Ha-ha Mimi, your stories always remind me of funny memories that I laugh out loud over. This one reminded me of the plane ride home when Ellie ate a whole container of cheese puffs and we let her so to keep her happy. But now I got too far, let’s talk about the Green trip itself.
and took her to the Farmers’ Market for a relaxing afternoon… perfect for a baby who loves to be on the go. And my brother, Steve, got out the Tonka trucks and he and Ellie had a blast filling them with balls all the while she was saying, “Vroom Vroom.”
And waving in the distance (when there wasn’t a blessed “soul” there, so to speak) gave me goose bumps in a comforting way.
Your friend Julie has the nicest kids and grandchildren. And it was so nice too Mom that we got to meet Marianne and Kathy (and Kathy’s daughter), your dear friends from when you were younger. I think you are teaching Ellie what relationships, especially friendships mean.
Ellie, don’t you worry… as soon as you are old enough, you will be on these adventures with us before you know it!
Oh, and I almost forgot to tell you that you looked very “J Crew Cowgirl” in your blue and white checkered shirt along with your cool and very with-it cowgirl hat! I know, I know…. our sneakers gave us away on being the “not so in-the-know” horseback riders. I guess we will have to splurge on cowgirl boots next! (Let’s make sure they have some hot new color to them!) And I love that we are able to sandwich shopping and pedicures in between our crazy ideas is the best too! You know I love that red you chose for your toes this time! When do you think we can paint Ellie’s nails? She sure is a diva! How about her shopping for Aunt Sammy’s shower and finding that blue boa (and knowing how to wear it)?! I’ve been calling her Zsa Zsa ever since!
Whatever do you think that means?
I can’t tell you how much it melts me heart that she loves you so much. I think you are kindred spirits. Ellie really is connected to your hip and she will be in withdrawal when you leave.
