Leah is a little poser for the camera. She loves to get her picture taken. She also likes to go around giving hugs and kisses to everyone. She is our little social girl. She loves to pick up Ava from school. She finds her in class and sits right in the middle of all of the kids until Ava's name is called to leave. She talks non-stop, sings songs, and no one can understand her but she is growing up into such a fun little girl. She has her terrible two moments but a few minutes later she'll flash this smile and she is off running again. We love little Leah.

Car Wash

Leah is scared to go through the car wash yet she begs to go every day. Last week she put on her sunglasses, covered herself with the blanket, and cover her ears the whole time we waited in line, paid, and went through the car wash. The next day she asked to go again. Silly Leah.

Today we went to La Mirada to a mini waterpark there, Buccaneer Bay. The girls had a great time. They had a super fun lazy river. Both of the girls had to wear life vests so they floated along and swam fast with the current. They loved it! They went down the little water slide a million times. Unfortunately, the girls were too short to go on the big slides, Ava was disappointed. It was kind of a cloudy/cool day but there were other splash pad areas and two other big pools. We'll have to go back when the girls are taller.

We didn't bring the camera in since we were all in the water the whole time but Eric snapped a few after we all got dressed again and then they went in the bounce houses. The girls were exhausted and slept most of the way home.

It was a fun family day!

First Day

Ava really loved her first day of preschool although she did say that it seemed long. 4 hours is pretty long! Little Leah asked for Ava a few times during the day and when I said she was at school she would say, "I wanna go" year, Leah.

Ride Like The Wind

Kaylyn, our neighbor, comes to play with the girls often. She is 11 and is so fun for the girls to have around. She just started 6th grade and I can't believe she still likes to play barbies and house with my little ones. One day Ava will be heart broken when she stops coming over. Today they had fun riding bikes.

Tuesday Fun

We love Tuesday fun days at Disneyland!

Meet and Greet

Today we went to Ava's new preschool class to meet her two teachers. She is going to Preschool Connection Plus three days a week. She gets to bring her lunch and work with the Special Ed students for a half hour each class. I think it will be a great way to help her to be comfortable being friends with all of the kids she meets.

She is 1 of only 3 girls in her class of 16 students. She met one of the girls today, Molly and they were instant friends. I think she will have a great year!

After orientation I took Ava out on a date to Cinnamon Production for a pancake breakfast. She most excited about this giant chocolate milk she was allowed to get. It was a nice morning with little Ava June. She is growing up.

Girls Weekend

Rachael, Karis, and Adrian came into town this weekend to celebrate Adrian's upcoming wedding. They threw her a bridal shower and we spent most of the weekend just hanging out without kids.

The shower turned out so nice and she had a great turn out.

Look at how giant Mere is compared to Adri. Haha, fun times.

Dinner at Don Jose's, shopping and seeing The Help.

Thanks to the husbands for being great dads so this could be possible!

Finally Finished

We finally finished the playground's only been 2 months. :) After all the trouble we had getting this in our backyard it took a while to get excited about spending another day on it but we finally got to paint it and the girls have really loved playing on it. It's all worth it.

Animal Adventure Group

On Thursday, we got the girls got together from the Animal Adventure Group. There will be 6 girls this year and they had fun getting to know each other and swimming at the Carron's house. They loved their slide and jumping off of the rock wall.

We're looking forward to a great year learning about animals. We should have gotten a picture of them all together...Tanna-Sydney-Ava-Tessa-Ella-Tatum...but here is a few of them.

I love this picture of Ava and Tessa. They are just leaning on the side of the pool chatting.

California Adventure

I took the girls to California Adventure today. It was one of the hottest days of the year but it was empty! We got to go on what we wanted without much waiting. The girls got to go on the new Little Mermaid ride twice. They were really good listeners and we had a fun time! I'm looking forward to more Disney Tuesdays in the cooler fall weather.
