Nightly Nature Trail Walks

The weather has been so beautiful lately that every night after dinner, we've been going on walks outside in our neighborhood. It's really beautiful right now and we are loving the outdoors.

Tim has a new running partner

Fun Trip in Ohio

Here we go...our 1st plane flight for Ms. Avery and us! We went to Tim's cousins wedding in Ohio with the family and we had a great time seeing everyone!

We got to the airport early so we had time to play and lucky us we found the walking escalators. Avery loved them and it was definitely a clock burner!

We also found the real escalators so we had to ride them a few times too!

Here we are in our seat on the plane. Of course, as parents Tim and I were worried how it would go but Avery did awesome!! It was relatively stress free which was nice for all of us!

But, seeing as she did not take a nap because of our exciting day and flight...she immediately passed out in the car on the way to the hotel.

After we got to the hotel, we got ready for the rehearsal dinner. Seeing as we were running late, we waited for the family at the hotel before we went to dinner. Looking so cute in her new outfit!

Avery and Cissy having fun after dinner playing around the restaurant.

All dressed up and ready to party!

Check out her pretty curls

Don't they look adorable all dressed up

Last one on the dance floor...she is a true Penrod/Finkelstein -we always close out the party

Not ready to go back to the room. She wants to join the other party still going on.

Somebody found my makeup...whatever works when you are out of town.

Girlie Girl!

Avery is definitely becoming a Girlie Girl and enjoying all things Girl...shoes, purses and necklaces. We should start a separate savings account right now :)

Ready to go shopping for more jewels


So stinkin' cute!

Sweet girls
It's important for a girl to finish off her outfit with a necklace...but pants would be good too!
