Maisie's first manicure!

Okay, not technically a manicure - just a salon color. But still, it was a lot of fun.

A few days ago, I took Ella to the Minnesota Zoo's new penguin exhibit. It was a members-only preview, and I wanted to take Ellie because penguins are her absolute favorite animal, and because I rarely get to do fun things alone with her. We had a blast! But predictably, Maisie wanted to do something just with me. So a few days later, we went to get our nails done.

Maisie seemed a little skeptical when she was choosing her color...

sparkly pink, naturally!

But she loved the end result.

Afterwards we went to Pizza Luce and I tried to get a picture of her nails. First I asked her to hold up her hands in front of her face...

which didn't really get me the results I was after. So I just had her hold them out so you can see the sparkles, as well as the designs on her thumbs.

Lovely, isn't it?
