Daddy-Daughter Date

On Sunday, Ellie and I went to the movies together. We took the Metro up to Silver Spring to watch a special presentation called “Muppet Fairy Tales.” The Smithsonian is doing a tribute to Jim Henson, and the AFI has been showing some of Henson’s work at their Silver Theater. We rode the Metro up and walked the two blocks up to the theater to pick up our tickets. After grabbing a quick lunch, we headed into the theater for the show. Ellie really enjoyed it! Usually she just sits there kind of comatose watching the screen, but she was actually laughing along with the rest of the crowd.
We had a nice relaxing ride home, and Ellie even fell asleep on my lap for a little while. I couldn’t ask for a better day.
