We do not have a photograph of our most memorable moment. Rylyn was whining as she had just woken from car nap. It was time for dinner. On our way home from the zoo we stopped at a restaurant called Casey's that has a gluten-free menu. We agreed Rylyn could bring her blanket in to the restaurant (something we rarely do as it is a bedtime only friend) and we would order her a chocolate milk. The decisions were made so that we could enjoy dinner rather than battle the whines (we'll save that for home).
I went off the washroom with the trailing words, "Get her a large chocolate milk, the small glasses are never enough." I came back to a supersize glass and a kid chugging milk through a straw. She drank almost all the milk in one (very long) sip. I am pretty sure the capacity of the glass exceeded her stomach. She went from being the grumpiest kid on the planet to the happiest. I will let the pictures below speak for the rest of our trip.

"When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him?" ~Psalm 8:3,4
-Thank you God that You are mindful of me. Of my family. And for the beauty of this Earth that reminds of us of Your greatness. Amen.
