Happy Spring!

Happy Spring! A few weeks ago we got Ava a bike! Boy does she LOVE it! Last night after riding in the car for 7 hours we walked pass her bike and thats all she wanted to do...ride her bike! So we had to go on a short bike ride. This bike is so is a 3 in 1, so she can grow with it!

Oh boy this is going to be fun...why did I decide to put this together while David was napping and Ava is awake with me?!?!

Really?!?! Why do they let guys write instructions?!?!

look mom I can help!

Mom do you REALLY need this piece...I think I'm just going to play with it over here...

Look it's almost ready...
sorry repeat, and I can't get rid of it.

Come on mom...I really don't have to have a seat...just let me ride!!! PLEEEASE!!!
See mom I can help...I'll help you screw things on!

It's about time!!! Thanks mom for making my bike for me!!! I'm never going to get out of it!!!
Wow mom this really is fun!!!
Hmm Dad when do I get my ride so I don't have to walk anymore?!?!--Penny

Happy Spring! We are LOVING this weather and have been on many many bike rides lately!

Stephanie's Wedding

This is a updated post....I just stole this off of facebook. Steph and her bridesmaids.
This last weekend David, Ava and I packed up and headed out to Houston. 7 hours away with a 18 month old...this could be fun...NOT! My cousin Stephanie was getting married, and I was asked to be a bridesmaid. We left Thursday morning around nap time so that she would sleep in the care as much as possible. As we were pulling out of the driveway I ask David "do you know how to get there?" his response..."no I thought you did" oh boy this was going to be a long drive. What did we do before iPhones???

I packed a ton of snacks and would of thought I had never traveled with Ava before, she is such a awesome traveler...I was just worried about the 4 extra hours in the car.

We planned to stop in Temple which ended up being perfect! About 10 mins or so before we got there Ava started to get real fussy. We stopped at a McDondal's and played in the play place...Yes Ava and I played in the tubes! Fun and VERY sticky!

Ok I was going to put these in order but gave up! I hate the way blogger loads pictures!

Here is my bridesmaid outfit! Very green, Navy shoes, and bright pink ended up being pretty cute.

This is Steph and James cutting their amazing cake!

We had such a fun weekend with my family. I got pampered like crazy! (nails, hair, makeup and lots of good food). We made it back last night around 5:30 I think. About 30 miles out of Abilene the nice little gas light came on with nothing around!! but we made it! We also on stopped once for food and didn't even get Ava out of the car! I couldn't believe how well she did!!! And she was awake most of the trip home and didn't fuss once! We have the perfect baby!!!
