Hot Dogs and Smores

We had a fire in the back yard the other night. We cooked hot dogs and smores. It was yummy and relaxing. Fall is the perfect time for bonfires!

This is what she did when I told her to smile...

Gregg was talking to Ava about the stars. She was loving time with daddy.

A lot like her daddy...

These are a few pictures of Gregg as a child. I definitely see a lot of him in Ava.

A snapshot of our day...

Ava absolutely loves to draw and color.

She spent a lot of her time this morning sitting in the corner of her room with her animals coloring.

Later when I was putting my makeup on, I turned my back for a second and she got a hold of my makeup pallet. This was the result.

This afternoon I decided to make some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Yum!

Later we are going to cook hot dogs over a fire in the backyard. It has been a good day with Gregg only working a half day. He officially has off now for 11 days. We leave Wednesday for Bath. We are very excited. Well that's it for today. I will post more pictures in the next couple of days as well as some of our trip to Bath.
P.S. As I am writing this, I hear Ava saying, "WEEEEE" as she slides down a big box that she has made into a slide. Oh goodness...


Oh my goodness Gregg brought back a wonderful treasure from France. He found this wonderful spread that resembles crunchy peanut butter but is really completely different...pure wonderfulness. As you can see in the picture, the crunchy bits in the spread are cookie.

It is not an overwhelming sweet cookie taste either. I had it on a piece of toast earlier and it was amazing! I have yet to check the British grocery stores to see if I can get this stuff here. YUM!

I love Fall!

Our family is back together again. Gregg has been deployed and Ava and I have been in the States visiting my family. Time passed quickly and thanks to God, we are all safely back together again. Here are a few random pictures of Ava, fall decorations and what we've been up to these last few days (Hint: Dora).

This picture was taken at my parents house. We miss you guys! Thank you for everything!

I told Gregg I cant wait until he tells me that Dora songs play through his head, even at work. THAT will be funny! It will happen. I not only sing along, but sometimes I also dance! Ava is learning to count in Spanish and she says, "Arriba" when she wants up.

We are going to the pumpkin patch this weekend. I will post pictures of the pumpkin patch as well as my decorated pumpkins! Yay fall!

We went to Cambridge today for a day of shopping. It was a lot of fun! Here are a few pictures my friend Rachael took of Ava and me.

Fun in the Sun

We went to a friend's house for a cookout and the kids played in the pool. There was also a bouncy castle. She loved everything! We didn't leave until close to 9:00 P.M. When we made Ava get out of the pool and stop jumping in the bouncy castle, she had a breakdown. Needless to say, she slept wonderfully!
P.S. I feel it necessary to say that the hat she is wearing is indeed a boy hat. My friend let me borrow her son's hat. Normally her hat would be PINK!
