weekend in dallas!



this past weekend, we took a really special trip to introduce ellie to two very important people in our lives: my dear friend, aunt jenny & ryan's best friend, uncle david. jenny is one of my dearest friends from dc & david grew up with ryan -- they both happen to live in dallas! so, ellie & i logged a lot of girl time with jenny & then grabbed frozen yogurt/cruised around SMU with david.

it was a perfect weekend -- lots of good conversation, wonderful meals & restful time. (it's incredible how much a baby slows you down!) it also happened to be national donut day while we were there & ellie girl gave a high chair a whirl for the first time (like most thing, we were most interested in how it tastes!). most precious was the nap ellie took on my lap before we headed to the airport.

my new traveling with a baby lifesaver? chewbeads! super stylish necklace / toy / teething device all in one & it can't fall on the nasty airport floor a thousand times! made a long security line a breeze :)
