This weekend brought with it a visitor:

My brother and Ava’s Godfather, Steven.












Steven came to get off campus (he attends the University of Nebraska-Lincoln – go ‘skers!) and, of course, to visit his favorite sister.

We enjoyed our time with him. He studied for a test and watched Ava for us while we painted the nursery. And after we had finished our task we went on a mini-road trip to find a pumpkin patch. Unfortunately they were all closed by the time we got on the road. But we did stop at an apple orchard across the highway from one of the patches; we bought some cider and took a few pictures.

Our cute little family.

Ava happy to be hanging out with her Godfather.

Siblings plus Ava.


It was sooo good to see you, Steven!! We can’t wait until you can be our visitor again.
