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!

Red Bandana Photo Phollies...

Me: Get over here, squirt. It's time to pose. Mom's got food.
(Avalon: But I'm busy eating this new thing around my neck...)

By now, I'm sure you all know that The Porties are hosting "Bandana Day" on Thursday. Mom was incredibly late in sending our attempts at "wearing-red" photos to wilcoxhall@ymail.com. If you'd like to join in the merriment, hurry! Have your hoomans take a photo of you wearing red - it doesn't have to be a bandana, but you only have today and tomorrow to email those pics! I had a tough time making my sis try to get it together - she ruined my photoshoot totally. I am a mess - so not my usual perky look!

When she sat, I was looking away.

When I was focused on a mis-tossed cheerio, she had this weird look on her face. What's a good, big sister like me to do? She needs obedience, that's fur shore!
(Another note from Ma: sorry we haven't visited much lately - it's been a little chaotic around here, but we'll be back more regularly in a few weeks.)
