Awesome Family Walk (Yes, All Six!)

We had an awesome family walk yesterday afternoon with all six of us, the first time in a few weeks (as we will explain why in today’s post).

The Whole Herd! An awesome family walk.

The Whole Herd! An awesome family walk.

We know what you are thinking – we have seen pictures like this before. True, but we haven’t had a total family walk in a few weeks.

As our seniors have aged, they haven’t been able to go quite as far, so Hu-Dad has been breaking the walks up into teams. Miss Kiska and Mr. Qannik enjoy their senior walk talk – at their pace and as far as they want to go.

But, yesterday, Miss Kiska and Mr. Qannik were both eager to go and so we took everyone on a single walk. We were happy to have the whole team together – as Typhoon explains in his play by play analysis that is important – to him – in every walk.

Hey, everyone, we are walking together! Awesome.

    Awesome to see the whole herd walking together. Did the Little Prince pull his usual walking backwards? Happy week though Hu dad will be blamed for the rain I’m sure.

      Of course the rain is Hu-Dad’s fault. (And of course the Little Prince did his usual).

The Queen and Decorum

Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
