A Weekend at the Farm

We spent the weekend at the farm. It was a much needed get away. We loaded up the hounds and off we went.

Bones is not impressed with having to share a crate with his sister, Crystal. “MOM! She’s touching me!”

The dogs were especially grateful when we arrived at the farm.

Bed time was cozy. Slept in the trailer and had the hounds with for a little cuddle time.

Great Night for a Walk

Springbrook Nature Center is a place I love to go walking through. Its 127 acres virtually in the middle of a pretty developed area including industrial, commercial and the railroad. Even so it is blissfully quiet and a chunk of heaven.

In 1986 a tornado spent 16 minutes ravaging the nature center. Even today you can still see some of the destruction.

Today presented an amazing opportunity to go exploring the nature center. The snow is finally gone (for the most part) and love is in the air…as you will see

 

As time goes on I will share with you the photos of the passing of the seasons. Enjoy some of the wonderful sights we got to see!
