Avery celebrated her very first Cinco-de-Mayo...and boy was it a fiesta to remember! The party started early with lunch at the local PuertoVallartamexican restaurant...where she dined on a chicken chimichanga, rice, and beans complements of her mother's plate. Two Senioritas at the door gave her a sweet Jose' Cuervo balloon for the ride home. Avery was a very happy girl...for approximately 20 minutes until she remembered how much she hates riding home in her car seat. So like any good grandpa, Poppo sped up a little to make the trip slightly shorter for his little chica. ...And that's when the fiesta went sour!! Flashing lights in the rear view mirror...el Crap-o! What kind of cop would give a speeding ticket to an old man driving his daughter and granddaughter home? I think Avery's Jose' Cuervo Balloon is what did us in!! Sorry Grandpa!!
While we were home, we hit the new shopping plaza in Gig Harbor with Auntie Anglea. We were impressed! They have a new baby boutique that is super cute...the true religion jeans for babies was a little much, but still adorable. We hung out with Great Grandma and Grandpa on the waterfront before cousin Ashley's birthday dinner.
We did it again! This was Avery's 4th cross country flight and back in her short little life thus far. Every time I get on that plane with her, alone...for a SIX HOUR flight, I ask myself the same question...WHY?? Why do I do this to myself? Is it worth all the screaming, kicking, biting...ok, so I only bit her once. Ok...Yes, it is worth all the agony to have two whole weeks of fun with our family and friends! There was lots to see and do. Here are a few pics from our trip!
