    Happy Happy New Year! We hope the year brings you everything you need … and maybe even want. Including the simple stuff, like lots of good sand for digging and beaches for running. Somehow we think you’ll make it happen!

    Happy New Year!

    Bunny says she hopes she can find that tunnel. It might make her dig to China go faster!

  22. Jan on January 1, 2011 at 12:20 pm

    Whatever they have found, I’m sure my dogs would love it (and I wouldn’t).

    We thought of you yesterday. In the middle of a snow storm a couple came through the park with two Sibs pulling an inflatable sled that was a perfect “Iditarod” look alike sled. It was only missing a platform out back for the musher. But it did have two small children riding on it. We were missing our camera, but we will be watching for it and try to get a photo of it for you.

    We were wondering the same thing as KB – but maybe you were really trying to get to Siberia:) Have a fun weekend and a wonderful New Year.

    Me and my Mom are still thinkin’ about our Rusty Revolutions and all the fun things we will be able to do in 2011.

    You guys can just dig up the whole beach if you want to!

    Kisses and Happy 2011,
