Doo Dad Mike Concert

After the kids played at Wonderscope we went to the kids concert. The performer was Doo Dad Mike. The last time we went here, we saw Mr. Stinky Feet and Ava had a blast dancing. This time was no different. She had fun dancing around with the kids to his music.



Busting a move, lol.

Wonderscope

Ava and Crosby had an awesome time at Wonderscope.  Ava loved the Vet room.  She sat at the desk for quite a while pretending to take calls.  She also liked giving the animals a check up.  The craft room was also a big hit as well as the water room.

Dance Class Parents Viewing

It was the moment I've been looking forward to!  The parents viewing, so I can see what Ava's been up to in dance class.  Wow, it was...CHAOTIC!!  Haha!!  I think the parents threw a lot of the kids off.  Ava was a bit distracted with me in there as well.

They started with stretching, then "Here We Go Loopty Loo."  After that they did some ballet poses and pliĆ©'s.  The kids were getting really distracted so they played a song to get the wiggles out.  Then they did tumbling where the kids did rolls, frog jumps, bunny hops, bear crawls, and crab walks.  They played Freeze Dance to "Let it go".  Finally they ended with a couple tap dancing routines.

She did a good job on the group dances.  The tap dancing was my favorite!  Too cute!

Fall Leaves

We have a love/hate relationship with leaves. They are beautiful when they change colors. It reminds you the cooler air is coming. And it's fun to play in them! It's not fun to rake them up though! 

 
These leaves were at the park.  The kids had a lot of fun running through them, and having leaf fights.






Pinecones!

Park with Crosby

 
We met up with Crosby for a fun play date.  The park was really cool.  They had a lake area with a fountain and pretty trails.  There were two playgrounds and one had little house that was designed to look like a little town.

"Hey Girl"


 Look at this little daredevil.  Ava has not mastered this yet!  She did go down the pole, with a lot of assistance.





Childhood bliss  :)



Ava was sad to say goodbye to her friend.

Fire Station

We took Gavin and Ava to the Fire Station open house. Ava was excited, but Gavin was really in Awe!

Look at these cuties!



Gavin was very proud of his Firefighter badge.


Poor Ava, this was a neat experience but I didn't realize how HEAVY that equipment was!  Luckily it wasn't on her long.


Gavin shooting the fire hose.



Giving the fireman a hug



At first Ava didn't want anything to do with the fire hose.  But she wanted a turn after she saw Gavin do it!

Trick-or-Treat

This was Ava's first "door to door" Halloween experience. She was a little "iffy" at first about going up to the doors. She didn't really care for some of the spooky decorations, or the noise makers that were triggered by movement. But, after a couple houses she was pretty much running to the next one!

Turtle Power!
 

Halloween is Jons thing.  This is going to be a Daddy/Daughter holiday.


It was a little difficult for her to see and get up and down the porch steps with her mask on, so we decided to take it off.  Her turtle hoodie took it's place.




After an hour we returned back to the house to hand out candy. Ava LOVED this!!  She sprinted to the door when she heard the doorbells and she was so excited to put the candy in the kids buckets.

Here's a little video with some clips from the Trunk or Treat, school party, and trick-or-treating.
