Chilly day at the park

Even though its only been in the 40's around here, it seems warm. So, we decided to go to the small neighborhood park. Ellie loves being outside. She picks up all the little rocks along the way, and leaves and sticks, and gets frustrated when her little hands are full and she can't pick up anything else without dropping something.
I went down the little slides with her a couple of times, and helped her down go down herself a few times. She's heavy, so that's quite the work out, picking her up and holding her slide down. She loved it though, but she didn't quite understand why she couldn't just walk back up the slide.

Ellie got a new ball that we brought to the park and she loved chasing it around too.

Since she loves being outside so much, it was hard to get her to leave the park. She doesn't care that she's cold, she just wants to play. At least she didn't cry or have a fit when I finally did get her home. I can't wait until the weather is nicer so we can spend a lot more time outside.

How fun! She is such a cutie pie! I think it is funny watching her try to carry everything in sight!

She is already a pack-rat and she is only 1...taking after her old Auntie Joanne.

But she is the cutest little pack-rat I have ever seen.
