Week in Pictures, and a few words.....

Hey there! It has been a busy week around these parts. And, oh so much fun!

The battery for Ava's New Jeep(new to us!)arrived Monday. This girl is in love. She is a little short on reaching the petal but this did not stop her. There is a radio and she loves to change stations while driving. This would be a bad habit picked up from daddy. A little drivers Ed is much needed, hopefully one topic discussed will be keeping you eye on the road and your hands on the steering wheel at all times! Beware of our cu-de-sac for this new driver.
Tuesday, hubs and I had a hot date. Bon Jovi baby! You know you are getting old when you may be the youngest at a "rock" concert. It was a great time. He played many old tunes; one which Jarred said his mom made him turn off in the eighties because it was "devil music"....we got a big kick out of this one. Now his mom likes him, who couldn't really?
And of course there was some time spent in the pool. It won't be long and we will be going to the big pool! This girl LOVES the water!
I had the best lunch date at this fine establishment.
Weekend fun included birthday parties, swimming at our fav pool, and a baby shower for a co-worker! I did manage to get some grocery shopping and laundry done somewhere in here. Don't know how, but I did.

Sea World 2011

I take to many photos, how do I pick my favs? I narrowed it down from 250 to about 30. That is still to many to share. My name is Angela, and I. have. a. problem.
A quick weekend get away that was packed with lots of fun. Let's just say that Ava is now a fan of Shamu and now an ever bigger fan of Sesame Street. We rode mini roller coasters, watched shows, feed dolphins, played in the water, made smores, and even had breakfast with Elmo and friends.
This was a trip this mommy will never forget. There is just something when I see the excitement in my girls face. I love experiencing all these first moments with her. Nothing, absolutely nothing makes me happier!

Mother's Day

Her children arise up, and call her blessed - Proverbs 31:28

I am glad we have Mother's day. I always like to celebrate my mom on this great day. I always search for the perfect gift. Something that will make her happy. She has made me happy for 30 years.
It is strange to think that now someone celebrates me. But to be honest I don't need to be celebrated. I want to celebrate my precious girl who made me a mommy. I am so in love with this role. I love being a mommy to Ava and I hope that she loves being a daughter to me.
This is my third Mother's day, and every year I love being a mommy more and more. I pray that I will inspire, love, nurture, encourage the way I was. I have never loved my mother more. The job of mommy is hard. I don't know about you, but I love this hard job. The most important job I will ever have.
Thanks mom. You made the job look easy when I know it was not. Long days of taxiing to cheer practice, cooking, cleaning, loving us girls. And now your job continues and Ava is seeing first hand how lucky I am.
Happy Mother's day to all you mommies! I hope you feel as blessed as I do.
Don't you all think we should take time to stop and smell the flowers?

What a weekend!

It was a busy one round these parts. But oh how I loved every minute(well almost every minute!) I won't go into the fact that I became a little stressed and just a little snippy on Saturday. Or the fact that I did almost chop my finger off, it is still bleeding as of today. I enjoyed celebrating this special "Mommy 2 Bee"
A cute bee themed shower complete with a yellow and black candy/treat bar. Carson got a load of gifts that he will be needing in just about 6 short weeks. Can you believe only 6 more weeks? Eek, I can't wait to meet and start spoiling little C.
Isn't the little mascot the cutest? I may be partial. Just saying.

We had the joy of having Mamie in for the shower. A little photo shoot of Mamie and her girl was in store. How could you not take pictures of these two? I would say my love of leopard is truly rubbing off in everyone in this family!
Happy Week to you all!
