The Big Visit

I'm not sure were the time has gone, but I am finally getting around to posting pictures from our big weekend (May 18th). Uncle Anthony (my brother) graduated from UW Stevens Point and we visited with family before the big day. Ava had a great time with the kitty and Grandma and Grandpa - not to mention her Great Aunt Terri and Cousin Amber. I am more than a little upset that with all of the pictures I took, I somehow missed taking one with Terri and Amber - if anyone has one that they can send to us, it would be very much appreciated!!!!

It was wonderful to see everyone and spend some good, quality time with the family. Special thank you to G & G for your hospitality over the weekend!

The Barn

I found this barn and barn animals with a tractor at a garage sale - a $5 bargin! It has been something different for Ava to play with. I was distracted packing some things up a couple feet away and the next thing I know Ava is saying "Eh - Eh". She opened the barn doors, crawled through and got a bit stuck!
Good stuff!

Busy Growing Up

Ava likes to feed herself - sometimes I try to help more than she would like, but in these pictures she wrestled the spoon away from me so she could get to the applesauce herself. She's a bit messier than when I feed her, but I guess it is good for her to want to do this on her own!

We are taking a day off from going to the Y to go to Toddler Tuesday at a local museum. They have many activities for kids to do and I am hoping Ava has a good time.

We're Back!! Happy Mother's Day!

We had intended on having a picnic today, but the weather just didn't warm up like we were hoping.

We went to Rochester for a little shopping and so Ava could play at the playland at the mall. She was having a great time! Our adventure ended as soon as she ran out of the playland and down the mall hallway - YES, SHE RUNS - the little stinker!
