Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus -- NOT

I thought it would be a great idea to go to the circus, but Avery did not like it. She was fine until we saw clowns, and this was at the pre-show. After seeing the clowns all she would say is "No see the show". Alan and I kept on trying to distract her, pointing things out for her to see. It worked for a little bit, but not for the whole performance. She was so scard that she was shaking. We actually left at the intermission, we tried really hard to brib her into staying, but it didn't work. I personally was enjoying the circus, I don't think I have been to one since elementary school. I don't think we will try the circus again until she is atleast 5. Hopefully my ideas will be better in the future. Note, the pictures are all before her seeing the clowns.

4th of July Weekend

We had somewhat of a busy weekend. Avery and I headed to Brenham on Friday morning and went to the 4th of July parade in Chappell Hill.

We then spent time at Meme and Papa's house on Friday afternoon. Avery also enjoyed some watermelon.
On Saturday evening we went out to the lake and Avery had a good time riding in the Barbie Jeep. Thank goodness it will be 13 1/2 years until she can drive herself in a real car. She steps on the gas and looks in the total opposite way.

Happy Birthday Daddy!!

Alan likes Oatmeal Raisin Cookies so I thought it was a good idea, last night, to make him cookies for this birthday. Well, I mentioned this to Avery before making sure I had all the ingredients. Big mistake, I didn’t have any brown sugar. When I told her we couldn’t make the cookies she starting crying saying, “grocery store, buy some more”. She knew exactly where to go to get more brown sugar. I told her we could make them later in the week, her cry then went up a notch to screaming her head off. So I looked in the pantry and I had marshmallows, so we made Rice Krispies – she was happy then. This morning when she woke up she reminded me that we needed to go to the grocery store so we could make daddy cookies.

Daddy was already gone this morning when Avery woke up, so she didn’t have a chance to sing Happy Birthday to her Daddy, so I got her to do it on camera.

Hope everyone is having a good week.
