Smacky, the New Dairy Queen

Aurora had a hard evening. She screamed unless Gary was holding her, and she didn't want him to sit down while he was holding her, either. She didn't want to eat, she didn't feel like talking, and she certainly didn't want to sit on the floor and play quietly while people were cooking dinner.

After dinner, which for her was two bites of carrots and 4 peas and a few squirms that almost landed her on the floor, she and I took a long walk to a surprise destination.

And voila! Here is Smack's first ice cream cone from the Dairy Queen on 60th and Duke. I got a three mile walk, Smacky got some exciting sights to look at and we both got some tasty ice cream.

I need to go wash the stickiness off myself now. . .

String Cheese Smack

Aurora tried some string cheese yesterday as I was packing her food for today.

She did take some chomps but I think she was more interested in the texture of it.

Strange- when she gets non-food items, she just wants to chew on them, but when she gets food, she'll examine it.

Maybe I just didn't let her chew on that rock long enough on Saturday to let her get to examining it...
