Happy Birthday Ava!

Today is Ava's birthday! I can't believe she is 4 years old already! Each year I wonder how it is possible another year has passed. This year is no different. Time certainly does not stand still for anyone or anything. I enjoy Last year Ava experienced our local Children's Museum for the first time on her birthday. This year both Ava and Alyssa enjoyed the museum again. We even had a little picnic after our adventures at the Children's Museum. After that it was time to head home and get ready for her birthday party with our family.

Ava playing with the water table. I think she just likes to play in the water more than anything. But then again don't most kids!

Ava and Alyssa playing on this wall of "gears" where you can put these little pieces together and spin them around. It is pretty interesting actually.

Ava and Alyssa grocery shopping! It was so funny watching the girls pick and choose what items to put in their cart and what they didn't put in their cart. Kind of amusing really! :)

The girls playing in the doctor station. They were taking care of the little babies and then of course making sure they washed their hands before handling the babies.

Congresswoman Alyssa of Illinois. I love this picture of Alyssa. It is actually the part of the museum which talks about the life of the historic 16th President of the United States Abraham Lincoln.

Ava loves this Train Town table. She could play with this for hours I think.

Alyssa on this windy kind of path thing-y. LOL For lack of a better description. It is really cool whatever you call it.

Another view of Alyssa climbing up this crazy contraption.

Ava playing in the bubbles. This is one of my favorite parts of the museum. I love these huge wands that make these gigantic bubbles.

Birthday presents and cupcakes. What is so funny is my sister and I both bought the same gift bag for Ava's gifts, and then both of my brothers picked the same gift bags for Ava's gifts. All at different times. lol

Ava, Alyssa, and Jordan. I can't believe this year I didn't get a group shot of all the kids together. After this there was a water balloon fight which I missed because I was inside. All in all a great birthday party for Ava.
