Locking Her Up, and Throwing Away the Key...

A boy kissed Ellie at a party tonight...on the lips!! I didn't know that spin the bottle was an acceptable activity when being watched by Grandma and Grandpa. I asked my dad what she did after the little boy planted one on her, and apparently she giggled.

When I asked her about it later, she said that he was her boyfriend, it wasn't gross, and she would do it again.

So, I figure I should write down the next story in this post to embarrass her in front of her potential suitors (don't want to forget it)...

I like my baths. Nice, hot baths. Usually I'll plop Ellie in front of the TV so I can have some quiet time to myself. One day as I was relaxing in the tub. The door burst open, and there was Ellie in the buff, wearing goggles. Swimming lessons have been the end of my hot, relaxing baths.

Bridal Veil Falls

I tell you what, you really don't appreciate three-day weekends until you are was fabulous.

So, apparently Dan has always wanted to take "his girls" to Bridal Veil Falls, but only ever told us today, so off we went. We played it like usual and picked the path less traveled, and by less traveled I mean, are we lost? After much hiking, and listening to Ellie who hiked with no help repeat, "I can do it!!" (think Little Engine that Could), we made it to the falls.

See what I mean about path less traveled...check out Ellie. She was a powerhouse!!

After the falls, we went to Grandma and Granpa's for dinner that was topped off with Peach Cobbler (per my request). We were able to visit with Aaron, Leticia, Lucy, Lily, Grandma and Granpa Jessen, and Grandma GiGi.
Work tomorrow...grumble, grumble. :P

First Day of School

I mean, "pre-school". Ellie is so adamant that I say pre-school and not school. She looks funny without a backpack, but her teacher said she didn't need one. Not to worry, she took one the next day, because all the other kids did. :)

So far Ellie hasn't had the chance to make friends. She says she has been too busy. :)
