My Girl on St. Patricks Day

I forgot to post my princess in her Green:

She is starting to outgrow her favorite friend!

Just because

she is so cute...

Ava Grace was very excited to show me all of her "dolls".  This was once a dress on her, now it is a shirt, she is growing so much.  I can't believe how fast time is going.

Glorious Week of Weather

What a Glorious Week we had here in Chicago...the weather was absolutely perfect, sunshine, warm weather, no bugs and family and friends.  Tyler was home for spring break, and we took advantage of having him here.  I miss my oldest, and it is nice for Ava Grace to have her oldest boy home.

We took advantage of the zoo:
her favorite was the monkeys

do you see the baby monkey
he just started this week
leaving his mother
so cute
Ava got up close with a goat 

We watched the dolphin show
this is Ava while she is watching
after I snapped this picture
a dolphin splashed us and got my camera all wet
so I had to put it away
she was a little shocked when we got wet, but then started laughing 

the next day we went Downtown
first we waited for the train

then we rode the train into the city 

We went to Willis Tower (formally known as Sears tower)
we went out on the glass ledge they had
Ava thought it was great 

then we walked to the "bean" 

Ava had such a fun day and was exhausted
she fell asleep on Tyler during the train ride home
so sweet

I don't know what it is with sunshine and warm weather, I just feel like a different person.  I feel renewed and joyful, so happy for this week with Tyler and the nice weather.

So Sweet...

Ava Grace loves her doggie...she loves to help take care of Cooper and Cooper loves all the extra food he gets from Ava Grace when she gives him her food...right before I took this picture she was reading to him and he had his big head on her shoulder resting.

showing daddy how she knows all of her shapes

Ava Grace was sick for the first time since being home...she got Croup.  She sounded horrible, but she was still so sweet and precious thru it all...

Andrew comforted her with a puzzle
she knows where all the letters go
