Safari Adventure - Part 3

After my pony ride, we walked around the rest of the park and saw even more animals...
.....a beautiful giraffe......
.........huge turtles.........
At the very end, Mommy and I went into a petting area to love the baby goats.....they were very sweet! After the petting we scrubbed, sanitized and headed home for baths and naps!
A very happy, but tired little girl!

My First Pony Ride

Drive - Thru Safari

We saw exciting animals on our drive - thru safari. The highlight of the drive was riding on Mommy's lap to get a better view.....note to reader....I was not in harms way - it is acceptable for kids to ride in the front seat for the short ride.
We saw llamas - they came right up to the window!
Here are the zebras....they look just like my carseat!
The camels were super funny and pretty much surrounded our car....
Ava's comment..."I want to hold it."
We saw so many other animals - there were monkeys, lions, tigers, bears, bison, and cougars just to name a few. The monkeys were not very modest to Mommy didn't post any pictures!

Happy Birthday, Daddy!

Today is Daddy's 37th Birthday! We woke up and celebrated with breakfast burritos. I gave Daddy some of his very favorite gummy bears and painted a picture frame for his office. Mommy says it was a messy project - but well worth it! After breakfast, we headed to an animal safari/petting zoo that is a few towns away from my house. Tonight Daddy is going to a football game with his brother! I love you, Daddy! You are the greatest!

How to Lose a Binky...and Make-Up Afterwards...

The Culprit... Guilty as Charged....
The Evidence...
The Make-Up...Ava will ALWAYS be in love with this matter what...binky or no binky!

Mickey Mouse Pancakes

My new thing is to pull a stool or chair up to the counter to see what's going on in the kitchen. This was especially fun at Mum and Papa's. I discovered something super fun on Sunday morning as I climbed up on my chair!
Papa made Mickey Mouse pancakes for the whole family! My pancake below is actually Minnie Mouse...look closely and you will see a bow on her left ear. I love the apple pancake tradition at Mum and Papa's! So much fun!

Sweet Pictures...

Mum's Beauty Shop

Mommy and I spent the weekend in Texas visiting Mum, Papa, Sissy, Craig, and William. We had so much fun! One of my favorite things about going to Texas is playing beauty shop in Mum's bathroom while she gets ready. I drag my stool into her bathroom and dig through her make-up drawer and slather blush all over my face blush makes the whole body's not only for cheeks!

Happy Labor Day!

Happy Labor Day! We spent the last day of of Labor Day weekend in the water!
Daddy took me on a VERY SLOW ride on the jet fun!
Here is the fish pond Pappy and I built yesterday. What little fishy wouldn't love to swim in its very own baby pool? Daddy tried to catch a fish for me - no luck today...maybe next time.

Sidewalk Chalk Sunday

Girly Girls

Grammy has a box of dress-up clothes at the lake. She has two of everything since Isabella and I are only a few months apart. We had loads of fun doing silly cheers in our heels!

Mommy can't resist cute feet pictures! Such cute twinkle toes!

An Afternoon With The Ladies

Saturday was a big football game day for the Daddies - so the girls went shopping for the afternoon. Mommy, Ava, Tia Lorena, Prima Isabella, and Grammy went to the outdoor mall to shop. Here we are playing at the beautiful fountain. Isabella and I each got pennies to make lots and lots of wishes. We ate dinner at Mimi's and headed back to the lake for a cousin sleepover!
