I usually only post once a week, but the past couple of days have been jam packed with activities. If I wait until Wednesday my camera may explode.
On Thursday Ava and I were excited to host Laura and Theo Zeltner for breakfast (Gus was at preschool). Oliver (the husband/daddy) is in Josh's section at the law school. Ava loved playing with a baby.
We decided to try some shaving cream letter writing. Ava exclaimed, "Mmmm, it smells like Daddy!" At first she tried writing with her fingers.
Concentrating on her name, click to make this picture larger.
She's getting really good at writing her name.
J and JK have introduced us to a new park. There is a large pond, playground, walking trail AND ducks and geese. The girls were checking out the wildlife.
Another beautiful (and slightly warmer) day at Cambridge Park.
On Friday night we headed to Orr Family Farm to visit the pumpkin patch. Gus (far left) is a fellow law orphan*. The cutie in the middle is his cousin. There were also two tiny babies on this adventure, but they were busy having their diapers changed at this point.

A little bummed that the spontaneous rain shower kept the train parked at the station. We get to go back and ride another day. To ease the train pain she picked out a cute lamb backpack. She named it Shiver.
Saturday was a day of birthdays. First was a princess themed party for our new friend Gabby, also a law orphan.
After a long afternoon nap we headed to a Thomas themed party for Gus. Ava just so happened to have THE perfect outfit.
Is this normal?
Josh will be attending a dinner with Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy on Thursday night. The dress: business dressy. So on Sunday afternoon we went suit shopping. We knew this would happen eventually in law school, just never dreamed it would be so soon. Ava kept herself entertained while Daddy shopped.
My handsome fella'
The suit should be ready and freshly tailored on Wednesday afternoon AND it was 50% off, woohoo!
