This week’s theme of the You Capture blog carnival hosted by Beth over at I Should Be Folding Laundry is Feel.
This was immediately after Grace said those dreaded words, "Mommy, I want you to pick me up." We had already been walking for a while; the guys continued walking up without us. I carried her about 10 feet to some shade, gave her some water, and then she was recharged and ready to go again. She never asked to be carried after that.
The hazy Atlanta skyline:
Fearless...In the next picture, she was starting to go up as I took the pictures of the skyline. She told me, "I don't need to hold the handrail, Mommy." (She did hold my hand and I held onto the handrail.)
Shortly after we climbed the handrail portion, we met back up with the guys as they were on their way down. Robert shared his water with Grace. The guys had refilled their water bottles at a water fountain at the top of the mountain.
The guys continued their way down, and Grace wanted to continue climbing with me but she was very thirsty and I knew we'd run out of water again. This was as far as Grace and I made it. I took some more pictures as Grace sat and drank her water.
Updated to add these...
Oh, how could I forget? Chocolatey bliss!
These are absolutely delightful! They are Nestle Treasures: 50% cacao...dark chocolate truffle...with crunchy cacao bits! And they were $.99 for a bag at our Bell's Discount Grocery Store!
And the feeling of joy with yet another visit from the Tooth Fairy, leaving a Bugs Bunny kind of look...which he demonstrated to me early one morning after shaking me awake.
