I haven't been successful in getting a pic with the desired results, but I'm sure an opportunity will come along soon enough...
Once Scott came back last weekend, we had a quick trip to the park. Ava was good on the small playground, but then she was ready to take on the big kids playground. She was totally flirting with a little boy that was there...what a surprise! :)
Check out that static!
And apparently, in the rest of our time, all we do is eat. And not even healthy stuff...look at this: Peeps! Popsicles! What the heck are we thinking??
Her first Peep...
Mommy had to take deep breaths with this one...don't they make non-messy popsicles?
Ava loves to run around naked before her bath...this night, apparently she was going to the beach. She's all set with her towel and my Tevas. Who needs a swimming suit anyway?
Honestly, this picture is more for my enjoyment. For some reason, Ava's placement of Elmo and the bunny in the chair made me giggle. I thought it looked like Elmo was lecturing the bunny. Scott thought it looked like Elmo was trying to get it on with the bunny. It's the little things in life, right? :)
I leave tomorrow morning for my first business trip in almost 3 years. I'm staffing a travel event in Palm Springs, CA, for one of my clients. I have mixed emotions about leaving...I'm really excited to be traveling somewhere new, but at the same time, I'm going to be away from home for 8 days. After tonight, I won't see Ava (and Scott) again until the morning of April 27. That just seems so far away. I know it'll be fine, but my heart is breaking just a little at the thought of it. Plus, I'll be away from them on my birthday - yeah, I know, I'm a big girl now, and it really shouldn't matter, but it kinda does in this case. Oh well, I'll shake it off and make the best of it. Hopefully I'll get some great pics from the desert!
