12 hours in the car with a toddler isn’t so bad. Maybe it’s just my amazing trooper of a kid but I’m tempted to even say that the drive from Portland to the Bay Area was fun. I realize that sounds crazy but crayons, knitting and books on CD go a long way- 600 miles even.
Here are some highlights from our Easter and Grandparent extravaganza:
1. We were able to find a happy vegetarian, organic breakfast place when we stopped in Medford, OR on our drive down. I never would have guessed. (Of course, Sesame mostly just ate butter.)
A few eggs were smushed in the process and she did taste the dye but we managed to get a bunch of pretty eggs at the end.
She sure spent a lot of time admiring her pretty eggs!
Okay, the cake was for dessert, not dinner, but it was the highlight. Thanks to Grandma, Sesame got her first taste of cake batter and loved it, of course.
5. We met my mom at Traintown and waded through a sea of a thousand excited toddlers. Here are the 2 grandmas together on the train. The best part was the petting zoo but we were too busy feeding the animals to take any pictures.
Sesame got smart this time and didn’t let the basket hold her back. She set down her basket in a central location and then ran back and forth from egg to basket. Yes, I did make her dress. It’s the same pattern as this one and I’ll share some better pictures another time.
Mike was the successful chicken wrangler.
You know you’re in Napa when the chickens have wine boxes to lay their eggs in.
It was cool to see adult versions of some of the same breeds that we have. I can’t wait for ours to grow up!
It was a fun trip and now we’re tired.
