"Is this real life???"

Yesterday I played chauffer for a grrrreat girl!  Aves, Cam & I drove her to the doc and then drove her home later because she had to be put under for a quick little operation!  I was SO looking forward to driving a delirious, loopy post-anesthesia patient home...but was totally disappointed to find that she was 100% with it!  Ha.  Better for her I guess.  Bummer for me :) Love you SNL, but I was hoping for an experience more like this one...

Cam, Aves, & I stopped for a super quick lunch before MY doc apmt and as usual, Avery was making friends with everyone in the joint.  Yelling hi and byebye everytime someone came within 20 yards of her.  

B met me at the doc to take the girls home to nap so that I could take my SNL back home.  Avery was soooooo tired!!  She held on pretty well, we only had a few melt-down moments at the doc.  Even when she is mid-tantrum or in tears she still manages to wave hello, say byebye and blow kisses to all of her spectators.  It's kind of hilarious.

What should have a been a 45-50 minute trek taking the SNL home turned into a 3+ HOUR VOYAGE across Dallas, back, and then back, and then back again.  A set of forgotten keys kinda played into that.  Oops.  Oh well.  We got to chat.  ALOT.  And then I was able to make a quick (not really quick at all) stop into Sprinkles so that B could finally judge for himself the deliciousness that is Sprinkles Cupcakes.

Those cupcakes, along with a bottle of sugary goodness (Big Red), kept B & I company last night as we packed our lives away.  We've still got work to do, but hey- we're gettin there!

Here are some pics from earlier in our week:

apples (or- "appees") are aves' new fav food.  she ovciously couldnt WAIT to get them in her belly :)

pics before naptime are never a good idea...
