Today we spent ALL DAY getting ready for our upcoming trip to Yellowstone. We started out with a small hike around the Claremont Gardens. It has been a couple of months since Brixie Lee was in her backpack carrier and the last time she was in it she wasn't all that happy about it. This time she couldn't wait to get in! Keep your fingers crossed for us that she'll feel the same way in Yellowstone!
From there we did some shopping at Victoria Gardens and then went on a HUGE shopping spree at REI. I kid you not, Don and I are like kids in a candy store there! They gave my jogging stroller a lube and tune and I couldn't be happier! From there we bought something from every department... really, it was so bad. The best part was getting Brixie Lee sunglasses and a hat. Oh, and Crocs for $8!!! Love a good sale!
When we took off to Babies-R-Us she refused to take off the sunglasses and hat. She didn't want to get out of the car either (it had been 5 hours of shopping by then) and she feel asleep in her seat while Mommy was shopping. Poor thing was startled half to death when she woke up an hour later with her sunglasses on in our garage.
After a LONG nap from our big shopping day she wanted to play with her new hat and sunglasses again. Here are some cute pics of our little star!
