I could just tell you that my sisters and I tried to use the apartment complex hot tub, only to find out when we got there and tried to open the gate that it was closed (we had to hunt someone down to tell us why). But that's boring. Instead, I will act out the incident as Ella's inner monologue:
"Are you sure I can wear this in public?"
"How am I supposed to know where to go? You're the adults!"
"Uh-oh...looks like we're locked out? Hey, if I pull on this will my robe open?"
"Just pretend like you're tired and Momma will carry you home! Hee, hee!"
