Winter Walk

While Tiffany and Didi went to go visit-teaching, Ellie and I explored the grounds of "Fragrant Water Gardens," the apartment complex where we live. I made sure to bundle up Ellie (4 pairs of pants, 4 shirts, 2 hats) to reduce ridicule from the natives, though it is never enough to eliminate their collectivist remarks. It had been a while since we roamed the paths of our protected neighborhood (except out of necessity), and I was reminded why we pay so much every month for to live here! (We really only got to visit the nearest park area of the complex before the batteries ran out.)

(The first floor window behind the car is our living room.)

It looks like a lovely place to live. And I love the doggie hat, Elle.

Mostly this is a comment for the last couple of posts. I loved the movies about Ellie's comments on the doctor. It is fun to hear her talking. She's really growing up. I hope we get to see you guys when you come back and pick up your stuff in Provo. I miss you guys. By the way, I love Ellie's layers of clothes. Too cute.
