Jeff and Vanessa came in last week and we all went swimming at Jake's house. Well, they all went swimming. Amber was hosting a party (which we crashed) and I was taking care of Max. Ava loved the pool...eventually. She slept great that night.

Ava sees a plane. So does everyone else.

What's Going On

We've been busy this summer, going lots of places and seeing lots of people. Here are a few pics from the past few weeks.

Max is doing well sitting in his Bumbo. His legs are starting to get too big to fit in it, though. He may outgrow it before we even start solid foods!

I took a shower the other day and put Max in his crib and left Ava in the living room watching cartoons. When I got out of the shower I heard Ava laughing really loud. I walked into Max's room and this is what I found. She had crawled up into the crib with Max and the two of them were just as happy as they could be!

Working on the computer with daddy

Jeff brought Ava these wooden shoes from a layover in the Netherlands. She wouldn't wear them when he gave them to her, but the next day she thought they were great!

We have dabbled in potty training these past few weeks when we've been at home. This is what happened when I tried to get Ava to wear big girl underwear.

4 Months Old

Max is now 4 months old! Actually, a little over 4 months. He's doing really well. We went in for his 4 month check up and the doctor said he was fantastic. He weighed 17 pounds 9 ounces and was 27 inches long, 90th percentile. He got 3 shots and did NOT like them. He's eating like a pro, but we haven't started solids yet. He can roll over both ways, but most of the time chooses to just hang out on his back. He loves to watch the lights and the fan and laugh when people talk to him. Ava loves to jump over Max and try and pick him up and carry him. He's sleeping better, but not through the night yet. We go to Galveston next week and when we get home I'm planning on doing some serious sleep training...we will see how that goes. All in all he's a pretty good kid!

4th of July

Four generations of Frys
Max, Micah, Michael, Edd

Max is ready for some fun in the sun

Ava would only get in the water if her daddy went with her

Braxton fell off the mule and busted his head. A trip to the hospital and two staples later he was just fine. He's a pretty tough kid!

Ava and Kaden driving the mule. They weren't driving when Braxton fell off...

This year we had a very professional fireworks show, complete with electronic push button control. Whenever we pushed the button, another firework went off. The fireworks were great and I was really impressed that it all worked. Good job, Karl!!

Max is pushing "The Button"

Karl has all the fireworks ready to go

4th of July Parade

Every year we go to the 4th of July parade in Paris. Ava really enjoyed it this year and did a great job picking up all the candy that was thrown our way. Max didn't really care, maybe next year.

Ava, Kaden, Logan, and Rosa enjoying the parade.

New Home/Lamesa/Lubbock Trip

We recently went to the Lubbock area for the Zant Family Reunion. We went a few days early and visited with Micah's cousins and all their kids...5 boys ages 5 and under! Ava had a lot of fun playing with all those boys, but was ready to go home where she could be the center of attention.

After the reunion. Ava and Kaden were tired out.

Playing in the sand with Brazos. There was lots of sand.

Thanks Lyneil and Andy for letting us invade your house and eat all your yummy food!!
