This is from August of last year, when E was almost 2.
He had just discovered You Tube and was immediately hooked.
His favorite video at the time was the old
Mana Mana clip
from Sesame Street. That's what he's asking for here.

Here are some road signs we saw on our trip.
And some signs we
Beware of frogs (they were flopping all over the road

Just like cabin experiences I had as a child, the trailer
has a lovely collection of old stuff. This includes astroturf on the floor
of the enclosed patio and (whee!) a macrame lampshade.

The library at Pinetop had a computer in the children's
section that Elliott got to use. He's still talking about it
and trying to get us to take him back there.

This is the trailer we stayed in over our weekend in Show Low.
Isn't it wonderful? It is a cat ready to pounce.
We had a refreshing little trip & enjoyed the mountain beauty.

A couple of years ago, my husband developed an rpg board game

is one of my favorite and most used things!
It serves as diaper bag, traveling art kit, music tote, and
all-around life organizer. Not to mention the place where
I can always find my lip balm.
