Ducks & Dinner

Today was a beautiful day. Joe got off work early, so we headed to the park. We took Harley with us for the first time. We got her in October right before it got cold out, so we hadn't had the chance to take her anywhere. Like most dogs, she really enjoyed sticking her head out the car window as we drove.

This particular park has walking trails through the woods, and a creek that runs through it. The most important attraction to the girls is always the ducks.

They helped me push the wagon up the hill.

"Okay... Come back!"

After the park, we headed to the pet store to get some crickets for our leopard gecko, Dora. (Guess who named her!)

Summer read a book in the car.

We also got Jack a collar. Apparently part of the grieving process after losing a cat is to spoil your other pets.

I had made soup in the crock pot earlier in the day. Italian Zucchini and Bell Pepper Soup. It was really good, and healthy!

Camryn had wiped food in her hair so it was sticking up like a mohawk. I had to get a picture, despite her throwing a fit.

House update... So first, per our contract, we were supposed to close on the 5th. Then, last Friday, we were told that we would close Thursday or Friday of this week. Yesterday, we were told that we would definitely be closing next Monday. Today, we were told that now we don't know because the title company is waiting for documents to reach them after being shipped this morning. Needless to say... well... I don't think I need to say anything, that probably hurt your head to read so you know how I feel.

Tomorrow, my cousin Richard is going to come over after school so I can give him a mini cello lesson. I played the cello in my school orchestra for 7 years, and now as a freshman in high school, he is going to start playing. I have my own cello so I'm going to use it to teach him the basics before he has his first private lesson. He already plays the piano and guitar, so I'm sure he'll pick it up pretty quickly.

I think it's bedtime now, have a great night!

Great photos! I long to see grass again. Love your kitty's new collar, and yes they need to be spoiled.

Can't wait for good news on the house.

Your girls are always dressed so cute. The pictures were great...but Camryn's mohawk takes the cake! LOL

That soup looks FABULOUS. You should share the recipe, pretty please. :)

BTW, I had no idea you played the cello! Very cool. I played oboe and clarinet. :)
