Crazy weekend!

Well, Blogger is fighting me and I can't add pictures. So, I'll tell you about our crazy, busy, fun weekend and try for some pics later.

We started our weekend early. We took the 2 1/2 hour drive to the smokey, fire infested Boulder to have lunch with Ava's grandparents (aka: Addam's parents) and Ava played in the park for hours and had a blast. We then hopped back in the car for another hour and headed to our friends' wedding. It was beautiful and a wonderful location. The ceremony was outside in this pretty rock amphitheater facing the river with aspen trees rustling in the wind, really it was gorgeous. We ate, we dance, Ava danced until her little legs wouldn't move anymore. We then hopped back in the car for a 3 hour drive to my parents' house. I told, CRAZY weekend!

Saturday we did some shopping for Ava's birthday party, then had a great time at my nephew Nikolai's 4th birthday party. He had a great time and all the kids were worn out.

Sunday we went to Denver and I did some wedding dress shopping with a great friend of mine and then we headed back up the mountain.

Somewhere in the middle of all that we decided it was officially time for Ava to get rid of her addiction to her paci. So far so good!!

I just can't seem to keep up with this...

Ava will be 2 years old in just a few short weeks. I have no idea where the time has gone. I think I may have accidentally blinked.
Life has been crazy and we are finally getting settled into the beautiful Colorado mountains. Here's our view! No, this photo isn't edited.
I would love to promise that I'll actually get some posts on here on a more regular basis, but I can't make that promise. I'll see if I can't try a bit harder though!
Ava is above and beyond with development. She is blowing through milestones like crazy, in all areas except speech. She just doesn't want to talk. She babbles and does communicate with us, but she doesn't say much. I'm not worried...yet!
Here are a few pictures so you can see just how big she's gotten!

p.s. Mejialar I know you read my blogs. Hunt me down so we can catch up! Try facebook.
