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!

Happy Birthday One-Year Old!

Hi! I had a most pawesome first barkday and I so wanna woof about it! It all started with a great romp in the muck - woo hoo!

We had to put on HATS that we were not so WILD about, but because of the yumzers ice cream and cool huge doggeh cookie, it was okay!!! Here's a li'l slideshow of my pawesome day!

We wants to say huge thank yous to Sierra Rose's Mom for sending over some of her super photos that I used in the slideshow. I had a most wonderful day and wanna wish my awesome siblings, Ronan, Thistle, Jamie, Levi and Chelsea a Happy First Barkday!

Happy First Birthday to you, Avalon!!! What a pawesome party you had! We thought you all looked cute in your party hats, and for that yummy ice cream we bet the hats weren't too hard to wear. Ciara is very envious of your fun in the muck - she wants to come live with you now.

Oh happy first birthday, Avalon, you sweet pretty girl! Wow, that was one big field of muck--I bet you all got some badly needed baths after that. But you had a piggy hat on, so it makes sense that you liked playing in the muck. Now that the weather is improving, let's all get together soon!

YD, sometimes with ♥Samantha and ♥June said...

Already? Wow! Happy Barkday Avalon!!!
