I haven't really done the whole blog thing for a long time so I want to catch up a little bit....We went to Tropic reservoir while ago with our friends the Pead's. It was a nice little getaway, short and sweet. I am not a fan of camping with a little one just because we ruined her sleeping schedule on this trip. But Avree loved eating rocks and dirt and just being dirty.

Our early morning hike...since we were awake super early thanks to the squeeker in the middle

Our next camping trip was with my family to Moab. My sissy Heather and her family are Jeepers so they hooked us up. We almost passed on the trip since Jeremy had just had his surgery and wasn't feeling too amazing, so we brought the lazy boy so he could relax in comfort. Again, not great sleeping with Avree again, especially since we slept in the back of our truck this time, bad bad idea. bad.
Avree is so content rocking with her dad. Look at the chubbyness. sooo squishy:)
Here are 2 of the 3 Jeeps we had there, my brother in law Skip has the white beast and his buddy Jason has the red one. Its crazy to drive up to a ledge and just roll on up like it's nothing. ohh fun.
Playing in the dirt and eating rocks while her dad was "watching" her

Moab is so pretty, it looks like the St George area on steroids. Arches national park was nice, there is over 200 arches there

Me and my mom at the double arches.
We haven't been up to our usual summer partying :( hopefully Jeremy will heal fast, at his dr appointment he said 5 more weeks til he would be good to go, but I hope its faster. I am crossing my fingers.
The traditional day at the lake on the 4th of July. It was fun to be able to wakeboard again, I hadn't boarded since before I was pregnant. Avree liked the boat, not so much the life jacket.

This year I planted a garden, I am hooked. I love being able to run out to the garden and grab fresh veggies for dinner. Avree is so helpful at picking tomatoes, they are one of her favorite things to eat, she will eat everything but the skin. I am constantly finding skins all over the kitchen floor. (just found out today that tomatoes are not good for the little ones though. oops. no more for her)
Avree also likes to help me water the garden.
Avree is growing way too fast, she learn new things all the time.
She's been crawling for almost 2 months now, my house has never looked the same since. She claps, smacks her lips, clicks her tongues, gives the best slobber kisses-and raspberry kisses. She pulls up on everything and walks along the couches and walls and will go anywhere with no problem. I am just waiting for her to start walking any day now-as long as it's not while I'm at work, but at least Jeremy will be there if she did. She dances, sings and jibber jabbers. She says dad, mom and ball, hello, bye...I'm pretty sure she knows what they mean too. If I say Hi Grandma, she will turn to Grandma and wave and she will go find her ball when you ask her where it is. Of course I think my child is brilliant :) We finally got her to sleep through the night. She has the cutest crinkled nose smile. She still only has her 2 bottom teeth. She dropped from the 97% to the 91% in weight. wowsa skinny little thing!
