Fun at the Fair!

Quack! Quack!

Kiss anyone?

Goats and Girls!

Here is the Piggies lovin' all the attention they can get. (Kinda like Miss Ava!)

We sure had a great time at the fair last night. Ava loved all the animals. Lexis and Emeline loved that they could pet all the animals. I still wouldn't let Ava touch them. See the unexpected kiss from the goat? She kept touching her lips saying, "aakkkie" and "eeewww" very cute to say the least! It was a fun evening!

One more month and Ava will be two. It just doesn't seem right. I was looking at pictures of her birthday party last year. Wow how she has grown. It is amazing to think where she was just two short years ago. (Still safely inside Mommy!) The struggle she indured, but all well worth it! I am counting my blessing today. Three gorgeous girls!

She is so proud of her drawing. (Mommy is too!)

Wonderful Vacation

As you can see from the video we had am amazing vacation in Philadelphia. We stayed with friends we met at the Ronald McDonald House two years ago. George, Stacie and Addie made us feel right at home. We did many things. The main reason we went was to get Ava's CDH follow up appointment at CHOP. They told us she is doing wonderful. They would like to see her gain a little more weight but that will come. It was very emotional seeing all our old friends and nurses. Somedays it feels like just yesterday we were there fighting for Ava's life. We really have been through so much yet we have come through so strong. God is so good! We had a lot of fun at Dorney Park and the Hershey Chocolate Factory. Oh who can forget the Columbus Zoo. We love animals!

I have to give a shout out and thank you to all the wonderful friends we saw. Hello George, Stacie, Addie, Marina, Alycen, Dave, Joey, Emily, Kelli, Mike, Chad, Jenn, Travis, Lexi, Taryn, Denise, Daisy, Deanna, Michelle, Dr. Adzick, and Dr. Hendrix. We love and we already miss you guys!
