Ava Turns 2!

Ava held her second birthday party at the Kohl Children’s Museum in Glenview. Family and friends joined in wishing this loving, sweet angel a happy birthday.

We enjoyed pizza, salad, Mac and Cheese from Fatso’s and an Elmo cake from Lutz Bakery.

Elmo even stopped by to say hello!

On Ava’s actual birthday, we celebrated with a cupcake from Sweet Mandy B’s.

Blueberry Picking in Michigan City, IN

We kept the Jacobs’ tradition going with this last outing. We went to Billy Boy’s Blueberry Farm and picked blueberries. Dave’s grandparents took him here as a kid and now Ava’s parents and grandma took her.
I have a new appreciation for blueberries! It’s a lot of work filling a bucket full with the little berries!

We continued a trip down memory lane with Dave by having lunch at the Tree House.

Pony Ride

Ava rode her first pony this weekend. Dave and I took her to West Fest and she was thrilled to get on the pony. I know this is not the last time she will be riding!

Great America

Dave and I wanted the end the holiday weekend on the up swing, so we headed to Great America! Wow , did Ava love all of the rides! She laughed and smiled the entire time. We wanted to introduce roller coasters to her at an early age. She rode alone and with Dave like the best of them!

Ava went to her first soccer class today. She kicked a goal and ran around with the other toddlers. Grandpa Brant would be so proud!
