On Sunday we took a drive up to Julian to have a day of fun in the snow. I think I pictured it in my head going a little differently. I thought K would for sure nap, at least a little on the drive up...it took us almost 2 hours, and we left right around her normal nap time. I was wrong.
Once we arrived, we knew parking would be horrendous. We drove right past the famous "Julian Pie Co." store... only to find they were CLOSED due to snow. Um...what?! How is every other place in this small town open the day after the snow storm, but not them?? Lame.
So we let her pick it up & throw it around...we looked at other people's awesome snow mans and snow seal...yes, 'seal'...how amazing is that?!
It was so cute watching her try to navigate through the snow, in her little pink boots & big puffy jacket. I actually got really warm, and had to take off my scarf & unzip my snow jacket...crazy. Maybe next year we'll have more fun - note to self, invest in a few cheap-o, plastic sled discs - she'll love that!
Then we stopped in Santa Ysabel (just outside of Julian on the way home)...to see if the 2nd Julian Pie location was open. Sure enough they were, so I ran inside, got in the little line...only to discover a sign sitting on the counter that read "Sold Out". Fanfreakintastic. So then I jumped back in the car, we crossed over the parking lot to go to Dudley's Bakery for some amazing bread, jumped out again - and what do ya know, OUT. I'm obsessed with their rosemary bread & parmesan bread, and I only get to indulge maybe once a year if we're up there...but, it was all gone. No bread for you. Of course all of these things I can order online, but it's really just NOT the same. Better luck next time.....hopefully.
