Avery's Official 1st Birthday Bash!

Jordan my decorating assistant... hes proud of his work.

Well we finally had a chance to have Avery's first birthday. Between moving and family schedules it turned into being over a month late... but she doesn't know the difference! Jordan's Mom had a fitness conference in town so Avery's Grandpa and Nana Heavenor and Uncle Mike were in town from Vanderhoof. We had most of our immediate family and some extended and some close friends. It was a very fun time!

Avery playing with her toys with her cousin Casey (Casey is actual my cousin - My Aunt Kerry's little girl but closer in age with Avery, so seems like a cousin.)

My Nana and Grandpa Pizzey

My great Grandma and Grandma

Me, Jordan and Avery

Lighting the candles, we striped Avery down to her diaper, we really didn't need to cause it wasn't that messy.

Avery wondering what everyone is singing?!?!

Avery's friends Casey and Jonah Chiu helping her blow the candles out. I can't believe I forgot to take a picture of the cake, it wasn't amazing, but it was 2 big balloon on top (orange and purple) of a pink base. Kind of cute and funny with balloon candles.

Enjoying her cake, she wasn't as messy as I'd hoped!

Yum! All done, time for presents!

Opening presents with Casey to help.

Sporting her first gymnastics body suite (present of course from Auntie Taren) and enjoying her chair from Auntie Kamry.

End of Summer fun!

Here are a bunch of things we did to keep busy during this Indian summer we've been having in Edmonton. Our house gets quite hot in the heat (we are seriously considering AC next summer) so me and Avery had lots of play dates in the sun and did some fun things with Daddy on the weekends.

After the splash park, Avery and Dmitri Choy came and played with some toys at our house.

After Avery went to sleep Jordan and I had a nice BBQ on our grill in the back yard, it actually worked really good! Looks like we wont need to buy a BBQ for a while still!

Me & Avery at Miquelon Lake

Jordan and Avery building a sand castle At Miquelon.

Avery's head full of curlers for church - surprisingly didn't pull them out?!

At the leg grounds with Kate and Kara. Kate and Kara are 8 months, they are my sister Kamry's nieces, Amelia's little girls. Very cute!

Playing at Kristen and Casey's house - My cousins, but seem more like Avery's cousins cause of there age, they are so cute with Avery.

Avery doing her silly face in the pool with Casey.

This is just Avery playing at home, I just like it cause she looks so old!

So we have a busy week this week, we are having Avery's bday party this weekend, and Jordan's family is coming for that which is nice. So lots to get ready, should be fun! And its supposed to be nice this week again! So maybe in between we will have some fun outside too.
