This past weekend we headed up to the High Uintas for a little family R&R. Everyone had a great time, especially the kids. I overheard this dialogue between the two oldest:
E: "L., I am SO happy right now...are you so happy too?"
L: "So happy too E.!"
They could not contain their joy at being in a new place, sleeping in a different bed, and having new things to amuse themselves with--namely the rickety wooden structure E. named "Asie" (like "Asia" but with an "eee" sound on the end). What five-year-old pretends to run a restaurant? I have to admit that Ben and I were quite impressed and amused at the same time. You all just wait a few years (okay maybe decades) and this little gal might be up there with Thomas Keller!
