The New Vacuum

Totally not my thing but Chris was pretty excited. I do not Vacuum, but Chris loves to. It was time for a new vacuum and since it is seriously one of Chris's favorite things to do we got a nice one. We probably have the cleanest carpet in Henry County, maybe even Georgia.

It is purple. I did pick that part out.

It is like Christmas day for Topher!!
Ohh Daddy I can help!!
Ta da!!

Ava's 1st Trip to Zoo Atlanta

Today Chris and I took Ava to Zoo Atlanta for the first time. She loves animals so we figured now was a good age to visit the zoo. It was a hot day but we really enjoyed the trip. Her favorite exibit was the new parakeet habitat. It is an outdoor exibit where the parakeets fly all around you and you can feed them. We thought she might be scared because sometimes when we go to Randar's Pet Shop the birds scare her, but she loved it. She loves watching the birds in the yard and she loved the parakeets.

Sorry the pictures are in the wrong order.

One happy girl

Our new bird feeder

Here are a few pictures of our newest friends around the house. Ava loves birds so Chris bought us this new bird feeder to watch all the birds.

Ava's 1st Twinkie

All Chris's idea!! I didn't even know we had Twinkies. As you can see Ava really enjoyed her dessert tonight!!

Lunch Date in the City

Okay so we don't really get out much. On Tuesday we met Chelsey downtown for lunch. Since Chelsey knows all the good places in Atlanta we ate at one of her favorites Pizza Fusion. It is an organic Earth friendly pizza place ( right up Chelsey's alley, but far from anything I eat at). It was really good and Ava and I really enjoyed our organic lunch and of course Chelsey. I must say the best part of the lunch was the trip we made over to the cupcake bakery next door. Chelsey would always bring me cupcakes so leave it to her to pick a place next to cupcakes. Hopefully on our next lunch date we will eat near her favorite donut shop!!

Sorry I didn't take any pictures of the cupcakes ( yes cupcakes with an S. I had 3 ....yummy!!)

4th of July

Here are a couple of pictures from our 4th of July weekend at Meme and Ping's pool. I took a bunch of pictures but didn't think everyone wanted their picture posted on the blog of them in a bathing suit, so her are some of the best I found. We had a blast and are thankful for the beautiful weather. We wished it could have been nice Sunday and Monday but 2 out of 4 isn't bad.
