Nana weekend...Cascade Springs

My Mom came down last weekend to help me get ready for baby...mostly we played (and she organized/cleaned because she couldn't help herself..:-)....and it was wonderful to have her here, as always. Ellie, though, was a bit of a pill about taking any pictures with her...e.g....



But, I did capture some fun moments as they were swinging over at our cousins. 



The open-eyed kiss is pretty cute...a little unnerving...but mostly cute....



I also attempted a 'sunflower' photo shoot up at Sundance. It was not a huge success...mixed lighting, no water or playground that Ellie could get super jazzed about, and as it turns out bees like sunflowers too...so I heard a lot of "Bee-Bee!! (ellie's word for ANY flying insect...).




Lambie came with.




We had a fun family night up at Cascade Springs along the Alpine Loop with the Smiths. Ellie loved the boardwalks, the vegetation signs, and the water fountains.





She did not however, enjoy being told that she could not boulder on another patron's cool Jeep in the parking lot. She naturally assumed the open-top jeep was parked there for her amusement...



"Wa-wa"

Not sure this is what the Bureau of land management had in mind for their bronzed wildflower signs...but whatev....

And then we quickly lost steam, Ellie got tired and hungry, a sucker was a quick fix that rapidly turned into a dirt magnet...and it was time to be on our way down.
