What Have We Been Up To?

Whew. A whole week’s worth of Valentine’s Hearts for the Herd posts! Makes you wonder what have we been up to while that was going on.

Out hiking

Out hiking, of course!

Yes, we had a beautiful weekend. Sunny, blue skies, a dusting of snow. Ok, we would have preferred a blizzard being Siberian Huskies and all (and the fact that we have not had much snow this year at all – booooooo!), but we will take what we can get and go hiking.

Where's Typhoon

This is our Where’s Waldo parody – Where’s Typhoon? Look very closely to the far left.

Fortunately, this particular trail is right beside our house. It is a horse trail in the summer months, but we have it all to ourselves in the winter. Just perfect for a little family walk around the “neighborhood.”

Typhoon is back

Typhoon is back in the picture! Hu-dad says getting all 6 of us in the shot is a challenge.

Hope your week is off to a good start!

    I’m not sure, but I THINK I see just a glimpse of what MIGHT be Ty’s nose just above the end of Frankie’s tail!

    Yay! Hiking!

    Okay, I don’t see Typhoon at all in the first picture – what am I missing?

      Chuckling – yes he is barely there. Look at Frankie’s tail and you will see a bit of a black, Typhoon head. He just would not participate in the picture taking.
