Weekending: Magic Dragon Edition

I’m about to photo bomb you with magical pictures of my daughter. I can’t help it. It was so much fun taking so many photos and too hard to narrow it down to only a few, so I’m including… a lot….Just to warn you. Our weekend was a nice and easy one. Visits to the coffee shop and post office. Pancakes in the morning, visits with grandma and grandpa and friends.  It just so happened that on Friday at a play date, Ellie had tried on her friend’s very special dragon wings and tail and loved them so much that I asked my friend where she had gotten them. I was told they were handmade by a local artisan. Well, as we were downtown sending things off at the post office, we literally stumbled onto a holiday craft faire where the exact same dragon wings and tail were purchased! It was fate!  Jeff gave the go ahead for Ellie to pick out and take her very own set home. Ellie was completely transformed as soon as she put the dragon wings and tail on. She took off running down the avenue shouting, “I’m a dragon!” It was quite the sight. Later that afternoon we went back downtown with my parents. They had a live music event where they had shut the main streets down. Ellie danced her way through the town, still dawning her dragon suit. She captured everyone’s attention (even getting on the main screens at the music event). We danced our way down to the beach for a walk before dinner and Ellie enjoyed dancing in the puddles and chasing her Grandparents and Jeff and I enjoyed snapping photos and enjoying the magic that is our daughter.
