first full day with grandpa, grandma, and Emily

We spent our first full day with grandpa Rick, grandma Liz, and Emily.  We all had a light breakfast and some coffee, then Avery got to open her birthday presents from the g-units.  She got a bunch of really cute clothes from Gymboree, a pink butterfly hooded bath towel, and a Little Tikes shopping cart. 
After all of the excitement of opening gifts, we all got dressed and headed out for a walk around the neighborhood.  At the end of our walk, we stopped at the park so Avery could get on the swings for a little while.  She was ready for her morning nap once we got back to the house. 

We went out for lunch to Galaxy Cafe.  Everyone enjoyed a light lunch.  After lunch, the guys stayed home with Avery while the girls went out to a few stores. We went to Charming Charlie's (they don't have that store in CO) so Emily could get a few things, Platos Closet, and Target. 

Emily and Avery after Avery woke up from her afternoon nap.  Avery likes having Emily around to play with. 
Avery just loves her new shopping cart.  She has her babies in it and is slowly learning to stand up and reach the handles.  I know she will love playing with it once she is walking. 
Grandma Liz is helping her walk around and push the shopping cart. 
While we all hung out and played in the living room, grandpa Rick was hard at work in the kitchen.  He was preparing chicken marsala, mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli, and chocolate sheet cake.  Today is grandma Liz's birthday and that was her special birthday dinner request. 
Here is our wonderful dinner.  It was so good.  We all got hungry waiting around for dinner this afternoon, but it was well worth the wait! 
The huge chocolate sheet cake that we got to stare at all afternoon and not touch!  Even though we were all full from dinner, we inhaled a large piece of cake with mint chocolate chip ice cream afterwards. 
We are all relaxing this evening and watching a movie.  Hope you have a great night!
