Saddle Up The Cats!

Last week was spring break for my daughter, so she had no school for a full week.

The joys of youth.

She wanted to know if I could take the week off of work as well.  I couldn’t oblige her with the whole week, but I managed to get Monday and Friday off.

Monday we got into Azeroth and were determined to make the climb to level 30.  Okay, we were already level 29, so there wasn’t that big of a climb ahead of us, but keeping a 7 year old focused can be a chore of its own at times.

We headed off to Duskwood where we still had a pile of quests left to clean up.  Up in the Raven Hill Cemetery first she then I hit level 30 then I did.

She showed he readiness for pick-up groups when she hit 30 first and wanted to stop questing right that second.  I had to convince her that the right thing to do was stick around until I hit 30 as well.  We’re still working on manners at our house.

Once we were both level 30 we made our way to Darnassus to train our skills, including the most important one.

Then we had to buy the actual mounts.

My daughter decided that since there were three different basic saber cat mounts for night elves, we should all get a different one.  Later on we caught up with my mother near Southshore and we took a picture with the three of us and our new cats.

After that we did a few more quests then took a break.  My daughter launched KidPix and drew a picture of her new mount.

Now she wants to get back down to Thousand Needles, which we passed through the other day, and to the Mirage Raceway so she can see how fast she is compared to the goblin and gnome rocket racers.  I’m not sure a white tiger is MRIOC sanctioned however.

Now to start saving for those epic mounts.  Though at the rate we’re going, level 60 is a ways away.
