Well, we've been lacking in the photo posts lately, so here's some pics to catch up. Erin and Tyler came for a visit this weekend- following Erin's bro's wedding in Colorado Springs. We met them down at Garden of the Gods and had fun on our "adventure" as Avery called it (some tricky wordage to get her to like hiking). Avery posing in crazy wind and by some cool rocks.

Here, Avery is very excited about her bravery in hiking up a rock formation. Very proud (like a peacock- 100 points if you get that reference) and with a grubby face.

Avery and her favorite buddy, Erin...

Avery and one of her new favorite buddies, Tyler.
The following are some random pictures of Avery being three. Here, she's playing her tuba- get it... inner tube, but wearing it like a tuba- and she zerberts on it.
Lately, Avery's been really into shoving as many toys as possible into her backpack or purses and then taking all of them with her wherever she goes. Here's us going on a walk recently...

Here's her stash on a recent trip to the mall. Note- blankie, Rocket the kitty, 3 purses and a backpack- just for a trip to the mall.
In other news- for those of you who don't know yet, we'll be visiting the great state of Indiana for the middle two weeks in June. So clear you schedules to hang out with the Smiths!!! We can't wait to see everyone and visit all of the old haunts- Greek's pizza anyone???
