Me: "Oh crap!"

Ava: "Mom, why is the police man stopping us?"

me: "Uh, mommy did something wrong."

Ava: "Is that why you said 'oh crap'?"

me: "yeah, i shouldn't have said that, huh."

Ava: "What did you do wrong, mommy?"

me: "I was talking on the phone while I was driving."

Ava: "But mom, you always do that."

me: "yeah, let's not mention that."

Ava: "okay. Next time he comes is he going to take you to jail?"

me: "Likely."

Hurdle: Cleared.

You may remember months ago when we attempted a little potty training with Christian. I wasn't ready. So we went back to diapers and finally mustered up the energy to attempt one last time. He was so ready, but still tested my patience for a while. As of the last week he has essentially been accident free. YAY! It is a day to celebrate!

Continuing on.

We spent the last week with my sister and her 2 girls in town. We had a lot of fun.

We had a few of these moments...

But mostly these moments...

And I can't get enough of these moments...

My type of Fireman

This picture makes me think of summer parties, which I Love . Nice pic Ty.

And my 3 favorite faces

We've been doing some serious scooter rides lately.

Now THIS is ART!

Ava's artistic abilities are really shining through lately. Not only does she ask to draw ALL-THE-TIME, but she comes up with some great wall art. Following each depiction of a family member, and a promise to give/mail it to them she continuously questions whether or not it is hanging on their fridge. So, jon, sara and "baby" is this hanging yet???
