Avalon's Birthday Week

Happy Friday!  We have had quite the last couple of weeks over here, lots going on & not much time to pause to take a breath, but making sweet memories, just the way we like it.  Last weekend, my husband and I took a little overnight trip a few hours away for one of my best friend's weddings.  This trip was much-needed, and worth every bit of the day it took to pack enough for us to get the girls to my in-laws to make it happen. ;)  Everything was breathtakingly beautiful, especially the bride!  We ate & drank way too much, and had a little extra excitement when we were caught in a flash flood on the charter bus on the way home with some of our best friends- for over four hours, until four am, a night we definitely won't ever forget!

And Avalon's birthday week!  My littlest is officially one, we greeted her on her birthday by busting in her room singing "happy birthday", Waverly was no doubt the most excited of us all.  She picked out Avalon a little present the day before, some cars, Avalon is obsessed with all things with wheels (which makes daddy very proud!).  We had birthday pancakes, Waverly & I made cupcakes while Avalon napped, I took the girls to the waterpark, then we had dinner followed by a little cake for our one-year old.  Exhausting but so, so much fun, celebrations are our favorite and there's no one worth celebrating more than my little ladies!


We are so excited to end the week with a garden party for miss Avalon Elle tomorrow.  Can't wait to share pictures soon, in the meantime, a complete picture overload of Waverly & Avalon kicking the party off a little early last weekend, these are some of my favorite photos ever!  These girls, they make my heart burst.


I've been posting at really weird times this week (just trying to get it done when I could!) - but here is a little birthday post for Avalon Elle & a last day of school post for Waverly Maye, in case you missed either.

Wishing you all the happiest weekend!

  5. Four hours? That sounds worse than my box truck comedy show! At least we can laugh about it. And Avalon with no bow is as cute as her with a bow....she is ADORABLE!!!
