Daffy jumping!

Mom is always saying,
 "Wyatt don't sit on the flowers!"
"Wyatt don't walk on the flowers!"
Wyatt don't lay on the flowers!"
WYATT!!
Can I jump over the flowers?
Ha mom! You didn't say I couldn't do that!!
 
Happy Daffy Jumping!!

color me Wyatt!

Mom asked me the other day, "Wyatt which color do you like best?"
You can see I was inspired by RETRO GREEN.
I thought it looked good enough to eat.
I tried a little on my fur. Yes, I do like it a lot!
So, I helped my mom, give some of our garden accessories a new spring look!
This is the first coat...one more to go.
I should probably stop her now, before she paints the whole house this color...BOL!

Scavenger Hunt in the City!

How do you get people to come out of their warm cozy houses, when it is cold and rainy...
.....And put on bright blue tee shirts and run around the city in search of a clue?
 
In Portland, all it takes is the promise of winning a new car or a cruise to someplace warm!
100's of Portlanders, showed up in Pioneer Courthouse Square today, to play a high tech scavenger hunt with their phones, droids and i-pads.
First team to find the answers and text them back, WINS!
 
We did not come home with a new car...but here is we what we saw today.

Easter Bonnets!
 
and more Easter Bonnets!
Bronze Dog w/ bonnet
It's nice to see hats making a comeback!
Driftwood Horse
(actually bronze!)
 
A baby dog, trying to win a new car.
A little dog, trying to win a cruise to someplace warm!
Some cats should 'just say no' to catnip!
We learned some interesting facts about our town and were reminded that Portlanders are fun in any weather!!

(next time Wyatt and Stanzie are coming along!)

Caffeine, Scones and English Daisies

First stop on a Friday....the coffee drive up.
Latte for mom.
3 shot Cappuccino for dad
Dog cookie for me and Stanzie.
Is that a blueberry scone, I see?
Fueled up for gardening!
 
Planting English Daisies with mom :)
 
We did some walking today too. It's been cold and wet.
Despite the weather, we have 29 minutes left for Idita-Walk.
We may be the last dogs to finish, but I think we will make it!!
Looking forward to warmer days, fur sure.

Squirrel Casserole

Today, as I was helping my mom in the garden...
I had an idea!
Mom is trying to come up with some recipes, for Oskar's Cookbook over at Pet Blogs United.
I've been wanting to do away with that pesky squirrel....
"MOM, how do you think squirrel would go with shredded carrot and cheese?"
 
She did try out a new casserole for me....but with sliced potato and minus the squirrel.
Smells okay, but I liked my idea better.
 
Not a complete hit...
Stanzie and I, ate off the cottage cheese, corn and carrots, but were not crazy about the sliced potatoes. I think we would have preferred them mashed or better yet, with squirrel!!
 
Don't forget to send your recipes to Pam and Oskar over at PBU!!
Bone Appetit!

European Spring Break with Wyatt and Stanzie!!

It's Spring Break, Stanzie!
Let's borrow grandma's Javelin and go to Europe!!
What? You can't drive to Europe?

Plan 'B'
Stanzie, what are you doing up there in first class?


What a fabulous rental car!!

Wyatt, did you bring the map?
First stop, Austria.
I heard they have sausage and beer here!!
Mom would really like these flowers.
Next stop, France!!
We should pick up a bottle for Mom and Dad, they like this stuff.
Final stop, Shropshire England!
You know who, lives here....
Stanzie told me to get lost, so she can have some alone time with George.
She looks pretty happy.

Best spring break ever!
Wyatt, Stanzie and George too :)

Get Up and Get Going!!

Most mornings, this is how I find my sister, Stanzie.
Under the down comforter and snoring like a chain saw...
real lady like..hee hee
C'mon get up.
We have places to go and things to see, Stanzie!!
Walkies to be had
Frogs to stand on.
Shopping at the Red Mill.
Perhaps you have seen some of these products in your grocery.
Bob's Red Mill, makes every kind of flour and grain product you could ever want.

I'm thinking we need to make dog treats......
See Stanzie, I told you it was worth getting out of bed for!
Great start to a great weekend!!
