Grandpa & Grandma Hatch came down on Tursday night and Friday afternoon after Grandpa had run to Phx. for some parts, with Alex, they took Ellie home with them! She was so excited! The day before when she had gotten in trouble she told Rich "I going to the mountains with Pa" With all the attitude a 2 1/2 year old can muster! It was so cute!
When Grandpa left Friday morning to go get his parts Ellie thought that he was leaving her and was very upset until I told her that Grandma was upstairs asleep and that she could go cuddle with her........... then it was ok.
Alex was so excited to go with Grandpa. But before they left he came back to the front door and said "I changed my mind!" and almost in tears he said "I'll miss you to much mom!" It nearly broke my heart! I told him "Everything is going to be fine, you'll be home in just a few hours and I will be here! Go have some fun with grandpa!" It took him a few minutes but he decided that he didn't want to miss out on the one on one time with Grandpa! They had a good time and Alex only missed the first two hours of school.
As soon as Ellie's bag was packed she was ready to go!!! She had already picked her car seat up off the grass and carried it to Pa's truck! So she grabed the handle of her suitcase and was off!
She didn't even want to wait for me to take her picture, good thing I had my phone so I could get a couple of pictures!
She was soooo HAPPY!
Dani was Jumping to that she could see Ellie and say goodbye!
