A Little Taste of Spring

What a wonderful weekend!  Warm (upper 50’s) and without any snow or rain to drag down the warmth!

Home, Me and China went to the Arboretum for some “almost” spring fun.  It was 58 degrees but windy so it felt colder but since the three of us are used to cold temps it didn’t faze us at all.  The Roomies looked a little chilly though, lol.

There still plenty of snow laying about but we made the best of it.  It’s melting pretty quickly.  Just another sign that spring isn’t too far a way 🙂

There were plenty of places that had no snow.  China is getting her Buddha Chant on here.  I don’t think she knew I was taking her picture even though she looks like she’s posing for the camera.  She really meditating.  China’s deep like that!

We even got in some rock climbing.  Homie is an old guy but he’s still got it!

I thought China being made of glass would shy away from the rock climbing but she was the first one to the top of the cave.  You go girl!

It was a great weekend with friends!

ER With Less George Clooney and More Real Needles.

So back in August a friend of ours was in the hospital for a couple of days.  The Roomie is somewhat Childish so the following is what happened.

Chris wanted to be hooked up to the ‘blip’ machine.

Then she found out needles were involved and she fell getting out of the bed.

We put her back in the bed to rest a little after her fall.

Being drunk, as usual, Phinn thought it was awesome that the Bars were now providing places to ‘sleep it off’.  Um….no Phinn.

Our friend is fine now but when we saw the pictures we realized we forgot to share with the world the awesomeness of the hospital, lol.

Summer of 2013 – We Love Potato Chips

Shamy went on the Herr’s Foods Tour!

Shamy loved the fresh potato chips they gave them off of the conveyor belt.  They were AWESOME!

Herr’s Food Corporation is in Nottingham, PA and they make such tasty products as Potato Chips of all kinds (Sweet Onion is our favorite) and corn chips.  There was a nice video about the Herr’s Family and how the whole shebang got started.  If you are in Nottingham you should totally take the tour.  We learned a lot and ate potato chips…win/win!

Shamy Hits The Zoo

The Giraffes are so funny and fun all at the same time.  They have like the whole package.

Apparently Bjorn’s roommate seems to like sticking her face in things…I do not get it.

The Big Balloon wasn’t working yesterday.  I think it was because it was windy.  Maybe next time Shamy can get pictures of Town!

Bjorn and Teddy Go To Baltimore Inner Harbor

Bjorn and I went to Baltimore Inner Harbor this weekend with the Roomies.  It was pretty cool!

We went to the Aquarium...Jellie Fish are cool.

We had so much fun.  I can’t wait for our next Weekend Adventure!

So I have This Friend…

We were all hanging out, sort of like a mini-reunion.  Then my new friend Animal went berserk.  Its to be expected when your friend’s name is Animal.

Squeeze in for the picture everybody!

Really Animal?




I gave him a horseback ride and that seemed to make him happy.  A little later we had cake and the craziness started all over again!
