Ava is Four Years Old

For Ava’s birthday Jon gave her a sleeve of crackers to feed the birds Independence/Motor Skills Ava told us the other day that she is no longer a cat.  Even though I had worried for awhile that being a cat was going to cause problems with making friends, I’m sad that she’s moved on from […]

St. George Island in Florida

We spent the last week in Florida where Ava got to see two grandparents on my side and one grandparent and an aunt on Jon’s side.  When we left, Ava declared that she wanted to live in Florida.  I think it’s because she loved seeing family, but I also suspect it’s because she doesn’t understand […]

Ava Tidbits

I’ve been saving up all these Ava tidbits.  This is the funniest one: We’ve been working on consequences with Ava lately. One night she wasn’t allowed to fall asleep with a toy but Jon promised to put the toy next to her after she feel asleep if she was good so she would wake up […]

Easter Egg Hunt

Easter was great this year.  Our neighbors hold an Easter egg hunt every year.  Everyone gives them 15 eggs and at 10:30 on Easter we let the kids loose. Ava did really well.  I was worried at first because she saw all the ones planted at our house and she was horrified that by the […]

Hawaii: Day 8

Hawaii: Day 7

Day 7 We went back to Poipu Beach and ate poke on the beach.  All the chickens swarmed because we brought out food. Ava was getting mad at the chickens and she wasn’t really interested in swimming. We went back home to get Ava in a better mood.  After a few hours of relaxing, we […]

Hawaii Day 6

In the morning we headed back to Crazy Beach.  The waves were so intense that we only stood in the water up to our ankles and it still knocked us down. A lifeguard actually came out and told us not to go in the water.  None of that stopped the surfers, though, who looked like […]

Hawaii Days 4 and 5

Day 4 We went back to Poipu Beach.  Ava was in a stage where instead of being nice to the birds she just yelled at them.  We had been talking about how one of the sparrows was dirty and I think she took it to heart and decided that all the birds on the beach […]

Hawaii Day 3

Day 3 We woke up and watched the birds rise with the sunrise around 6:50.  I try to burn images like this to my brain: This year Jon bought us specialized snorkel equipment that was amazing.  Poipu Beach is one of the best places for snorkelling so we tried it out there.  Ava was excited […]
