Nap Time

Good morning,

Sometimes you play so hard you just have to take a little nap.

That's our sweet little Wendy, now age 12 weeks, in her play area we have in our sitting room.  We spend a great deal of time in this room where we have our computers and TV so, of course, Wendy likes to be near us.

To keep her from chewing on wires or other things that wouldn't be good for her or happy for us, we set up this play area for her.  She can be nearby and we know she is safe.  Win, win!

All the best,

Mud Puddles

Good morning,

Have you noticed that puppies and children are just the same when it comes to mud puddles?

Returning to Ohio

Good morning,

I took these shots as we returned to Ohio from our road trip through Kentucky.
Seeing Cincinnati in the valley below always brings good feelings of home.
We are crossing the I75 Brent Spence Bridge...
...across the Mighty Ohio River.
We'll be home again soon. 

Our next scheduled road trip will be in October to go South to Port Canaveral in a few weeks.

 All the best,

Kentucky Barns

Good morning,

Today's images of well used barns were taken in Kentucky last Fall.
What beautiful country side in the Blue Grass State.

So pretty!

Rolling Hills of Kentucky and Passing the Kentucky Horse Park

Good morning,

What beautiful weather in the rolling hills of the Blue Grass State.
I took these shots as we were passing the Kentucky Horse Park near Lexington, Kentucky.
Beautiful white fences...
...line these fields where beautiful horses graze.
On this particular trip we didn't see horses outside.

It has been several years since we visited the park.  We'll have to get back here again soon.

All the best,

North Carolina Mountains in the Fall

Good morning,

I'm going through some images from last Fall and found these that I haven't yet shared with you.
We love road trips especially through the mountains.
We'll be heading back to Florida in a few weeks and will drive through these mountains to get there.

We are looking forward to all of the Fall colors and the cool, crisp air.

My Patio Chair

Good morning,

Hi!  I'm Wendy. 
I'm twelve weeks old now and surely old enough to write my own blog post.
You'll notice how comfy I am in this patio chair.
My Mom came out and wiped the rain off of it after the rain.  I'm sure she did it for me so I got up here.
I fit just fine and can take a nap here.
I have to be careful when I stretch, though.
What do you mean you wiped this chair off for yourself?
It's mine now.
Is that someone coming in the gate?
 Nah, nothing important.  Back to sleep.....

Mom loves to take my picture.  She tells me it is important to get lots of them.  She misses lots of sleep by taking so many pictures.
