Just after Kevin's birthday Grandpa and Grandma took the whole family to Schlitterbahn. It was Avery and my (Tonya's) first visit. If you notice someone missing in these photos, Claire stayed with the other Grandparents all day, which was fantastic for everyone!

 The first 30 minutes or so were a bit uncertian for Avery. Between the water splashing in her face (which she hates) to the many, many people, and the huge water slides, she was pretty sure this was not the place for her. However, Daddy's presence and the slides below changed her mind completely!

After that initial newness, she could not get enough of the place. She eventually rode these slides by herself over and over and over.

Here we all are enjoying lunch together. Somehow Aunt Amy missed out on the picture taking. Hmmmm.

We also found a kiddie section where Avery really had some fun.

I think this last picture pretty well sums up how Avery felt about Schlitterbahn. She did a great job. We were there from 10:30 -5:30 nonstop and she was the last one out of the water at the end of the day. We all had a great time!

When we got home, Claire was sooooo happy to see all of us, but mostly she was glad to see Avery. She voluntarily hugged her about 5 times. It was extremely sweet.
