Lenny & Chic Playing after big snowstorm

We had our first big snowstorm last Fri (Dec 19/08) . . . . the College was closed at 3pm . . . . semi snowday!! The kids went out in the back yard the next evening & had a blast tearing around in the new snow. Chic found a ball buried under the snow and then Lenny proceded to try to get it from her . . . . to no avail!!









I love this pic!!

Ultimate Air Dogs - Ohio - Nov 22-23/08


Nov 22-23/08, we were off to Cleveland, OH to our first Ultimate Air Dogs event - what a great weekend! Cath & I, Lenny, Chic and Pip - road trip!!


We had an awesome weekend - Lenny came 1st in Master division Finals with a 22' 7" jump!!! We were given free toys when we registered, and one of them was a Jolly Ball - Lenny LOVES that thing! So we switched frsual newfie tennll to the new jolly ball and, I guess it paid off!!!

On the way home Sun night, we decided to stop off in Niagra Falls to see the Festival of Lights - I'm glad we stopped! It was beautiful! I can't remember the last time I was in Niagra Falls . . . . the main part of downtown sure has changed . . . . very glittery & tourist trap looking!! But, very impressive!! It was a really nice detour.

The Falls lighted - quite specatcular!
