A few more clips

Emma is doing her jumping jacks, Ava too.

Ava loves to read books. We spend most of the day reading books.

Ava's doing good

Ava loves this push around toy. She and Emma fight to play with it all the time. Ava hasn't figured out how to turn around yet so she is always asking for help.

Ava is getting the hang of it

Ava has been working really hard with all her therapists and she is learning to stand and walk. She will occasionally stand by herself but she hasn't taken her first steps yet. She has been practicing with this walker toy. We replaced the batteries and Emma thinks that she needs to push around the walker toy too.

The fourth part 3

Emma and Ava made such messes at our 4th BBQ. We had to bathe them before we could go to the fireworks.

The fourth of July

We had a wonderful 4th of July. We ate breakfast with Rhonda's ward, went swimming, had a BBQ at the park and watched fire works. Pretty much the funnest 4th ever! Probably because my little girls had such a great time. These pictures are sort of in a reverse order.
Adam and the girls. Ava and Emma like to wrestle each other. Mostly they are just fighting for the Binky.

Adam and Jennifer, it's like they have practiced this pose before.

These next few pics are from the BBQ. We met up with BreiAnne's family down at Swallows nest and had a good time. Mostly the girls just made a huge mess. Jeremy and I had to take them home to take a bath before we went to the fireworks.

Ava again

I finally put Emma in the stroller to restrain her. She would walk a mile if I would let her. She was chasing Izzy, walking down by the river, and even helping everyone play some type of game that involves rolling/throwing your ball to get closest to the white ball (I can't remember what it's called). So finally to get her to eat I sat her in the stroller. Little stinker pot.

These next few pictures are from the ward breakfast. I didn't even think to put sunscreen on the girls and their little arms were pink the whole day.
Emma (cheese!) and Jen
Adam- what is he hiding from?

Emma looks like she has a ton of teeth in this picture.
Rhonda and Ava

This is what the girls spends most of their time doing: wiggling! They always want to get down. I am not sure who Jeremy is holding.

Andrew and BreiAnne

This clip was taken just after we got home from swimming. It was raining so hard that the drops were creating a while mist on top of the road. I don't ever remember rain like this in "good ol' Preston!" as Jeremy would say.

Ava is so close to standing by herself.

The other day Grandma Rhonda bought a little purple pool for the girls to play in. She brought it to our house and the girls love it.
