After visiting I headed home to pick up my sister-in-law and my friend Val with her daughter Kaylee to head up to Sacramento to do some retail therapy! Now I am not one that likes to shop. Especially for myself. I don't even like to spend money - probably because I never have any. But if I am driving up to Sacramento to go shopping, I am not coming home empty handed. Of course, it's easier to buy things when it isn't for me - but for Emily instead. We went to Goore's which is a baby store up there. Val and I were emailed to let us they were having a clearance sale. We thought we shouldn't miss it - so off we went in hopes to find some really good deals.
The only clearance items they had were clothes. The "clearance" price for cute clothes ranged from $18 to $40. I think Val may have found something cheaper. I found a really cute outfit for Emily...but it was 50% off which meant $40. No thanks.
I did end up buying her some baby legs because I
Emily loves it. Amy and I got a kick out of it too when I tried to do the above leap with the ribbon. Not pretty....but
After Goore's we headed to lunch at the Sacramento Brewery. Lunch was soooooo good! Emily wanted NOTHING to do with the avacado I tried feeding her. She, of course, realized it wasn't pureed and hated it. I then tried to give her water through a straw and she wasn't havin' it either. This girl drinks water every single day (yes...I know there are some people who will call me a bad mom for giving my daughter water every day) but usually from a sippy cup. Since this WASN'T from a sippy cup, she didn't know what to think...but I think the face says it all:
After lunch we headed home, dropped Val and Kaylee off and then came home to feed, bathe, and put the munchkin to bed.
It's now about 9pm and I just got a phone call from my husband to tell me he was going out on a strike team tomorrow morning. They almost sent them tonight but it will be tomorrow morning instead. He is going to the fire in Yosemite. The fire has burned 19,000 acres since Friday and has claimed 8 homes. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE keep him in your prayers! I hate when he has to go and I can't help but worry. I know he's trained and he'll be safe but when you hear of two LODDs (line of duty death) in the past few days...it's scary! So any extra prayers would be awesome!
At any rate...time to hit the hay! I have another full day ahead of me tomorrow!
