I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day! Hubby and I both had to work boo :(. Just saw each other long enough to hand over Ava. Which, I'm not going to lie, being pampered all day would have been lovely but it just wasn't in the cards this year. Thank-You Ava for giving me YOU as my gift. I never could have dreamed that being a Mommy would be this fulfilling. I went to work and knew how excited all the mommies were to be a new mom on this day! Sometimes my job can be very rewarding.
We did have some days off together this past week and we went back to Tampa for my sister-in-laws Graduation from Dental Hygiene school. I am so proud of her and can't believe she was able to accomplish this while she is raising 2 kids! Now we have two hygienist in the family because my sister is also one. We had a great time....

Went to my nephew's baseball game, he is the pitcher and they won the first game of their tournament!!

In other news, we leave tomorrow morning for Atlanta! I'm in the process of packing and getting things organized. This was kind of a last minute decision that Ava and I come because hubby has Chiropractic stuff going on, but he wanted us to be with him :) I know I sound like a nerd but I'm planning on doing the Gone With the Wind tour and seeing Marget Mitchell's home because I am a GWTW freak. Also we are going to the GA aquarium on Sunday because hubby will have time to spend with us. I'm excited, this will be our first mini vacation (Kinda vacation) with Ava.
