Hi Everyone! Here's a little update for you about what we've been up to. Avery moved into a big, big bed!!! We've officially put the crip away and now our tiny 2-year-old is in a double bed! She loves it! So now we're all ready for guests to come and stay with us in Colorado! You visitors can have the nice butterfly/flowers bed spread and Avery can camp out on her crib mattress on the floor somewhere. So, make your reservations now!

Then, Grandpa came for a visit! He had some work nearby and came for a nice lunch with the Smith fam. Avery loved showing off her new room and giving Grandpa a tour of the house and her favorite toys!!!

We finally got below 85 degrees around here, so we made a break for our first trip to the Denver Zoo. It was pretty fun! Avery seemed to have some sort of mental checklist to see all the animals as quickly as possible. No sooner than we got to one animal, she was ready to move on to the next one! But she settled down after lunch and started to enjoy the exhibits more. Here's our friend, bear who looked right at us!!
Here's the fam on the train and some other zoo pics. Avery loved riding her panda bear and playing in the covered wagon. Then I threw a random one on the end. It's a picture that Avery took of her stuffed animals on her bed.... not bad, huh?
