Robert had the week before he started his new job off so that we could get some things situated and enjoy a little time together! On Thursday of that week (which has now been several weeks ago!) we had a special morning with our biggest girl. Finley's class at school had an opening that day so we took her so that she could stay on her little schedule without us having to worry about her nap. Ellington was really excited about our morning. We didn't tell her what we were doing and gave her clues in between each stop so that she could guess the next place we were going.
Our first stop! Donuts!
Other than when we went to see Frozen, this is the first time that the three of us have been somewhere together since Finley was born. It was so special having this time with Ellington!
Our next stop was Campus Bookmart...our favorite little bookstore downtown!
I told Ellington that she could pick out any Valentine's book that she wanted as a little treat. Of course she chose a Dora book. Ah! I am not a Dora fan and we certainly don't buy Dora merchandise but I did tell her she could pick any one so I let her get it. We also got my pick which was a little more of what I had in mind. :)
Next was the BIG SURPRISE. We went to "open gym" at the local gymnastics place. We've only been a few times so this was a real treat for Ellington! She was sooooo excited!!!
Daddy jumped in too!
We had such a fun morning with our biggest girl! It was nice to not have to worry about nap, diapers, and nursing for one morning. :)
Daddy also gave Finley lots of extra snuggles before he had to leave!
