Farmers Market

After Ava did her craft, we walked over to the farmers market. It was such a nice day out.  They had a fountain for the kids to play in and there were street musicians as well.  Ava enjoyed dancing to the music.  I picked up some tomatoes, salsa, homemade peanut butter truffles, and apples.  Ava loved the apple.

KookieDoodle Crafts

I took Ava to this cute craft store called Kookiedoodle. They have pre-assembled craft projects that you can create. Crafts include sand art, paper mache, wood art, felt, etc.  It's pretty nice to have all the supplies set out for you and to leave the mess there!

Lots of fun "embellishments" to choose from!

Ava decided on a wood project.  A dragon of course, lol.

Adding the embellishments.  She chose a wing, a hair bow, and a girly eye.

The finished project!

Dance Class

This week Ava had her very first dance class! She's enrolled in a "rhythm and movement" class, which is the very basics for ballet and tap. It was a success. She ran right in and picked her little "x" to stand on and was dancing around in front of the mirror. That's all I got to see though! They don't allow parents in the room during the lesson. It was driving me nuts that I couldn't peek in and see what they were doing, and take pictures. Luckily, they will have one class that is a parents viewing class in October. After class ended she ran out and was so happy. I love seeing her having fun and involved in something she really enjoys.

Annual Husker Pics

First game of the season!

My sister got this cheerleader outfit for Ava when she was born.  She's finally big enough to wear it!

We made it to the zoo for a fun playdate. Last year, Ava was very scared at the zoo. She cried most of the time, especially at the exhibits with glass windows. This year she LOVED it! She couldn't get enough of the animals. Her favorites were the polar bear, gorilla, and giant turtle. My favorites were the polar bear, seals, and penguins.

Ava was calling the polar bears "White Teddy Bears."

I love seals and penguins!  I could watch them all day.

These two were so cute.  Little friends!

The whole crew.

Ava was singing, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" to this turtle, lol.

Love the cats too

Ninja Skills

Ava is so funny.  Lately she's been grabbing items and pretending she's a ninja.  In this video she's using her toy frying pan.  She's also used a fairy wand.  It's pretty entertaining.  She's so serious.  At the end of the video she yells, "I Diiid IT!"
