Our Journey...

Think we forgot to tell you a lil bit about what sort of vacay we're on! Last September of 2011, Dad retired. He and momzers got an RV and decided to plan a trip across the country, visiting national parks on the way to Maine (where's that?) for a family reunion. That's a long trip from northern California! Anyway, this blog is now a record of our travels across the good ole U.S. of A. and even Canada - plus all the things we get to do and see! We started our journey mid-March and hope to be back in NoCal by mid-October - yeah!

Ahhhhh Tahoe - Day One

Benefit for Humane Society Truckee-Tahoe & Squaw Rescue Dogs

Checkin' things out - wow, I love this place!

View from the village - Squaw, that is!

They had a "splash dogs"- sort of - a lake dive off a really weird platform. Most of us doggers wanted to take a detour hehee!

Here's a new pal I met named Jackson.

And we met Sierra Rose later, along with some other doggies. Goldens are really rare up here hahahahahah!

Lunchtime for hoomans, though you'd never know it!
