The BIG getaway....


Well, it's Ellie, and I wanted to tell you why there haven't been many posts lately. Mommy and Daddy went away for the weekend...ALONE! Pappy and Grandma watched Reid and I for the whole weekend. We tried to take it easy on them so they wouldn't be too worn out! Mommy and Daddy went to Niagara Falls. Daddy had never been there, and it was only about a 4 hour trip from home, which was a nice distance. They had a nice time but missed Reid and I a whole bunch! Here are some pictures from their trip.

They went to a butterfly conservatory and saw over 2,000 butterflies freely flying all over. They have lots of really neat pictures of many different butterflies.

Daddy met Tiger Woods. Well, kind of. He is made of wax. Mommy and Daddy toured the wax museum of the stars which they said was fun.

They said their favorite part was the White Water Walk. They got to walk right by the river where the largest rapids in the world are. Mommy said it was an amazing walk and they loved this part of the trip.

And then the Maid of the Mist. Mommy and Daddy got prety soaked since they were at the FRONT of the boat. What a way to experience the Falls. It was a good time for everyone, and Mommy said she was thankful for the time with Daddy. We had fun with Grandma and Pappy, too...so it was a great weekend. Now, enough pics of them.....back to Reid in me real soon!

Soooooo glad you guys got away last weekend! You need that time together and Niagra Falls is a beautiful, romantic place. Hopefully this will be the first of many trips for the two of you. Many thanks to grandparents for making this happen!

Hello, and welcome to my page! I am so glad you are here. I am going to try and show you the average life of a 5 year old from my perspective. Mommy and Daddy will help me along the way if I get stuck.

Let me first introduce my family to you. I am Ellie. I am a 6 year old. I live in Ohio with my Mommy, Daddy, little brother Reid, and dog, Sophie. My mommy is a teacher. She teaches nine and ten year olds and loves it. She has been teaching for twelve years. My daddy works with computers. He works hard everyday.

We all love spending time together. I have wonderful grandparents and a terrific extended family. I am a very lucky girl. Thank you for visiting my page. Write to me any time. I love getting mail!!!

Many blessing to you all.

Love,
Little Ski (Ellie)
