Block Party BBQ

We've lived in our neighborhood for 6 years now, and honestly hardly ever talk to or see most of our neighbors. So this year a friend hosted a neighborhood block party BBQ. It was fun to meet everyone.

Ava and Marin

Yummy food!

Ava dancing with the big girls.

All the kiddos had fun playing tag and soccer.

Jon would hold Ava and swing her really fast to kick the ball.  She loved it!

Lego Land

After SeaLife we went next door to Lego Land. We got to ride two rides which she enjoyed.  Other areas were the "build your own car" race way, the Lego kitchen, design a building, Lego City, Lego master class, and a 3D movie. Ava thought the Lego's were "ok", she mostly enjoyed playing in the large jungle gym they had.

We decided to check out the aquarium again since Ava's a little older, plus she's obsessed with Nemo. Oh, she loved it! It was so fun watching her mesmerized by the fish.

Ava and Jon at the touch pool.  She was still a little to scared to touch anything.

Look who wasn't scared of the photo bubble this time!!


They had a new exhibit this year.  Giant crustaceans!  Look at the size of this crab and lobster!

Ava telling all the kids, "It's Dori!"

You can just see it on her face that she's loving it.

Octonauts photo op!  We were bummed we missed the characters.

Jon trapped in the aquarium!

Squirt Gun

One of your new pool toys this year is this squirt gun, or water canon as Ava calls it.  She hasn't quite got it down how to fill it with water so I have to do it for her, over and over and over!  She also thinks it's hilarious to squirt me, especially when I'm dry and the water is freezing!

"Whoa!  So cool!"

"Im going to get you Mom!"

Pool season is in full swing and Ava is loving it! She's more brave than last year, and sometimes wants to jump in the deep. I've taken her in without her puddle jumper and boy she can kick!

Too cool for the pool!
