Ava and I took a trip to Aunt Fati’s house today! She had recently had back surgery and wasn’t feeling well.Initially Ava was very shy towards Aunt Fati. She stayed close and oddly wasn’t getting into anything that wasn’t nailed down. I took her outside as the day was very nice, sunny and mid 50’s. Aunt Fati’s house is on the side of a small mountain so Ava had a lot of fun running down the front yard. Aunt Fati’s dog showed a lot of interest in Ava too, they played together well. After an hour or so Ava warmed up to Aunt Fati and she was all smiles and running through her house just like she does at ours. There were quite a few nick nacks and small decorations at Aunt Fati’s house which gave Ava many options to grab and touch. We stayed for about 3 hours which was good timing because Ava was fairly tired when we left. She slept all the way home, wish I could have done the same!
It was a nice Saturday afternoon so we decided to take Ava to the McConnell’s Trace Trail that was close by on Old Frankfort Pike. We started off in the stroller but decided that Ava could handle walking the trail just fine so we let her loose. (sort of) She really had a great time and walked most of the entire 1 mile loop herself! She was a bit cranky towards the end and did not want to go back in her stroller. She is little miss independent for sure.
