June 11, 2010 is one of my fondest memories with Elyse. We did plenty of fun things together but for some reason in particular this day really sticks out. The sun was shining and it was the perfect opportunity for us to spend time outside. We put on our shoes, grabbed the chalk, and headed out the front door. Elyse spent time drawing pictures on each piece of concrete and going back to previous drawings to add a little something here or there. We watered the plants then Elyse hosed herself down. She played silly games like putting the bowl on her head and chasing after the red ball. It was not just a time that we played together but a time that I really got to see her silly yet creative side, a time that I will always remember.
