Shrike is off work Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of this week, so we're thinking of trying to do a bit of a "staycation," but Peeper has swimming lessons each morning, and we've got other things going on Tuesday, so we'll have to see how it pans out.
However, we did get out and about today, even though Shrike had to work.
First we all went to the Elephant Museum for a look-see and, of course, some fudge.
We were out in the gardens when the owner came out of his house, heading over to the store. I pointed him out to Peeper and she headed right over to him. He was nice enough to take a photo with her.
As were these two
I was a little startled to see this guy in the outhouse.
Not Peeper, though. She just jumped right on in there to say hi. And then, "Excuse me, Mr. Man. I'm sorry I stepped on your foot."
She told us, "Hop aboard!"
Shrike had to head to work, but Peeper and I went out to a nearby nursery / orchard to pick blueberries and cherries. (MOMS Club is going next week, but we'll miss it because of swimming lessons.)
"Whew! That was quite a sweat!"
And, of course, cooling off with cherry ice cream.
