princess tours

The Princess and I spent a little quality time together today.

I was at the hospital on official business, and she was there too, so we toured around the place, hand in hand.

We climbed up on verrrrry high stools so that we could look around as we had a snack. Hers was the biggest cinnamon bun ever - a two-hander that had to be mostly saved for later.

We explored the gift shop, full of bejeweled purses and bedazzled notebooks and soft teddy bears. We didn't even break any of the fragile knick-knacks, which is quite an accomplishment on my part.

We discussed the meaning of the word "lobby".

We went up some interesting-looking stairs, and gazed at the world below us. And then we came back down.

We discovered a garden - with gazebos!

And at the end of it all, in a pleasantly surprised tone of voice, she announced, "Well! I didn't know that ICU was like THIS!!!"
