Avery's Boyfriend

Last night we were driving home from dinner at Joe's parents' house and Joe gave me the BEST NEWS EVER!!!! This week is Employee Appreciation Week at work, and today just so happened to be "Bring your kids to work day." When he told me that he was going to take Parker, I had a hard time believing him. How would they get ANYTHING done? After some serious thought, he decided that he probably wouldn't last all day, but would take him for the morning. By the time I got there at noon to pick Parker up, Joe was pretty frazzled. But I had a glorious Parker-free morning! I'm sure the customers were questioning whether they'd entered the right place or not...it was a zoo! We stayed for a while, had some free pizza, Kandis came to rescue Carter, and Avery and her new boyfriend Brooks got a little friendly!

If Qwest had a bring-your-kids-to-work day, I think I'd have a pretty hard time convincing Ryan that it would be a fun idea. I'm impressed that Joe took Parker. Way to go!

Gwenie has a boyfriend, Sawyer, and they just love being together. So cute looks like those too are a match.

I too got that great news that Matt's work is having a take your child to work day next Thursday. I told Zac as soon as I found out so he wouldn't let Matt forget about it...I have it on the calendar and am looking forward to it as much as you were! Not that I don't love having him around...

Ahhh, (sigh) a match made in heaven! Pre-arranged marriages are ok, right?

How is she getting so big, so fast? I can't believe it. So darling!

GrandmaCathy said...

Wow Avery, you're starting young. You make a good pair ! ! !

How cute is that? Avery is such a pretty baby! That is hilarious about Joe, what is it with him and game shows anyway? You will love upgrading to a van, I promise. I thought I would hate driving one, but I love it. SO much more room and the car seats are higher up so there is less stress and strain on my back. It's great!

That little girl just keeps getting cuter and cuter!

Allie said...

OH NO, it is already beginning. She is so cute you are just going to have to lock her up to keep the boys away!

I love baby friends and their associated chubby pictures. It almost makes you want twins.

Kandis Mortensen said...

I just can't tell if he wants to love her or eat her for lunch! (Can't wait to discuss 'Idol' with you--get ready!)

Diane said...

I'm ok with her having a boyfriend now, just now when she's 16. Soooo cute!

I'm still laughing about the work thing. I wonder if he'll do it again next year!

Cute...I love watching babies react to one another! That must have been so nice to have Parker go to work with Joe. How fun! I always tease Mark that he should take Sophie to work with him sometime...that way she could bother everyone and pull at their computer cords to her hearts contents.
