Last weekend, my Dad, Rhonda, and Lily came up to Dallas for a visit. They made the trek up I-35 for several reasons, including the fact that Lily needed to shop for her prom dress.
That's right...my baby sister is going to prom as well as graduating from high school in less than a month. Seeing as how she was only five when I left Austin for TCU, this is crazy to me! Now she is the one who is about to be a horned frog. I. am. old.
Between dress shopping and other activities, the Bratton clan came over to hang out with Ava (let's be honest...Josh and I no longer get top billing). She absolutely loved seeing her Grampsie, Nana, and Aunt Lily.
After their visit, we headed to Erin's birthday/Cinco de Mayo fiesta.
Ava had so much fun at the party, and she especially loved playing with her BFF, Abby.
The little amigas were very easily amused, and spent a great deal of time playing with rocks. (The fact that none were ingested is almost shocking.)
Which Ava thought were delicious. Lovely.
As well as her silly Aunt Jill...
We eventually got Ava to sit still for a while by bribing her with "agua" and food.
It was such a wonderful afternoon. Chasing around a toddler the whole time didn't make for the most relaxing time, but the weather was perfect, the sangria was flowing, and (most) of our favorite friends were in attendance. It can't get much better than that.
Feliz Cumpleanos, Erin! We love you :).
