Outdoor Excursion

Far removed from the Rockies, Eliza's first thought was that a picnic in the mountains is risky; she might fall. After napping during the drive into Mill Creek Canyon, Eliza was very much at home in her surroundings.
Mona was very excited for HOT DOGS and Eliza enjoyed helping Grandpa.Expressive Mona, at dessert time. She's enjoying K-Toos*, perfect for the allergic cookie monster, courtesy of a loving Aunt Sara.
(*They're such a great find, so here are the details. Or maybe you're just plain curious. How do they achieve a light, crispy cookie with a creamy center? Vanilla cookies (also available in chocolate) from Kinnikinnick that are gluten, wheat, dairy, casein, egg, and trans fat free. Ingredients: Icing [Icing Sugar (may Contain 2-3% Corn Starch), Non Hydrogenated Shortening (Palm Fruit and/or Canola), Vanilla, Soy Lecithin, Salt), Sugar, Pea Starch, Potato Starch, Non Hydrogenated Shortening (Palm Fruit and/or Canola), White Rice Flour, Water, Tapioca Starch, Glucose, Pea Protein, Sodium Carboxy Methylcellulose, Salt, Vanilla, Pea Fibre, Guar Gum, Inulin, Ammonium Bicarbonate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Soy Lecithin.)What would a fire-pit picnic be without smores? Eliza loved them before the first bite, she's no dummy, and I'm pretty sure she had at least two. Of course she knows the rules concerning dessert, so when Grandma pulled out the Oreos a while later and Grandpa handed her one... she raised her hands up in the air and threw Mommy a comical look. What's a girl to do?
"I think that's too much dessert!"
Mmmm. Thanks again Grandma & Grandpa!
