Birthday party and the landscaping is finished!

Avery decided to wake up at 6:30am this morning.  That is just way too early for mommy!  We got up, mom made coffee, Avery had her breakfast of yogurt and fruit, then we played before morning nap.  For the first time in who knows how long, Avery actually took a great morning nap today!  She slept for an hour and a half.  Once she got up, we headed over to my friend Erin's house for Connor's 2nd birthday party.  It was nice to see Erin and Mark, and our other friends Carrie and Ryan.  There where TONS of kids running around.  It looked like everyone was having a great time.  Avery was one of the younger kids there, so we stuck to swinging in the swing and having some snacks inside.  She loved swinging outside!  I really wish we had a great tree in our backyard to hang a swing like this.  
 We stayed at the party for about an hour, then decided to leave while Avery was still in a good mood.  We had some other errands to run before heading home for the day.  We stopped at Costoc and grandma Charlene ran in to get some groceries we needed.  Once we got home, Avery was in a great mood playing with her toys.  I love catching her sweet smile on camera!
 Our yard is finally finished!  Lots of hard work in the heat was put in by Eric and grandma Charlene.  It looks great.  Here is the front bed that wraps around to the side of the house.  The flowers look really small but they will get bigger with time.
 Here is one of the tree beds in the front yard.
 Here is the other tree bed in the front yard.
 The front of the house.  I'm so happy this is done before we have visitors on Monday!
 The side of the large front bed.  I love the oleanders we planted.
 The supervisor hard at work in the backyard.
 So pretty!
 Here is the backyard bed that wraps around a small patio.
 The spot on the left that doesn't have any flowers is going to be used for herbs.  We are going to be planting basil, cilantro, rosemary and possibly mint.  I'll love having fresh herbs for cooking!
 Another pretty close up.
Tonight we are having salmon and veggies for dinner.  As soon as we are finished eating, grandma Charlene is taking over with Avery so I can run to Super Target to get groceries.  I might have to pick up something sweet for dessert.  The diet starts next week! :)  Hope everyone has a great Saturday night!
