Today is our day without Ava. We were very lazy today, just read, slept, ate and watched TV until it was time to go to the circus at 3:30. The circus had acrobats, trapeze artists, animal shows and a clown. It was a lot of fun! It was nice to have something fun to do instead of sitting around the house. We went to dinner at a Turkish restaurant after and Jason got what he thought was beef but it was lamb and it was the worst lamb we’ve ever tried. He couldn’t eat it and he can eat just about anything! While I’m on the subject of food, we found mini pizzas at the store yesterday and they were really good. Also, the store has Lays potato chips, Coke, Pepsi, Sprite and Cadburys Chocolate. No ice cream at the store but they have street venders that sell Good-Humor type bars. Jason has had a few of the local beers and he thought they were pretty good.
Yesterday our visit with Ava went good but it was way to short as usual. She really is not smiley all the time; we just like to post those pictures because they are our favorites. She makes us work hard to get those laughs and smiles. Most of the time she wants to crawl, especially since she is good at it now. Also, she wants to play with the toys we bring and find things to pull herself up on. She does like us to walk around holding her too, which we love, of course.
We also wanted to thank everyone for the wonderful comments, we love to check the blog to see if we’ve gotten more! It makes us happy to know that people are following along in this adventure with us! Here are a few pictures from yesterdays visit.
