I Think I Smell Summer!

The weather was nice this weekend, so I spent some time outside investigating Daddy's new garden. He's growing vegetables for me!

Another exciting thing that happened this week is that we got carpet! My parents were tired of worrying about me slipping on the tiny spots of hardwood floor that were not covered by bathmats, so they broke down and bought a huge rug that covers the whole entire living room--with no gaps! Now I can run and play more than I could before. It is awesome. Look at all that soft fuzzy stuff:
And it matches my ramp, too!

On Friday we got to go visit my Grandma and Grandpa. They used to live only about five minutes away, but they moved last week. Now they live about 20 minutes away. I wasn't sure if I liked it at first, because it smelled all weird. But then I saw Grandpa getting some chicken ready to barbeque, and suddenly I started to like their new house a whole lot! I tried to be patient, but I don't think I did a very good job:
After it was cooked, Grandma gave me two little pieces! I officially declare that their new house is the best ever!

I hope everyone else had a nice week too!

My Camping Trip to Lake Tahoe

I had a really fun weekend camping in Lake Tahoe. We had a really relaxing time--we mostly just sat and read and ate snacks! We couldn't do any hiking because Mommy has a sort-of broken toe. But I was just as happy to spend the whole weekend sitting on laps and snuggling in the forest.

We got there pretty late on Friday because we had to wait to leave until Mommy got home from work. We set up the tent in the dark, by which I mean that Daddy set up the tent and Mommy and I sat and watched him. :) Then we had veggie dogs for dinner. Yum!

The next day we slept as late as we could even though there were like 10 kids in the campsite across from us and they started running around screaming at 7:00am. We had a slow morning and then we went into town to visit Dog Dog Cat, where I peed on the floor. Good times. After that display, Mommy and Daddy felt obligated to buy something, so they bought me a bag of Zukes treats and a new mini version of my Water Rover travel bowl:

When we got back to the campground, it was time for lunch, so we went down to the beach and had a picnic. This is a picture of me licking my lips after Daddy gave me a little bit of cracker to eat:
After lunch, Daddy went for a little hike by himself while Mommy and I relaxed and read a very interesting dog book. For dinner we had hot dogs again, but it was different because this time we roasted them on sticks over the fire, whereas the previous night we had cooked them on our campstove. Perhaps some might say that Mommy and Daddy are lazy and boring, but really only half of that is true!

When it got dark, I was ready to go to bed. Here I am getting all cozy and pre-warming the bed for Mommy and Daddy:

The next day we tried to sleep late again (loud kids again) and then we drove up to a different little town for lunch on our way home. We had bagels and hummus, and I got to have a tiny little bit. When we finally got home on Sunday evening, I was so tired (and dirty) that Mommy gave me a bath and then I did this for the rest of the night:

I hope everyone else had a good weekend too!
