Special places

I love that when we asked Addie what she wanted to do today she didn't hesitate.

MOMMY: What do you want to do today?
ADDIE: Can we have a picnic???
MOMMY: With the whole family?
ADDIE: Yeah!
MOMMY: Where should the picnic be?
ADDIE: Can we go to that special place where you first met Daddy?
MOMMY: Where I first met Daddy?

Apparently she and Daddy drove past the CU campus and he told her that we met there. Addie was the one who decided it was a very special place. And so we went to the Boulder campus and had a picnic. The girls were in awe of the campus and the thought of it all being one school, and one where the students can live! Ellie's interest ended when her feet started to get sore but Addie seemed to really appreciate the meaning of it all.

As the end of the day, I thanked her for her wonderful idea. She was proud of herself for coming up with such a great idea. I love that she knows that some places are special and she knows exactly why.
