Austin Reptile Show Comes to the Pflugerville Public Library.

We've recently discovered the Pflugerville Public Library, which is funny, since I've lived less than fifteen minutes from it for the better part of a decade. Anyhow, I had heard that it had been redone, and recently read about a great baby story time there on Monday mornings, and went to check it out for myself.

Not only did both the library and the story time exceed my expectations, but I happened to pick up a brochure of both adult and children's upcoming events, and it just so happened that the reptile show was coming the following week and wristbands were available the following day! We returned the next day, picked up our wristbands, and eagerly awaited the event!

First, let me say how awesome the wristband system is! When we got there, we didn't have to worry about there being enough room, or having it be wall-to-wall packed to where we couldn't see or enjoy it. We just got in line with our wrist-banded selves, and waited for the show to begin!

Jack, known to be a skeptical baby, wasn't so sure at first:

...but being true to his boy-ness, he quickly decided he likes reptiles :)

We will definitely be utilizing all that the Pflugerville Public Library has to offer in the future!

Jack's a Happy Little Bug!

Not only does Jack love gymnastics at The Little Gym, he's really started to show off some new skills  during class time. At different parts of the class we are given the opportunity to do some free exploring of the gym, and Jack has started to do a great job in pulling himself up and standing with support! So proud of my baby bug!

Bubbles! Definitely one of his favorite parts!

Interested in having your own baby bug take classes at The Little Gym of Round Rock or Lakeline? View the schedule online and call to schedule your free trial class today, and let them know I sent you over :)!

Things to Do in Round Rock: Rockin' River Family Aquatic Center!

We love Rockin' River, though it was certainly a bit more stressful with a baby in tow this year than with several older girls. I think our next trip back will be on a day when daddy can join, too!

Here's my little bathing beauty!

Happy 4th of July!

Each year, we head to Wells Branch's FourthFest for the Fourth of July celebration there, and this year was no exception! Though Jack attended last year in my belly, this year he enjoyed it much more, being on the outside and all. This is always one of the highlights of our summer! 

Check us out:

Happy Independence Day!

Rainbow Dash: The Party Theme of the Summer, Apparently.

I'm not sure when or why My Little Pony started blowing up and becoming this big thing, but I know that a massive part of it has to do with Rainbow Dash. Aside from knowing this from my constant exposure to little girls, it seems that every. last. birthday party we're going to these days has the same theme: Rainbow Dash. 

As someone who has thrown a rainbow party myself, I see the appeal. You can really run with "rainbows". Add in the "dash", and it seems like the bar for birthday parties is pretty stinkin' high these days, with a pony appearance as commonplace as the cake. Looks like Ava is going to have one disappointing fifth birthday when a pony is noticeably absent...

Things to Do in Round Rock: Round Rock Art Academy Camp.

Ava has had a blast this summer so far, between being home and playdates and camps. One of the camps that we've done for a couple weeks is a two day a week art camp at the Round Rock Art Academy. While I have my share of strengths, the creative arts - particularly drawing, painting, etc - are not amongst them. I'm lucky to ink out a decent stick figure. Thankfully, with the help of the Art Garden camp, I was wise enough to delegate Ava's art education to the pros, and I'm so glad I did. On just the first day, she painted this picture of me, and I love it. In fact, it's on my nightstand, where it will likely stay...forever. LOVE <3 p="">
