I think James and I found a great way to make the most of the different seasons with these bucket lists we put together. It has been a lot easier to get an idea of the various things we would like to do and then write them down. Plus it helps when I post it here. :p So here are a few things we have being doing this summer after my last summer post. Every year Ogden Clinic had a Lagoon day (this year sadly was the last year). They don't pay for Toddlers and we didn't have the money to get Avery an all day pass, but we still had tons of fun. Our friends Karen and James have season passes; so they brought their little girl to spend a few hours with us. The only free rides Avery could go on was the train, carousel and Ferris wheel. We had a nice day. We walked around Pioneer park a lot looking at the different museums and buildings, rode the train and the carousel and did something that I never had done before at Lagoon. We actually sat down and watched one of the shows. It was fun to just listen to all the talented singers and watch my cute little girl dancing to the music and mimicking their dance moves. Avery also loved the train and the animals, no matter how much I tried I could not get her to look away. :p Also this year was the first time Avery wasn't afraid of the carousel, so we ended up going twice. :p She even wanted to ride the cat that went up and down, something that she was terrified of, but loved this year. :)
I had a great birthday too the same day as the fireworks we had a fun little birthday dinner for myself and Ilia (my new sister in law). My actual birthday I got a little surprise from James. I woke up to find a cute little James and Avery made candy bouquet waiting for me.
Avery had no problems helping me eat some of the candy. :p
While James was away we had a garage sale which was mostly Avery and I racing match box cars down our steep driveway. :) We did get a few sales but not enough to cover the cost of going to the upcoming family reunion at Lake Tahoe which we were hoping for. So we decided to have a little stay-cation of our own.
We had built a blanket fort, made popcorn and homemade ice cream and finally rented the movie Frozen to watch. Avery didn't make it to long through it all, but it was still fun. :)
I know she looks naked but she has her pajama shorts on, she decided she wanted to take off her shirt. We have also had fun in Avery's tiny pool in the backyard.
We've also been doing a lot of fun games like hide and go seek...
