Who's The Boss?


This handsome guy is Sammy, Honey's brother from another mother. They get a long very well...most of the time. Honey isn't scared to let him know who the boss is.

HINT: The boss is always Honey Ham.

Back To School


Doesn't this look like a school picture for the yearbook?

Its almost back to school and back to work for us.

Lazy pool days are almost over. We are not emotionally ready to close the pool, pack up the floats or loose our golden tans! Pale is not a good color on us.

But back to school brings glorious autumn weather and after school walks. So we are thankful for that. Now if we could have nothing but sunshine and minimal humidity for these next three weeks we would be VERY happy!

Vermont Adventures: Burlington

I think Burlington might be our favorite city.

We love the Church Street Marketplace. There are tons of fantastic shops and restaurants.

Photobucket

That's Ham on Church Street. She was pretty popular there. Thankfully with Ham in tow, shopping has to be fast and furious as Honey doesn't like to wait too long while we browse.

Its a short walk to Lake Champlain and the awesome waterfront.

You know Honey is just thinking of ways to get herself into that water.

She is probably thinking that those ducks look like they would be fun to swim with!

So that was Burlington. We are really itching to get back up there since fall is around the corner. And really, what is better than Vermont in the fall?

Ham Phelps

We think she might be ready for the Olympics. Honey Ham Phelps!

Vermont Adventures: The River

At the Phineas Swann, towards the back of the property is the Trout River.

Photobucket

Its a nice, shallow little river. And since Honey Ham is to water as peanut butter is to jelly, we could NOT keep her out of it!

She had no problem navigating the rocks to get down into the river.

She thought about bringing the canoe with her.

Once she hit that cool river water she was in bulldog heaven!

But when it was time to get out and dry off, she had one of her tantrums.

Photobucket

Someone doesn't like the word 'NO'!

Photobucket

To review, Honey Ham has swam in rivers, oceans and pools. She would probably like to try a lake at some point, but we are not fans of lakes. Guess Honey Ham will have to use her puppy imagination when it comes to swimming in a lake. Poor, deprived Ham!

August Already?


Are you doing anything fun in August? Does anyone else out there have to go back to school in September? Let's hope August takes its time and doesn't rush us!
