Long Overdue

Hello everyone in Blog land! We are still alive and well over here at the Adventure Dog Blog. Things just got a little hectic the last month.

School ended which is always a chaotic time, final exams, report cards, meetings, packing up my classroom. On top of that one of our seniors passed away the day before graduation, which made the week even more difficult than it should have been.

A few days after school let out C and I flew back to Michigan for my father's and his mother's 50th Birthdays. Spent almost a week in MI, there are things I miss, but Michigan can keep the humidity, mosquitoes, and the allergens that make me feel like death. While we were there the boys got to stay at the Vet's. Our Vet is amazing and Bones loves it there, Bender isn't so thrilled being left anywhere without us for an extended time.

I can't believe school has already been out for a month! How time flies. I'm working a part time job to try and save up some money because they're cutting my pay this coming year. I'm still planning on starting Peabody Snarflenubbins & Co. I think I'll get baking tomorrow since I have to work today.

Now the reason you're all here some corgi! Yesterday C and I took the boys down to Centennial Park. When I say down I truly mean "down" as we live along the Snake River Canyon which is 500 feet deep and a quarter mile wide. It truly is one of the prettiest things about this town, too bad it's obscured by strip malls and traffic.

Walked around the park, laid in the shade, checked out the water - which Bender hates! All in all great family time at the park!

Perrine Bridge which leads into Twin Falls. Perrine Bridge is the only man-made structure in the United States where BASE jumping is allowed year-round without a permit.


  1. Yay, welcome back! :)

    And I'm sure your camera takes good enough photos for the calendar contest! Just send away and I will take a look. Doesn't hurt to try at least! :)

  2. glad you updated!! sounds like you were busy! Bender looks cute at the park and that park area looks so very scenic! what a shame they are cutting your pay next year; teachers seem to be underpaid as it is and then they take some of it away, doesn't seem fair to me


  3. It isn't fair that they are cutting your pay, but at least you've still got a job. So many teaching jobs around here got cut altogether... They even cut ALL the Aide jobs except the ones for the severely handicapped.

    So sorry to hear about the loss of your senior! Glad you had a good visit with your family, and these pics are really great of your Park, too!
