happy 4th birthday, ava!!

sunday, lyla and i enjoyed some wonderful quality one-on-one mother/daughter time. i'll be honest, i really like the fact that she is now starting to get invited to her own classmate's birthday parties because it's time focused more around just her. and each child deserves that one-on-one attention with their parent. there have been many times were lyla has wanted to go to one of abby's classmate's parties, but simply couldn' it was her turn. so off we went in honor of her friend ava's 4th birthday party at mountain brook gymnastics. the party started at 2:00pm where they got to run, jump, and play on all the various equipment below as the parents watched from the bleachers upstairs. lyla was having a blast. here are some pics...about an hour later, we meet up with our kids and head into the designated party room for cake. we all sing "happy birthday" to ava and watched as she blew out the candles on her princess cake. later, lyla and all of her OLS classmates got together for a quick pic. happy birthday, ava!
