Dinosaurs ALIVE!

The kids had a great time at the Dinosaurs ALIVE exhibit.  There were dinosaur replicas that moved and growled, dinosaur rides, mini golf, inflatables, a dig pit, and photo ops.  Ava really loved the mini golf.  So much so that when the weather gets a little nicer we are going to take her to a mini golf course!

Parents Showcase

Ava's studio had a parents showcase as a practice run before March/April competitions. Ava was so cute and did a great job!! Unfortunately, the music cut off short at the end and it really confused the girls, lol!! But otherwise it was great!

Superhero Birthday

Ava had fun at McKenna's 5th Birthday.  It was a superhero theme so Ava went as Bat Girl.  Well, actually she didn't like that name.  She said she was "BatMAN" Girl!  The party was at a gymnastics place so the kids got to swing, jump, climb, slide, etc.  They also had a few superhero obstacle courses as well.

Valentines Cooking Class

We went to a Valentines cooking class and it was a lot of fun. Ava got to make chocolate soda, brownies, and decorate cookies.

The class organized all the ingredients out but they were not proportioned out.  This was great because it gave the kids an opportunity to practice measuring.

Ready for cooking!!

Putting the syrup in the chocolate soda

Neither one of us enjoyed the chocolate soda, lol!

Ava enjoyed just eating the chocolate syrup

Next brownies!  Creaming the butter and sugar


Using her muscles to stir!

The final step

While the brownies were cooking Ava decorated chocolate heart cookies.

Such a fun experience!

Valentines Fun

Ava had fun with our Church play group making Valentines cards for a nursing home. Her favorite "ingredients" (as she called them) were glue and glitter. Haha!!

Ava was so excited for her school party.  Her Valentine to her friends were the pinwheels!

She had a blast checking out all the goodies in her Valentines bag. 

Ava's best girlfriend in the class.  She says she is her "sister."

Ava's best boyfriend in the class.  She says he's her "Sweet Baboo"  (from Charlie Brown!!)

Cookie decorating play date

Ava's finished product!  She didn't seem to realize she could decorate many cookies.  She put every color icing and every topping on one cookie!

Valentines morning.  Hulk smash, puppy, super girl jammies, and books.
