After a day hanging out at home and mom staying up way too late, Koko and mom decided to visit Auntie Marlene and Uncle Gary and cousin Angela in Maple Ridge. Just last week Eli and the whole family visited them but they are so awesome and mom loves driving that it made perfect sense to go again.
Here we are about to leave the driveway. Mom let Koko sit in the front seat, like a big kid, er, tiger.
We made our usual stop at Costco in Kamloops. Mom treated the Prius to a really full tank tummy for the ride over the snowy mountains. Premium gas too!!
Mom lost $70 when it fell out of her pocket and Koko was sad, but mom said it probably went to someone who needs it more than she did. That’s just the way life goes.
Koko had his very first driving lesson, just like Kiki did last summer! Mom took him out to the Coquihalla highway and let him steer. She started him out slow, below the speed limit.
Soon enough we were up to ludicrous speed and blasting lots of new music mom has gotten into recently. You know, Artists like Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Lily Allen, Dragonette and Kongos. Mom danced in her seat and sang so loud it hurt Koko’s ears.
We saw a really unusual rainbow up in the mountains. It wasn’t raining and was not a full arc. Mom and Kiki thought it may just be space aliens and didn’t stop to investigate further, just in case they were of the bum-probing variety.
