Weekends are the BEST

We love weekends in this family. A time to relax and spend time with those you love! All week long, I wait for Friday like Christmas. I usually always have a great Friday, nothing can get me down because I know the weekend is coming! This weekend was no different..

from cruisin in the Barbie car...

to posing with pretty flowers...

And shooting some hoops...

You just can't beat weekends!

A Day at the Zoo

Charlie and I scheduled a few days off in the month of April to recharge. I should've been a school teacher because I need a break from work every couple of months! We had a fun day at the zoo, Avery loves all of the animals.

The Tiger was swimming and playing, fun to watch!

Avery's favorite part...the petting zoo!

She LOVES to feed the animals. "Mister Bull" (according to Charlie) was her favorite one to feed.

Here is the miniature horse that we were all too scared to feed. I felt sorry for him and tried once but as soon as I saw those big teeth, I threw the food at him and ran. Fun times!

Avery is SO in to pretending lately. Here are a few of the things she has been pretending lately...

  • "Mama, I'll be the mama, you be the baby."
  • "Mama, I'm the pin-pess (princess), you be the King."
  • "I'm the big bad wolf, you be the little piggies. I say "HEY LIL PIGGIES...LET ME IN!" You say "NOOOO WAY" Then I huff and blow you house down, k mama?"
  • Frequently, Avery will be the only dog of the house, who Charlie has named Rufus. She stays in character (tongue hanging out, barking, the whole nine yards!) and even demands dog food. She is so funny!

I love that her imagination is taking off. It is so fun to play a part!

A Day at the Garden

We had a fun time last weekend going on a tour of the Coke museum at Biedenharn and Nonna got some great shots of Avery in their garden. Thanks so much, Nonna!
