This is a picture that John snapped on our way to Pendleton this past weekend. We were stopped near the top of the Snoqualmie summit while the road was cleared of an accident. It was snowing and Lily would reach her hand out the window to catch the falling flakes she'd never seen before. On the trip back home we made a pit stop along the way. John got Lily out of her car seat because she had spilled crackers all over herself and while he was cleaning up the mess she sat on my lap in the driver's seat and played with the steering wheel and all the fascinating buttons. It took all her might but she was able to figure out how to honk the horn. I know she was impressed with her accomplishment and her proud giggles were contagious. She was not happy when it was time to go and she had to get back in her seat. For the next several miles her hands were extended to an imaginary horn in front of her and through tears of frustration we heard, "BEEEEEP!", "BEEEEEP!"
