Easter Trip to New Mexico

Sorry it's been so long since I posted! It's been on my to-do list for almost a week. As you might imagine, life is pretty busy around here. Last Monday (during Easter week), we went to the temple visitors center with some non-member friends. We had originally gone to see the Easter Pageant, but none of us thought about the fact that it was family night and wasn't being performed...
The rest of the pictures are from our trip to New Mexico to be with Justin's family for Easter. It was Carrie's first road trip and first time out of Arizona. Because the trip is 6 hours long and I didn't know how well Carrie would tolerate it, I sat in the backseat so I wouldn't have to reach back everytime she needed something. However, she was a breeze! She was alseep within a couple minutes of hitting the road and only woke up when I changed her diaper half way through the trip when we stopped for lunch. She ate and went right back to sleep for the rest of the way. :)

Pretty Easter Dress

Justin said she looks like a little Easter egg

Didn't quite catch a smile, but what a cute dress :)

Riding on Daddy's shoulders... she was happy for about two seconds

As of now, Justin is still searching for a job. He applies for a couple more every day. So far all of the interviews he's had haven't been productive, but we're still crossing our fingers. I will be shadowing a nurse at a clinic tomorrow and Friday for one of my temp agency jobs. The best part is I get paid for the training! I hope they'll have work for me. I'm not excited about leaving Carrie but at least I don't have to leave her with a babysitter. She'll be with Justin, my sister, or my mom the whole time. :)

Carrie is absolutely an adorable little baby. One of the cutest I've seen. I'm glad she is good on road trips. Katie Marie always did really well also. She still does. I think our longest road trip has been 15 hrs. Only stopping for gas and lunch. I still don't know how she keeps herself so content, but somehow she finds entertainment.

She's a cutie! We enjoyed having you all here for Easter and especially seeing how Carrie is growing and changing. She is a good baby! Good luck Justin in all your searches. You are in our prayers every day. Love Nana
