Vote for my Amelia, please!!

I entered Amelia into a contest to be on an upcoming issue of Parents Magazine. It works out perfectly, because you have to be available to travel to NYC in August, and I'll already be in Indiana! Will you please vote for her? You can vote once a day until May 9. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Take a walk with me!

Most days of the week, Amelia and I take a little stroll around our neighborhood. Join us!

My walking buddy usually conks out on me.

We call this street Barking Dog Lane, because it seems like every house has a yapping dog.


This house has a water bowl built into the side of their outer wall. They also always have some kind of food out for the strays in the neighborhood. It's usually pasta, but today, it's crackers!

I always come prepared...

Just a note: I don't feed the dogs behind gates. There is a pair of dogs kinda by our house and they are so sweet, so I usually give them some treats.


The other day, I stole flowers from this plant. I'm not sure if I was supposed to, but the damage is already done. They smell good!!

Our neighborhood is really hilly. I usually do lunges up this hill, playing peek-a-boo with Amelia... when she's awake. Hehe...

I think this is a cute house.

Hey look, my walking buddy's waking up!


When we get home, Nikko is always waiting for us by the door. He's such a good cat!


And finally, totally unrelated to our walk, this is how I found Amelia after she woke up from her nap yesterday. Houdini!
