Inspite of all the hours we’ve spent in the car the past two weeks, Ellie has much prefered to be held when we’ve been exploring at the national parks. Zak has carried her on his shoulders on countless trails, never once complaining and always laughing when Ellie proudly shouts, “We did it!!!” at the destinations.
Anyway, Ellie was in a Mommy mood and was only allowing me to hold her. We were on a hike to Yosemite Falls and she was working very hard to get her way, which still didn’t seem to make her happy. So we were all admiring the amazing waterfalls while Ellie was busy trying to pull my hair and jump out of my arms. Suddenly, she noticed the beautiful surroundings, paused, and said, “Oh. Pretty.”
