Time to catch up

Life has been crazy and I have been MIA in the blogging world.  Things have been so chaotic with work and a busy 2 year old makes it almost impossible to have time to myself.  I don't mind though, just look at this little angel.
Averie is one fun little girl.  I feel bad that I have neglected all you from the last few months with her.  She is quite the talker and has such a fun personality.  The tantrums have slowed down a bit...Thank Goodness!  She still has her moments, but the fun Averie definitely outweighs the other side.

We have been up to some fun adventures this summer.  One of the things you all should go do if you haven't already is take a visit over to Kennecott.  The mine is literally 10 minutes from my house and we have never been there in the past 5 years.  We decided to finally take a trip to the mine to see it up close and personal.  It is a pretty incredible site.
This was one of Averie;s "questionable days".  She was ok, but site seeing wasn't the most exciting thing for a 2 year old.
Can we go home yet Mom?

The huge tires of the trucks up at the mine.

Our attempt to get a picture of Averie by the tire.

One thing Averie loved at the mine was the site seeing viewers.  She liked them almost a little too much.

This summer we found a great four wheeling trail right by our house.  It is awesome because we don't have to load the quads up and go anywhere.  I didn't take any pics of the ride, but I did snap a couple of Little Miss before take off.

Our most recent adventure was the trip to the zoo.  We haven't taken Averie this year so I was totally excited to take her to see all the animals that she talks about all the time.  Little tid bit of advise, don't go to the zoo at the end of September.  Don't go at 1:00.  There were so many people I thought I was going to have an anxiety attack!  Plus the kids are ruthless! Averie would wait patiently by the windows waiting to see the animals and just as we got close enough to see anything, kids would just push in front of her!  Urgh.  I just wanted to push them out of the way.  Haha.  Like I said, don't go to the zoo when there are 3 million people there.  A.W.F.U.L.
I love that Averie is starting to "pose" for pictures.  No more screaming and crying when she sees the camera!  Yay!

Averie loved the Sea Lions.  We sat and watch them for probably 20 minutes.  There were two that were playing and jumping all over the place.  They were by far the most exciting part of the zoo.

My little Teddy Bear.
Oh Averie, how I love your facial expressions.

Here are some more pictures of Averie and her best buddy in the whole world, "Dargent".


Making a fort in the family room.

"Give em the face Dargent.  Pose"

"Dargent!!  Don't Kiss!"

Yes, I really am this cute!

Awwww!  Best Friends.  It might be more one sided on Averie's part, but how could Sergeant not like the attention?

Well that was a quick update, but I just wanted to let everyone know that we are alive and well.  I hope everyone had a great summer!

Oh my gosh, she is so cute and has grown up so much! I can't believe how much more hair she has than the last time I saw pictures of her. And the hairstyles you do are so cute. Love it.
