Ava's Vacay Round-Up

I have a million pictures of Ava from our trip to Ryan's family reunion. Here is a sample of Ava's reunion activities.

Here, she was so exhausted that she fell asleep in the car on the way to the community water park and actually transferred inside and continued to sleep beside a very loud indoor pool. If you know anything about Ava's sleeping habits, you know that is a miracle.

And just being her adorable self.

I was strolling the kids around the drug store a few days ago, and suddenly Ava says, loudly "GASP! Who tooted?"

As far as I know, there was no tooting. Maybe our cart made a noise.

so I tried to shush her with "Nobody. That was nothing"

Ava: "Was it you, mommy?" (still very loud)

Me, sounding mighty guilty: "No. I don't know what you're talking about. Shh."

Ava: "Was it Asher? Who tooted?"

Me: "Fine, yes, it was Asher."

I was checking out this blog, Creative Soup, as I often do, when I spotted this pic
which Creative Soup spotted at THIS site which is dedicated to fanny pack antics. Does that guy look familiar? You may not know him from this angle as well as I do, but this looks exactly like my husband. In fact, I was sure it was my husband when I first saw it, as Creative Soup was created by Ryan's Brick House roomate's wife (Brooke, who I love, and wish I knew in real life.) There were a lot of speedo-wearing occasions in the Brick House, and Ryan was always first to don the speedo. But how did Fanny Pack Antics get this picture? And also, though there were many speedo-wearing episodes during his college yearss, I don't think ryan ever sported a fanny pack.

correct me if I'm wrong, ry.

On a kind-of related note, Has anybody else seen the Malcolm in the Middle episode where Reese tells Dewey that everybody has an evil twin, and Dewey meets his? It's one of my favorites. I love that show.

Ava, loudly as she tucked asher into my bed: "TUCK! TUCK! TUCK! TUCK!" (and then very quietly as she stroked him) "Relax. Relax. Relax your arms. Relax your head. Relax your binky."
