Petaluma Here I Come, Right Back Where I Started From...

So, a couple weeks ago I decided that I needed to get out of Utah. What better place to go than home for Easter?? I only told my siblings so that it could be a surprise for my parents. Susannah picked me up at the airport on Thursday evening and took me to my parents house. We walked in the door and into the family room. My parents thought that I was Jennifer at first, and then just stared at me with their mouths wide open! It was hilarious! Took them a few minutes to register and then they finally gave me a hug!

This is me with my nephew Andrew, he's just the cutest little smiley thing!
My brother, Lyle, with his daughter, Kathrynn at the annual Torrens Easter Egg Hunt.

Easter afternoon with Lyle, Andrew and dad.
Mom with Kathrynn, Michael, Susannah and Izabella.

Jenn and Chris, they were pretty funny and neither one would give up the chair!

It wouldn't be a trip home if I didn't play with my kitties! Asia and Honey...Asia got pretty jealous anytime it seemed that I was giving more attention to Honey!

My parents are so cute!

Susannah and Kevin took me out to their favorite pizza place, it was wonderful!

The day before I left, I went to see Jenn at work in the city. I accidentally got onto the Bay Bridge while I was downtown and took a little trip to Treasure Island. It was just beautiful in the city.

Dad is in charge of helping with the float for the Butter and Eggs Day parade, so I went and helped paint and trace the letters for the float.

I also spent some time leaf blowing and mowing the fields...so fun! Everything was so GREEN and BEAUTIFUL! And hanging with the family was so wonderful...I can't believe how big the kids are getting! If anyone knows of a job in Petaluma...just let me know!
