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!

Ball Badinage - Blog Hop Edition

As usual, our secretary is so lame that she can't figure out codes and linky tools, but wants to greet some new and old pals alike through today's Pet Blogger Hop! Happy Jumping!

What Avalon had was really what I wanted to possess. So I went for it.

After working on her for a minute or so....

Sammie - I think that you and your little sister are become best friends. It's so wonderful to see you playing together. It's amazing how fast puppies grow up - Avalon is the perfect example! My goodness, she was tiny just a little while ago!

We have that same ball... It's a great one, isn't it!

Have a great weekend playing together, you two beautiful Goldens!
