It was a lazy Sunday, but it was sunny and 50 degrees outside. We felt like we needed to get out of the house and do something. Obviously, our options are quite limited. So, we decided to take a drive in the mountains as a family.

It was nice to take in the mountain scenery and enjoy some fresh air. Plus, it was fun watching Ella. She is really enjoying her new car seat and the fact that she can face forward! There is so much to look at – – – and it is so different than anything she sees in her house each day. It is quite the adventure for her…something basic and simple but stimulating for Ella and relaxing for her parents.

Speaking of stimulation, I wanted to answer one of the questions posted about Ella’s extra bathtub in her bedroom. The bathtub is filled with uncooked pinto beans. Her occupational therapist places her in the tub with the beans to work on her tactile stimulation.

Other than our drive, it was just another Sunday. Looking forward to taking many more drives with the Bun in the coming days.
