Ava LOVES roses - flowers of any kind really but especially roses. She'll remind Ryan periodically if he hasn't brought her home one recently and of times he has given them to her in the past. . .and then in case he forgot, she'll remind him how much she loves them (we'll have to cue her husband in someday : ) ). Every time we're at the store she asks if she can get flowers and if I respond "no," she'll quickly try her next favorite thing: to give someone else flowers.
One afternoon after church I ran into Aldi's with the twins to grab a couple groceries. They saw the flowers and wanted to bring them home to Ava and that day I let them. She was SO thrilled, it was pretty cute. She kept crouching down to them and very sweetly thanking them for bringing her flowers.
We had to take a picture of just her roses too.
Love moments like this!
