Summer Fun!

Wow, it's been a while since I last posted. We've been busy! Here's a run down of the fun we've had recently:

- We celebrated Father's Day at Laura and Rob's house in Snohomish. The whole Leist family was there, and it was great to see everyone. Scott, Sally and the girls have a new addition to their family, a pup named Tatu. Avery loved petting her!

- Our daycare was on vacation for the week of the 4th of July so Fred's mom and dad came over to watch Avery. Avery was so excited to have them at our house! The weather was great and they got to spend some time in the back yard while Avery played in her fun new pool that we got for her. Avery called both Grandma and Grandpa Leist "Gampy" and one morning before Grandma and Grandpa arrived to watch her for the day, she looked at me with a concerned look and asked, "Momma, where's Gampy?" It was too cute! Here she is in her new pool as she went in fully clothed:

- Fred traded his motorcycle for a Jeep! It's an '87 Wrangler with a hard top and is in really good condition. We took it for a drive one evening and had a picnic dinner with our friends Craig, Candice and Chase in the Manastash area. Avery's carseat was in the backseat and it was such a beautiful day that Fred took the top off. She had a blast looking around and it was so fun to watch the wind blow through her hair (literally). She was loving every second of it and it was just the cutest thing! We tried to get her to wear her puple sunglasses, but of course that only lasted for a few minutes.

- Avery had her first haircut...which was probably more of a big deal for me than it was for her. My friend Neely cut it and it turned out great. Avery had a lollipop as she sat down in the chair and she did fabulous!

When we got home, I tried to take some "after" pictures but Avery was tired and hungry and wanted to watch "Ah-Saw-Me" (Sesame Street) so she had a snack and watched Sesame on our bed - but here are a couple that I tried to get:

- We attended a 2nd birthday party for Carter Flatness on Saturday. It was great weather in Kent and it was nice visiting good friends! Fred and Avery are looking forward to celebrating with Shane and Heather for Colt's 3rd birthday next weekend. I'll be off on a "Mommies Only" weekend in Chelan with my sister and a few girlfriends. Looking forward to some R&R!
