McCall Winter Festival (lots and lots of pictures)

We went to the McCall Winter Festival last weekend. I have lived in Boise for almost 10 years and I have never been. We had a great time. Averi loved all the snow,Buzz Lightyear and swimming at the hotel. Hopefully it won't be another 10 years before we go again. I took this picture just to show how much snow they had.

Summer Happenings 2011 (warning lots of pictures)

Averi turned 3. She got lots of stuff but her favorite is her princess clothes which includes matching shoes. She is a ball of sassy energy and makes us laugh all the time. So happy this little girl is mine.

The kids getting ready to watch the balloons glow at the Hot Air Balloon Festival.

We went to the Hot Air Balloon Festival the kids all loved it but especially Averi. Everything is awesome to a 3 year old.

Had 4th of July festivities. Averi loved doing sparklers. When we were getting ready for the fireworks to start I told Averi to get ready for them and she said "the fires not working it's broken."

Picnics on the porch. Averi got a lunch box and loves putting food in it and carrying it around. In this picture she's getting ready to eat her lunch while I mowed the lawn.

Averi loves swimming. This is the daycare ladies pool for her baby but Averi loved it and plays in it for hours.

Makenzie turned 15. Averi thought it was her birthday and wanted to help blow out the candles.

We went to an air show. This is a parachuter with a flag hooked to his ankle. It looked so awesome.

More air show pics.

We also had a family reunion and visited with lots of family but I can't find the pictures of that. We had a great and busy summer.

Averi singing "I Love You"

Averi loves Barney and she loves singing the Barney "I Love you" song. She has to sing it at the top of her lungs and she will sing it over and over for about 10 mins. It's pretty funny.

The other day she was watching Barney's Birthday movie and it was time to eat. Dennis went into get her and all I hear from the kitchen is Dennis saying " Averi, do not lick the TV" Averi responded with " I'm licking the cake Dad". It's amazing the things you say as a parent that you thought you would never say in your life. I love it!

Averi exercising!

I got the "Jillian Michael's 30 day shred" workout video. This is Averi doing it with Jake, Cody and I. She's pretty good at following what Jillian does. Little side note, I LOVE this video. It's only 20 minutes and it kicks my butt.

Wild Hair!!!

Averi has really fine hair so if it isn't in rubberbands this is what it looks like. It's pretty wild right? Don't you love her grumpy face too? She's normally a very happy girl but right after her nap, you better walk on eggshells for about 30 minutes.

Averi's umbrella

Averi loves her umbrella. As you can see from the 2 pictures above she seems to think that she needs it inside also. But reasoning with a 2 year old is impossible. The other day she was twirling around the kitchen with her umbrella and spun a few times too many and fell and hit her cheek on the bench at the kitchen table. Oh man she screamed for so long and instantly got a bruise. But she didn't learn her lesson we have to constantly remind her not the spin with her umbrella. Also it's hilarious when she says umbrella. She says "umbrellllllla".
