Hello Ava fans! We are loving our “mini vacation” at my sister and her husband’s house in St. Louis. Ava is really having the best time of her life. If I think too hard about how normal she is I will break down I’m sure of it. She is trotting everywhere and has really let her guard down. The only thing I have noticed is that she still walks like an old lady. She takes her time and watches her every step on the ground. I suppose that is she needs to do to feel safe.
Here is a few pictures of Thursday after we got here. Amanda and Jason (my sister and brother in law) have made a gorgeous pond in their backyard, with a water fall. It is just beautiful and we are really enjoying it. (We have a small pond at home with 9 fish but nothing like this one!) The have 2 huge fish named “Elvis” and “Priscilla”. Plus a whole bunch more. Her pond plants well lets just say I am super jealous!

Sister love! She missed her sisters for the two days before we got here.
The relaxing sound of the waterfall just took me away! The kids love to pet the fish. They come right up and let them feel them!
Yesterday we went to my other sister Tina and her husband’s house. What a great celebration we had! We were leary of the forecast for today so we just went ahead and did it yesterday. So glad we did. Here is Ava with my parents.
Mr. Freddy you are just too cute!
And of course Tina’s dog, Patches!
I LOVE this picture.
Miss Ava loved this game!
She actually got pretty good towards the end of the night!
Tree house fun!
“Alright you guys, these fireworks are WAY too loud!”
