It's felt like spring in Southern California since January, but Ava officially celebrated Spring Break this past week.
Her break started by getting out of school early last Friday and taking the (not so) long drive to Long Beach to watch some racing.The Grand Prix festivities include lots of other fun stuff like autographs from the Ganassi team drivers including Ryan Briscoe,
A chance to meet Firehawk, the Firestone mascot,
A convention center filled with cars,
And a chance to experience life in a bubble.
Over the weekend, Ava visited Celebrate UCI, the school's annual open house/festival where she met Peter the Anteater. Zot, zot, zot!The highlight of Ava's break was a trip to Torrance to spend several days with Grammy and Poppy, who took her all over town for fun and sweets such as Handel's Ice Cream,
Torrance's newest park,
Views of the lighthouse and whale watching at Pt. Vicente,
And playing with and feeding Divot, who just woke up from hibernating all winter.
