I feel like the spring completely flew by! It's almost July (and the cool, spring weather is long gone), so I best get these photos posted.
Spring blooms and beautiful blue skies after all that crazy winter weather.
Practicing her bike riding skills.
Ava's first homework assignment.
Playing is tough work.
A little me time at the salon. Those grays aren't going to cover themselves.
Our first "baby."
A fun dinner with the Adolphs.
Followed by lots of wine on the patio. ("We might as well open another bottle...it's a twist off.")
Porch snuggles with my little man (trying to keep him happy during the last 30 minutes before bedtime).
One of Ava's current favorite books. The story is super cute, and the illustration is fantastic.
An artistic date night.

Ava loves to take pictures of the dogs.
My little hipster baby fits right in at Whole Foods.
Parenting two small children is no joke, but moments like this make it all worth it.
Sangria and tapas with the girls. My happy place.

Catching a fish at Grant's birthday party. It was serious business.
Fun at Sam's. AKA: shopping cart jenga.
