Free Concert at Whole Foods

Ava loves people and live music. Every Wed. and Thurs. Whole Foods offers a 30 minute live concert for kids. I don’t know if she loved the music or the kids more!
She went up to a few kids and tried to kiss them. So cute! She is very loving and sweet!

Ava’s Favorite Song

While Christine and Ava were in SLC for Christmas Holiday, the spent some time with Grandma at church practicing a routine for Christmas Day. Ava was around for most of the practice and she picked up on the routine and fell in love with the song. Whenever we play the song, she immediately goes nuts and we love how she throws her hands over her head like she saw everyone doing during practice.
