birthday extravaganza....

>> Wednesday, July 1, 2009

so it makes for a couple of crazy days when your baby girls birthday is the day before yours! it seems like we have been going nonstop for the past few days and it has been so much fun! had to share just a few snappy pics from the birthdays :)
we bought ava a kitchen set for her birthday complete with a mixer, cookie tray, cookies, and spoons. she loves it and has bee playing with it non stop! maybe she'll be a chef?

she also got the matching refrigerator from her grams and popo. the whole set looks sooooo darn cute!
this girl loves water...playing in it, swimming in it, walking in it, splashing in it...it doesn't matter. we went to dinner over at my mom's house and ava was playing in the sink...i think she is just way too cute for her own good!
my brother was in town for business, so he spent the evening with us! so much fun for ava to have her uncy d with her on her birthday. not sure how often that will happen! it was so much fun to see them together. they are watching star wars here...who knew my girl would like star wars?! it was also a treat watching them play together! dathan is very entertaining and ava had such a great time playing with him! i so wish he and his fam lived closer so she could know him better...he is such an awesome brother and just the best uncle in the world! and how great is it that he actually got snuggles?! i mean, this is a rare occurance...ava is sooooo not a cuddler, but she sat with him several times...i loved that he got this special time with her! i hope he soaked it all up!
here she is blowing out the candles! we had to do this several times...another new favorite!
and now onto my big day! it was pretty mellow. ava decided to wake up early...she must have wanted to celebrate :) we hung out around the house. bo bought me flowers and then told me to go get whatever i wanted for my birthday...not sure i will ever hear those words again...especially after i ran with them...straight to fort worth camera & supply! ha! anyway, i upgraded my camera and got a new lens! this is quite an excellent pair and i am sooooooooooo excited to figure out all the ins and outs of the camera and hopefully get some great shots! he is so good to me! bo had to work, so ava and i headed over to my dad & maryann's for dinner. d met up with us again, yay! i have been totally spoiled with his company...i hate to see him go...but he must return to colorado...that baby boy could be here any day & i'm pretty sure his baby girl is missing him terribly! so we had some more good food, good conversation, ava played monster with uncy d, and then it was time to head home! it has been a great few days.
isn't she gorgeous?! i think i'm in love!
xoxo,
a
