Today was wonderful! The sun was shining, it wasn't too hot, and Bella had big plans for us! She climbed into bed with me this morning telling me it would be a good day for a hike. I couldn't argue, it was gorgeous out and well the reality is she can be pretty convincing with those big blue eyes. I had some projects to work on at the studio so I told her if we could get my work done then we would go for a hike.
We decided if we were going to hike that a picnic would be good too! She immediately headed to the kitchen to make our lunch. (peanut butter sandwiches with a side of pretzels).
On our way to the trail we found this guy crossing the road. Of course we stopped to rescue him and Bella named him Tootles.
Best peanut butter sandwich EVER!
I absolutely LOVE these pictures of her! She was adamant about leading the hike and I love how she takes in all of her surroundings.
She insisted on taking my picture.....she even posed me by the tree. (future photographer perhaps?)
When we got home she wanted to get in the pool but after about 5 minutes she admitted that it was cold and decided to join me in the sunshine. It was wonderful and she clearly thought she was big stuff! She put her arm around me and told me I was the best mom EVER and that I was her best friend......
Thats a good day folks!
