Wonderful Long Weekend

I had a wonderful weekend visiting with family! It was a MUCH needed trip home. My cousin, Jacob graduated from high school Friday night, I got lots of Ava time, and I got to see my grandfather who has been very sick. It was difficult to see him in his current condition. I can only pray that the Lord is merciful and helps him find strength and peace.

Congratulations Jacob!!
On Saturday, we had a great time hanging out at the pool at my grandparent's house. Ava had her first experience swimming (please notice how stinking cute she is in her bathing suit!) My Aunt Kathy got thrown in and gave us all a big laugh.

Ava thinks Papa's lap is much more inviting than the cold swimming pool!

Ode to my Aunt Kathy's dunking!

As you saw in my last post I had not seen Ava in over a month!! I was having serious withdrawals. I was AMAZED at how much she had grown in that short amount of time. She is so beautiful and amazing to watch. She laughs out loud and just has this incredible personality. I could not get enough her sweet self this weekend!
