WooHoo For Spring - Easter, Ponies & Chimps!
April has been a blast so far. I have been busy on the road this spring, but in between these stretches, Aubrey and I have been doing tons of fun stuff. We really have so much fun on the weekends that we have fun hangovers on Monday morning. Aubrey almost couldn’t get out of bed to go to school this Monday. I’m like, “Oh my God! You’re FOUR! Suck it up kid!”
Easter was super fun. We had fun finding eggs and candy from the Easter Bunny at our house and then we went to the Mountain Gate Country Club with some preschool friends of ours for brunch, an egg hunt, games and golfing! It was Aubrey’s first time golfing and she LOVED it!
Then this past weekend we attended two wonderful events. On Saturday was the My Little Pony Bridle Shower party to celebrate the Friendship Is Magic “Royal Wedding” episode coming up on the Hub network on April 21, 10am PST. Aubrey just discovered My Little Pony and, naturally, she’s hooked. She’s a 4 yr old girl – DUH. The party was amazing with a flower bouquet making station, mini wedding cake decorating with The Butter End bakery (cakes were DELICIOUS!), yummy snacks and drinks and a pre-view screening of the wedding episodes. We had a blast!!
Then on Sunday, we attended an advance screening of the new Disney Nature documentary Chimpanzee which opens nationwide this Friday, April 20 which also happens to be Earth Day weekend… awww!
We loved the film and the footage the filmakers captured is really unbelievable. I wouldn’t recommend the film for children under 3 or 4 yrs as there are some intense fight and hunt scenes amongst the animals. You be the judge on how much intensity your child can take. But there is no gore or graphic violence.
Aubrey had the honor of being photographed wearing a special new “Chimpanzee” inspired necklace by designer Alex Woo. These necklaces feature the image of “Oscar,” the star of “Chimpanzee,” and 20% of the profits from the sale of these necklaces will go the Jane Goodall Institute. Aubrey was very proud to pose for these pictures and it was an easy way for her to help the chimps! If you’d like to purchase a necklace, there is a selection of styles in different price ranges at www.AlexWoo.com.
I hope your spring is as happy as ours!
This weekend we’ll be heading down to America’s Family Pet Expo in Costa Mesa to hang out with Bridgette aka as “Stella” the French Bulldog from Modern Family, and see all the great animals and exhibits! Maybe we’ll even pick up something special for Bob Barker. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE send me strength not to adopt another dog while we are there. PLEASE!

EASTER EGG HUNT!!
This is the school Easter egg hunt at Aubrey’s preschool today. Forgive my crappy camera skills on this one – it kind of turned out like the Blair Witch Project of Easter, but I was busy getting the point across to Aubrey that she had to grab as many eggs as possible before everyone else got them. See, my child was born without ANY sense of urgency whatsoever. I have no idea where this comes from. Seriously. I’m never not in a hurry. Anyhoo…. it’s pretty darn cute, so I hope you enjoy this little slice of our lives:
Wubbzy's Egg-Cellent Easter on DVD!
I recently started playing Santa and Easter Bunny now that Aubrey is old enough to get the concept and her father poisoned he mind with the idea that they are “real” so… I’ve been on the look out for non-candy basket ideas. Don’t worry, little person is getting plenty of sugar, I just felt there should be something else too.
Anchor Bay Entertainment’s new Wubbzy’s Egg-Cellent Easter DVD not only uses the time honored “egg-cellent” pun in it’s title but it’s really cute too. Aubrey LOVES Wow Wow Wubbzy and this DVD features 6 full episodes of Easter themed animation: Eggs Over Easy, Big Bunny Blues, Flower Day Parade, Watch The Birdie, Wubbzy Bounces Back and The Flight Of The Flutterfly.
The DVD also includes coloring and activity sheets and a music video! So quick, grab it before this weekend. I just saw it in Target stores for only $7.99!! Wow Wow!
