I thought bringing elephant along would make a cute prop.
As is turns out, walking elephants requires near constant attention.
One must make sure they are upright, and in fact moving in a forward direction.
And make sure their string remains untangled.
Of course you don’t want to pay such close attention to your ellie that you forget to stop and smell the flowers along your walk.
Or check out important happenings around the corner.
But walking elephants in the beautiful autumn sunshine is good for the soul.
We even brought little sister along.
Breaks are necessary when there are Mia’s on the chase.
But ellie walking is a serious business.
So serious there’s no time for these annoying photo ops.
