It had snowed in the night, and this morning the sun was shining brightly and the sky was the special blue that it is after a snowfall. The ferry ride was especially beautiful with sun shining on the water and the snow capped mountains all arounds us.
But what was waiting for us on the other side eclipsed their beauty:
Dancing with Gramma to the CD we got him for his b'day. He loves music!!!
Captured one of my favorite expressions of his:
sweet with a bit a the mischievious lurking behind
that little smile!
Buzy little bee!
Always trying to get Auntie M's glasses....
...Ah, sweet success!
We took a little ride to one of Danielle's favorite little craft and gift stores (filled with dangerously cute stuff!!!) and Dante took the opportunity to squeeze in a quick cat nap as he'd been far to buzy to bother with one earlier!
So of course, I had to go back into a different section of the store where I had seen some plastic children's hats so I could buy them from him. Once again, though I doubt his parents have hard hats or firemen's hats laying about the house, Dante promptly recognized them as hats and delightedly put them on his head! And happily took them home with him!
When we got home, he showed Daddy his new acquisitions and laughed at Daddy wearing his hats and then gave goodbye kisses to Gramma and Auntie M as we took our departure and he went off for a much needed real nap.
