I realized over the weekend that we hadn’t been to the pool all summer. Since today was chilly and rainy I asked Emma if she wanted to go to the pool. Add pool to the list with park and zoo of places she knows. If you ask if she wants to go to one of those places she walks to the laundry room door repeating it over and over and over again. There is no way I can change my mind after that…



Yesterday Emma and I enjoyed a beautiful afternoon at the park. She probably spent an entire hour in the swing. I tried to take her out a few times, but she wasn’t having it.


She did take a tiny break to check out this caterpillar, which she wasn’t too sure about.

Afterward we enjoyed a gelati from Rita’s. I probably should have changed her white shirt before… oh well.


After all that fun, we had a MISERABLE night. While the fall leaves are pretty, apparently the changing seasons give us stuffy noses, sneezing, watery eyes, etc. Emma and I hardly slept at all. We’re staying inside today and hopefully taking a nice long nap.
