What a great weekend and another busy week ahead of us! Friday night we had Dani, Nathan and Jane Swisher over to BBQ. They just moved here from CA because Nathan is doing an internship for his doctorate here in the Springs. We have been looking forward to them moving here for awhile because Avery and Jane are only a few months apart. I have known Dani and Nathan since middleschool/junior high, but haven't seen either of them since highschool. So it has been fun to reconnect with them! We have gotten Avery and Jane together twice now, they are learning how to play together and most of all SHARE their toys with one another. This can be such a tough stage! They were so sweet to give Avery a new baby doll, she absolutely loves it! Thanks guys!
Saturday was busy! I went for an early ride in black forest with Laura. She recently got a bike, so it was our first time riding together! It was a blast and a beautiful morning to ride! We had to go early because Gabe had football practice so we managed to ride 25 miles before getting myself home by 8:15. I took Avery to Cottonwood park for awhile to play and walk and then we went to visit Jarred and Heather at their garage sale. Then...we met Gabe after his practice for their ice cream social. Avery was exhausted after all this, so we went home for a good nap! The rest of the day was spent hanging out at a family. We decided to head to Garden of the Gods to hang out and of course we picked up Sonic drinks on the way! Can't go wrong with Sonic and Garden of the Gods!!
We drove around Old Colorado City for awhile after walking around Garden of the Gods. It was a great way for Gabe and I to spend some time together. Avery was very content playing with her new baby in her carseat! She is such a little Momma!
