Today we loaded up the kids in the car, early enough to get to our destination and eat lunch before we surprised the kids with a huge surprise! Jamie drove both ways today, so I had about 4 hours of knitting time in the car. I worked on Baby 3's Baby Shell, which I started last night. Making great progress today - will show you tomorrow. This really is a super fast knit.


The boys were great in the car for the 2 hour drive. Mack seriously concentrated on the movie they were watching (Toy Story) and making his little pucker face. I love it.


We got into Ottawa with plenty of time to stop for a sit down lunch. I wasn't interested in having any crap fast food for lunch, which is why we planned accordingly.


The boys were super excited to have gotten their drinks in a very cool baseball cup.


Then we arrived at our destination.
They even handed everyone out glasses just like Dj Lance's.


The Yo Gabba Gabba Live Show!


We were excited to see that Biz Markie was part of the show too! We weren't sure if he'd be there in person. He's pretty funny.

To sum it all up: Yo Gabba Gabba Tickets for 4 People: $201.44. Lunch after a 2 hour drive: $44.00. Stuffed animals at the venue: $45. Food at intermission: $15.75. The looks on both Sean & Mackenzie's faces when Yo Gabba Gabba live came out on stage: PRICELESS.

Today's Random Thoughts:
- I did find a dress for the wedding I have in October. I think I would have much preferred this one, ankle length and less busy, but I can't seem to find it in Canada, Old Navy's Canadian website won't ship to Canada, and the closest US Old Navy to me, doesn't have maternity. At least the one I got was 30% off, and came to under 20$. I really didn't want to have to buy a dress for one time, especially since this is my last pregnancy, but for under 20$, I'm not going to complain.
- One of my blog readers suggested I get Knit Two on Audio book with my credit. Hmm, didn't think of that. Too bad reading the review of it, ruined the ending of the first book, which I still have about a third of it left to listen to. The reviews though were either "loved it" or "was extremely disappointed". Hmmm. Wondering - do I take the chance and get it - since it's free? And it seems like everything else people are recommending I either have the book or have read it already? Not sure what to do. Has anyone else read Knit Two? Any good?
- I got the energy to bake when I got home so I made some Zucchini bread with a huge zucchini Jamie got from the garden recently. I added in some chocolate chips and it came out delicious!
