Ellie is not the most bravest soldier in the camp but when left alone she likes to gingerly try things out without aid. This is Ell's in her super coolio mega funk-a-rama dude shades which broke on holiday. Im desperate for any America blogger to find me the exact pair and I will pay them highly for their help. We love these shades because they have a close fit wrap-around style which allows ellie to enjoy the sunshine without being blinded or having her retinas feel like they are being gouged out with a spoon!!
Anyway - the spanish slide. I don't know how long we spent here but it was like - LOOOOOOOOOOONG! It was fun to watch her explore in the speed only known to so few and then witness her going down the slide, milimetre by milimetre. Its a start though, huh? Any faster and she would be off the end like a shot, whisked up by a passing zephyr and out into space, Im sure of it.
That night we went out for dinner and Mark and I ordered Paella. Ive never had it before so I was most intrigued to try it. We waited an age for it to arrive as the waiters say its the most popular dish on the menu.
No!!! Paella in spain is popular - you gotta be kidding, right? lol. Whilst we were waiting for all of our meals to arrive Ellie was completely fascinated
with a pepper pot. It blows me how fascinated kids can get with simple objects but Ellie, like me, is a magpie for all things small and pretty. She spent ages shaking the grains of pepper round this pot for almost ever and her captivation forced me to take a paicture. Nothing interesting to anyone else but to me the wonder in a childs face is priceless. And as a scrapper, moments like these are treasures as rich as rubies. Now im thinking what papers will go with her top? All suggestions gratefully received.
