The adventures of Ava in Whinfell Forest!

We just got back from our trip to Whinfell Forest it was so much fun!

Unfortunately Ben got sick so he had to go home early poor little birthday boy! He still got to go swimming though but didn't get to try out the bike trailer.

Ava LOVED swimming and sitting in the trailer. She had a blast in the play parks and generally playing in the forest. Doug and I really enjoyed cycling and getting up and sitting on the lake with some starbucks fruit toast and iced hazelnut lattes. The pool was awesome and the lake was really pretty. Doug and Phil played badminton and Poker and enjoyed themselves a lot.

Now I REALLY want to live there ha ha only a few grand a week... that's likely :O) xxx

A morning at the park!

Ava, Vicki, Freya and I spent the morning at the park today. We had fun, Ava loved everything in there. She's so grown up. She will be 18 months old on the 20th!

We're off to the Lake district on Monday for the week and we're going to celebrate Ben's birthday there. It will be a blast :O)

Take care! x

The sun has got his hat on :)

Finally spring is here!

But what is with all the freaky weather? Sunshine, rain, Sunshine, hail, Sunshine, thunder!

A huge lightning storm last Tuesday took out our wireless router and some little ned broke our car window on Friday night. Glasgow huh! Needless to say we're now broke after those expenses.

And eating Jessi's thin mint cookies (don't worry I'll pay for them, but yum!).

Then it's off to the lake district for Ben's birthday which should be AWESOME!

Okay Ava update time: She now says Mumma, Daey, Dinnah, 'tis, whazis, 'side (outside) and a few other random tidbits. She's a big girl already in 2-3year clothing. And as always she loves to dance. Her ears prick up at the slightest sound of music and she stops whatever she's doing just to dance.
She's more and more beautiful each day, no idea where she gets it from :O)

Today we went to the park and sat on the grass together then ran around by the fountain. She's so happy outside and she gets smiles from everybody who passes. She loves to walk without her reigns now and she always holds my hand, she's growing up so fast. She is a proffesional eater now and can completely feed herself with a spoon or fork barely dropping a thing. Doug and I both marvel at how smart she is, we introduced her to a lidless cup this week and she got the hang of it within ten minutes.Oh and my favourite thing if you say "jump" she'll stop and jump on the spot xxx

Super *&^"$%* Mario!

I have Mario rage!

I don't know what it is about that game but it makes me so mad! I have pondered throwing my DS against a wall. Doug is scared of me!

Thankfully I'm on the last level!

Cross your fingers for me that I complete it tonight as the rage may take me over if not! And that won't be pretty.
