WARNING: Lots of photos

Okay so these pictures loaded up out of order and there are too many to rearrange them. We did a lot of things we did in the month of October to prepare for the Halloween season. We made spider hand prints and ghost foot prints for a playgroup activity. Then Ava and I went to the Boca Park Pumpkin patch and the Centennial one as well. Ava actually got to ride the rides! She had so much fun. We also went to the Haunted Harvest at Springs Preserve with a couple of families in our playgroup. Her friend Olivia was the Bee, and Ava enjoyed going but I didn't as much because I forgot the stroller and there was a lot of walking, which meant I was carrying her a lot. Then Halloween came and we went to a couple of Trunk or Treats, Ava was the cutest Peacock! She keeps looking at my phone which has her picture of her in her costume and saying "Peacock." The day after Halloween we had Ava's birthday party since Nate was in town. It was a lot of funshe had a Backardigans party (she is obsessed with Pablo the penguin), the kids decorated crowns with jewels and glitter glue. Then we had a Pablo pinata and a Pablo cake that yours truly made with a little help from my mother. Ava enjoyed all of the attention and actually opened her gifts by herself. We also took a trip down to see the decorations at the Bellagio. Ava liked the trees at first, but the she kept saying she was "scared." We had a fun weekend with Nate in town ad we really miss him!

She is the cutest peacock. Impressive cake.
