a slice of summer...

summer is so close.  we spent a good amount of time outside this past weekend hanging out in the back yard. we lathered on sunscreen and let the kids dump water on our legs and splash in the pool.  a little sneak peek of our weekend ---

a little slice of summer.

ava played in her first ever soccer tournament on saturday, and had a great time!  she had 4 games, and did pretty well!  she enjoyed playing with her friends, getting her face painted, receiving her trophy and dancing to the loud music :) even though she was a muddy mess, it was well worth it!

ava and coach noah

i wasn't kidding about her dancing...

building relationships + kindness = ava...

ava was awarded citizen of the month for her 1st grade class for possessing april's character trait "building relationships + kindness". 

on friday, april 27th we attended a special breakfast for the citizens who were chosen, and each child received a certificate and a "coyote" bandanna.  the bandanna can be worn for the entire month of may to symbolize that she was given the award.  she was so excited!

yay ava!  so proud of our girl!  its hard to believe 1st grade is coming to and end!

down on preston's farm [a birthday party post]...

on saturday, april 21 we celebrated the little mister turning two!  sarah found the sweetest barnyard invites on etsy, and the rest was history!  she got the banner, cupcake toppers, door sign and table signs from etsy too.  i thought the colors were perfect.  guests came decked out in their western wear, and there was even a petting zoo for everyone to enjoy!  it was the perfect day to celebrate a perfect two year old!

some of the fun decor

the cutest little cowboy i've ever seen!

some candid and posed shots of the guests :)

preston kept trying to bust into his presents before it was time, and aunt britt and i might have helped a little [and in true two year old fashion, he was over presents once it was time to really open them! ha!]

the cutest texans these two crazy kiddos!

me and my girl, and my girl with aunt sarah. love these two crazy girls :)

the birthday boy and his cupcake :)
