We had a fun weekend with our company. Sunday we went to the aquarium, and I think it was good for Ellen to be able to run off some energy. In this picture, she's posing with the turtle in the tank. Can you see him?
After the aquarium, we went to Perkins for lunch. Ellen wanted me to write her name on the kids' menu, so I wrote it in dots and had her trace it. She did pretty well, so I asked her to write it freehand, and she did it! (Keep in mind, she turned three at the end of October.)
If you look closely, you can see her name written under Dora on her coloring page. Next to her name are two stick figures. She proudly told me that those were Mommy and Daddy.
