It's the most wonderful day of the year...Cow Appreciation Day! We appreciated some cows and got free Chick-Fil-A. Good times! Good times! (You can see last year's Cow Appreciation Day here. She's grown so much!)

I saw the sweetest little idea on Pinterest the other day...flower petal face painting. I had some flowers that were on the way out so I thought it would be fun to try it. Avery and I picked the petals off the flowers, grabbed some honey, and headed to the backyard. We dabbed honey on each other's faces and then stuck the petals on it. Avery was a little unsure at first and kept saying, "Mommy, you don't put honey on children." Once she realized I was making her a necklace, she loved it. Then when she got to do it to me, she REALLY loved it.

Our local library hosted Reptiles with Miss Ruby a couple weeks ago. I was prepared for Avery to totally freak out and want to go home. Much to my surprise though, she was all over those reptiles! She thought the baby alligator was so cute and didn't want to let it go. I couldn't believe how brave she was (hence the documentation). You go, Avery! Just don't ever ask us for a pet [insert any kind of scary reptile].

Here are a few classic Averyisms from the past couple of months:
I was struggling to put together a piece of IKEA furniture. Avery said, "Let's call daddy. He's a boy. He can fix it."
"I just burped like a dinosaur!"
Avery: "I don't feel good."
Cody: "What's wrong?"
Avery: "I have a booger in my nose."
"No, Liam! I'm freaking out!"
"I'm a bit hungry."
"I'm a bit tired."
"No, I don't need to go to the doctor. I got my booger out."
Me: "Just try it! You used to love avocados when you were a baby."
Avery: "Well, I'm not a baby anymore."
Pretending to talk on the phone: "No, Pops. You have to be nice to Ginger. Woody is being crazy like a dog. Bye."
Me: "Did you toot?"
Avery: "Uhh, not sure."
"I'm drawing daddy. He needs one head. One beard."
Me: "Should we have chicken, tacos, or pizza?"
Avery: "Umm, I just want cake."
Me: "Can you tell me a joke?"
Me: "Do you want me to put honey on your waffle?"
Avery: "I want you to put taquitos on my waffle."
Me: "You better not buy that movie. You don't have any money."
Avery: "Well Gammy probably has some money. Maybe she can."

Here are a few pictures from our first beach visit of the summer a couple of weeks ago. Granny joined us and brought all the fun...sand castles, beach toys, seashells, and a game of tag. It was a really pretty night aaaaand no seaweed, which is always a win!
