After picking up Lilie from Girl Scout Camp we met Josh's family for dinner and coffee. The cousins had lots of fun!

One evening while Lilie was at camp Ava and I snuck into our neighbors back yard and bounced.

Ava likes to say "Peace out!"

Ava had her first solo swim lessons this week. She cried a bit the first two days but got the hang of things and Miss Emily earned her trust and they were off and kicking, bubbling and going underwater.

while sister is away

While Lilie was in Santa Cruz at Girl Scout Camp Ava and I did a few things.

Panda Express and Fro-Yo!Picture taking

Ava swam in her blow-up pool and ended up like this a lot!
Put our feet up
And most importantly we Skyped with Lilie.

Ava's favorite thing to do.
Ava asked every day if it was time to pick up her sister. I think she liked being an only child a bit but missed her sister more.
