We had the wonderful pleasure of sharing our home with my niece and nephew-in-love along with one of their furry children for 3 days. They are from St. Louis, MO, 5 hours away.
I'm not sure who enjoyed their time more, Jake and Jenn, just for getting away; their dog, Song, who got to run around, eat snow, and explore all the unknown on a farm; or me, just enjoying my time together with all 3 of them.
A week before they came, my niece asked if there was anything she could bring me from St. Louis. I said no, can't think of anything.... eeeerrrr.... I know, can you bring me The Arch???
(I should have known she would figure some way to induldge me my request!)
Here is a picture of Song, pit bull mix, and I. I fell in love with this furry friend. She is maybe 6 or 7 and she is the best behaved animal I have ever seen and what a little lover. Her mom and dad have trained her and she obeys commands like none other. We were instant pals.
They had a chance to relax, go exploring in Muscatine and the Quad Cities, go hiking in the woods to The Grotto. My son and his wife had us over for visit and supper.
And we had 2 new games to play!!
(These 2 have become favorites and are highly recommended)
Then they had to go home....
I didn't want them to go.....
I think they had fun and hope they will visit again.......
