my birthday was a few weekends ago.  i wanted cafe rio so we packed the car and headed to twin.  ave got a happy meal and we got our rio then headed down to the twin falls canyon for a little picnic relaxation.  trae and jane napped and ave and i explored.  it was such a good day.

 i love my cheesy girls.
ave is set and happy with a chicken nugget in one hand and chocolate milk in the other.  jane is just happy.

after a day in twin my friend meg invited us over for the best brownies and ice cream.  it was a good day.

i didn't even get around to writing my annual birthday-shout-out-post to my favorite twin sister, and we are seriously lacking on recent pictures of just the two of us.  here's one from this last weekend during ragnar relay.  but i don't really need a lengthy post to explain how thankful i am for her... cause i don't have the words to say it. and i don't need to say how seriously awesome she is... cause that won't do her justice. she really is that great. love you meag! 

memorial day

i'm here, playing catch up....my least favorite game. but i would regret it if it didn't get done.  so in few words, and lots of pictures, here goes.

memorial day weekend: avery loves her uncles (and her not pictured aunts). and we love having them around, except for the fact that after they leave avery wants us to act like dogs and buy her cool pets and movies and things like that, because thats what her cool aunts and uncles do.  trae's grandpa and grandma have a big memorial day lunch with all of gramps siblings and kids.  lots of fried chicken, shasta pop and ice cream sandwiches.  it was a good time until our car kinda got stolen.  turns out an distant extended family member that has demetia jumped in our car and drove away with it. we were lucky that nothing happened to him or it and that we found it later.  and its comical now that i think of it.

and jane is just pleasant pretty much all the time.

after lunch we went to swimming at Nat-Soo-Pah with trae's brothers and sister.  i'm quite a fan of warm water swimming pools.  avery loves swimming as long as her head is above water... which was near impossible when going down the slide and resulted in her inhaling a little too much water, but drew and mace took good care of her.  

and two more just cause i think she is cute.  peek-a-boo and her first ice cream cone.
