Blaine

Lots of fun over Labor Day. Mimi and Papa rented a cabin and Ella got to spend a lot of time on the beach and in the pool.

Papa took Rhys on long walks.

This is how she decided to dress after we got back from Blaine:

After West Seattle

We hung out outside and Ella played in the pool, even though it wasn’t that warm outside

Day at the beach

We literally had to run to the dock to catch the 9am water taxi, since the next one wasn’t until 10:30. I had to carry Grant while my sister ran with the stroller carrying the two girls.
Then I even had to drop Grant to stop the boat from leaving. We made it? Had fun playing with shovels and buckets, flying a kite, running around and eating at Maribation Mai Tai.

Rhys and Brooke stayed with Camila because truthfully, they cramp out style.

“Ella faz”

Nowadays Ella has to do everything herself and she gets very mad when you try to help her. From putting her shoes on (took a looking time to put on her Dora shoes so I ended up putting them on) to getting in and out of the bathtub, closing the toothpaste tub or getting on the car seat, Ella has to do it all

We are back at home and Ella seems happy to be in her own house with her own stuff. In fact, the little vain one pulled out a bunch is accessories for her outfit. I guess more is more.

Mimi and Papa in town

We had a great time with them.
Lots of time with them and it was nice to have the help!
