The girls and I walked down to a dock near my in-laws house with Nathan. He was catching bait for a fishing trip, but the girls just love to go down there and see the water. I let them put their toes in, but it was still pretty chilly!
Ava and I started the walk back before Nathan and Lily (she's a little slower and the fact that she wanted to pick up every stick on the way slowed her down even more).
I mean every stick...
One morning, we spent just hanging out at my in-laws' house. The girls played in the front yard and then, Daddy took them around to the back to see the amazing amount of frogs in the pool.
My little pig tail girls (so happy I can do something with Ava's hair now)!
I have to take a minute to brag on Ava. She is the best little sleeper ever! She will simply go to sleep wherever she is once she gets tired...when I say wherever, I really mean wherever. She passed out in her high chair while eating french fries. She would wake up a little and start chewing then fall back asleep. It was too funny!
The girls also got to play with a new friend, Kylie. They played with the hose and some water balloons in the front yard. So fun!
We went to the Jacksonville Zoo with my mom and my little brother. The girls had so much fun! It was a blast! Lily told us the day before hand that she was going to go to the zoo to pick a pet. Do you think it's against University Housing Policy to keep an elephant in your apartment?
Her favorite, though, was the stingrays, which we got to pet and feed. I also got her a stuffed stingray to bring home with us. She named it Madison :)
It took a little while, but Grammy and Sissy finally got Ava to enjoy the water (love those chubby little fingers)!
Fun in the fountain!
Nathan took an overnight trip with his Dad and brothers up to South Carolina to go fishing. They came back with 141 lbs of freshwater cat fish! It was crazy!
Ava is the queen of the mess makers!
We went down to my Nana's house one night, too. Lily had gotten a hair cut earlier in the day and the hairdresser curled her hair so pretty! The last pictures are my absolute favorite of Lily! They are so beautiful!
