My Day at the Park with E

Yesterday morning I woke up to squeals from my cousin's daughter, Emma, running through the house asking if I would take her to the park.  As I rubbed the sleepy from my eyes, drank my coffee and attempted to wake up, I heard,

"E (what she's decided to call me), can we go to the park today?"

"Sure, E (what I've decided to call her)," I reply, "I don't see why not."

"Yipeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!"  I hear as she takes off down the hall to get her shoes.

I got her to stand still and look at me for one shot...

And then I lost her again...

Moving to Portland and getting re-connected with family and friends has been quite the blessing.
