Yes, I know, I am crazy...

So I heard through the grapevine that Lazytown was doing a live tour here in the good old USA. For those of you who don't have toddlers, Lazytown is a show on Nick Jr, with the superhero Sporticus and a little girl, Stephanie, and all their adventures in a weirdly shaped world of blue screen puppets. It's actually better then it sounds, LOL! See Lazytown here

I have to think to myself, how often are the actual actors from a show filmed in Iceland going to be live and in person a few miles away from the Grandparents house? Not very often I reason to myself!

What do I do?? Call Grandma, get the whole family on board to go, and get them to buy the park tickets, LOL! All I have to do is get my train ticket to the Bay Area.

And to that end, my parents had a really, really bad experience on their last Amtrak trip, just about 3 weeks ago. So I "offer" to call to make a complaint on their behalf, which my mom was planning on doing anyways but just hasn't had the time to. Mom, knowing my capacity for getting what I want, says sure! And if they offer a refund or anything, she says, I can use it to get up there...

20 minutes later I am off the phone with Amtrak, and there are $300 in free travel certificates in the mail!!! WHOOHOO!! But the bad news is, they probably won't get her in time for my trip next weekend, so I am off to ebay anything not nailed down. Anyone need anything and willing to paypal for it, let me know!! I need $84 for our tickets....

So, it looks like next weekend Danielle gets to meet Sporticus and Stephanie, and we get to spend a nice day at Great America with my family. Oh, and did I mention, I will be 24 weeks pregnant ;) I will take pictures of my ankles at the end of the day, LOL!!
