Our Hike, Our Park...

Today we are joining all of Blogville for Hike in the Park Day!! Many thanks to GIZMO and FINN and Charley for hosting this special event. We are excited to share our amazing  park with you.

It doesn't take long to get to our or poppy just  open the back door and we're there!! Our park is open from sunrise to sunset, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. It's all ours.....3 years ago when we moved here mom had 2 requests--#1 she wanted a swing. Poppy was kind and gave her 3 (located at various spots in the park so the peeps can rest)  #2 mom wanted a groomed walking trail for walking in the park--she got it. Approx. 2 miles of trails.

Let's get started...

 We always have to stop and check out the woodpile for furry friends and 
to make sure there's enough wood to heat park headquarters!!

What do we have here???

Schatzie trying out the tree balance beam.

 Schatzie enjoys a dip in the creek

 the park is really just starting to green can see our 
park ranger/grounds keeper has mowed the path.
 Sometimes we like to walk on opposite sides of the creek :)

Park Headquarter and snack shop
 There's even an archeological dig in the park
It's really a badger hole...we can smell him!!

One of 4 swimming ponds

Hey Mom, say CHEESE!!!
we have a trail cam to spy  monitor the wildlife in the park
 Schatzie trying her paw at fishing---yes, there's fish in our ponds and 1000's of frogs

A breath of fresh air

 Near park headquarters you will find another swing calling your name.
You can enjoy the beautiful flowers and birds while the park staff fixes your breakfast or dinner.

 or you can just kick up your heels and let out a big WOOF!!

Hope you enjoyed your visit to our park. If you're ever in the area stop by and we'll give you a royal tour.

Remember at our park
collars and leashes are

P.s. Where's Sasha, I'm hungry!!

Been Busy.....change is coming!!!!

 Hey remember me.... it's me Gracie!!
I know you haven't seen or heard much from me lately.
We've been busy working out on the farm.
So much to do....smell and explore.
Schatzie and I are enjoying the spring like weather along with some of our feathered friends.
 These two Canada geese have been hanging out on our pond and leaving lots of goose poop!!
 this is a tree swallow that is competing with the blue birds for rights to the bluebird box.
 Poppa Bluebird isn't backing down, he claimed the house first.

The view from our swing

 Just enjoying the sunshine.

Momma says she's going to be making some changes to our blog...
should be revealed by the end of the month.

That's all for now...gotta go the sun is setting.


P.S. guess who got the first tick of the season????
and it wasn't me or Schatzie!!
