Once Upon A Time

Once Upon A Time, there was a family of three. There was a momma, a daddy and a little girl. The family loved each other very much.

Every year they would take a trip together to celebrate their being a family. The family lived in a state shaped like a hand. They would take their trip to the thumb of the hand and it was good.

Every year they did the same thing. They stayed at the same hotel. They went to the same parade

and they went to the same restaurant where a train brought your food

and it was good.

They also took the same bike ride through the same park

and it was not good. Although the park had many beaches to explore, the little girl would have rather played with her legos in the hotel room or swam in the pool. She voiced her displeasure with the bike ride very vociferously "I'm the little girl", she cried. "You are the parents and you have to do what I say."

The parents tried to tell the little girl that was not the case, but she would not listen. The bike ride was ruined and the parents resolved never to do that again.

However, peace was restored in the land for the hotel had a pool. The little girl loved the pool and all was right with the world.

The little girl also loved animals so the parents took her to a farm. At the farm she was free to interact with all number of creatures. There were goats

and kittens.

And it was good.

The family loved their vacation.

They promised to take another vacation next year with Lion, their newest member. The little girl promised not to feed her brother to the cows and all was good.

Cute post. Looks like a fun vacation spot. It'll be so fun for you guys to share it with Lion next year.

I am glad she promised not to feed Lion to the cows, because that cow looks seriously hungry. Just look at his tongue!

I wish we had been able to do something like that with Oliver before the twins were born. I mean - we kind of did...but I was hugely pregnant and kind of exhausted by the toddler the whole time. As always - I loved the pictures of "the little girl."

Kittens on a farm? Hmmm. Glad she won't feel Lion to the goats. That's too funny.
