We have posted about how hard we had to work on Saturday at WinterFest Smoky Style, but we think we can officially declare that we have recovered!

Ready to rumble, sister?

Ready to rumble, sister?

And how do we know? Let’s just say all of the usual games are back in full swing. Including, of course, our favorite game, tackle-wrestle-bitey face-body slam-tag-you’re it.

I am so much faster than you.

I am so much faster than you.

P.S. – You do see how hard Cheoah is laughing in the background, right? And how much Typhoon’s cocky grin has disappeared.

    Love the expression of focused intent on Frankie. Great capture.
    Love all your posts though I don’t comment often.
