Mother's Day Hike (I know it's late) & Fun With the Girls

On Mother's Day, my furiend Sierra and I along with our Moms went for a hike through this meadow that was just bursting with wildflowers! It was grrrreat! Ok, who am I kidding....the best part was that it was bursting with bones and other tasty treats that the elk left behind. BOL!

I am stalking the bones while Sierra is the lookout in case any humans try to shoo us away before we can get our prize. :)

Success!


But wait, what does Sierra see?


Real, live elk!!!

And there were lots more where that one came from. :)



The hills are alive with the sound of music! ;)




Last night, Gracie's humans came over but she stayed at home. We had a great time. The girls did a little grass kayaking while I ran "hot laps" around them. It was soooo much fun!

What an awesome life you have Nala! I'm glad you and your mom had a fun beautiful mother's day. sorry i haven't had much time to visit your adventures. But I wanted to take a moment to tell you to come to my blog and see pictures of how great O'Reilly's brother Sam is doing. I thought you might enjoy that!

Ruby and Penny said...

Hi Nala
Those bones look so yummy. You always have the best adventures.
Love Ruby & Penny

Kathryn and Ari said...

I love those kayak pictures. But Ari didn't get that far in her reading: she's too distracted by the idea that a meadow could grow bones and real, live elk!

Life With Dogs said...

What a joyous photo essay this is. I can't imagine what our dogs would do if they saw Elk. They'd probably hide behind me.

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

I'm going to have to have a talk with my mom. We never hike anywhere with bones!
