Elinor has a style all her own. She likes pigtails and overalls and wearing bandanas. She's doesn't have much use for the froo-froo of dance competitions. We played a lot of the dot-game and she played Minecraft on the Kindle while we waited for Bethany to dance.
Her one desire in St. George was to climb some red rocks. We found these just behind the outlet stores where we did much of our shopping. The same stores Elinor had no interest in going to. The same stores where she hid in the clothes racks because she didn't want to have to go try on a dress in the dressing room. That's my Elinor!
We drove down on Faith's birthday. She is officially seven years old now, but every one of Faith's birthdays comes as an unpleasant surprise to me. WHAT? She really is getting older? It doesn't feel like it. She still seems so young to me. She loves Jake and the Neverland Pirates. It is a show on the Disney channel for young children. It's really aimed at a younger age than she, but she discovered it when we had cable during the Olympics and she was still asking for the toys. And since she doesn't really need anything, we just got her what she wanted. And from the pictures you can see she was thrilled.
I say let them be little kids as long as they want. You want three year old pirate toys? You got it. Except that Cannon and George are going crazy for her toys.
This game, "Who Shook Hook" was actually pretty fun and we ladies enjoyed playing it in our hotel room.
