July 24, 2017 | Sometimes E is a bit of a homebody, which I don’t mind too much, but I also like for her to see different things! Especially downtown, and this Monday it was time to ride the street car. It was free, and the original plan was to ride to the Rivermarket. But she heard the announcer say we were passing the Library, so I had no chance of getting her past that. Turns out the downtown library is incredible! Not only is the building gorgeous, but they had all sorts of activities and cool books. Since we were right by Crown Center, why not stop in for the free Thomas the Train exhibit?! I had originally told her that we were going to eat at the Train restaurant (Fritz’s) but on the way in the line was a mile long. After Thomas, we returned and the line was even LONGER, so I had a heart-to-heart with her about choosing another spot with no line. I was completely impressed with how she handled it. She admitted that it was sad, but we got to eat our food right away! I really love our days together, and when we got home D took her out back where she loves to play with lizards in the pond. She could be out there for hours!
