Or when we were once in the toy store picking out a new puzzle to do and we stopped to look at a puzzle of the beautiful view of Santorini and Hailey said “Mommy isn’t that the place in Greece we went to when we rode the donkey up the mountain?🐴” Yes Hailey, yes we did, and your sister was just a baby… diapers, pacifier and all making the trek up with Daddy. Success.
