Last time we were in Arizona a friend who heard I appreciate a good espresso whisked me to Cartel Coffee Lab and I was smitten.  It is super funky shop with a great vibe and even better coffee.  On our last trip I had to make a pit stop before leaving town so I went in and tried to pass for cool (hey, I wore my skinny jeans right?). But soon my kids were running around the joint completely cramping my style. Luckily everyone was so forgiving ; who knew the post-modern-apple-computer-toting-funky-punk crowd like to sing songs with little kids!  A little ditty about a Hippo was very popular while I waited for my coffee. I love when folks are kind to my kids. And I love that even more when I am sipping on a fabulous iced mocha.

    Astute observation Rox. I find your generation to be very nice to kids. The even younger generation is extremely nice to kids and engaging. Soon the garden variety curmudgeon will be a thing of the past. Sniff, sniff. I knew too many of those. Hippie-on mama.

    This totally reminded me of the opening scene of Up All Night from just the other day, only with a happier ending (Christina Applegate's character slips with her espresso on the way out while trying to pull off the hipster mama thing). Worth a laugh if you can find it. Love all your posts and your pictures, your girls are perhaps the cutest and spunkiest I've ever seen.
