4th of July

We had a great time celebrating 4th of July with our friends and family.

Dan & Melinda, Josh & Elisia and their families as well as us and our parents enjoyed great food, fun and fireworks! Melinda, as usual, hosted a way-better-than Martha Stewart spread and festive party. Ava Lu had fun swimming in the spa with Danielle. She even her first try at sparklers (mommy was a bit nervous).
Naturally, Ava Lu headed for the spa before I could snap a photo of her in her red & white 4th of July wear. Oh well, we had fun celebrating our country's freedom and Ava's 2nd year in the USA.

June fun

June was a busy month that flew by. Not without some fun and parties though!

Ava Lu "met" Cinderella (affectionately known as "rella") at a play and after party that Nana took Ava and I to in Folsom. As you can see from the pictures she loved wearing her princess dress and meeting another princess. It was too cute!

And, we went to Ava Lu's first tea party - a Lady Bug picnic tea party at a local tea house. How perfect is that? We went with our dear friends as their birthday gift to Ava Lu. It was such a fun time.

All these new experiences are a true joy to share with my daughter. She's now been to a live play and a tea party with real china.

Looking forward to more summer fun in July & August!
