Three birthdays in one day!

Aprils are busy for birthdays. Me and a lot of my friends were born in April, so we have lots of parties. The first party below is my birthday party....followed by a sample of all the others!

Me and Audrey!

My birthday present from Mommy and Daddy!

With Mommy and Grammy on my actual birthday - dinner at Nopalito and a popsicle for dessert!

Party with the neighborhood kids in Alamo Square - I love blowing dead dandelions!

We had an Easter egg hunt at the neighborhood party - I collected SO many eggs. I think egg hunting is my calling. I was helping the other kids too.

A pretty nice park for a party - I am lucky!

Enjoying the sun: Gerringong, Australia

We spent the majority of our trip to Australia in my favorite place in the world, Gerringong.

Ava enjoying the best beach in the world, Werri Beach, with the best dog in the world, Taz! Ava loved Taz, but Taz is getting old and had to take breaks from Ava. She loved Ava as well, but would hide out in the bedrooms when she wanted to sleep peacefully.

Ava loved taking Tazzy for walks
Friends in Gerringong enjoying a BBQ:

Lois and Foot
Karen and John

Ava's first ice cream cone of her own, with the best ice cream in the world!

At the Illawarra Fly - suspension bridges high above the trees

Ava giving Eddie a bath - they had many bathes together
Eddie with Grandma Lorraine
Eating breakfast on the veranda - an everyday occurrence
Enjoying Seven mile beach in Gerroa

Walking Tazzy again
Relaxing in a town off the Shoalhaven River (we took the Peades boat for a ride) - ate fresh fish n chips!

Back in the river at Gerroa

At the Minnamurra River - kayaking was great and the water was perfect for a long swim!

And finally, the gracious hosts! As always, we had a fantastic time at 9 Armstrong Ave. We love your lifestyle and love you guys! We look forward to the next trip (trip # 7, #4 and #3 for me, Dave and Ava respectively)
