Last month we went to Bear Lake for the annual Call Family Reunion. It was a lot of fun this year because Avery was old enough to go and play with Skyler’s girl cousins.
One of the days we were there we went to the beach and played. Avery love playing with Brooke.
Here are some fun pictures of Avery playing in the sand at the beach.
Avery and daddy walking in the water.
Daddy and Kaden enjoying the sun.
Skyler’s grandpa brought his 4-wheelers for people to ride on. Avery really wanted Skyler to take her for a ride.
She was afraid that they were going to fall in the lake, even though they were no where near the lake, so Skyler stopped and turned her around so that she could hold on to him.
By the time they got done Avery was smiling and had a good time. She told me that she kept saying, “ahhh!”
More cute pictures of Avery playing in the sand.
My beautiful little girl.
Me and Kaden relaxing in the sun.
We had a great time at Bear Lake and look forward to the reunion next year!

On July 10th we went to the American Fork Steel Days parade and carnival. (I am way behind on my posts).
This is all of us waiting for the parade to start. The parade was really long. Skyler and Kaden got really hot so about half way through they went to the car to cool off. Avery had a blast running out into the road with Nicole to get the candy that was thrown.
Later that day Skyler and I took Avery to the carnival; Kaden stayed with Grandma Call. We purchased 10 tickets for Avery and then were given about 10 more from other people there who were leaving and had a couple extras. The first ride that Avery went on was the “green roller coaster”. I got her strapped in and told her to hold onto the bar in front of her. The ride started and she got really scared. Every time she came around she would look at me and say, “Mom I want to get off”. I felt so bad because there was nothing I could do to help her.
The next ride that Avery went on was the cars. She really like this one. She sat next to this cute little boy who talked to her and made sure that she was okay.
She loved this one. I think she really enjoyed being able to hold the steering wheel and pretend she was actually driving the car.
Uncle Blaze was at the carnival. He had purchased an all day pass so he could go on as many rides as he wanted. This worked out really well for us because he could go on the bigger rides with Avery so we didn’t have to purchase more tickets for Skyler and I to go with her.
The train was another one of Avery’s favorite rides. Blaze looks like he is having so much fun!
This ride was a fun one. I remember this ride being there when I was a kid. Avery really enjoyed this one, she was the only child on the ride.
This one was fun for Avery because she got to control whether she was up in the air or down by the ground.
Avery enjoyed the yellow slide so much that she wanted to go on it a second time. This time she wanted me to go with her. It was fun!
Look how happy she is!
For the last ride of the day she chose to ride on the cars again.
We had a great time at the carnival!

I just found this post and realized that I forgot to finish it. On our way home from Homestead we stopped in Park City at The Alpine Slide. Skyler had been talking with Avery about it a few weeks earlier and she decided that she wanted to earn a ride on it for going potty. She filled up 2 sticker charts and was able to earn it. Here she is standing with her daddy in line for the slide.
I stayed at the bottom with Kaden while Skyler too Avery on the slide.
When they got up to the top Skyler called me to let me know that they would be coming down soon.
When they got done I asked Avery how it was and she said that daddy went too fast. She said that she kept telling him to slow down and that she wanted her mommy!
She had a good time with her daddy and she keeps telling me that when Kaden gets older that he will go on it with dad and she will go with me. She is so cute!

Several months ago Grandma Call made a deal with Avery that if she would go potty for 20 days (not consecutive) with no accidents she would take her to Build-A-Bear. Aunt Lacey took Avery to the computer and let her look at all of the bears on their website and pick her very favorite one. Lacey used a picture of the bear and made Avery a chart to mark her progress on. Well a few weeks ago Avery finally met that goal. We are so proud of her!
Grandma Call loaded Avery in the car and took her to the mall. I met them there so I could be a part of the fun too.
Avery already knew which bear she wanted so that part was really easy. She pulled the bear out of the bin and hugged it so tight.
She took it over to one of the employees to stuff it. She pushed the black peddle with her foot to start the machine.
The employee handed Avery a small red heart so that she could give it her love before putting it inside the bear. She rubbed it between her hands and blew on it to make it warm and then gave it a kiss.
She put the heart into the bear.
When the bear was all stuffed she took it over to give it a shower (an air shower).
Aunt Lacey put some of the sunglasses made for the bears on Kaden. Doesn’t he look cute?!?
Choosing which bear she wanted was easy. Choosing the outfit for the bear, however, was a lot more difficult. Avery had tried several outfits on the bear before finally choosing the one she wanted. When the bear was all dressed it was time to pick some accessories for it. Avery chose a blow dryer (it really works), a brush, and a mirror.
When her bear was all dressed and accessorized we went over to the computers and put in her bears information and made it a birth certificate. We then went to the counter to pay for the bear. The employee at the counter gave Avery two purple bows for her new bear’s ears. Avery had a great time. Thanks Grandma Call for taking Avery to build her bear. She loves it so much and takes it everywhere with us!
