We had her birthday party last weekend and it all went fairly smoothly. Greg and/or I did make a trip to Loblaws pretty much everyday for a week, but I guess that is how it works. Thank you to all of our family and friends who came to the party, thanks for all of the great presents for the Aver-doodles, and thanks especially to those of you who helped out. I was really kind of worried how it would all go, especially when Avery refused to take a nap beforehand. But she was a real trooper - it was like she knew that everyone was there for her and she was loving it! :) And of course, presents are always fun. And cake - boy did she love her cake!
In bigger and better news, we are headed to Mexico in a couple of weeks! I cannot even tell you how excited I am. We are going with Ted and Jamie, which is awesome. Mostly for their company and only a little for all of the help they will be with Avery. :) And, she just loves them, so everyone will be happy! We are going to the Mayan Riviera again, to the Paradisus Riviera resort. The only knock on the resort that we have seen is that it is not a party place and there are too many kids. Guess times have changed, haven't they, that we actually seek out this kind of place. Anyhoo, that will probably be my next post at the rate I am going so I will fill you all in on the trip then!
