Ava turned 7 just a few weeks ago and celebrated with presents and dinner at Lazy Dog Cafe.
The celebrations continued that weekend with Ava's grandparents and friends for a pool party at the Woollett Aquatic Center. The kids enjoyed going down the water slide and "Frozen" themed treats.Heading to Simi Valley, Ava got a taste of history at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. Not only did she "learn" about things that were way over her head, but she got to step aboard Air Force One and Marine One.
Outside the museum we got to see a piece of the Berlin Wall.The library was also hosting a special baseball exhibition featuring uniforms, bats, and memorabilia from legends such as Honus Wagner, Babe Ruth, and Jackie Robinson.
Of course plenty of live baseball was on tap this summer including inviting a friend to Angel Stadium cheer on Mike Trout,
A chance to cheer on Abby's hometown Oakland A's when they came to town,And a trip to Lancaster to see the single-A Lancaster Jethawks.
Prior to the game, Ava and Chris played catch on the field,And Ava got autographs from some of the Jethawks players as well as their mascot Kaboom!
Grammy, Poppy, Chris, and Ava enjoyed great seats and foodAnd Ava even got to run through the outfield during the game and around the bases after the game. (Don't worry. Ava's not slow. The kid in orange had a 90 foot head start.)
