I also love that you just need to add 1 cup of milk and then blend it in the blender. This is great especially for cold season. Which right now Ellie has a cold, so this is perfect. The kids really thought it was ice cream. I put sprinkles on it and they kept on asking for more. Though they really were just eating fruit.
One last thing, my kids love yogurt, but it is really expensive and we go through it in two days. I have three kids and the packages of yogurt come in six, so we run out of yogurt quickly. This is a great alternative to yogurt. It makes a lot with one package. You can find this great find at Cosco!

The below picture is of her putting her baby in the booster seat. She absolutely loves babies and loves taking care of them. In the mornings I find Avi and Anderson playing with their babies. Yes, Anderson does have a baby and it is blue. He always pretends he is the father and she is the mother.
Also in the mornings Avi is so helpful to me. When I am taking a shower she will say to Ellie, "Come play with me Ellie." She is really helpful to me and her sister Ellie. Though I must say Ellie is very strong willed and isn't so nice to Avi. Avi just persists and asks her if she would like to do something else.
Below is Avi helping out with the babies, Brynn and Ellie. Well, there not really babies, but toddlers.
When Ellie sees someone on the floor she loves to roll on them. I know it is quite strange! Avi is such a trooper and she will get on the ground and have her sister roll on her, as you see in the picture below. They just giggle together!

Now in exhibit B, you will see a much different haircut. I believe Ryan asked the woman to leave the top long and the sides shorter. Well, I don't think she heard his request and shaved the whole head the same length. So I'm very disappointed with his new look. I think his hairstyle looks like Jim Carry in Dumb and Dumber!
Thank goodness hair grows and we can start over!

Her Aunite Renee was in town last week and I remember talking to Renee about her experience in gymnastics and it must have come up that she also did soccer. Auntie Renee already has their lives planned out with the sports that they are going to play. Auntie Renee is a high achiever so I hope they will be as dedicated as an athlete as she is.
I feel sorry for Anderson, because every time Avi goes to gymnastics he asks when will he be able to go to soccer. He even asked Avi if he could take her gymnastics lesson, which he did once while Avi was in Michigan visiting her Nana! He really was a good listener in the class and did really well. It just breaks my heart to have to disappoint him and make him wait each week. I tried to get him into soccer for September, but they wouldn't let me, because he wasn't 3 at the start of the class. Though he was going to be 3 by the end of the session. I think that was unfair, that is a mom talking! My mom even offered to pay for Anderson to take gymnastics. Both Ryan and I feel that we want them to be in individual things, so there won't be competition. I keep telling him that he will get to do soccer after Halloween, when he is 3! So poor Anderson I hate breaking your heart each week. I love you!

So it is nap time and we decide to put the kids down in the room. Needless to say putting three kids down for a nap in one room is absolutely impossible! So we decided to hit the water park and the kids had a lot of fun. I must say the water park was nice, but much smaller than Keylime Cove, which is perfect for a 2 year old. That night the kids went down well in their bunk beds. They were so excited to sleep in them. Avielle slept on top and Anderson on the bottom. Ellie slept in a pack-in-play near our king bed. We kept finding Anderson on Avi's bunk and we would ask him what he was doing and he would say, "I'm trying to see if Avi's eyes are closed!" We couldn't punish him for that it was just too cute!
