Well, this weekend Eric was not on call and we didn't have any house guests. It was great! We were able to do whatever we wanted! Saturday we decided to head to the park between naps. The weather was gorgeous and we want to take advantage of it all we can before it turns cold. Avery loves the sandbox and going down the slide in our laps. Since she's still not walking she's a little limited in what she can do but still has fun. We also took a stroll around the pond in the park and looked at the fish and geese.
At the park, Avery discovered she loves pinecones (you can see her holding one in the bottom picture). She was great with it too! I figured she would try to put it in her mouth but nope she just wanted to look at it and feel it. So cute!
That night, Eric's parents watched Avery and we were able to have a date night! YAY!! It had been way to long since we were able to spend some time by ourselves. We went to one of our favorite restaurants and had an incredible, leisurely meal. It was so nice!
Sunday we were suppose to have Avery's one year pictures taken. However, there was a miscommunication with the photographer and we weren't able to do it. The worst part was that we got up early that morning, got all of us cleaned up, fed, and dressed only to wait around for 30 minutes and not have her show. She apologized profusely but it's not easy to get all of that done before 7 in the morning. Now we are going to have to do it again next weekend. Ugh!
Sunday was another perfect day weather wise so we played out in the yard for a while, took a walk with some neighbor friends and their kids, and then grilled that evening. Nothing too exciting but it was nice to just relax and not worry about Eric getting called into work.
I hope you all had a great weekend, too!
