Hawaii: Day 8

For our last day we headed up to Waimea Canyon.  Ava enjoyed chasing the chickens. The canyon was beautiful, but also really cold.  I did not appreciate how cold it would be up there because the rest of Hawaii was so warm.  Ava was displeased. We did some driving in the canyons and stopped at […]

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 […]

Ava is 3.5 Years Old

I miss the old format of describing Ava.  In honor of her turning 3.5, I thought I’d write one. Independence/Motor Skills Ava has great motor skills.  She’s very close to being able to brush her teeth on her own, she just needs help with the back parts of her teeth. Speaking of teeth, Ava likes […]

Halloween

Halloween was interesting this year because Ava doesn’t like costumes.  She thinks if you wear a costume it means you will become the thing represented by the costume.  She didn’t even want to be a kitty, until we explained that candy was involved.  Then she was not only okay with it, she wanted me to […]

Inside Out

Watching animated movies with Ava has always been more of a duty than a joy.  But I love the movie “Inside Out” and I thought Ava was old enough to enjoy it so we watched it last weekend.  For people not familiar with the movie, it’s about an 11-year old girl who moves from Minnesota […]

Kittycat

Ava is such a charming little girl.  But don’t call her a girl.  She’s really a kitty and she gets mad if you call her anything but a kitty.  She can’t even handle this TV show Super Why where they refer to the audience as Super Readers.  She tells the television, “No, I’m a kitty.” […]
