 My parents finally came back from their mission in Australia a couple weeks ago. Doug, Averi, and I all went down to visit (me for 2 weeks, Doug for 4 days). It was fun to see Averi get re-aquainted with her grandma and grandpa since she was only about 6 months old when they left. She actually warmed up to them really quickly and loved spending time with them.
Here is Averi and Grandma teasing each other. Averi thought this game was pretty funny.
Averi and Kenley getting re-aquainted :) They had somewhat of a love-hate relationship while we were there. They would fight and pick on each other but yet they would also hold hands and ask for each other when they were apart. Averi would always be concerned about Kenley if she got hurt or went to bed. She would say "Keh-ee eh uh ny ny" (Kenley went night night) or "Keh-ee eh uh owee" (Kenley got an owee). I have gotten pretty good at cracking all her codes and translating her language for others.

This is the girlies in their strollers when we went to the farmers market.

The whole time we were there Averi was infatuated by the ponies and the horses (or as she calles them "ah-seez") The would probably sit outside and just watch them all day if I'd let her.

We had a late combined birthday party for the girls. Averi got spoiled once again with some great gifts and everyone had a great time.

The Cobbs hosted a dutch oven dinner one of the nights with tons of delicious food and of course a game of baseball and football. The girls got to play baseball but we opted to be spectators (and some cheerleaders) for the football game. As the photo shows, the guys did not play lightly and most were about dead when the game was finally over.

Here is Averi insisting on helping Kylie make the lemonade.

And of course no trip to Boise would be complete without my dad pulling the kids behind the 4-wheeler in the old toy Jeep. Averi LOVED riding in it with Kaly and she would wave and say "Hi Mommy!" every time she drove by me. So cute.

I had tons more pics but they somehow got "corrupted" on my camera so this is it.

I can't believe she is two already. I love the pigtails too! I can't wait for Charlotte's hair to be long enough for that.

What a fun trip! We miss you guys tons. Sadly I didn't get as many pictures as I would have liked but I can send you what I do have since yours got corrupted. That is so sad!
