Not flesh of my flesh
nor bone of my bone
but still miraculously my own.

Never forget for a single minute
you didn't grow under my heart
but in it!

New Hampshire Camping Trip Day 2: Storyland

Gabriella survived her first night camping and sleeping in a tent! We all got ready in the morning, had breakfast at the camp site, and then headed to Storyland.:Walking through Storyland brought back vague childhood memories of visiting as a child. It is such a cute park and was well-suited for Gabriella's age.One of the most clear memories that I had of my visits to Storyland as a child was of playing in the little story book themed houses. Gabriella enjoyed playing in them as well, but she was still a bit too young to really "understand" them or know the corresponding nursery rhymes and/or stories. Gabriella had a great time exploring the park: Gabriella and Ava played in a ball pit. I love this picture of Ava taking Gabriella's hand to help her in! So sweet!: 1, 2, buckle my shoe...:
...3, 4, shut the door...:
Gabriella loved going on all of the rides:
Gabriella gets very moody when she does not have a nap and this trip was not very conducive to napping, so, by the end of each day, Gabriella was very irritable. The only naps that she got were during the car rides home from the parks back to the camp site. This was the first of two major tantrums of the trip!:
After her tantrum, Gabriella decided to get up and take a stroll by herself! We were, of course, near her and watching her, but she did not even check to make sure we were nearby. Notice her hands in her pockets, she has recently discovered pockets! Too funny! My little stinker!:
After the tantrum and the "stroll," Gabriella was being sassy.:
Little Ms. Sassy Pants!:

We had a fun, tiring day at Storyland. It was so neat to reminisce and give Gabriella the opportunity to build the same types of memories that I have.
