August 13th was Ava's actual birthday. I didn't take very many pictures, but Bethany did. She is bringing her camera and memory cards on Labor Day for us to download so I will add more as soon as I get those downloaded. I was just so busy taking care of Ava and doing things that I didn't get many pictures. Bradley was bust with the camcorder so he couldn't take pictures.
Anyway, it was a great birthday. We started the day by going to Wal-Mart and having Ava's pictures made (which you already saw). After that, we headed to Union City to the McDonald's Playland which is not intended for children under 3. Since there were no other kids there, I decided to take Ava down the slide. Big mistake! Once you get so high up in there, you have to go down the slide. We were stuck in a tunnel and Ava started crying, and I was about to cry to. It was scary, but we made it down and Bethany caught it on camera. Like I said, I will post those after Labor Day.
After that, Bethany wanted to buy Ava a pool so we went to Wal-Mart got a pool and Ava went swimming. She cried at first and I had to get in (fully clothed) with her. She warmed up to it pretty quick and had a great time splashing around (and looking cute in her swimsuit!).
Nana, Pop, and Aunt Bethany came over for a supper of leftovers from Ava's big party, and then it was time for presents and cake. All in all, it was a fun, but tiring day. And now my baby has been 1 for a week! Man, time flies!
