First I want to say Congrats to my kitty Gizmo for making DDP today...way to go Giz!
Okay, now onto my weekend. Friday all us animals headed to the cabin with mom, grandma and Aunt Lois. It was a bit crowded in the back seat, but we survived. When we got there our friend Pat from NC was there and it was nice to see him cause it's been so long since the last time he was up. We pretty much hung out inside cause it was cold and windy when we got there and it got dark shortly afterwards too so no time to play:( Daddy came a little after we did so it was pretty crowded in the small cabin with 5 people, 2 dogs and a cat.
Saturday we went out and about for a bit. It was mom, grandma, Aunt Lois, Echo and I. Our first stop for the Old Home Foilage Days at the fairground and it was actually a pretty nice day. A little breezy, but that seemed to die down after a while and it got really nice. Of course everyone had to stop and pet us and tell us how beautiful we were. At first I love all the attention, but after awhile it gets kinda old and I get impatient and don't like to stand as long. But mom said we did really good considering all the people that stopped us. When we were done there we went to another place grandma likes to go, but we had to wait in the car. Mom wasn't long so when she was done she came back out to the car and let us out. We played tag in the field then sat and waited for grandma and Aunt Lois to come out. From there we went to Cheese Nook and that was the best stop yet and you wanna know why? Cause we got ice cream! Yes, it was chilly, but that doesn't mean I don't want ice cream and mom knows it. She said we were so good with everyone that we deserve it and she sat in the back hatch with us and held the bowls while we ate. I know she has a picture of that and she'll post it when she gets a chance. All I have to say is that it was yummy! When we got back Echo kept bugging for a kubota ride so mom finally took us. We couldn't go in the woods cause it is hunting season and the only days in the woods now are Sundays, but she drove us around the field and up and down the road. When she turned around in the field at this one place, branches were hanging down and flipped right in the back of the kubota where us dogs were. Echo bailed, but I just laid down and fortunately they didn't catch me. That was close! After dinner mom smoked a cigar, but it was still breezy and cold so we didn't stay out too long. When mom came out to smoke it, she was calling me, but I didn't come. Well, let me tell you, mom knows me very well. They had chicken for dinner on the grill and sometimes the juices will drip out of the pan onto the ground. Well you know me, I gotta check and when mom came around the corner she caught me red pawed with my head under the grill licking up the juice. She yelled at me, but in a teasing way and laughed when I looked at her like a kid caught with their hand in the cookie jar. It was kinda funny:)
Sunday we went for a ride with mom and dad for them to look at some antiques. Unfortunately we weren't allowed out of the car, but at least we got to go along for the ride. When we got back we took a Kubota ride with mom and grandma to the tree. It was really windy so we didn't get to stay in the woods long, but it was still fun to ride up and run back down. We left shortly after that and I was none too happy that I didn't get to ride home with mom. Since her and dad drove separately, but were going home at the same time, mom said only one of us could ride with her so there was more room for Aunt Lois. Since I'm the seat hog I had to ride with dad. I love daddy, but you all know I'm a mommy's girl so I like being with her. But it wasn't too bad cause I got to ride up front and have the entire seat to myself:) All in all it was a pretty good weekend, even if we didn't get to do tons of stuff cause it was colder.
This is going to be a busy week cause we have two Halloween visits this week. We don't normally do two in one week, but cause everyone likes to see us in costume we have to do it and I don't mind cause I know how happy it makes the residents:)
