Ava turned 2!!

Last weekend we have a very small gathering of family and friends to help us celebrate Ava's 2nd birthday. We had a Minnie Mouse themed party...Minnie tablecloth, Minnie balloons, Minnie plates, Minnie napkins and of course, a Minnie cake.

Ava received many wonderful gifts. The one that seems to be getting the most use is a cash register that has all the bells and whistles on it. Clayton and Ava are trying their hardest to "share" it with each other but it's be a constant battle.

Grandma Mary and Nana gave Ava a new baby doll and a doll stroller. She is having fun pushing her baby around the house.

I'm really excited about getting the Radio Flyer trike put together so that we can go out for walks. I think she will enjoy riding the trike much more than sitting in her stroller when we go on walks. Another great gift!!

Macdil Airfest 2009

Last weekend, we went to the Macdill Airfest in Tampa. One of Dale's good friends from high school, Maury, is an Air Force pilot and was at the show. Dale hadn't seen him in a long time so it was a great time for them to get together. Maury is a B-52 bomber pilot and he gave us a tour of his plane. It was an amazing experience for us all. We took away some great memories and also some sunburn!!
