What a BEAUTIFUL and FUN day we had today! You gotta love January in AZ - it is just beautiful. Cool, but sunny days - anyways it is cool for us, in the low 70's. Gary had some comp time he had to take so he is off the rest of the week. He is so excited to get to spend some full days with Monkey. He took her out to lunch today and then to work to show her off a little. Once they got home the three of us played out front. First in the wagon (dang! I wish I had my camera out then) Gary pulled Monkey & I both around the block in wagon. Then my little Monkey pulled me around on the driveway in her wagon. Then I remembered I had bought this Elmo kite for our trip to CA this summer and it never got used. So I got it out and Gary got it flying for her even though there was very little wind. She loved it! While Gary was getting it ready I went inside and got the camera. I am so glad I did.
The got 2 spools of string on it. She was just thrilled when Grampa let her hold it and be in control! Can you see it spinning here? It was really climbing high!
I just love this picture of the two of them - I wish it was a little sharper. But I am just glad I caught it.
This is before the second spool - she was so excited as it kept climbing higher & higher
Up, Up & Away!
After awhile it was time to put it away. As it got closer and closer to her, she got more and more excited and would just squeal!
She would chase those bright green tails and try to grab Elmo
She yelled when Elmo finally came crashing down!
I can't wait for tomorrow - Gary and I are taking her to Lake Pleasant for the afternoon. I think we will take Elmo with us again. Hopefully I will get some good pictures of her 1st trip to the lake!
I hope you all had a GREAT day too
