Family field trip

Today when we told Ellie to fetch her shoes so we could go out, she pulled out MY shoes, slipped them on and proceeded to strut toward the door. We spent the afternoon at the BYU Monte L. Bean Museum--sure, the animals are no longer alive, but that failed to extinguish Ellie's amazement and curiosity. We stayed so long that Ellie missed her naptime window and we honestly didn't realize how whackered she was until we looked up the dinner table and there she was, sandwich securely clenched in one hand and beginning to drool through her open, slumbering mouth.
