Easter Egg Hunt

Ava was super excited about hunting for eggs this year.  She thought it was the best thing ever!

This is her school egg hunt.  Here she is lined up and eager to get outside.

Getting some help from Grandma

Found one!

In one of her eggs was a ring that flipped open and had lip gloss in it.  She loved that.

Post egg hunt joy ride.  She is super fast on this trike!

Easter Eggs

Ava had fun helping me dye Easter Eggs. She like it so much she kept wanting to do it over and over. I secretly dumped the dye out and filled the bowls with water so she could play longer!

We used brown eggs this year, I think the colors turned out really pretty

MS Walk - Kansas City

Ava and I attended the MS Walk - Kansas City to support my friend and co-worker Chrissy. We had a fun time supporting a great cause.

Chrissy was diagnosed with MS at age 24.  Despite her challenges, she is one of the most positive and optimistic people I know.


The balloon guy made Ava a Nemo fish!  She loved it.

Getting her face painted for the first time.  This is as far as we got, lol.  She kept turning her head and wouldn't sit still.

I was surprised Ava liked the characters.  She was more excited about the pig, it took her a little while to warm up to the dinosaur.

Chuck E Cheese's

My parents, sisters, and I took the kids to Chuck E Cheese. Talk about fun! Actually, I think the grownups had just as much fun, because it reminded us so much of when we were little!

Gavin looking out for Ava.  He says, "Hold my hand Abba" as he walks her to the door.

Ava was a big fan of the carousel.  She rode it 3 times in a row.  So cute.

The rides sure have gotten more fun since I was little!  Ava and Gavin enjoyed all the games and rides.  However, on this visit they didn't like the Chuck E Cheese character that came out to greet the kids.

Getting some help from Papaw!

Cruisin with Gavin.

Like I said, the grown ups had fun too!  KJ racked up 500 tickets for us!

Ava LOVES crafts.  Our house is starting to overflow with craft stuff!  Every time I ask her if she wants to do a craft project she says, "good idea mom!"

Her favorite by far is painting.  Here are some of her latest projects.

Pet Store

Just for fun we stopped in a pet store to look at the animals. 

Ava liked the bunnies, she said, "Aww they are so cute"



She didn't like the bearded dragon.  Dad to the rescue!
