Ava and I spent a wonderful 10 days in Michigan this summer. Although I have very few photos of documentation. Pa and Uncle Chris arrive here soon for some northwest fun and we are hoping to make a return visit in October. I LOVE fall in Michigan so I am planning on a complete Ava shoot and some family shots. I have decided I need to improve on the family snap shot front. I seem to miss those everyday moments.
Grammy prepared the house for toddler Ava, complete with a new bed and room of her own! We got lots of good quality time with the whole crew complete with a trip to the Detroit Zoo, boy did that bring back some memories!
This summer Ava also got to spend a couple days with my cousins daughter, Tessa. They are about 5 months apart and with each visit home it is exciting to see how their interaction changes. The blow up pool was a big hit along with the sandbox which Ava referred to as “the beach!”
Each time I am home it is a reminder of just how hard it can be to live so far away. I am so incredibly grateful that we have been able to travel back so often. I believe this trip was Ava’s 10th. Not bad for two years old!
