I am behind on posting fun family & friend events from the past six weeks or so. Here's what we've been up to...
1. We joined two other life groups at our church. We're still with our Sunday night group that meets twice per month, but Ron, Ava, and I are participating in a new one called the "Homies" for families who do home education. Even though Ava is still pre-school age, it's good to just listen to other parents for ideas. Our first outing was a picnic in the park; next up is a water slide party! Great group of people! And also, Ava and I joined a life group/play group that meets every other week with moms and their preschoolers for brunch and play and devotion.
2. Ava and I went to a fun birthday party at the Memphis Zoo! Hudson and Harrison's mom, Jamie, is the ultimate party planner:) We had a blast, and the weather was so pleasant. We're planning another zoo trip soon.
3. My friend and fellow teacher Tammy got married and asked Ava to be her flower girl and me to be a bridesmaid. We all went out for pedicures and Mexican food the night before. They had the neatest, most fun wedding on a softball field. Tammy is a softball coach, and she and her husband met playing on a co-ed team. He proposed at one of their games-- so why not have it at a softball field & have play a real game after the reception with a cookout to follow?! :) Other than the intense, Mississippi humid heat, it was a blast!!
4. Ava had her first dance recital. She's been taking ballet and tap since January with her bff Mary Abbott. They were so stinking adorable! For their tap routine they wore monogrammed aprons and had pots and spoons-- cute! Fun night! I took so many pics. Ava wasn't one bit shy!
