Last week I ventured down to Leif Erickson Park with the kids (it still feels odd to say kids. plural. more than one. I’ll eventually get used to it) for our first outing without Pete. We met Krista & Caleb near the Rose Gardens and took a long stroll down the Lakewalk. I wasn’t sure how Ella would do, but she was great at keeping up with us and needed very little prodding to continue down the trail. I’ve put off getting a double stroller to see how she does on her own. So far, so good…but we’re only a few weeks in.

Miss Ella insisted on wearing one of my hats and a sweater since I was also wearing a sweater and a hat for our walk. It made me happy to know that she wanted to be like me. I’m so in love with my little girl that any time she wants to do something just because I’m doing it melts my heart.
After a long stroll down the Lakewalk, we spent time playing on the stone stage at the bottom of Leif Erickson Park. Ella was enchanted. (Wait, that’s a movie, isn’t it?) She sang just to hear her voice echo in the enclosed areas and, of course, had to add a few dance moves, too.
I’ve been experimenting more with a new camera app on my iPhone. It’s fun to play with the lighting features and frames. I think it’s called Camera Plus. I’m always amazed at what my little iPhone can do. Someday, I’d really love to have a nice camera. Maybe before we go to Kenya this winter. Maybe. For now, my trusted iPhone definitely does the trick.
I’ve also just started using Instagram. If you’re on it, you can follow me at cupoftea. And then maybe I can follow you, too!
