A fancy playgym just for me!

So we began our final day around 8 A.M. We had some delicious breakfast and got on the road. "We're going on a road trip!," our song for the trip. Grandpa wanted to get an early start, 'cause he wanted to show us the bbq place, Black Bart's Steakhouse, that he got dinner from the night before. Mama said it was sooo yummy. Of course she got her favorite, bbq shrimp. Grandpa said it was a hoppin' joint. As we were driving along, we saw some really big, tall pine trees. I don't think we're in California yet! They have palm trees there, for us tropical babies. Hehe! Then we entered into the Kaibab National Forest, where they had lots of Black-Eyed Susans, which Mama said reminded her of home in Maryland. She said it's the state flower.

What was really neat was when we passed Seligman, Arizona, Mom saw an "S" on the side of the mountain for their hometown. Wow, we should do that in LA! Oops! They already have that there, Hollywood! The trees in Seligman look like yummy gum drops. Mom loves all that gummi stuff. Then we drove through Mojave County. As we were entering Kingman, we got caught in a lightning storm. It was a little scary, but we knew Grandpa would keep us safe. We drove over The Holy Moses Wash. Mama just got tickled and loved that. She said she needed a wash!

We crossed over Walnut Creek, and it didn't have a lot of water running through it. Hmm, that's when you know you're in the desert. Went through Yucca and it was so beautiful, it was like a postcard. Then we went over another wash, Buck Mountain. Lotta washin' goin' on around here! Passed through the Havasu Wildlife Refuge and then crossed over the Colorado River and into another one of our home states', California. So it's 104 degrees here! Little hot! We were going through inspection, and we had to get rid of our grapes. Drat! Then they started questioning Mama and Grandpa about us. Little do they know how fabulous we are! Mama loves them grapes. We felt bad she had to get rid of them but we had to in order to get to our other home, The Pink Palace West.

We started going through The California Desert Conservation Area, the Mojave Desert. So cool and so beautiful. We passed a really neat truck that was painted like the American Flag. Love that American pride! Then we passed the Mojave National Preserve and Mitchell Caverns. By this time we needed gas, and no, we did not stop at a Shell station, we stopped at 76. It was the only thing around, and Mama said we were gonna start running on fumes pretty soon. We all went potty and got some lunch at none other than the Dairy Queen. Us babies, had our usual snacks, fruits, nuts, pellets, millet, and our favorite, Nutriberries. Got our gas and we were on our way! Went through Barstow and said goodbye to I-40 and jumped on I-15. Went through Hesperia, and Snuggles started to get antsy. She settled back down. Then we went through the San Bernardino National Forest.

We got on the Interstate 10 and headed towards LA. Almost to our home! Passed through Ontario and Long Beach and got on highway 101. Finally, Los Angeles! So that's what those palm trees look like! Of course, we've heard LA has a lot of traffic and what more welcoming than being in traffic on a Friday afternoon. Got on the infamous Sunset Boulevard and made some turns and headed into the our driveway at The Pink Palace West. WOW! Our new homes are amazing, and so are our play stands. In fact, they have relatives carved into the base. Mama says we gotta have some snacks and get back on our routine. If you ever get a chance to go on a road trip, fly to the chance to do it. It's so nice to be able to spend time with the people and the babies who really love and care about you. We are so excited and really lucky to have such a great Mama and Grandpa. The trip was amazing, hilarious, and such a blast. "We're going on a road trip!"

OK, my birds got to see how your birds live and they want to move into your place. The playstand that your cockatoo has is beautiful. Zeus says that it's more properly suited to an Umbrella Cockatoo. No really!
