Avery is FOUR!

Our first born is 4!! It is so hard to believe we have been we been parents for 4 years...just as hard to believe we have ONLY been parents for 4 years! Sometimes I can barely remember what my life was like before kids (I guess I have blocked out all the time spent in the gym "working out", going out to eat with my husband before it was called a "date night", seeing movies IN the theater, and leisurely running errands like going to the post office and "browsing" in clothing stores) and other times where I look in the mirror and my 22 year old self appears and is like "Woah. You're, like, totally A MOM. Crazy. And, by the way, how about you go buy some make up NOT from Rite Aid." Wait, what?

Anyway, I digress! Avery is now at the age where she understands what a birthday is and appreciates a party being thrown for her and all her friends being there to celebrate (well, mostly she loves cake and presents. Maybe when she's 5 she'll appreciate all the other stuff a little more??)  So we threw her a party with 15 of her best buds at the splash pad at a park near us. Everyone had a great time and we are so proud of our socially comfortable, hilarious little girl-going-on-teen.

Happy Birthday Sweetie!!

Connor and Avery...Cool Kids!

splash pad fun!

trying some party games

For those wondering: party games don't quite work for 4 year olds. Better luck next year!
