Here is an amazing picture that my talented brother-in-law Nate took of our little girl. Maybe she'll have to be a cowgirl next year for Halloween.

But the story for today is about the sun. It finally came out after weeks of grey. I just wanted to soak it all up. Except, it was below zero...Anyway, we were in the car running some errands and the sun just happened to be in the awkward spot in its descent that makes it impossible to block for a two year old in the back seat.

Evie: Mommy, turn the light off!

Mike and I started looking at all the car lights trying to figure out what was she was talking about.

We finally noticed the sun in her eyes.

Mom: Evie, that's the sun.

The next thing we heard about made us wet ourselves.

Evie: Mommy, turn the sun off!

How the heck am I supposed to turn the sun off!?!

Mike: Evie, if we did that, everyone and everything on the planet would die.

She still didn't get it and proceeded to ask us to turn the sun off for the next 15 minutes until it was out of her eyes. Children have an amazing view of the world.
