Well, I FINALLY heard from mom. Apparently, they were having too much fun to upload photos. She said it's very hot and crowded so I have to concede it's best we skipped this one. Cali can't handle the heat and Phoenix and I can't handle the crowds - though for different reasons!
The first stop was papa's parents house in NJ. We've been there before but have NEVER seen the kind of wildlife there that the two-leggers saw this trip. Word is the three of us might scare them away. Doesn't that make you BOL? ME, Miss Zona who can be startled by her own shadow, scaring off a big bear?
First, another family was in their parking space...
Then a second family made a loop around the property, crossing right through the driveway.
Then a deer was spying on papa while he took a shower after dark.
Of course, even I can't forget this guy: a relative of my nemesis!
Wildlife aside, they had a good visit.

Early Friday morning, they left there to head to the No-Dogs-Allowed Festival.
More photos from Day 1? Click here. Wait... what is this?? This is Bubbles! Bubbles is a PET! I thought they said no pets??? I knew my two-leggers were stretching the truth! BOL!
I guess Bubbles is exempt. Lucky tortoise.
Part one of the festival: food. Mom's favorite part. BOL!
The festival officially opened today with lots of bands playing on a few different stages. I'll be waiting to hear from mom. Don't tell Cali but I'm glad to be home. So many people! And the picture of Wild Bill in the first picture above is a little alarming to me.
Both Saturday and Sunday there is also a horse show going on... now that is something that might make me reconsider my stance. I do love horses. AND mom said there are DOGS there with the horse folks. See? My two-leggers need to forget this music stuff and do more horsey stuff!
Meanwhile here at home, we patiently keep an eye out for our friends.
A bad storm blew through today so I opened the baby gate and the three of us hung out downstairs. BOL! That gate never stops me! What are they thinking? Too bad mom keeps the laundry room door closed. That's where she stores our extra bags of food. I know how to work the food bin too. Mom says I'm too smart for my own good sometimes but I think she's frustrated because I can outsmart her! Much like I can outsmart some of my poker buddies...
Whew! That was a long post! Time for a nap, right?
WHAT are the PEEPS thinking???
