You may have seen this wagon wheel on the blog before... maybe not. This was 2004.
|Me, it was a little colder then. and I was a little bigger.|
After breakfast we headed over to the ASU campus. Again I know Ella got tired of me telling stories about the places I used to live and play, but I kept them coming anyway.

|in Jimmy Smith Park|
We found Jimmy Smith Park right across the street from the music building. This tiny crappy little bench has been made fun of on youtube. Somebody even ran a 5k inside the park. There was 1 aide station and a 10 runner limit, the park won't hold any more people than that. Took about 100 laps around the park to get the 5k. Hilarious! But there was a stream that ran on the back side of the park that Ella really fell for. The next trip up there I'll have to plan for more hikes and waterfalls, she really loved it. She even grabbed a selfie down in the creek.

|We also bought that horse necklace on King street. She loved it!|

On our way out of town I made one other detour to show her the first apartment I ever had, a little one bedroom that Kelley eventually moved into as well. She was barely interested. But as we were heading down the mountain, she did grab a pic of the views from the road.
Boone Day rocked. It turned out much better than I had hoped it would. I think Ella had a really good time walking around and enjoying the beauty of the mountains and I really enjoyed sharing so much of my past with her. It was special bonding time that I will always treasure, and I hope she will do the same.
