Harold and the Purple Crayon.

Shauna and Maeve had extra tickets to the Seattle Children's Theater, and invited us to join them. It was so fun, Avery watched every second of it. I think we will be returning for another play in the future. We saw Harold and the Purple Crayon. I had no idea that this is a series of books too. I think we may be checking these out soon. Here is proof that the girls had a great time. Thanks Shauna and Maeve!

Summer Fun

We've had a lot of fun this summer, perhaps the reason for the lack of updates to the blog. Avery is fully embracing becoming a big sister, she loves her baby brother and gives him hugs and kisses constantly. She continues to say the funniest things, keeps us on our toes, and exhausts us on a daily basis. The terrible 2's were nothing! I've heard 3 is harder, people were not kidding. Hopefully she gets the worst out of her system before baby brother arrives!

Driving practice at the fair.

She and Bennett had so much fun on the rides!

Fun in the petting barn. The goats were her favorite.

Getting ready for her first haircut!

The first cut!

Sleeping in the tent with mommy.

One of her many new talents. She loves to hang, climb, be upside down, anything to give me a small heart attack! Pardon the underpants shot. I had to explain to her why we should do this trick while wearing pants.

First day at "Big Girl School" (aka, preschool/daycare)!

First night in her big bed! She's been doing great, with the exception of waking up at 6 and not napping anymore!

Beach combing at the Pinneo beach house.

Bathing beauty. We had a great weekend at the beach house with Chelsea, baby Liam and Janey. They are such wonderful hosts.

First face painting experience at the kid's carnival at Magnuson Park! She got a butterfly. Sadly, I didn't get a good photo of the actual artwork.

Breaking the pinata at Ella's birthday party.

A plate of her very own steamed clams. This is her new dinner of choice when we go out for dinner. She LOVES them. She can have them all, we do not share a love of clams.
