Sactown & Back Down

LO and I took a little trip up to Sacramento this past week for a graduation and some general merriment.  LO is really a good traveller or just really addicted to the iPad.  I throw a snack at her every other hour and ask if she needs to pee every third hour and then not a peep.  I listen to music and we make the 400 mile trip in under six hours.  We used to stop for food but now we pack snacks and it is wayyyyy better.  I upgraded on the snacks and everyone is happy.

We came back for some end of the year merriment and the last of our ballet/tap classes for a bit.

We went on a "bike ride" today and LO is the most awesome slow motion bike rider in the world.  This video is not slow motion.  She also has the habit of screaming, "STEER" or "BRAKE" instead of doing the actual action.  It's pretty awesome.  She stops to ask about a dog that is a mile away that is actually a lady with a rolling bag.  It took us almost two hours to go to the grocery store less than a half mile away and back.  I think the fake Uggs and p.j.s just really complete the whole scene.

To make this post as convoluted and non-sensical as possible, I thought I should add that I like this shopping site, Golden Tote and their June sale is happening on Monday.  I don't really shop for clothes because four year olds don't care what you are wearing but this site makes me feel like I am getting some unique items that aren't pricey.  You choose one or two items and then they send you a bag with a few more items in the bag.  Their clothing line is sold at Anthropologie and they design one item per month that goes in the larger tote.  I tried it last month on the small tote and I am going whole hog this month on the large tote.  You can send the whole tote back if you don't like it or get on their FB trading site and people switch clothes.  You can also see how ordinary people are styling the clothes, too.

I'm not getting compensated to say I like their stuff but their I did post a referral link.
