We are enjoying Utah, trying to get used to the colder weather. We are in escrow for a great house in Sandy, UT. It has a guest room and bath downstairs, so you are always invited. You know I love to play hostess.
Today, Tom and Ella flew to Kansas to visit Grandpa and Grandma. Tom has a free ticket. I stayed because our airline budget is being put into the 'fridge, washer, dryer, paint, tile, ect.' budget. Plus, it means 4 mornings of sleeping in. Maybe I'll get over this cold. We Love You!!

She just laughs when the carousel starts turning and points as the kids next to her go up and down.
While waiting in line this last time, she did not want to be held. She'd hold onto the bars (we love hand santizer) while we waited and then I'd help her walk along further up the line. Then she'd grap on to the railing again and watch Dumbo fly around. I am really going to miss watching her watch the wonder of this place. She makes it the happiest place on earth.
Ella loved walking around and looking at everything. I think her favorite part of the museum was the way that her voice echoed in the quiet, large rooms. She definately thought the place was too quiet. The gardens and buildings were so beautiful. Here we are by one of the fountains near the entrance. This was towards the end of our visit. It was a hot, bright day and Ella was all partied out. She had a nice long nap on the drive back down from L.A. (after we stopped at Dee Dee Reese for cookies and ice-cream).

Tom isn't working this week, so we made a list of all the things we want to do one last time before we move. The beach was number one. We spent the day splashing, digging up crabs, eatting sand and grabbing Ella as she tried to crawl into every incoming wave.

Ella favorite rides are the carousel, the Dumbo ride and of course Small World.

They had a petting zoo. These deer were so gentle. I had never been so close to one before.

Daddy teaching Ella how to read the waves...which ones to catch and which ones to let go.
Daddy's little surf girl.
Dinner Time! The sun was so low in the evening sky that we had to just lay the umbrellas on the sand to get some shade for the babies.

We spent the 4th of July this year up in Santa Barbara at the home of Sheryl Marquis. It was like staying in a fancy resort, private beach and all. This picture was taken in her backyard.
Ella means 'beautiful fairy'. It suit her. She is magical in her sweet pixie way.
This is mommy's favorite picture of Ella.
Here is Ella on Father's Day, wearing the pretty outfit that Grandma Cardon sent her.
