Big fun in Fort Worth

Ava and I just got back from a six day trip to Fort Worth where we visited family and friends and attended Summer Spectacular. I can't believe it has already been six months since we moved. It was so good to reconnect with everyone. In our short stay we managed to squeeze in dinner with the Micks, Quanzes, and Walters, a birthday lunch with Aunt Teressa, a baby shower for Amy Carder, helping decorate for Summer Spectacular, a two night trip to Decatur for Ava, a play date with several friends at the Critz's house, a trip to the Roanoake pool with Emma and Julia, and Summer Spectacular! We had a great time. Here are a few pictures from the trip:

Emma was so sweet to Ava all week, and Ava loved playing with a big girl! In this picture, Emma catches some air!

The girls had fun at the pool! Ava finally got brave enough to ride the slide!

Play date: Jack Pinson, John Critz, Abby Railsback, Jack & Hayley Willbanks, Emma Russell, Garrett Walton & Ava.

Ava and Hayley love each other! I told Ava to give Hayley a hug and they held this pose for about a minute. It was so cute!

I love the pictures of your trip! Sounds like you had a full and fun trip! The last picture looks like one they would put on their dorm room door with a picture next to it of them in the same pose 17 years later!

Summer it was really good to see you. After you left I thought of several things that I had meant to ask you and got distracted from doing. You had a busy trip here! I look forward to seeing you soon and I love the pictures. I can't wait to see mine from the play day we had.

It was so fun to have a little time to catch up between toddler interruptions! So glad you came to visit!

There isn't much sweeter than that last picture with our little ones. I love those girls! I miss you! I miss our random get togethers with our girls and long talks about stuff that matters. You're one in a million and I thank our God for the gift of YOU! It was so great to see you. We'll visit soon. Big hugs--Shelma

Summer - Thanks so much for all the help! It was so great to get to spend time with you and watch you add your special touch to a wonderful event! Ava is so precious and is growing so fast! Thanks again for blessing all of us with a little Summer-time!
Hugs - Mindy

Ava's SO big and cute! I can't wait to spend more time with ya'll in Brownwood!

Sorry we missed you on Monday. Chris actually got a hold of your mom and she gave us Kate's number. We wanted to talk to her about our move to Houston since her close friends live there.

See you soon!!
