day 232 {sleepover aftermath}

The girls woke up today at 7:30. I couldn't believe they got up so early. Here is the destruction from last night's sleepover:

The good news is they cleaned it up and it's back to normal.

The bad news was Ava ended up getting really crabby in the afternoon and had a few meltdowns. Add in the fact that Ethan has been a real trouble maker lately and they really butted heads this afternoon. We put her in our room for some quiet time to watch some tv and she finally gave in and fell asleep for a little while.

While she was still in a good mood, Shannon and I took the girls for a swim at a family friend's house. Here are Ava and Natalia. Ava's wearing her new Ni Hao Kai-Lan bathing suit. She doesn't ask for much so when she asked for a Kai-Lan bathing suit like one of the girls in her swimming class we went out shopping with my mom and found one.

Thanks for looking!

Jen, great pictures! I can't believe that the room got back to normal! That is awesome that Ava got to have a sleepover with her cousins. She looks fabulous in her new bathing suit! Is that really Natalia? New hair style! Thanks for posting Jen. I really need to see you all in person soon!
