Fore! And Four!

It's time for the Masters, which in my past work life meant that I would be working on sending an elite group of people from the automotive industry to Augusta, but now...it means that we get to play mini golf at my work. There were nine different themed holes, created by employees, and the entire company had the chance to play multiple rounds this week. It was par 21 for the course, and my score was 31, so...I just had fun playing. Those with the top score ended up competing in the finals, while we all watched, drank beer/Arnie Palmers, and ended the week on a high note.

This hole allowed two players at a time...the hole is under the stool, which wouldn't be tricky, except it was on a (small) pinnacle...


Also in exciting news...Ava's fourth tooth popped out this week. It was super wiggly, and I was concerned that she was going to swallow it while she was sleeping.  I didn't think the chances of that happening were very high, but yesterday I heard that one of my friend's son just lost his first tooth and he swallowed it while sleeping! So, it could happen. Luckily, Ava's came out while she was awaking and munching on crackers.


I implemented a new rule where the box with the tooth has to stay outside of Ava's room, so the Tooth Fairy doesn't wake her up while she's here.  Based on how the tooth #3 switch went, the TF had requested that change due to the level of light sleeping by Ava.  Ava debated with me until I finally said the TF won't come back if Ava wakes up and sees her. Case closed. And the tooth/coin switch was made flawlessly, without any stress...

Grandma Karen accompanied me and G to get his hair cut on Thursday...seriously, it's like the lady was cutting his head off, he screamed so much. One day, it'll be easy...but, that day is not now! It turned out super cute, so now he's set for his spring pics at daycare!

He decided to wear my running shoes for a bit


Yesterday, Ava and I participated in the Color Run at her elementary school. It's a two mile course through the surrounding neighborhood, and there was colors galore all over the streets. I had to wonder what the homeowners thought about all of the foot traffic and color saturating their lawns.  Ava and I got nailed with more color this year, and with some prompting, we even RAN more of the course this year.  It was fun, chilly, and a good way to spend time doing something active with Ava!

Before...



After...



My sleeve will never be the same...


Today is all about relaxing and spending time at home...with how busy we are at work (it's not always golf and games,) I've really taken to enjoying my personal time with my family when I can. These kids are getting so big, so fast...and I'm making an effort not to wish the time away. They won't be little forever!
