the PARK

i love summer for so many reasons but right now i am loving the nice weather because it means taking avenue outside everyday. he could spend all day at the park. since im pregnant tho i can usually only last so long without having to go to the bathroom haha. we love the pool too. avenue does it in sessions, he gets in then wants his towel and lays out with me and eats a snack. then he goes back in the water and does it all over again.

the fastest and BEST two years of my life:) cant believe how fast the time goes when your enjoying every minute of watching your baby grow up. i loved the baby phase but avenue is so fun right now, and i feel like aaron is able to enjoy him a lot more too. very blessed to have such a sweet and energetic spirit in our lives. we LOVE this little boy!
avenue has been playing with trains for a while and liked them a lot so we got him the biggest best train table for his birthday (well grandma did!) he still loves it today. when we spend time away from home and then we come back and avenue plays with it like there is no tomorrow. hours on end. best gift for him!

For avenues birthday we also got him a t-shirt that said "this little monkey is going to be a BIG brother!" he wasnt interested in his gifts so gramma jojo opened it and thats how we told family about the new baby on the way!

aarons coaching season

aaron got the opportunity to coach his younger brothers in hockey these last few seasons and he loved every minute of it. they practiced about 3 times a week and went on trips about once a month. he got really good reviews from the parents but i think the boys loved him more.
these are some action shots of avenue at the games. avenue LOVES the hockey rink, he brings his stuff and plays so hard. he runs crazy the whole time then sometimes cries when its time to leave. i love when he goes to the rink too because that means he sleeps well!

a new baby!!

on a sunday in march my sister kara sent me a text of a picture with a positive pregnancy test! i was so excited for her but a little disappointed because we had been trying as well for what felt like forever. i told aaron to go buy me a test because i knew i was pregnant to and had to know if we were gonna be pregnant at the same time. i took one of the tests and it was sooo light but i knew it meant i was preg. so i took one every few days that week until it showed up darker!

thats right we are having another baby. we couldnt be more excited to have another baby and for avenue to have someone to play with. we found out its gonna be a BOY! no name ideas yet but its gonna tough to beat avenue....

cHrIsTmAs 2010

this is avenue with his own christmas tree at the Dommer's. they decorated it with toy story stuff and he loved it.

avenue played in the wrapping paper that was covering the floor! he played in it for a while and he LOVED it. took it seriously but had fun!

when we were in new hampshire a friend of karas had a party and santa came. avenue didnt really know what to think but kara's boys were out of their minds excited! they loved it because he had a special toy for each of them.

when we were opening presents at our house avenue had a weak moment (it was probably really early) and aaron captured it.

New York!

my older sister kara and i have always wanted to go to new york and see the rockefellar tree at christmas time. maybe since we saw home alone movies when we were little. this fall we got tickets and planned at road trip! she is living in concord new hampshire right now so it was about a 5 hour drive. it was beautiful, we drove through Massachusetts, and then Connecticut, and then we stopped by new jersey on the way home. i loved it and was so happy we went and got to see new things. new york has always been at the top of my wish list of places to go. it was very cold and we rushed from place to place, but it was all worth it. we saw dylans candy bar, f.a.o. schwartz and lots of other things.
