An important skill

Yesterday afternoon we found ourselves in need of some time out of the house. All of us. So, we went to a local Mexican restaurant for an early dinner. Dillon, being excited at the not so often occasion of eating in a restaurant was very excited. Even more so when she discovered the opportunity to practice a new skill she has- blowing out candles. She went from booth to booth, crawling up into the bench to oh-so-carefully blow out each candle. There weren't really many other people in the restaurant and she didn't go to any tables that were occupied, so we let her do her thing. She was quite proud of herself. We got a chuckle out of it. I'm sure the staff at the restaurant were thrilled to have to re-light all the candles, but hey, she could've been smearing food on the walls.
