Road Trip Days 3 & 4

Happy Friday everyone. Well, I’m back to tell you more about my adventures in Wisconsin with Mom. We finally got to meet @Mariodacat & his M & D. M picked us up and we went shopping for Packer souvenirs and then went to M & D’s daughter’s house to take care of her kitties. So I got to meet them too! I have to admit I forgot the kitties names. I thought Mom took pics of them, but we can’t find them, so I can’t show them to you. *embarrassed* Then we went back to M & D’s house to relax and they made dinner for us. After dinner, Mom and I went back to the hotel so we could watch the Broncos game. They won!

If you mouse over the pictures you can see the captions. You can biggify the pictures by clicking on them.

Day 4 was a boat ride on the Fox River. Mom couldn’t stop taking pictures! Here’s about half of them. I didn’t caption all of them. Hope you like them!

After the boat ride we drove through the city so I could see more of it. Then we went back to M & D’s house for dinner. Of course, that meant more picture taking, especially of Mario!

Make sure to come back tomorrow for day 5. We went to Lambeau Field! Boy was that exciting!

Road Trip Days 1 & 2

Happy Thursday everyone! I usually post just on Sundays, but as most of you know, Mom and Lippe Jr took a road trip to visit @Mariodacat and his M & D. They were on the road for 8 whole days! There’s lots of pictures to share so I’m gonna spread this out over a few days. I’m also gonna let the pictures do most of the talking. So here are the first two days of the trip.

We had great weather for the drive (and most of the trip). Driving through Nebraska wasn’t as boring as I’d heard. The part of Iowa we drove through was all hilly and farms. It was beautiful. And the drive through Wisconsin was gorgeous too! I thought I’d be bored spending two days in the car, but I really enjoyed seeing all these places I’d never seen before. The only really boring part of the drive was Northeastern Colorado. I can’t believe I was in 4 different states in 2 days!

That’s it for today’s installment. Part two tomorrow.

Third Gotcha Day News and Giveaway

Happy Sunday everyone! First, I want to thank everyone for their paw prayers for Mom’s back. She’s feeling much better now, but still has to watch her computer time.There’s something about her chair or the table height that makes her sit funny and makes her back hurt. She’s working on a more ergonomic setup, but in the meantime, I’ll be using her tablet more for twitter. I type very slowly on the tablet, so you’ll have to bear with me.

Now to the good stuff! As you know, this past Wednesday was my third Gotcha Day. Since that was a workday and last Sunday the weather was so purrfect, we went to Eldorado Canyon State Park. There’s a wheelchair path there that Mom thought would be good for the stroller. It has a great view of the canyon. Aside from pawsome scenery, we saw lots of people rock-climbing. That looked kind of fun, so when we went to the picnic area for brunch I decided to do some rock-climbing, too.

We were down by the creek edge and there were tons of nice crunchy leaves to play with. I didn’t realize the I was so close to the water because of all the leaves. I was just playing with them and having so much fun I stepped right in the water and got my paws wet! I backed out really quick and was trying to shake the water off my paws. Mom just stood there laughing and laughing at me! *shakes head* So here are the pictures from my trip.

Now for the part you’ve all been waiting for – the Tillman Skateboard Deck Giveaway! I won this cool skateboard deck from the pawsome people at Natural Balance at the last Blogpaws. Just follow the Rafflecopter instructions. There are steps to get more than one entry. You don’t have to do all the steps, but you do have to do the steps you say you’re doing. No cheating!
