The One After the Holiday

What a full weekend we had! First, mom was home since Monday afternoon, which we always enjoy! Unfortunately, the fun ends tomorrow when she goes back to work. It's probably for the best - we pups are exhausted!

Friday night the two-leggers enjoyed a Thankgsiving-dinner repeat.

Saturday started with papa trekking off to the woods out back to scope out deer. He was unsuccessful. I would go with him to help, I have a knack for stumbling upon deer, but he leaves SO early in the morning. The sun isn't even up yet! I helped him get ready and then cozied up to mom and Phoenix for a bit.

Then the day began! We had a nice breakfast and the two-leggers made a quick run to the aquarium store for some coral to add to the tank!

When they returned, papa and some friends went out to the National Forest to continue the quest. The evening brought Greenies and our favorite neighbors for a Wii Party! A great time was had - papa beat mom at boxing for the first time! Mom reminded me that it was not a knock out and her controllers were sluggish. (Excuses?)

Today was the last day of mom's break so we took care of some things around the house and played outside a bit. Phoeny loves playing in the petrified garden. Cali and I generally prefer to wait for her to make her loop around the fence but she clearly loves being so small among the tall plants!

The weather was beautiful! Mom did some more gender research and concluded that we do have two drakes. Evidently, one clear way to determine gender in ducks is by the sound of their quacks! For those interested, these are the quacks of male ducks!

Toward the end of the day, the two-leggers took a scenic drive to the waste transfer station, sadly, one of mom's favorite places. Click here to view some photos from their journey!
