27 Sep

…..

finally,  the rest of the pictures from our little road trip, pups included!!

enjoy!!!

…..

this is what you call a real pumpkin patch!

a local farmers market had a little farm on it with

goats, sheep, horses, donkeys, lamas, chickens, a couple ostriches and pigs of course.

this was the pups first encounter with other animals besides dogs.

they were so sweet, almost kissing!

avila beach. such a quaint little street with cute shops.

this is the tree that took james dean’s life, in a fatal car accident.

i love james dean and his movies. i once wrote a report in high school on his life and had to dress and act like him.

i was so intrigued by his story and even more impressed with his talent.

so tragic :(

so long california….. we’ll miss you

road trip….. part two….. pups first beach day

traveling with two large dogs can be a little difficult, but at the same time it does take  some stress off the mind, worrying about what’s going on with them back home.  this was our furthest adventure we had ever taken them on, and there was  a lot to be concerned about. the first leg of our trip we stayed with our friends who have three dogs: 1 blind, 1 deaf, and two of which are small. so you can imagine the stress we had of how our dogs would all get along together. despite our fears, it went wonderfully! they all just meshed so well and we could breathe a sigh of relief.  the second part of the trip was heading to the coast where we would stay in a dog friendly hotel. the first thoughts that went trough my head were, hairy, stinky, dirty rooms. boy was i wrong!!! we stayed at a hotel called dolphin bay and it was amazing. we had a whole little condo with a kitchen, living room, bed room, patio, dog beds and bowls and even a little box of dog treats. it was immaculate, and  the doors from the patio were two hundred feet from the bluffs. there was a path way that over looked the water and lead you down to a private little beach. words can not describe this view. but the thing that made this trip so amazing and worth the stress, was letting our pups run free on the beach and play in the ocean for the first time ever! this is definitely a trip we would consider doing again. and i would put this at the top of our list as one of our best trips to date!

a little road trip…. part one

17 Sep

visalia, california. a little town in the central valley surrounded by farmers and their cows. this is the town the husby first lived in 8 years ago when he moved to this country. and now after 6 years in vegas, we decided to take a little road trip to the valley. this being my first time there, i was a little hesitant because all the stories i had heard before made it sound like, (well for lack of a better word) a dump. but i have to say, i really enjoyed it. it was exciting to see the husbies old hangouts and even better to meet his friends. particularly his two friends who were so kind to open their home to us, james and michelle. they really made our trip so special, and i feel like i made some new friends my self. they own the quaintest little coffee shop on main street called tazzaria, that also serves food, and a pizzeria also on main street, called pizanos. delicious pizza, just like in naples.  here’s a couple pics from the first part of our trip, but stay tuned for more!!!

that’s james and michelle!

they roast their own coffee too!

tea
