As you may remember, we’re in Omaha for a long visit with family while Troy is back in Virginia, supervising packers and movers and wrapping up his turnover at work. We’ve been having a lot of fun, as you probably already know if you’ve seen the photos I’ve been posting everywhere (Instagram Flickr Facebook Twitter).
We’ve introduced Elliora to Pop Rocks. She loved them, of course.
Unsurprisingly, Elliora liked the mojito ice cream I got at Ted & Wally’s the other day. (That same day, they were also offering Negro Modelo-flavored ice cream. I sampled it; it was tasty.) A little more surprising was that she liked my iced latte. I let my mom have a sip of the same drink, and she said it was far too strong for her. Since then, Elliora has had a few sips of every cup of coffee I’ve had, smacking her lips and saying, “Mmmm, nice!” She also went crazy when we had roasted brussels sprouts for dinner the other night, shouting “SPROUTS!” when she saw them on her plate. I suspect her sophisticated palate might not survive her toddlerhood so I’m consciously enjoying it while it lasts.
Painting pottery with Katrina and Carly.
Annalie drew the steps of a dance she was teaching Aurora. She calls it Annalie’s Pas de Deux For Two. I especially love the facial expressions.
Annalie and I had a pedicure date.
We had brunch with friends.
Aurora and Elliora spiiiinnnnning in their new matching dresses.
We’ve had lovely visits with family.
Annalie likes the sweet potato chips at Cheeseburger in Paradise now! Troy and I have been trying to get her to eat them for years. Oh, and Elliora likes Runza sandwiches. No surprise there.
More fun with these goofballs (Zach told me about the water sculpture in the second photo, “We call this the Big Wet Ball!”)…and a bunch of other stuff that I haven’t Flickred photos of yet. Only a week left in Omaha, and then we’ll be off to San Diego!
