We had a great couple of days with the grandparent, and the extended family who lives in Buffalo. We checked out the local waterfall, the harbor, and of course got lots of ice cream. Oh, and I can't forget that Lexi marshed lots of mallows at the campfire with Papa's help.
Lexi and I walked the full length of the breakwall in the harbor, and Lexi insisted on talking, waving, etc. to all the people we walked by, and anyone she saw in a sailboat, kayak, etc. who came close enough that she could holler at them.
My favorite conversation went as follows:
Lexi: Mommy, who is that lady (pointing to a lady in a pink shirt sitting on the rocks).
Me: That is a lady eating her lunch on the rocks. Do you want to say hi?
Lexi: Hi! What's your name? (To my knowledge, she has never been brave enough to ask someone else's name)
Lady: I'm Kristie. What's your name?
Lexi: Lexi-bean, and this is Kelly, she's walking next to me.
Me: Say good-bye so we can keep walking.
Lexi: Bye Kristie.
Kristie: Bye. Have fun.
Lexi: You have to say bye Lexi!
(Lexi felt a need to help me write my story)
Kristi: Goodbye Lexi.
