Happy 1st Birthday to Ava!

Today helped celebrate Ava Leigh's 1st birthday. Her party was held at the Miami Children's Museum of Science. What a wonderful place for a birthday party. It was wonderful to be around so many Guate tots, the kids had a blast. Ava was precious in her birthday dress, what a princesa she is! Cutie pie indeed.

The Museum had lots of activities for the kids. They played in a pretend ship while they fished from it and slid down the slide that was towards the end of the ship. They had an area for the smaller kids that can't walk yet. They also had little stations where they could pretend. J.R. dressed up like a firefighter and later got to ride a Police motorcycle along with Julian.

We feel blessed to have been a part of the celebration and to live near so many kids from Guatemala.

Lots of Parties in the Air Lately

Well, if it wasn't for the good ole trusty stomach virus life would be great... Mandy came down with it first, then Alexis and I followed along, but luckily it hit us after our birthday party attendance.

We were invited to our friends bday party and then to Guiseppa's one year home celebration. It was a very busy Saturday. We finally got to see Alex and Almari! WELCOME home girls!!!!!

Today was a horrible day for both Alexis and I. We are sick as can be... Pray we recover quickly and that our boys don't get sick.

***Cheri - We live in South Florida where it's about 100 degrees everyday!
