The second day in San Francisco was spent at the Botanical Garden at Golden Gate Park.  The Botanical Garden was one of my favorite places when I lived in California.  It’s filled with birds and it’s beautiful.  We saw: Scrub Jay California Towhee – one of my favorites because of the little chip chip noise […]

San Francisco – Day 1

I took Ava on a trip to San Francisco for Labor Day Weekend.  It was so much fun!  She finally stopped asking to move to Florida because now she wants to move to San Francisco.  I told her if she goes to college in San Francisco, I’ll happily move. We stayed at the Marriott Marquis […]

Big Cottonwood

It’s just Ava and I now on our trips and it’s been great.  Sometimes I pick the places we go, but other times Ava asks to go somewhere.  I’ve discovered that the thing that guarantees a good trip is to let Ava do her own thing.  We went to Big Cottonwood and had lunch before […]

Ava and I made it down to Heber yesterday.  We used to go down to Heber several times during the summer, but there’s so much that Ava loves to do in Salt Lake City that we just hadn’t left.  Ava complained so much on the drive because she’s used to everything being within 15 minutes […]

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 […]

Ava and Technology

Ava is amazing at technology.  She’s better at using Jon’s phone than I am. Alexa is on the table behind Ava’s head We have an Alexa in the dining area and Ava is always adding things to its shopping list.  For awhile she was adding bird sticks, which is a phrase she loves to say.  […]
