Anna's Big Adventure

On Thursday night, my sister Emily came into town, and on Friday morning she and Anna flew to El Paso to visit my parents. I honestly don't know who was more excited, Anna or my mom! It is Anna's first big trip without her parents. She is having a grand time. Yesterday, she met everyone at my mom's office, then they went to Peter Piper Pizza. Anna rode her first Merry-go-round, and you can see the joy on her face, above! Later, they went to buy a "cowgirl outfit" including boots and a hat.

Today they went to the zoo. My mom said at the sea lion show, the audience was told after the show was over, the trainers would come down for questions. Anna said, "I have a question!" She was the only child who did. She asked them, "Why do they eat fish?" with a disgusted look on her face (she does not care for sea food, despite eating Alaskan Snow Crab on her first birthday). The trainers explained to her that it is their favorite food.

It is so great to see Anna having fun new adventures with people she loves. Anthony and I feel it will increase her independence and natural curiosity. We are enjoying some solo time with Colin, and we can't wait to get her at the airport tomorrow!

What a big girl! Sounds like the grandparents are lavishing her with all kinds of wonderful things. Most of all, can you imagine the memories she'll take home with her? Wow.
