duck, duck, pigeon!

after traveling all the way to rome, eleanor was more interested in chasing pigeons outside the colosseum than going inside it. is this why most people don’t take their 21 month old to tour a 2,000 year old building? ;)

  2. oh kids…. too funny! we have a similar video of my boyfriend's niece running back and forth between the boys playing frisbee… she keeps chasing and chasing and chasing just like lil miss E, haha.

  15. She must have loved the pigeons in Venice. Did y'all pose with them? So many people do it, but after all these years of living in NY, I can't help but think of them as vermin with wings.

  16. Your little girl could be a double for Boo from Monster's Inc.,do you remember that movie? What an adorable girl!
