Meeting Baby Charlie

I'm just a week late with this post, but better late than never, right?  On Memorial Day, Scott, Ava and I drove out far west of the cities to visit our friends Erik, Megan, and baby Charlie!  Charlie isn't very old (just over 3 months), and he is just adorable!  We were telling Ava all about Charlie, so she was ready to see him when we got to their house.  Of course, she was quickly distracted by their large front porch, and the insane amount of land they have.  So jealous...

At this point, they definitely didn't play together, but Ava sure did have fun climbing the stairs, playing with Charlie's toys, and generally, just being a toddler on-the-go.  I remember the days when Ava was 3-months and she couldn't go anywhere.  Why were we so anxious for her to start being mobile??

It was great to FINALLY see Megan and Erik's house - they've lived there for almost a year (make that TWO years - I'm not sure where my last year went!), and this is the first time we've made it out there.  It's amazing how having a child changes how easily you can visit friends.  But, now that most of our friends have kids, everyone seems to understand.  It ain't easy being a parent, that's for sure.  Right before we were getting ready to leave, I remembered to whip out the camera and capture a bit of the action.

 I think she was putting the pig down for a nap...

Reading with Erik

At least Charlie is looking at the camera!

Ava loves to climb onto our bed, and hide in the pillows.  Goofy girl!

As for this past week, this is the busiest I have been in years.  In five days, I managed to pack in: a trip to the driving range (gotta practice that swing), a birthday dinner, a drinking party while AT work (yes, that's right AT work, and during work hours even!), an Uppercase Living party, a breast cancer fundraiser (I won at the silent auction - yes!), a movie with Scott, an ungodly amount of errands, and another movie with my friends.  Oh, and of course, I worked full time (minus the drinking hours :) )  Needless to say, I was quite happy to come home tonight and not have any plans.  Frankly, I'm tired.  It was fun, but I don't know how often I could do all of that stuff.

Have a wonderful night!

Ahhh... yes, drinking while at work. I do miss that company once in awhile! Haha!

make that almost 2 years we've lived out here! Hard to believe we moved when Ava was just a month old - where has the time gone?
