- Record shopping (unsuccessful)
We drove down on Thursday afternoon. Cordelia slept the entire way. It was like a tiny miracle. When she woke up as we were getting into town she was laughing...not sure what she was laughing at. We got to our hotel room and called it a night; we're new parents we get to do that you know.
Friday morning Eric was at the school and I visited my friends and co-workers from a previous job. I mostly just showed off my little lady, didn't get much opportunity to visit as it was rushed, but it was nice to see the old gang.
Friday afternoon we visited a college friend, Petra. She made us a delicious lunch. She has this great ability to make wonderful meals from simple ingredients, YUM! We caught up, played with Cordelia and walked to the nearby record shop.
I should mention that Bumblebee came with us, but she spent the day at her old dog daycare. When we finally picked her up she was beyond exhausted. She had played her little heart out.
Saturday morning we went shopping, buying things like seitan, vegan soaps and shampoos, tvp and other vegan goodies. I will say that I really miss vegan shopping in the city...it's more challenging in Wyoming.
Then Eric went off to a boat show to represent for the Coast Guard. Oh yes, I should probably mention that Eric joined the Coast Guard Auxiliary. It's the civilian branch of the Coast Guard. Yes, they are in WY. Eric joined to do search and rescue and patrols, but this day was all about teaching the youngsters.
When Eric was done with that we made one more stop at Whole Foods. Our hearts were the teaniest bit heavy when we were talking to the store clerks who were all vegan..we're a bit veg isolated here in WY. We ate a lovely lunch and headed home.
Cordelia drove...she's extremely advanced.
When we got back we unloaded and did laundry. Bumblebee passed out.
The cats missed us a little. We hope.
