Avery said her first sentence...sort of. We took her to the Auburn water park on Saturday. She splashed and played, and we left after about an hour due to nap time! This is not the classiest place on the block, but it is exceptionally toddler friendly. Splash town has a foot of water with toddler water sports like a see saw that splashes each child back and forth, a mushroom with cascading water fall, and a slide that kids can ride with their parents. Then we checked out the wave pool, and finally the lazy river. Aves had a blast. We put her shoes back on as we were leaving, and as soon as we got in the car, she was trying to undo the velcro. About five minutes later, I look back at her, and she looks at me with very sincere eyes and says "shoes off." She repeats it about one hundred times until I finally get what she is saying and help her pull her shoes off. She was so proud that she said it and that I got it, and the shoes came off! We were both pretty pumped. Here she is with her shoes AND shirt off.Uncle Floyd ordered Avery seconds of red Jello at Geno's at the beach. Thanks Floydo.
I do want to mention how good Geno's is, and if anyone is supporting the gulf coast this week and winds up in Orange Beach, go check it out! They have great sushi, seafood, and salads. Happy Independence Day!
