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!

Amazing Road Trip - Part II

We have arrived! And check out the gorgeous pups that greet me!!! Joey and Kealani!!! I am so happy to meet them. They show me around the very pawsome place here and then...

LOOK WHO ARRIVES!!!!

Paco, Milo and Maya's wonderful Mama and Papa!!! They never stop giving us doggies pats and rubbies all week! We all adore Simona and Marco. They are too generous and bring us the most thoughtful, amazing gifts. LOOK at my Dad's tie. It has my fave picture of me on it repeated again and again. Mom receives a wonderful t-shirt with pix of Milo, Paco and Maya on the back and of me on the front!!! Mom is still wearing this shirt as she types!

Here are some links to photos of all the fun we had for the next couple of days. Hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by for Part I. So many bloggie pals have spent time in lots of the places we visited - wish you were closer to the Bay Area!!!
