Visiting Dad in Pennsylvania

November 7, 2010

I combined my trip to DC with a visit to my Dad’s house which is always a relaxing time with yummy food and lots of sleep!

I worked pretty much all week but one afternoon I said “forgetta bout it” and headed outside to be in the garden with my Dad.

My Dad’s land is totally fenced in which is so huge when the dogs are with me- they can romp around and explore and I don’t have to worry!

Dad played a little fetch with the tennis racquet and a modified frisbee.

Strider is more of a Labrador Receiver (i.e. he’ll catch it and then get bored, drop it, and wander away) but Sage loved it and is getting the hang of receiving!

We took a break and basked in the fall sunshine

Dad was doing some pre-winter weeding to clean up the beds

We also dug up some plants to put them in the greenhouse to sleep for winter πŸ™‚

A little wrestling πŸ™‚

Sage follows my Dad around pretty much wherever he goes – it is very sweet πŸ™‚

Oh Sage. She’s a special one πŸ™‚

(I guess I should give her credit for finding the most secure way to hold this thing!)

Keeping an eye on Dad in the garden

While the gnome keeps his eye on other things πŸ™‚

I distracted Sage momentarily but then it was back to stalking Strider πŸ™‚
