I did the crown first, and then Avery got the idea and started making hats for himself (the first one is bunny ears he made), and then he made some for me…
I don’t let Avery play with my phone very often, but he quickly figured out how to use the camera. Fun times! After a few days of this, the garage is now a giant mural of drawings. I’m really amazed at how Avery’s ‘artwork’ is actually more than just scribbles now. He made a fish, a spaceship, and a cloud recently at school for me, and they actually almost resemble something 🙂
When it is sunny, we take advantage and bring the fun outside! Mimi was painting the front doors on the house, and Avery wanted to join in and paint too, so I had him paint something not attached to the house…
My parents gave me a canvas and artwork box full of paints, and I haven’t used it yet – I was so happy to have Avery break it in.
He concentrated so hard, and wanted to try every color in the box.
Towards the end of painting, he started mixing colors.
And he was so proud when he was done.
I hung it up with my artwork in our room.
And thankfully, Grampy took Avery and I fishing last Friday down at the falls before all this rain hit.
It was nice and sunny, and Avery worked on casting and slowly reeling in his line.
Avery loved picking out his worm and washing it off to see it.
Avery pulled in his line and we didn’t realize it had a fish on it! He caught the only one that day.
Grampy got the hook out because the fish swallowed it, but once it was out, Avery held the fish and let it go back in the river.
After he caught his fish, he was over fishing – his short attention span is understandable for a three year old. He did some ‘rock climbing’ as he called it and threw some rocks and sticks in the water.
Grampy kept fishing….
And when the container for the worms fell in the water, I tried to snag it with my fishing pole, but slipped in…
I did save it though! Grampy got a kick out of it and we called it a night. Avery wanted to go check out the falls, so we did some more ‘rock climbing’ and my soggy camera snagged some photos.
We had fun climbing the rocks and seeing the rushing waters.
The past couple days, this area they are standing on has been under water because of all the rain.
Oh and we can’t forget the play date we had with Avery’s (second) cousins. We tagged along with Grampy to my cousins house for a couple hours on Sunday. Grampy was helping them finish the basement. Avery and his cousins went to the park, shared some snacks, and played toys inside. So nice being close to family we can have play dates with!
We had a busy week…we also went to a baby shower (congrats Jenn and Michael – my cousins – They are having a little girl). Mimi and I had fun shopping for a gift for them – it was practical tho! Avery played with his cousins and I got to chat with ladies on that side of the family. We also went to a graduation on Thursday night for Joseph, another cousin (I have so many cousins, lol – gotta love having a big family!) so proud of him and happy to celebrate with him.
Let’s hope some nice weather is ahead for the weekend. We have have pizza and a movie tonight, grocery shopping and a birthday party tomorrow, and who knows what else!?
