Scoot ya boot!

We have a scooter. 


It's name is Scootie but it will also answer to Scoots and Cutie Scootie. This is the closest thing we have to a pet. 

Scratch that. 

It's the closest thing we have to a child. That's how much we love our little Scoots. 

And now that Scootie's looooong winter's nap is finally coming to an end, you'll probably be seeing much more on this blog about the adventures of Sam & Chas & Scootie. 

Because we are excellent parents, we took Scootie to the doctor for a well child check-up. And that's when we discovered...






...scooter heaven. 
After much searching, we finally found a scooter shop that specializes in rill dill scooters like Buddy, Stella, and Kymco! Finally. If you know anything about scooters, you know that the world is getting overrun with super cheap, poorly-made Chinese scooters. Stumbling upon the SL Scooter Company was a tender mercy. Not only do they sell nice, dependable brands of scooters, they apparently also do a lot of restoration work on vintage bikes. 

How amazing is that blue Stella with the side car?!
And that pink one with the skulls and cross bones seat? Probably Avril Lavigne's scooter. Probably.

I want a scooter SO bad. However, it is winter here approximately 9 months out of the year so he thinks it's not worth it. It is. For a pink scooter? Um, yeah. It so is.
