It was really beautiful and sunny today, and the water was so clear and rippling beautifully near the shore!
We have a break from the rain, which means colder weather, but also some sun! We took advantage and took Penelope to Lake Padden for walkies, and on some of the off leash trails we got some amazing vistas of light coming through the trees. But of course, the most important part was Penelope posing! … Continue reading “Late fall at Lake Padden”
We live next to a park locally known as the Hundred Acre Wood, and we love to go walking through it, and I felt like posting some random photos from this lovely spring walk today!
We love going for our traditional Christmas day hike, and this year we found a lovely trail called Horseshoe Bend, near Mt Baker along the Nooksack River (by the way, did we mention that we moved to Bellingham, WA this year? So yeah, we’re close to Mt. Baker now). It was a really lovely hike … Continue reading “Christmas day hike 2017”
Penelope turned one year old today! So, to celebrate, here are a bunch of pictures of her over the past year. She has been an amazing puppy: easy to train, eager to please, incredibly affectionate and sweet, and (as you can see in the pictures) perpetually happy. We are very lucky to have her!
This year, for our Christmas Day hike, we wanted to find some snow. There is a ton of snow in the mountains right now, but 7 feet seemed like a bit much, so we wanted something a little easier to walk through. We went to the John Wayne Trail at Rattlesnake Lake. It was perfect … Continue reading “Christmas Hike”
As always happens around this time, Santa appears with his bag of goodies! He looks around at all the arguing and bickering and fighting people, and decides that they have all failed the nice/naughty test, and he is rather bored of them all (he was of course watching the whole time) and so he decides … Continue reading “Day 24 – Santa sleighs all”
Well, apparently in all his fiddling, the yuppie managed to summon a miniature space shuttle, which sat next to, but not touching, the rockets! That made the rockets make sense, but still, there was no way to attach them… Also, it only barely makes sense, but who are we to question the magic of the … Continue reading “Day 23 – what on Earth?”
While the yuppie is fiddling with his silly magical cronut and feeling awfully smug, he somehow makes what appears to be a rocket pack appear right next to the fire! As he moves closer to inspect his apparent handiwork, he sees that there doesn’t appear to be a method to strap the rocket pack onto … Continue reading “Day 22 – love and…rockets?”
As things are starting to come to a head, suddenly the yuppie springs into action, leaping off his plane and using his magic cronut he turns the other two youths’ magic pastries into marshmallows and creates a little camp fire between the combatants. It seems like there is little left to do except maybe roast … Continue reading “Day 21 – the smell of roasting..”
