On the way back to Bob's parent's place, we stopped at the Bodie Ghost town. It was very cool. Bob thought it would be dumb and touristy. It is actually a California state park and pretty well off the beaten path. They don't let anybody take anything, so there is still loads of stuff there. We took way too many pictures.
When we got back, we had a few more days with Bob's family. We surprised Jaide with an early surprise birthday party. I made Jaide a sand bucket cake. It's like dirt cups, but with vanilla pudding and crushed graham crackers. I also found some octopus gummies and some gummy rocks. They were very brightly colored. Bob wouldn't let me get swedish fish. Bob's mom surprised us all by whipping up an adorable little quilt for Jaide's sock monkey doll.
One morning we visited some adorable goats that a friend of Bob's mom raises. Kiree was very leery of the goats (even the adorable tiny baby one!) but was slightly less so after they let her give the baby a bottle.
