A SLO Start

Saturday, 9 August 2008

Note to self–

Do not forget the following items next year:
1. Pack & Play (whoops!!)
2. Baby monitor
3. Poppyseed’s blue blankie
4. Poppyseed’s menagerie of stuffed animals
5. Water Bottles for the car

On the up side —

It was a really smart idea to bring blankets. The hotel didn’t have one for the crib and Peach was a little cold. And individual journals for the big kids was a stoke of genuis! It is interesting to see what is making an impression on them.

We drove as far as San Luis Obispo. It took longer than anticipated. Quite likely due to an unscheduled squabble stop. “A squabble stop?” you may wonder. Somewhere north of Thousand Oaks there was a yelp from the way back. Beernut was really tired and had put down his head on Poppyseed’s toy box. And she was less than gracious.

I have a no fighting rule in the car. I just can’t concentrate on the road with two screaming kids in the back. So we pulled over so that I could reaarange the seating.

With a bathroom stop in Summerland and then a dinner stop in Santa Maria, we rolled into SLO after 8:00pm. Too late for the kids’ program. Too late for the manager’s reception. And too late for the pool.

Tomorrow IS another day!

    You must REALLY live close to us. Don’t worry, I’m not stalking you. I’m just curious since my niece and your daughter are at the same camp. AND, my dad lives near T.O. Have you ever stopped at Pizza Nosh there ? THE BESTEST KOSHER PIZZA EVER.

    TamaraEden — we are a bit further south. Never been to Pizza Nosh but always seeking the perfect pie!

    Jack — we used to have a Big Yellow House in our neck of the woods. Hadn’t thought about that place in years..

    Phyl — crib is in the gan BUT they had an extra one so it’s all good. And duct tape has been a life-saver!!!
