Aviana went away on an adventure. She stayed at Grandma's house for 2 nights all by herself. She hardly missed us, though she did carefully choose a gift for everyone in the family on her trip to the dollar store while she was gone. She's such a thoughtful kid.
Her brother and sister sure missed her. We kept them busy with an outing to a play with dad and a play date with a new friend. But by Saturday morning they were ready for her to come home. They wanted to play in the front yard, where they would know the minute she arrived.
Fortunately, waiting by the road lost its interest quick and pretending they were cowboys took a higher priority.
These two are big fans of having their picture taken. If they don't think you got the perfect shot, they are happy to stand statue still in their pose until you take a satisfactory photo.
We seriously took about 70 pictures.
Aviana arrived safe and sound with her cousins and the rest of the afternoon was spent at the pool down the road. By evening Cole had his new sword (that Aviana brought him) taken away for hitting people with it and Alidia had stopped following Aviana around like a puppy, lest she try to leave her side again.
