Birthday Weekend!!

Well Saturday was Hubby's Birthday and we had a great day! That morning my sister Rach and her husband Nick drove over from Tampa. I had breakfast waiting for them and Bryan. I made an Asiago, Mushroom, and Sausage Strata and Cinnamon Rolls. The Strata was pretty scrumptious (Southern Living Recipe). Ava was so shy at first and kept clinging onto my legs but once she warmed up to them she gave them so much love. She was hilarious and in such a playful mood. After coffee we decided to give them a tour of our town. We showed them our beach and took them to see the lighthouse. After the sight-seeing tour, we went to City Place in West Palm Beach for lunch. We had some Panera Bread and Ava dug into some Broccoli Cheddar Soup. Yum Yum. Then we went for ice cream at Sloan's. This place is a kiddie heaven and was awesome. While we ate our ice cream outside, all Ava wanted to do was chase the pigeons around! I showed them where my new hospital is that I'll be working at and then we went home to relax and get ready for dinner. Ava caught a second wind after sleeping in the truck and was running around the house in her diaper. She decided to then take her diaper off and run around naked. We were dying laughing and then all of the sudden Bryan said, "I think she's gonna pee," and at that time she squatted and peed right there. Then the laughter increased and Uncle Nick was almost in tears. She thought she was so funny. I think we are going to get a Potty Chair just to see what she does. I know she is too young to really start potty training but since she has started taking her diaper off and trying to pee for the last week, I figure we'll just see what she thinks about a Potty Chair. Anyway we went to dinner at the coolest place. It was on the inter coastal waterway and people would just dock there boats and come up for dinner. It was the most amazing atmosphere and the food was delicious. We had fried conch fritters, crap dip, and blackened Cobia. Ava had chicken tenders but tried our fish and loved it. I can't tell you how much fun we had and Bryan said he had such a wonderful 27th Birthday! Ava was pooped at the end of the day and actually slept in her crib all night long. Best birthday present ever and she slept in...BONUS!! As promised her are the pictures......
