Ava and I decided to spend a little time down at a local event called Arts in the Park. It wasn't planned, but we had a lot of fun. I had a lot of fun watching Ava enjoy the music and dance for lack of a better term. We went to Del's Popcorn Shop and Ava then took a seat at a picnic table to listen to the band play. For being only 6 Ava really enjoyed their music. Then she kept asking me if I remember the songs from when I was a kid. I told her I did know them, but several were before my time or else when I was a baby myself. lol She looked so surprised that I knew these songs. Clearly I am quite old in the eyes of my little girl.
The evening was a bit chilly, but Ava definitely kept herself warm as she danced and ran around to the music. At the end of one of the songs the band even complimented Ava on her dancing and oh was she ever embarrassed on one hand, but on another she absolutely loved the attention as well. The breeze off of the fountain though made me wish I had worn a sweatshirt or something a bit warmer than the t-shirt I was wearing. We stayed until the band was all done and then we decided it was a perfect time to call it a night for us as well. On our way out, a guy from the band gave her a high-five and told her how great she was. She loved that and talked it about it for quite some time. She was certain she was going to make the cover of the local newspaper the following day, but I had to remind her that there wasn't a news reporter there to take her picture, but I told her if there had been a reporter then I am sure she would have made it on the cover of the newspaper. lol This little girl never ceases to amaze me. :)
