Today we trekked to Sonora in California's Gold Country to sample the shining, glittering examples of LUSCIOUS CANDY. (We'll cover the Gold Rush later.)
Here's Aidyn and his grandma practically dying because I made them take a picture before busting through the doors to candy heaven.
But as it turned out, Aidyn walked past all the candy and headed straight for a little toy section at the back of the store and found a huge whoopie cushion.
Eventually my there-ain't-no-way-I'm-buying-a-12-dollar-whoopie-cushion face led him to choose a more reasonably priced (and insanely adorable) stuffed lemur.
Here he is strolling with his new lemur in a neat educational supply store we found down the way from The Candy Vault.
A goofy hat he just had to try on.
We left the Gold Country making out like bandits.
