Josh and Morgan

David had the honor of marring one of his best friends last month! How awesome is that! Every time he speaks (in public...not always at home haha) I'm just amazed at how much of a gift God has given him! He made it so personal! (Sorry for the bad pictures, it was dark and I was trying to take pictures without being that annoying picture person!)

David and Josh
Checking out the cake...mmm it was so yummy!Look how handsome he is!!!
The reception was "game" themed with games all over the place! Such a cute idea to get your gest to interact with eachother....plush no Bible major (yes both of them are bible majors) wedding isn't complete without a game of bible pictionary!!!
The game center pieces! Everything was in the shape of hearts, or words spelling out love...
Battle ship with hearts!

Sending off the newly weds!
Congrats Josh and Morgan!!! Welcome to the married people club! Thanks for letting us be apart of your beautiful day! Thank you Garrett and Stacy for watching Ava so we could have a afternoon and wedding child free!!!

Lisa's Graudation

In May Lisa (my mother in law) graduated with her master in education from ACU. I was so nervous about taking Ava, because it was during nap time and everyone knows how fun graduations can be! We were all shocked how well she did! I didn't have to walk around with her till about the last 30 mins of the 2 1/2 hour graduation! These pictures are just with my camera...I took my dad's nice one so that we could have close ups but I haven't been able to upload them yet.
David and his Dad (Pops)
Ava and Daddy!
Remember how I said that Ava did really good during it... it's more like she LOVED it!!! One of her favorite things to do is to cheer yelling "YAAAAAAAYYYYYYY" while clapping like a crazy person. Well that is what she did EVERYTIME someone cheered for the love ones!!! She had everyone around us laughing at...I mean with her!
Grammy and PopsDavid and his parents
Ava NOT into pictures!
I love this picture of them walking to the cars!
Poor thing was so sleepy afterwards. We drove to lunch and she was so out that she slept in my lap the whole time we waited and ate! David and I are so blessed to have such a easy going baby! Congrats Lisa we are so proud of you!!!

Have you noticed I don't have many pictures of Ava's face?!? So frustrating! Summer has started!!! And our back yard is proof! Ava loves to be do I when it's not a million degrees outside! Our newest addition to our backyard is a turtle sandbox! Ava loves it! This sandbox has a little ring of water around it which just makes the sandbox a bigger mess!!! but even more fun!Side note to other parents of sandbox kids! Tip on getting the sand off of hot little kids is to put a little baby powder on your hand and then dust them off! For the ears put a little bit of baby oil on a q-tip and clean!
Penny is even enjoying the sandbox too! MMM sandbox water is yummy!

A day in the life of Ava Kate

I will never understand why kids LOVE boxes so much!?! It doesn't matter the size or shape of them ALL kids LOVE them! This is the story of Ava and her box! haha
Hmm I must play in this box even is it frustrates me so much that I have to have a fit about it because I can't get out of it!
Hmm that fit wasn't bad enough so I think I will get back into the box!
Ok I think I have finally mastered the box!!!
If I hid under my blanket and laugh my head off maybe mom won't find me!!!HELLO world here I am!!!
David and I have noticed lately that we are having to really start the "parenting" part of raising a child. NOT fun! I rather go back to the time when it was just have fun and play! Anyways since we have started "parenting" we have noticed that she she is mad she will put her hands on her hips, or cross her arms and give us this look!!! What a little turkey!!! She is stealing "THE" look from our "parenting"!!! Every now and then she will even add a foot stomp!!! Oh the things pick up from their parents!!!

Take me out to the ballgame!

A few weeks ago we had a small group get together at the baseball field for dinner and a "game" of softball. We are so blessed to have a group of friends who love our child SO much. It's hard sometimes being the only one with a kid, but at the same time Ava is so blessed to have so many "aunts" and "uncles". Ava is one LOVED child!!!
Aunt Stacy playing with Ava,

Like I said in the last post I LOVE Easter! The past few years we have had to spend it at LTC. This year we spent the weekend with LTC but was able to go to church back at South Mac! Ava loved her Easter basket! This year she got a Bunny, some books, a egg shaped magnadoodle (sp?) (my dad and I had to google and call for help how to erase it!!!) and some bracelets! She is still wearing those braclets everyday!!!
It's so fun that she is starting to really get into holidays.

On the other hand not so much fun that she doesn't like to take pictures!!!

the best family picture we could get...I'm just going to pretend that she is smiling not screaming!
At least David is willing to take pictures with me!
Terry took Wyat and Ava up to the stage during childrens time! So cute and funny! (sorry for the bad picture)After church we were ready for our Easter egg hunt!!! I love that she finally caught onto finding eggs!

Look mama I got lots of eggs!!!

I'm slowly catching up...but so much more to go! Enjoy the pictures!
