Christmas Road Trip

We made a road trip to California for Christmas to spend time with family. One of our little Princesses danced in a performance of the Nutcracker with the Long Beach Ballet. She was an angel – of course she was! And is!!

Electra enjoyed the performance. She watched nearly the whole thing. Explosions caught her attention and all the quick movements of the dancers had her mesmerized.

She was a real trooper on the road. A good traveller. Comfortable in the hotel.

We celebrated Electra’s birthday after the ballet performance with a visit to Frosted Cupcakery. Electra got some pupcakes! And a new penguin!

It was a good trip for Ms Electra. Lots of new exposures. She spent time with exuberant young girls, a snobby cat, toys EVERYWHERE that were not hers to play with, Christmas decorations. She spent some time in her crate observing and learning patience. She handled it all like a champ!

Road Tripping – Part 1

Electra has become a road warrior. She has earned a gold medal for sure! We went on a week long road trip from Texas – through Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and into North Carolina. The return trip took us through Tennessee and Arkansas.

The trip involved LONG hours in the car, nights in motels and with family, and lots of sight seeing. Electra was a real trooper. In and out of the car. In and out of her jacket. In and out of public restrooms. In and out of all sorts of new places.


We spent a night with family in the mountains of North Carolina and got a tour of the golf course. Our Saucy Sister cousin and her hubby were quite gracious hosts. And provided Electra with her 1st CAT and CART experiences! Whew!
