all of the yummy fruit for sale. We went to the petting zoo and the goats really liked Avery (they were trying to bite her shoes off:) They also have an asparagus maze, hay maze and arts and crafts. It was a really cool outing and Avery had a blast. Anyone who comes to visit will have to check it out.
