Refreshing Restful Weekend

We had a fabulous weekend. Casey and Charlie came down Saturday and we spent the day playing with guess who. She was in such a good mood. Barely fussed at all. She played and toddled around. It was sooooo cute. She laughed and called the cat - "Ki Ki" (Kitty Kitty) over and over. She even almost caught her. It was so cute to watch her squat down and call her as Sid was trying to find some escape from Avery under the vehicle. We had our "Easter Dinner" a week late with a different menu. As you recall our Easter plans were changed. I planned on doing a recipe post with Saturdays meal but I forgot to photograph it so I will save that for another time. It was delicious though. So we ate together and visited. Avery enjoyed once again gazing at Josh which is still pretty funny. We spent time outside. Averys daddy picked her a flower which she enjoyed. Avery got to swing a little. It was so sweet to see her clapping when she was happy about something and saying "yay". It was a beautiful day. Avery loved it. I loved watching her laugh at the things that amused her. In this case it was her silly Poppa. She has a cute little laugh. The guys even found something to do! We missed Mark who was studying hard in Ruston. If he had been here - perfection. It was a great day. I took a ton of pictures of course. I think Avery was getting sick of the photos at this point. LOLDoesnt it look like she is saying "Nonna, this is getting ridiculous." LOL
On Sunday we got to go to church together. The first time in a long time. Avery did really good. As a matter of fact the nursery worker "also known as Poppa" did a fantastic job and got her to sleep as well as her new friend Amaus. After church we went to La Fiesta for lunch. Avery did so good. She just sat in her high chair eating french fries and chicken. She didnt make a peep. That was the first restaurant trip we have taken her to that was enjoyable for her. It was fun. Everything seemed so normal. LOL If you dont know what thats about click here to read this previous post. Avery even got her first taste of a KoolAid Kool Burst. Isn't that what Nonna's are for? I hope she doesnt have a red dye allergy. hee hee I look forward to more weekends like this one. I am planning on going to see her at her house this coming weekend. We are going to do the March of Dimes Walk which we are proud to be a part of. So Casey, Charlie, Avery, and I will be walking on Saturday. I will again have my camera and hope it's another beautiful Saturday. You may or may not get to find out. OK you WILL get to find out cause I am a picture taking maniac. I admit it.

If the red dye doesn't do it for her, just throw in some chocolate/powdered donuts. If I were her Sunday School teacher, she could have all that... and chocolate milk! ;)
Glad you got to have a "normal" weekend. Still don't really know what "normal" is, but glad you got it. =)
