Upon getting on the bus and finding a seat, Ben thought he heard Veronica make a request of the bus driver. Ya see, every time she gets in the car she'll ask for more songs...which is what she asked of the bus driver.
They got to the main station and Veronica was a bit sad, because she had to get off of the bus. She kept saying, "More Bus!"
She quickly got over the bus ride when daddy took her to one of our favorite spots for hot chocolate, Avellino's. **sidenote: if you've never had hot chocolate here you truly must go, because they use bittersweet & white chocolate and put it in the milk, then steam.** She has never had hot chocolate before, but she soon understood the goodness that the Aztecs beheld. She quickly changed her mind and decided that she didn't want to go back to the bus, but stay and drink more hot chocolate.
After finishing her treat, they made their way back to the station where she anxiously waited for her ride home.
She wants to make sure she had the prime spot on the bus. I'm sure someone was sitting in this seat, but they saw a cute girl in a bee hat who must sit here instead. She has quite the appeal.
No bus ride would be complete without the complimentary map, which she was very proud of when she came home.
To make the trip complete, daddy & little stopped by the creek to throw a couple pinecones in for good measure.
I would say the trip was a success all in all. Who knew that for a $1.25 you could get so much joy in life.
