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!

After a Tough Day with...

...Barbara at obedience, Sierra and I needed to do some serious hangin' at the Country Club.

On the way there, we slept after slaking our thirst with copious amounts of water. Jumping and chasing after things we don't have a fondness for definitely tires us out. Madame Chauffeur, more water back here!

I curled my big bod up into a tiny ball on this little seat, while Sierra tried to
find a good place to chill.

Oh yeah... Avalon came along too. She has her own personal fan - pffffff. After a nice swim and our own cool version of a round of golf, we hung out in the lounge... er... on one of the lounges.

Ha Cha Cha! Hey, Waiter - over here! Two orders of Bully sticks with sides of water and plenty of ice cubes, please!

Hey! Where'd everybuddy go? Where's da Sis?

( From Mom: Bafana Bafana! Congrats on the great game yesterday - and the opening ceremonies were magnaminously awesome - looking forward to more "football"!!! - Slowly, slowly, we will begin catching up - apologies for our lack of commenting lately...)

Woooooo! That Avalon is going to be a handful! I'm glad you're showing her the ropes, Sammie!

I love that you have your own cabana boy!


Martha and Bailey said...

Oh my goodness, Avalon is an adorable bundle - full of energy!
You girls sure know how to have fun - the country club indeed.
Avalon has her own fan and travelling compartment!
Puppies these days are just ruined!
Loved the pics and especially the video.
love and kisses

Avalon, we don't think you are supposed to chew that - isn't that your travel crate? But we must also say you are lucky to have that cool fan on your crate, we need one of those for ours too.

So, Sammie and Sierra - did the waiter ever deliver your order?

Talk about a couple of world class athletes. You and Sierra are 'buff' dogs!

Little Avalon - well, what can one say about a puppy that doesn't lead to cooing and drooling!

Fun to see your side of the nice day you had with Sierra Rose. You guys look like you had a great time. Little Avalon is sure silly, but adorable too.

Haha...that Avalon is something else. Trying to puts up a tent all by herself! Well, I bet if she keeps at it, that tent will be up in no times!

And it looks like you had a Most Lovely day lounging at the Country Club.
