Sunday in the park

In an effort to catch upbefore the year ends I an going backwards with some of my posts
As you can see this was not taken recently but back in October when the weather was warmer.

We spotted this red squirrel hanging out

"This is as close as I get to her"
" Alright if you say so I'll try"
" Oh boy what you see down there?"
"Okay, okay no more!"

A walk in the woods

I'm not even sure when these were taken but no leaves underfoot means a few weeks back
We went up to Arrowhead park as they have done a lot of improvements to the trails
The boy scouts built a couple new bridges
The rock walls on this trail are home for so many creatures Luna went absolutely crazy.....she is a typical terrier & will chase anything with four legs
Molly hurt her leg jumping over one of the creek beds so Jessie tried to carry her.....that did not last long & we managed to coax her into walking back.  The dog is such a baby๐Ÿ˜

Life when you are "dog people"

Since Jessie moved in at 5:00pm most evenings you can find us at the dog park.  That is the time when all the "regulars" go.  You don't remember most human's names but you always know the dogs๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
 This puppy was a little intimidated by all the dogs.....
......... but she found a protector!

 This is Jessie doing what she loves best!
 Spartan loves her
 Luna is one of the smaller dogs there but she rules!
 Always in the middle of the pack
 This is what they do when they see a new dog coming

Hiking in Saratoga Historical Park

One sunday in october we met Mark & Dani at the saratoga historical park
This is our motley crew setting out......notice we are mostly wearing jackets but it wasn't long before we took them off

LiLi had brought along a friend.....hard to believe they are the same age but it shows what a pipsqueak she is๐Ÿ˜œ

When we got this far Jessie decided to let Luna off leash She was good for about 5 mins & then her terrier instincts took over.

This is where she just started runningbut she did listen & Jess caught steps!
Somewhere around this point a certain someone, whom I will not name but, that someone is not in the picture, discovered they had lost their glasses. While the rest of them kept going Popster & I walked the same quarter mile section of the trail four times before they were found๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ˜Œ.  At this point we ended up walking back to the top of the hill & waiting for them.

Chickens, dogs & stick bugs

The day after the wedding we went over to Scott & Deidre's before Josh & Carol had to head back to the city
 He has the footings all marked out for the house.  Update: Since then the footings have been poured, the basement & garage floors are done & they start framing this week

They are trying to teach the chickens to go to bed but they weren't getting it!
One of them escaped & Scott told Carol to just pick it up.  In her cute accent she said "Oh no! In the city I no see chickens!  I no touch the chickens!" He managed to convince her they wouldn't bite.

Obsessive dogs waiting for someone to throw the ball
