A few weeks ago a friend of mine here told me about a pumpkin patch we had here locally. So her family and my family all went together. We had a good time. There was a corn maze, face painting, hay ride and lots of farm animals. Ava loved it! Its still soooooo HOT here so we only stayed a few hours. Ava got her face painted. We got a little sunflower on her cheek. She was so good did mind one bit. So also loved the pig they had. Here are so of the pictures from our fun day.!!
This past Saturday we took Ava to Chuck E Cheese for the first time. She absolutely loved it. We had some pizza and she rode so many rides! I had forgotten how "little kid" friendly that place is. Most everything in there she could ride and the kiddy games were great. Of course Lance and I had just as much fun as Ava did. I forgot my camera so these were taken from my iphone. They are not great but still captured the moment for us!! We will definitely be going back!!
Here is my new creation!!! I finally learned to make pants!! This outfit turned out so cute!! I can not wait to start making Ava more outfits. Granny, what do you think?? I know you want it orange and blue, but other than that...LOL. I wish I was closer to you so you could teach me!! Sewing and Monogramming have become my new passion. I love doing this!! Also, if you didn't already know... I do have a website for "Sew Uniquely U" at www.sewuniquelyu.blogspot.com and please find me on facebook too!!
So Ava got a ball pit for her birthday and she has not been interested in it at all,until recently!! Now, I can't keep her out of it. She has learned to turn it over and crawls out the top of it. She thinks its so fun and laughs and laughs. Most of this week I spent picking up 300 balls that she throws all over the house!!! She was in a bad mood earlier... LOL, and then she found her ball pit. I snapped a few pictures while she was playing. She has also learned to hide all kinds of stuff in there. We have found her books, my candles, lance's keys, coke cans, and lance's flip flops!!! She is so funny! Where does she learn this stuff??
We are football ready!! Its only 2 weeks away and we are so excited!! I made Ava several outfits to wear this year!! She looks so cute in all of them. We also have 2 cheerleader uniforms to wear this season. I think its going to be another great year for Alabama!!! ROLL TIDE!!!
This past week we took our yearly vacation with Lance's parents! We had so much fun this year. Last year Ava was only 2 months old when we went so this year was so much more fun with her! Ava loves the beach and chasing the seagulls. We got to the beach on Monday and we went strait to Margaritaville. We needed a drink after driving 6 hours with Ava. The rest of the week we beached it every day!! The weather was perfect!! On Thursday we got our beach family pictures taken. I can not wait to see how they turned out!! We also hit Pier Park and did a little shopping. They have a Carter's there so I could not pass on getting a few things for Ava this fall. Tiffany, Matthew's girlfriend, and I went parasailing! It was amazing! If you have never done it.. its so worth doing. We loved it! Here are so of the pictures from the week. Of course we were so sad to leave, it means summer is over. The only thing we have to look forward to now is Alabama football is starting in a few weeks! And we hope to find out in a few months were we will be moving to.
