This is one of the best places to go with your children! Ava had a ball tubing and being pulled around all afternoon. Dave and I were excited to see her enjoying the snow and the outdoors.
She had fun and we got a workout!
Ava’s Favorite Toy
Salt Lake for the Holidays 2013
Ava is in love with the cat, dogs and the mountains. She hasn’t showed real interest in the snow, but that could change when we go sledding or cross country skiing. We are here for almost three weeks and this kid is having a ball!

Christmas is for Kids 2013
We spent our Christmas with my brother and his family and my cousin. Ava’s cousins, Seanna (7 years) and Elysa (5 years), we perfect little angels. They played, entertained and loved Ava. The girls called her baby Ava. All
of the cousins shared their new toys with each other. The biggest hit? A kids’ karaoke machine called Rock Star. They sang their hearts out all day and night.
Frito the Cat
Ava is in LOVE with Frito. As soon as she wakes up, she searches for the cat. All she wants is this cat. The two dogs, Sydney and Athena, have taken a back seat to this feline. I wonder if she dreams about this Siamese?
SLC December 2013
Fun holiday visit to Salt Lake City to see the family and spend the holiday.
St. Hoober of May Street
Ava has developed a strong relationship with Hoober. She plays with him every day, shares her food and just plain old loves him. He allows Ava to do anything to him and she takes advantage of it.
My angel has said the word I have been most wanting to hear. She says a few versions: mom, momma, and mommy. Her voice is so cute!
Hanukkah is in the Air
There isn’t a day that goes by where Ava shows here love for Hoober. He shares EVERYTHING with him. Hoober’s patience with her is beyond what we ever imagined. Ava pulls is tail, ears, rides, climbs and “pays attention” to him all day long. He just lays there and allows her to have fun.
She especially loves to share her food with him!
Every night we give Ava sometime to relax and wind down from the day; this happens in our bed. She copies me when I put lip balm on my lips and loves to use our sheet as a tent. She watches Elmo while she is in the “tent.”
Check out my new PJ’s
Bubbles always puts a smile on Ava’s face. She looks forward to them in the bath and is starting to try to blow them herself.
First Snowfall of 2013
Ava’s First Stamp in her Passport
Ava took her first international flight. We flew to Cabo for Marcus and Susanna’s wedding. It took five hours to get there and three on the way back.
Ava loved the pool! We stayed at the Pueblo Bonito Resort Sunset Beach and was surrounded by pools. She didn’t care much for the sand on the beach.
Ava saw her first concert at the wedding. Vanilla Ice got the party started! She loved to dance with momma and dada!
What will the next stamp be in Ava’s passport?! Paris?!!
