Hotel Mazzaropi

Ella had a grand time at the farm hotel. She was the youngest kid there, but was right up there with the other kids riding the charrete, pony, milking a cow, feeding the chickens, etc.

Every time I asked her if she wanted to do something like riding the pony, she would say “yes.” I wasn’t sure if she understood what I was saying and was convinced she would balk when she realized what she signed up for. I was wrong. When she was up, she would say “my turn” get up on the horse, cart, you name it! Fearless little girl she is.

When the charrete left without her, she took off running after it and screaming “Tia, Tia” until they stopped and put her up there.
