Our computer crashed a few weeks ago so we had to send it in to get it fixed. 3 1/2 weeks and a new hard-drive later I finally have a computer. I cant seem to find my regular camera (hopefully it will turn up soon!) so I dont have many pics but this is what we have been up to:
Our anniversary was on Sept 23 so we got a sitter and went out to eat at the WigWam Resort. It was really fun to get out and eat a nice meal without all the interruptions that come along with eating with a baby (as cute and loveable as she is). We enjoyed eating out on the patio and eavesdropping on the neighboring table (pretty sure it was a profesional athete of some sort).
Averi learned to walk! She has been walking for a couple weeks now and has almost given up crawling entirely. She thinks she is a big girl now and is loving it. I love it that her clothes arent getting so filthy all the time now like with crawling.
We went with some friends up to a cabin in Pinetop, AZ. It was so fun to hang out with friends and to escape the heat of the valley. Averi had fun too minus the sleepless nights (I guess she was scared or something because she would wake up multiple times both nights...it was just fabulous) and the ride home. She cried for 2 1/2 hours STRAIGHT! I dont know if shew as car-sick or what but she was fine when we got home and man were we ready to get home! But other than THAT.... it was great :)
I gave yet another talk in sacrament meeting on Sunday. Apparently I slipped through the cracks and the new bishopric thought I hadnt spoke yet. I spoke on gratitude (hence Pres Monson's talk in General Conference). It went quite well but I'm glad it's behind me.
Katelyn (the girl I babysit a couple days a week) was on fall break so I got to have her all day on Monday. I took her and Averi to the Childrens Museum of Phx and met a friend of mine there. We all had so much fun and anyone who has kids and hasn't been there, I highly recommend going. We were there for 3 1/2 hours and Katelyn still wasnt ready to go. They have a pretend grocery store-complete with isles full of fake food, mini shopping carts, checkout lines and cash registers. They also had a seperate area for just babies under 3 years which Averi loved.
