To add to the moment, we thought we'd drive out East to see a field of sunflowers. The hope was to take lots of really pretty sunset photos, but in that regard it was a bit of a disappointment. The sky was filled with smoke from the national fires going on right now, and the flowers were mostly spent. Next year we'll try to find a field during the first week of August. Just you wait!

I can't help but smile.

The girls returned today after visiting Gramma for a few days. I missed them so and I could tell that they missed me as well.
In tucking Ellie into bed I had a hunch that she needed more time with me. The fact that she wouldn't let go of my hand was a pretty good hint.
So what did I do? The only solution I could think of was to invite her to join me on my evening walk.
We spent the next hour walking 5,752 steps around the neighborhood, nearly 2.6 miles,chatting the entire time.
It was just what I needed and I am willing to bet that even though she ended up going to bed 2 hours after her bedtime, Ellie would say the same.
I sure do love spending time with that girl.
